There have been a number of Ãintroductionsà to magic published, but we never felt they hit he right note. We have always felt the need of a Ãfirst bookà for the newcomerÃa primer, as it were.Frances Marshall has now put together (as her fifteenth book,) a volume that will take the newness and strangeness out of the world of magic.With the aid of Jay Marshall, she has arranged a glossary of words and terms that are familiar to the initiated magician, but gibberish to the newcomer to our field.The book begins when laymen (young or old) Ãdiscoverà magic. Maybe they see a TV spectacular, or a big magic show, or a friend fools them with a trick. They feel the urge to Ãdo something about it.ÃThe Primer leads them, step by step into magic. It tells them what is inside the world of magic and how they can be part of it - the clubs, organizations, the many tricks, the future possible, options and possibilities are explained and discussed. There is good solid advice from professional Jay Marshall, to lead the newcomer in the right path.Then ÃThe Language of MagicÃ, in alphabetical arrangement, explained so it will never be foreign again. Following that, the kinds and types of tricks are explained, leading to a ÃProgram for a Little Stand Up Show,à easy to do, routined, patter ideas given.Finally a very explicit section by Bob Miller, on ÃMagic, The Wonder-Full Hobby.à All the facts that make magic an art are there. Plus, this section could form the basis for a superlative talk on magic suitable for any group, or for a media interview at any level. Last, a bibliography leads the reader into the world of magic books.Nothing like ÃThe Magic Primerà has ever been printed. And you donÃt have to be Ãnewà to benefit by reading it! 8 1/2x11à pages.
