One of the most neglected and misunderstood aspects of performing is: What do I say - how do I say it - and why do I say it? In other words - SCRIPTING!
This ebook is written for the magician who performs for people and wants to have better patter than just
"Hey, wanna see a trick?" It's written to be used by a performer who wants to amuse, entertain, and add an extra layer of deception to his magic.
It's for the magician who wants to have a "reason" for the magic. Performers who want to try and reach
their audience at an emotional or intellectual level.
This ebook shows you how a script is written for a magic trick, using a real life example. This example was written WHILE the book was being written using the exact methods shown.
