Sleights of Mind is a terrific read, combining science, neurology, and magic - not an easy trick, but the authors have done a brilliant job of putting a mirror up to ourselves. I loved it. -- Joe Navarro, author of 'What Every Body is Saying'
Magic is the place where our senses and beliefs fail us in magnificent ways. In this exciting book the authors explore what magic and illusions can teach us about our fallible human nature -- Dan Ariely, author of Predictability Irrational
Sleights of Mind has discovered why magic works - by exploring how magicians test the limits of human senses to create magic effects. It's fantastic -- probably the most important magic book I have ever read. I love it. -- Kevin McMahon, Artistic Director, The Edinburgh International Magic Festival

Brilliantly simple and wonderfully engaging * Sunday Times *
