"If I had to sum up the intent of the book in a sentence I would put it like this: Creating Magic with Impact is written to help you unleash your creativity and think carefully about the presentation of your magic. And for my money it achieves that target pretty well.
If you’re the sort of person that just performs tricks ‘out of the box’ with the supplied ‘patter’ don’t bother. But if you’re the sort of person who likes to think carefully about their routines and scripts then I would highly commend spending a few hours of your time with this book."

"...if you enjoyed Mr. Parker’s original M-U-M column, you’ll want this book for the new and improved essays and additional effects. Or if you’re interested in learning how to improve your magic and possibly yourself, and you haven’t read any previous books on the subject, Performing Magic with Impact is a good place to start." -Ryan Matney, Genii Magazine
"...if you haven’t read Parker’s work before, there is a lot to be unpacked in these 134 pages; and I believe it is well worth your attention. It is an outstanding addition to the body of literature that focuses on improving performance to make our sleights all the more effective and help turn it into something even more extraordinary for our audiences." -Jason Goldberg, Linking Ring Magazine
