Check Out Paul Romhany’s Review from Vanish Magic Magazine BELOW! 

In 2019, Larry Hass released the first of two posthumous books that were to share all of Eugene Burger’s unpublished materials. Carried out at Eugene’s request and in close collaboration, these books reflect Eugene’s fondest wish that his entire working repertoire would be available to magicians after he was gone.

Now, two years later, it is time for EUGENE BURGER: FINAL SECRETS.

Focused entirely on the masterful card magic that made Eugene a close-up star, FINAL SECRETS collects essays, interviews, and complete descriptions of seventeen real-world card routines that Eugene didn’t share in any book-including Influence, Fishing, Order and Chaos, Thought Sender, and his legendary work on The Trick that Cannot Be Explained.

EUGENE BURGER: FINAL SECRETS also includes both the text and audio versions of Eugene’s 1992 masterpiece, Growing in the Art of Magic. Thus, the book provides access to twenty-seven videos and audio recordings of Eugene performing and explaining his wonderful card magic, and sharing his wisdom about reaching toward excellence in the art.

The wait is over: you are about to receive Eugene Burger’s FINAL SECRETS.

Paul Romhany’s Thoughts – From Vanish Magic Magazine:

This book is an incredible tribute and lasting legacy to one of the greatest teachers and magicians of our times. This massive 320 page book contains material that has never been released before. In 2019, Larry Hass released the first of two posthumous books that were to share all of Eugene Burger’s unpublished materials. Carried out at Eugene’s request and in close collaboration, these books reflect Eugene’s fondest wish that his entire working repertoire would be available to magicians after he was gone.

Now, two years later, it is time for EUGENE BURGER: FINAL SECRETS. Focused entirely on the masterful card magic that made Eugene a close-up star, FINAL SECRETS collects essays, interviews, and complete descriptions of seventeen real-world card routines that Eugene didn’t share in any book-including Influence, Fishing, Order and Chaos, Thought Sender, and his legendary work on The Trick that Cannot Be Explained. This book has been in the making for 10 years and it was Eugene’s wish that after his passing that his work that has not been in print before would be published for magicians in the future to learn from. What makes this book so unique is that there are 27 video and audio recordings and you can see Eugene perform the routines in this book. The footage is excellent and they recorded it with this book in mind.

For me the audio on ‘Growing in the Art of Magic, Talks 1-10’ are GOLD! This is what everybody who performs magic should listen you really want to. The deck can easily be used for other tricks and because they have included two decks you can do any type of ‘do as I do trick.’ The system used isn’t new but Spidey has put a lot of thought in to this and it will fool anybody who thinks they may know how it works. One note is you will have to set the deck up, and if you hand it out then you’ll need to reset prior to doing it again. If you don’t have this then I highly recommend you get it because it will quickly become one of your favorite items to carry with you. Eugene offers his thoughts on magic and how to enhance your performance. He was truly a master teacher and had a deep understanding of what makes a performance memorable.

Even though this was written by Larry you can feel Eugene’s presence on every page of this book. The material itself is all card magic, but it’s magic that was very close to Eugene and the A material he wanted to leave for others after his passing. As Eugene himself said in the interview part of the book, “this material will fool magicians!” The first part of the book covers THE CLASSICS. These are tricks that are designed to have
a lasting impression on your audience and include “Influence”, “Thought Sender”, and “Destiny has a Name.” Eugene carried all three with him when he traveled. If you perform magic in the real world these are three items
you will want to learn and do yourself. All the effects have clear and precise handling’s as well as work on scripting.

Part Three of this book is on Close-up Card Magic and Performing Philosophy. This is the real work on Eugene’s approach to close-up magic and is a book all by itself. This section teaches you his core sleights and a large
number of Eugene’s everyday card routines. What comes across for me is this section really reveals the secrets as to the magic Eugene used to make his living from. Another favorite chapter in here is how to select magic to
perform. This is a very important part of any act and something not discussed. This is a great service to us all.

Part Four of the book is titled, “Conversations.” Eugene was informed by a long philosophical tradition, both East and West, that truths appear through dialogue. There are also some great photos in here of Eugene as well as an wonderful interview by Max Maven. This is a chapter you will want to take some time out and read word for word. This book is something every performer should not just own but they should READ. It is filled with A material you will perform but also take so much more from this book such as philosophy, how to get work, what makes a trick strong, etc. One of my favorite books to be released in 2021
