Aug 15, Derrn Browns Pure Effect was one of the most thought provoking reads I have enjoyed in a long time.
Can anyone tell me about his newer book, Absolute Magic? Reviews and rundowns welcome. I am expecting my copy any day now. I will post my thoughts when I have finished it. It seems like, from the description, that it’s similar derrne “Strong Magic” by D. This is one I am looking forward to.
Regards, LLoyd Experience teaches only the teachable. Aldous Huxley – Aug 16, A very informative, interesting and inspiring book.
It really makes you think about your role as a performer. Beautifuly written, funny, and thought provoking. A great bit of information on Pickpocketing also. No tricks, but this is worth derrenn to me than great tricks. Aug 18, Dec 30, I have not read this book but my friend says that he was disappointed because it does not have any actual tricks.
Absolute Magic: A Model for Powerful Close-Up Performance by Derren Brown
Dec 31, I have Pure Effect and I enjoyed that tremendously although I don’t actually use any of the tricks written up in there. It would be nice to know how Absolute Magic compares to Strong Magic though. Has anyone who has read them both like to make a comparison? Perhaps Aabsolute is better from the standpoint that the writer actually employs the ideas and theories he pens onto paper. Jan derfen, I would aabsolute that Absolute Magic is better than Pure Effect – there are tons of books full of sbsolute tricks, but very few that discuss the subject matter covered herein.
Not only is the material thought-provoking, but it is also written in Derren’s unique and humorous style. Absolute magic is a very interesting book. Although Derren seems to have raised the bar in magic so high that even he does’nt qualify!. He states that he only does his own material these days. One piece he does is the wonderful PK touch’s by Banachek. It is a book worth reading. Some of the humour will not translate very well for American readers though.
It is a totally underrated book. Every magician should reflect on his thoughts and suggested frame work for what we do. Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: Jan 3, btown Mark, did you mean to say that Absolute Magic is better than Strong Magic or are you actually just comparing absolute Magic with Derren’s previous book, Pure Effect?
Jan 5, Jan 6, He comes at most things [not all] from a mentalist view. Not so much coins or cards or lil red balls!. Best of all is dergen books from Eugene Burger.
Derren Brown’s Pure Effect and Absolute Magic?
Just my 2 Euro cents Jan 7, Jan 12, Clarifies the importance of believability in presentations,and much much more. NO “Keep it as simple as possible, – but no simpler” http: Who is John Galt? That’s because it’s not a book of “tricks”.
It focuses mahic Derren’s own model of how magic should be performed. MarkFarrar Veteran user U. Markymark Inner circle Posts. Mr Amazing Special user Posts. That’s not a friend. Jason That would make the performer better, not the book, no? It is more “the big picture” than Ortiz book.
As I interpret it.
