How to Levitate and Other Great Secrets of Magic

You cannot arrive at the truth unless you eliminate the false, says James Talbot who has written a book revealing magic tricks

Magic evokes a sense of wonder in us all. We would all like to try our hand at magic tricks — nothing like a book to tell us. How to Levitate and Other Great Secrets of Magic is proceeds to do just that. The slim book makes for easy reading. It is a journey of discovery that will bring the enthusiast to truth.

“It is similar to any scientific exploration,” says author James Talbot. The tricks have all been tried out by Talbot.

One can try out the tricks as all the contraptions needed are clearly indicated in the book marketed by Coorg-based Magenta Press. The 57-page book is priced at Rs. 149. The deep thought behind the exercise Talbot says is “You cannot come to the truth unless you eliminate the false. The book was written 15 years ago and the reason I chose a Western pen name was that magic uncovered by a Westerner always gels well with most of us.”
