This was a fantastic book. I have always been a big fan of magic and this book was part memoir, part the art of performing magic, part science, part math, and he did a great job of tying them all together. I loved learning about the underground scene and all the different viewpoints on performing and revealing the secrets behind magic. It reminded me a lot of "Moonwalking with Einstein" and in fact he had to use some of that author's techniques to complete one of his main magic tricks. Highly recommended as a great nonfiction read.
