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!
