In Designing Miracles, Darwin Ortiz continues the task he began in Strong Magic: to explore and raise the level of craft in magic. This time he presents a groundbreaking study of how laymen think and what it takes to amaze them.

Darwin has earned a reputation for creating some of the strongest card effects in modern magic. In Designing Miracles, he reveals for the first time the principles and techniques that he follows in doing so. These insights will help you choose stronger effects, create stronger effects, and strengthen those effects that you've already performing.

If you've ever been puzzled by an audience's reaction or lack of it, this book will dispel the mystery. It gives you a new set of tools for understanding how magic works, why it sometimes doesn't, and how to make it work better. Never again will you be at a loss as to why an effect isn't playing well. Never again will you be at a loss as to what to do about it.

If your goal is to provide your audiences with an unforgettable experience of impossibility, you'll find Designing Miracles filled with insights to help you do so. It will teach you how to use the audience's own thinking patterns against them. It will show you how to turn puzzles into miracles. It will do something that few magic books can: change with way you think about magic.

"Here we have an outstanding new book by one of the modern-day masters of card magic, Darwin Ortiz. Darwin lays out a new way of looking at how the mind is fooled. You will look at magic effects differently, and your thinking about magic will be stimulated and challenged. Without studying the principles set forth in this book, no magical education can be complete. Books like Designing Miracles, and Strong Magic that came before it, are more rare and important today than ever before."- Whit Haydn

The Most Important Book On Magic Theory Since Strong Magic!

If you want to perform for real people and fool them succesfully this is the book to buy ! some people won't bother to read this wonderful magic book becuase they don't think very highly of Darwin Ortiz, My opinion of him does not matter and yours should not either. When Judging good advice i truely belive it does not matter who provides it , some say that Ortiz is dry, speaks in a monotone voice and presents magic in a very dry boring manner. I completly disagree , however I understand where the people who think this way are coming from, but let's listen to the facts please Ortiz is a professional and it shows , Ortiz performs almost exculsivly for real lay people and we should listen ! With all that being said , when reading this book , read activly and feel free to talk back to him, write footnotes and use a highlighter marker as well. the re is more to this book than just theory, it is theory in practice and it is colored with more than a few examples for every concept explained. Moreover Ortiz creates a whole new langauge of terms and concepts that I believ magic should adopt, while every other profession or craft has its own terminology magic is borrowing from too many fields (Kane,2007 ). We should all read this book , it is that important, i truely belive it will lead to better communication amongst magicians .. Just my two cents Magicmatan

Are You Serious? Darwin Ortiz is! He is so generous to share these insights from Years of performance! Twiice the price would still be fair! DO NOT Expect fast easy reading and lots of tricks. His book "At the Table" does that. Get that and "Strong Magic" Too! IF You are Serious! Designing Miracles helps us to take the spectator's view and expentations into our design and presentations. Get Serious!
