‘Before I read it, I didn’t understand misdirection, It has given me an insight into how magic is performed. For example, I never understood how the magic trick The Topsy Turvey Card worked, the first trick in the Royal Road to Card Magic, until I read this ebook and learned about the offbeat and relaxing.’ – R Lawson
‘Just to let you know, that I am still enjoying practising my magic. The ebook on misdirection that you’ve sent me had really helped my understanding of how I should portray/perform my routine. Thanks!’ – M Ontong
