"This book is about blood, sweat and tears. It's about the incredible hard work Morgan and West have put in to creating a very unique niche act for themselves. It is rare that such pros give away not just their tricks, but the real secrets to their success, and this book does exactly that. The advice in this book is taken from years of work and performing. From getting things right and getting things wrong. They hold nothing back and it's like having a private masterclass and able to go back to it at anytime. During this crazy lockdown THIS is the book I've been really getting in to. The bonus video of their full act really makes this the full package as far as a product goes." -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
