|Robert E. Neale is a prolific creator of magic tricks and presentations, which are performed by magicians all over the world. He is also a leading philosopher of magic whose theoretical writings are helping performers better understand the work they do and expand its range to be more interesting, diverse, and meaningful.|
In this collection, Bob Neale shares his latest work on both sides of his magical mind. Magic Matters contains over forty new tricks, each one with a fully developed presentation on a wide variety of themes. It also contains eleven theoretical essays on topics central to thinking magicians: for some examples, gift magic, humor, wonder, dark magic, and play.
This remarkable book offers an abundance of riches for people who love magic. Just as the performance of a master magician, it will delight, challenge, and inspire you. You, your magic, and your views about magic will not be unchanged.
Indeed, magic matters!
