This book is about the most in depth, powerful information on deception that is available today. Then, it puts that information into practice with two world-class magic effects. The theory goes into detail on what makes magic, magic. Every aspect is addressed. It includes, how you appear, how your voice sounds, and information about subtle hand motions that affect what your audience thinks. It discusses what goes on in your mind that affects what happens in the minds of others. This is the theory of magic deception. The second part of the book is dedicated to the practice of magic deception. First, a time-tested method to cause a coin to disappear is presented. This is an extensive lesson with many pictures and many details of the very subtle motions involved. Then, an effect is presented that brings the theory of the first part of the book to life and utilizes the student's new ability to cause a coin to disappear. The book ends off with an effect called Zen Matrix. This new routine enhances the half-century-old Matrix routine that has become so popular in magic. Zen Matrix utilizes the theory presented in the first part of the book to magnify the power of the Classic Matrix routine. This book is an excellent beginning for those new to magic. It starts from square zero and accelerates the newbie into master class. The coin vanish taught requires little dexterity. The trick using that move is very basic requiring moderate skill. Zen Matrix requires patience to master. That is expected with an effect as powerful as this. Its mastery may well be worth it for when performed for any group of magicians, the reward will be recognition of your capability as a master magician. Experienced magicians will recognize the theories of Al Schneider but will find that knowledge to be a starting point in this book. This book takes new information Al discovered about how the mind works that has not been incorporated into the material over the last fifteen years. In addition, the experienced magician will find Zen Matrix to be a valuable addition to the Classic Matrix concept. This is not a standard book on magic.
