1. Eric Mead's book Tangled Web (especially his essays)
2. The Jon Stetson interview, Magic January 2007. Use this quote to start your year and restart the way you approach your magic. If you don't want to listen to me. Listen to him.
"Magicians who think the show is all about them are wrong.
It's not about you, it's about the people who come to see you--your audience."
Have a safe and happy new year.
(And for you non-magicians, I hope to have some stuff for you also.)
