My books discuss the science, history and methods of magic to inspire magicians to further their craft. My books also show how magic and science relate to each other. Magicians use science to create the illusion that the laws of nature have been broken. Scientists study how magicians are able to create these illusions.
The Box Goes-In-Da Box—A treatise on the Gozinta Boxes
