A book of Pop's origins and lessons learned on his journey. I could not put the book down. It was really interesting on how things were back in the day and what kinds of "acts" there were on the streets. Just a great story of how it was as a street performer and tips and tricks here and there from Pop. Really glad I had the opportunity to read this one.

I thought it would have more "insider" information, but it was lacking in that. I did not pay too much for it, so it wasn't a total bust.

This book has brought me a new perspective of street performers. It gave good life lessons and a great way to learn on how to bring a crowd in and keep the crowd there so you can performe. When I was reading this book my mind didnt go anywhere but in the story. It was very intresting to learn about the tricks that Whit Haydn performed to people. And what got me was all the places that He travled to. And all the money that He was making. Ive read this book to help me with my ethnography and it has givven me a better understanging of what to expect. Because im guessing most street performers go the same rout as Haydn did. But this book is perfect for begining street performes and I hope that whoever reads this book can get a life lesson out of it. I didn't but thats because i dont want to be a street performer or a magician.

It's not a long book but in those pages lies some of the best advice I've been given about performing magic to an audience.

Pop speaks volumes from his years of experience as a professional magician in an easy and fun manner which mirrors his onstage persona.

If you are looking to perform magic or otherwise interest and engage a small crowd herein lies some delightful anecdotes and straight tips on how to shine.
