These are the lecture notes for a lecture Charlie Miller gave at Magic Inc. in 1967. He offers great insight into the art of magic, presentation, routining and audience management. He also teaches several great tricks.
Also included is a six page essay by Roberto Giobbi titled "Charlie Miller's Wisdom". (This essay originally appeared in two installments within my column "The Genii Session" in Genii - The Conjuror's Magazine, May and July 2005. It appears here in a slightly revised form and in agreement with Richard Kaufman and his Genii Corporation.)
