More About the Author

Mitch Williams is an international award winning magician and sleight of hand artist, an inspirational speaker, and an authority on creativity, personal transformation, and peak performance. For over thirty-five years, he has been an avid student of cutting edge information on human development, transformational psychology, future studies, and psycho-spirituality.

Not to be confused with that other "wild thing", Mitch does not play baseball, but he is involved in other athletic and many more cerebral endeavors.

As an entertainer, he has performed for audiences throughout the US and Canada, in Japan, and in Europe. Mitch has been featured on the same bill with such notable celebrities as Doug Henning, Penn & Teller, Lance Burton, Elaine Booslier, Rosie O'Donnell, Marty Allen, Jeff Dunham, and Dennis Miller. And he has also appeared on television programs on Fuji-TV and NHK-TV in Japan and on the series, Aixo es Massa, on TV3 in Spain.

As a speaker, Mitch has presented seminars and workshops, which combine his astounding magic with uplifting and thought provoking messages on the "real magic" within and around us, for corporations, service organizations, and other groups throughout the country, to rave reviews. Mitch's corporate clients include such notable companies as Merrill Lynch, Nissan Motors, Nestle, Morgan Stanley, Hallmark Cards, Caterpillar, RLI Corp., Horace Mann, Dean Witter Reynolds, Kraft Foods, and many, many more.

Psychologist and author, George Catlin, wrote of Mitch:
"Mitch Williams has a message for us all. Can this man's story and all his insight possibly transform the world itself and our perception of it? I assure you, I would not be writing this if I were not convinced the answer is 'yes'. Mitch would claim that you and I are magicians also; that we are here to participate in his fairly unconventional view of magic as bringing illusion to reality. As we get to know Mitch, as we come to understand his magical perspective of transformation, we inevitably see ourselves and our world that much more clearly. And as we do this, we do, in fact, bring illusion to reality. Magic."
--George Catlin, Ph.D., author of The Way to Happiness.

A true modern Reinnassance man, Mitch Williams is an accomplished artist, musician, poet, author, athlete, gardener, gourmet cook, woodworker, and a martial artist with a fourth degree black belt in Judo. Mitch currently lives in Canton, Illinois with his wife Kathi, who inspires him to be a bit more focussed.

It was the title of this book,combined with its cover that piqued my interest. Initially I couldn't equate the idea of 'Magic'(the form of entertainment) with popular psychology and personal transformation. So I am happy to say that my preconceptions were utterly shattered,and this is an absolute gem of a book.

Williams does a marvelous job of introducing complex issues and scientific concepts in a thought provoking and accessible way. His references are broad and appropriate [also a good 'introduction' to Einstein]. A key truth here is how we do not perceive things as they are, but rather as 'we' are and this subjective relativism is central to the idea that openness and acceptance of our own human 'fallibility' should be at the core of a holistic altruism that could effectively be used to not only make our own lives richer and more fulfilling but ultimately benefit the human condition.
Deserves to be a bestseller!

I've been a student of the Ageless Wisdom teachings for about 40 years through such writers as Blavatsky, Bailey and, more recently, Benjamin Creme. It's definitely a life-changing experience. What I especially like about Mitch Williams' book is the translation of many profound topics to everyday life situations. That's what helps you really put things into practice. Then, coming at the whole thing from the perspective of a magician adds an interesting twist. I really liked it!

Mitch Williams' book, A Call to Magic, was the very first book I read on Kindle, so I'll remember it forever for this reason, but I'll also remember it because I found it to be so insightful and psychological. As a student of A Course In Miracles, I found a common thread between Mitch's book and the Course, which is this: the more we are aware of our perceptions, the greater chance we have of changing our perceptions on a moment-to-moment basis so that we can choose happiness at any given moment.

I quickly discovered after reading a few chapters of Mitch's book, it is not about card tricks or pulling rabbits out of hats. Instead, it's a very deeply spiritual book without being the least bit religious, pretentious or preachy.

To my own delight, I found the book to be transformative. As I read each chapter I began to recognize that all that is happening to me is happening so that I can rise to the occasion to meet the challenges of my life head on, knowing that a life power sustains me every time I accept my various challenges with faith and trust.

I particularly enjoyed the fact that Mitch ended the book with a personal call to action. Mitch calls us to live in the present and choose our own happiness.

The best I can hope for by reading Mitch's insightful book is to remember its principles, because after all, in the end, we are all called to be magicians in our own lives.

I enjoyed this book but I have to admit my head was spinning at the end. It covers a lot of ground, Mitch is an interesting guy who has achieved a lot in his life. I have the feeling that he would be exhausting to spend a lot of time with - but in a good way.
