Introduction by Paul Daniels

For vie, David Berglas was \n early hero. As a young man. he birst onto television with magic that was unlike the magic being performed by anyone else. That is a lesson in itself. Sure, he was good looking, but that isn't always enough. He really knew what he was doing.

So, to get a book like this, from a professional magician, is wonderful because it reaches you not just the methods, but also the thinking behind the methods. Study the thinking and you are taking a big step along the road towards better magic. Here's a chance to learn the real secrets of magic, w hich are not simply how David's tricks worked, but much more why David chose to do it that particular way.

If you really learn from this book you will take his details and worry them until you have come up with your own presentations to suit your own style. To do any less would be letting down this master of magic and mentalism.

We know that magic is the very Stuff of dreams, and David Berglas is a master dream-maker. That's why it's now a case of "Oh, lucky us!" 1, for one, am glad that 1 had the opportunity to read this book. After a lifetime in magic, I still find stuff to learn.
