"This is really some of the finest information I have ever read on being a performing magician. Here are the tips that you can ONLY get from years of performing experience. The magic world doesn't need new books on tricks, it needs more books like this one!! This is magic in the real world of performance."
"Eric Henning is a professional magician from Maryland. You may know him from his "Financial Wizard" column that ran in Jim Sisti's Magic Menu. In August of 2003, Mr. Henning set himself the task of writing a book of practical tips and suggestions for working magicians. For each of 30 days he contributed an article to Bruce Barnett's Electronic Grymoire.
"The result of this endeavor is TIPS: Real-World Ideas from a Working Magician. The contents range from finding a good pair of shoes, taking care of your voice, pocket management, and how to assemble the components of a wireless PA system for $100. In addition to the nuts-and-bolts advice there are also some practical routines, including a memorable effect that gets your business card into the spectator's hands using an overlooked slum magic item.
"This is a really fine book of advice that will save you time, energy and potential embarrassment. TIPS...is a real bargain. You can find it online at www.thewand.net."
