This book should be required reading for all magicians. It puts the focus where it should be... on laymen, and how they precieve our magic. Many people discredit Darwin Ortiz because he is a "card guy" and his style is a little slower. I can testifiy that his magic is very effective and entertaining to laymen. Also, this book is not a card book, although he gives some examples from his own work, he doesn't stop there. He pulls examples from all over the world of magic, to illustrate succinct practical theory and aplications to make your magic better. In my opinion his writing style has become more relaxed and easier to read and grasp then it was in strong magic. I really enjoyed strong magic and have read it several times, however I feel Designing Miracles is even better then strong magic. It is really a companion to strong magic touching on different topics and considerations while occasionally clarifiying certain things from strong magic and referring you back to Strong Magic. Both books should be read and studied. You may not agree with everything Darwin has to say... but that's good. If it makes you think about your magic and look at how laymen precieve our magic, then it is priceless. I feel certain that this book will be considered along the lines of the fitzkee trilogy, Nelms Magic and showmenship, and the books of wonder in years to come. It is just as valuable of a voice on practical applied theory as the other mentioned sources. I know that is a bold statement, but I really feel this book is that good. It stimulates thinking and action to make magic better, and for my money that's a bargin.
