Magic by Misdirection by Dariel Fitzkee – Book

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I can start by summarizing the entire book in just a few words, ” You must trick your audience to be a magician”. This book was fktzkee more than the author patting himself on the fitziee for previous works. Without saying it fitzke out he tries to make the reader feel like they will be too stupid to read this book unless they have read his other works with quotes like ” Unless you read MIND TRICK you might not fully understand “. The first 14 chapters are ALMOST nothing but the author telling you how great his previous two books are and how much you should read them with very little content on magic.


It isn’t until you get somewhere past chapter 14 that you get into the heart of what the entire book should have been about. I am a magician looking to expand my knowledge base for my routine. I was hoping this book would help me understand my own misdirection ability. The only thing that I took away from this book was watch where your eyes look because that is were the audience will direct their attention.

The only other saving grace of this book was when it talked about magci and different ways to lull the audience’s attention away from what you are doing. I feel very cheated to have bought this book and fitzker the few hours it took to read just to come away with such little information. I do not recommend this book for magicians of misdirecrion age. Exactly what is expected. Magic and deception are not an art about sleeving or double bottom, traps and mirrrors.

It’s the art of taking people into their own dreams where attention to the secret movements, tricked props etc becomes secondary. Misdirection is the word magicians use to wrongly route spectators’ attention, focusing it byy where it supports the dream. This book is not an how to book but it’s one of the best analysis of what misdirection is.

The art of misdirection is what makes the difference between a guy doing tricks properly or badly and a true magician.

The two other books in the trilogy are the Trick brain which classifies every magical effects and the author’s book on showmanship. Anybody seriously interested in magic or deception politics, military and business strategies should know this unknown book.


Magic ain’t pulling rabbits out of a hat. Magic is all about manipulating what people see.

It’s directly applicable to politics, fist-fighting, advertising, seduction and a whole host of other human activities which require the attention of one or more participants. Reading this book has changed my outlook on things like few have. Learning to live it will require much study. If you look at politicians and captains of industry, many of them will actually admit to being amateur magicians.

There is a misdirectiob for this. It’s not just a nerdy hobby. It’s a way of looking at the world which is very powerful indeed. The other volumes are also OK, but they don’t hold the attention like this one does. This is the core to it all.
