"It’s nice that even after he has gone, Eugene Burger has found a way to keep asking us: What do you want your magic to be?" -John Lovick, Genii Magazine
Published by Theory and Art of Magic Press
From the beginning of his illustrious career, Eugene Burger has demonstrated that performing magic is different from presenting a trick or a puzzle. It requires that we genuinely astonish people with an experience of the impossible.
But how can we learn to perform magic that meets this high standard? Who can teach us how to do so? In this book for students and teachers of magic, master magician Eugene Burger explores the path for learning how to perform magic that has exceptional impact on our audiences.
Includes: 7 previously unpublished routines and access to videos of Eugene performing 5 of the routines.
Hardcover: 6" x 9", 182 pages Note from Lawrence Hass, September 23, 2017:
In early 2017, Eugene Burger and I started working intensely on this book, Teaching Magic
. It was sent off to the printer before the diagnosis of his terminal illness, and so it is untouched by awareness of his death, which occurred on August 8, 2017. This book is an extraordinary, poignant testament to an important part of Eugene's legacy. WHAT MASTER MAGICIANS ARE SAYING ABOUT TEACHING MAGIC:

, once again reveals why Eugene Burger is one of our most important Magical Artists." - Lance Burton

"Thank you, Eugene! Thank you for your shared wisdom and also for always showing us, complete and alive, the thread of Magic Illusion!" - Juan Tamariz
