Book Review: Bringing Magic to Life

Ungar’s presentations are generally clever and well thought out, and there are ideas and themes that will appeal to a wide range of performers. Some presentations are geared too much towards Ungar’s personality and profession as a doctor, and a few are straightforward and rather disappointing. But overall, Ungar is far more “hit” than “miss.”

Even if you don’t use Ungar’s presentations, you’ll learn about close-up effects that he feels are strong, and probably glean some presentation ideas and angles that you can use on other effects that you already perform. This book is a worthwhile and thought-provoking read that can improve the way you present magic.
