Stevens Magic Emporium is honored to work with internationally respected author and activist – Dr. Todd Landman
Dr. Todd Landman is an Associate Member of the Magic Circle (with Silver Star), Founder of Psycrets: The British Society of Mystery Entertainers and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. These are just his accolades in the art of magic. Outside it, he is equally respected as a leader in the field of Political Science, and an advocate of Human Rights. Dr Landman consults on many of these issues – Stevens Magic Emporium is proud he is sharing his knowledge with our esteemed clientele.
This is a book test with a real difference. The performer is able to provide a scintillating journey through the world of philosophy, reveal an entire page of information that has been chosen randomly by a participant in the audience, and unveil an additional mystery that naturally links into another routine typically used by mystery entertainers.
This new release takes the original Cogito Ergo Sum to a new level, with beautiful line drawings of each philosopher in the book The World’s Greatest Philosophers, a new pocket size paperback that fits in a jacket pocket for walk around and business presentations, and a new kicker finish that is a perfect link for further explorations in non-duality.
The book comes ready to perform with printed instructions on the background concepts and ideas for enhancing the performance. Line drawings (SEE IMAGE BELOW) are from Phill Smith of Sushi Design – CLICK HERE.
I absolutely “loved” this booktest – because it uses imagery instead of words and the methodolgy is brilliant! – Joe Stevens
What can I say about Dr. Todd Landman – simple – he’s at the top of the food chain… You’re in company with him Mark. – Bill Montana
I was so excited when Dr. Todd confirmed he would provide a contribution for Scryer’s Band Of Readers for many reasons, first for the contribution of course, but secondly I knew — if he wasn’t in the book – – something big would be missing from it. This man has traversed the globe many times over – anyone that has that opportunity gains a tremendous amount of knowledge and insight. The fact that he shares it – is of immense value to anyone smart enough to absorb it. – Neal Scryer
‘Landman is an example of how the performance of “magic” has been transformed in the last decade…far removed from circus-style trickery of sawing women in half.’
Laura Marsh, Prospect Magazine, May 2012, p. 79.
‘To call him a conjuror is to liken President Obama to a parish Councillor ……’ ‘ A marriage of top end conjuring and stock-room science with psychology and philosophy as bridesmaids and comedy as its pageboy.’
Martin Newell, East Anglia Daily Times
‘…the future of magic…’
Neil Darcy-Jones, Essex County Standard
‘Professor Landman is a unique magician who held our audience in the palm of his hand as he read minds and introduced Eastern esoteric arts none of us could fathom. The high point of our major fund raising event, his set immediately became legendary. Not so much ‘sleight of hand’ as ‘sleight of mind’. A deeply mystifying and cerebral experience. Todd redefines the meaning of magic.’
Charles Malcolm-Brown, The Mountain Trust
‘Todd is unlike any other performer on this planet. He is a sophisticated deceiver and at the same time a charming and delightful entertainer.’
Barrie Richardson, Celebrated mentalist and author of Theatre of the Mind
‘Smart’ ‘Crafted’ ‘Gentle’ ‘…baffled, educated and entertained, all at the same time…’
