Taken From the Foreword By Paul Vigil
The greatest compliment I can give about the material of Bill's is that I use it. Not only do I use it, I use quite a bit of it A LOT. I don't mean I use it toying around with my magical peers at meetings or conventions, but that I use it in paying circumstances during my formal show at The Mirage on the Las Vegas strip.

Bill builds solid routines with solid presentations, and he leaves very little out; blocking, script, bits of business--these aren't pipe dreams that have only been performed at the armchair in a Canadian living room; this is in-the-trenches material for the real world. He has a wonderful sense of playfulness and fun that doesn't stand in the way of the magic staying strong. The whats, wheres, hows and whys are covered (which, unfortunately, are more and more being left out of our literature) allowing you a nice peek into what makes him tick. To me, this is a very important aspect of our Art; seeing the evaluations that've been made for aesthetics, where the sacrifices have been compromised and how the onus of the effect is dealt with.

Here you'll find not only great routines you'll also discover, like the rest of this series, wonderful and practical essays on topics that could only be covered by someone who's really been there.

If I haven't made it obvious: I like Bill, and I like his magic... I'm completely positive you will, too.

Paul Vigil,
Las Vegas 2010
