Darwin Ortiz's seminal Designing Miracles has been heralded as one of the finest books ever written on magic theory. In many ways it is a "first" in magic philosophy, moving beyond presentational theory and exploring the very structure of magic effects. It is fitting then, that we present another first by offering this neo-classic as an audio book.
Enthusiastically narrated by Darwin himself, these MP3 files provide the complete text of Designing Miracles, which you can enjoy in the car, on your phone, or on the go. Better still, there is brand-new, bonus material in which Darwin reflects and expands on the book's underlying concepts.
This audio book offers a brand new way to digest magic theory. We believe that the best way to digest this invaluable material is to listen to the author explain his ideas with passion. We also relish the opportunity to pose new questions to Darwin on the subject of making magic more powerful, which he answers exclusively in this new collection.
- Over EIGHT HOURS of narration
- Over an hour of NEW material
- In universal MP3 format (compatible with Mac and PC)

Roberto asks: Hey guys,
Hope all is well. I have purchased this audiobook and it's great however, I'm trying to figure out how to add this to my iTunes library so that I can not only listen to it in my car but be able to rewind a particular track, etc.., just like I do with my music in iTunes. Any idea on how I can accomplish this? Many thanks!
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Hi Roberto. This would be something you would need to work out on your computer with the software you are using there. Sadly we do not provide iTunes support.
Customer reviews for Designing Miracles Audio Book
I downloaded this two days ago and have already listened to the entire thing. I read Strong Magic but haven't read Designing Miracles yet. But now there is no need thanks to Vanishing Inc!
Darwin Ortiz narrates this audio book with passion and enthusiasm. I can't think of a better way of learning these theories.
Thank you Vanishing Inc! What a great idea! Now when are you going to do Strong Magic?!
I loved this book when I read the first 4 or 5 times. Now I'll be returning to it more often! I'd LOVE to see you guys do more theory books like Strong Magic, Magic by Design, The Magic Mirror, and Maximum Entertainment! Really well done!
Absolutely first-rate. What a great thing you guys are doing. You take an important book and what do you do? You go out and get the AUTHOR to read and expand it. Love it. Keep it up boys!
I have a long drive to work every day and I always dreamed of finding a way to improve my magic during this otherwise "dead" time. Thanks! This is awesome.
This is amazing!!! My favorite magic book and I've already listened to almost the whole thing. PLEASE do more books in this format!!!
This in my opinion is the most important book on magic theory. I have read the book a few times when it was released, and i took an immense pleasure listening to the audio format. It's great to hear it read by the author himself.
Technically, there are a few problems, sound quality issues, and editing mistakes. But that's very rare and not at all important.
Do yourself a favor and read or listen to this book.
Any plans of releasing an audio version of Strong Magic ?
I have listened to this twice now and absolutely love it! Hearing the book is great all by itself, but hearing straight from Mr. Ortiz's mouth is like having a private session with him. Something I could only dream about. There are a couple segments where the sound quality changes, but not enough to detract from the enjoyment at all.
I commute around 25 hours a week and a book like this is a treasure for sure. It takes me two days of commuting to listen to an 8 hour book. I am really hoping that there are more like this in the plans for future release.
As with all material from Darwin, if you are serious about your craft, then add this to your resources. You will not regret it.
GREAT IDEA!! Perfect book make into an e-book. Please coerce Darwin to do Strong Magic as well. So great to ponder this groundbreaking material when driving and suffering on the elliptical…and please do "Magic In Mind"!! THAT would be an awesome project, and I'd gladly pay for it. Heck, I'll even do the readings for you for nothing! I think the community would love it (well, not my voice, but anyone!).
This is a great deal! If you haven‘t yet read the book, buy the audio version! It will make you think a lot about your and other people‘s magic and lets you refocus on what is really important. Personally, I also had a lot of fun thinking about effects that use the principles taught in this book.
I have read the hard-copy book (cover to cover) 4-5 times and wondered if I would enjoy the audio-book, as I don't usually listen to them.
What a pleasant experience! Darwin narrates his book with great clarity and passion. I noted (for people who only have the hard-copy) that there are a few sections of new material (not in the original book) added to this excellent audio-book, which is a great bonus.
I absolutely love this. I am a beginner magician (been practicing a year) and fell in the traps of the last effect frenzy and sleight of hand mania. This book really helped me realize many key concepts and the audio version is a delight to listen to.
If there is any plan for recording Strong Magic, I would absolutely love it. I also bought Maximum Entertainement and am actually eager for any of the other classics of magic theory like Dariel Fitzke or Juan Tamariz !!
Do I sound excited ? Because I am.
