Working With Genius - David Hemingway

  • Full of professional routines
  • Magic for the 'stand up magician'
  • Complete transcript of David's lecture included

Note from Martin:

The book is supplied with a link to a video containing over 90 minutes of routines from the book performed and explained by David in front of an audience of magicians, plus an interview of David, by Donald Bevan.
This talk alone is worth the price of the book, here for instance is what the great magician and entertainer, Paul Daniels wrote in 2014 after David sent him a DVD of the talk its release...
'A couple of days ago I received a DVD from International Magic by David Hemingway and Donald Bevan. It is called The Magic Fly on the Wall and even though the sound is a bit up and down my wife and I absolutely loved it, and believe me, that is VERY rare when watching magic stuff.
David holds nothing back and says it like it is. There are no tricks on it; it's a discussion about his long life in magic BUT if you listen and watch through the eyes of a pro there are dozens of hints and tips that all of us should be thinking about and applying to our performances and even about our magic clubs.
This is a great video and I have no financial interest in it whatsoever.'
Paul Daniels
