  1. Alright people. I found the best book for magicians. Its not about coins. Its not about cards, and its not about toothpaste magic, which ive heard is picking up. The whole book is about CREATIVITY. 40 rules on nothing but how to do what you love uniquely, and succesfully. Here are just some of my favorites.

    -The idea doesnt have to be big, it just has to be yours.
    -Everyone is born creative;everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.
    -Keep your day job.
    -The more talented someone is, the less they need the props.
    -Sing your own voice.
    -Dont worry about finding inspiration. It will come eventually.
    -The best way to get approval is to not need it.

  12. In fact having now read this book I have decided to take the advice therein. "Don't try to stand out from the crowd; avoid crowds altogether." Coupled with something Derren Brown mentions in Pure Effect, it seems to me that the obvious solution is... obvious.
    I will be leaving Theory11.
