Words of Praise for Creating Theatrical Magic

Wayne Kawamoto, about.com (Magic and Illusion):  “Max Howard’s Creating Theatrical Magic is a landmark book that discusses in-depth the synergistic merger of theater and magic. This is accomplished by watching and then studying Howard's stunning production of The War Wizard . . . .  I highly recommend this book.”

Eric Mead, Genii Magazine, February 2015:  "This is an important book for anyone who wants to communicate with an audience and present powerful magic, regardless of their desire to 'do theater."  This is not a book of theory, it is a practical manual for performers."
