“What you will soon read has served me well, placing bread in my pocket as well as on the table. Pockets Full of Miracles is filled with many of my own routines as well as my adaptations of effects that I feel are worth performing. My repertoire, like my life, is filled with variety.
Within these covers you will find routines involving cards, money, fire, gags, bar-betchas, mind-reading, comedy and more. In the school of magic, I have no idea at what level, or in what category, you would place yourself. With that in mind, I have tried to create a book for every type of magician. With the descriptive text and numerous photos I have tried capture every nuance during each routine. In addition, each term that falls into the category of “magic jargon” has been bold-faced. These bold-faced words are defined in the glossary at the back of the book. Please do not read this book as if it were an instruction manual for simple tricks. Take the time to read between the lines, and I promise that you will find some of the true secrets of magic.
A successful magician is not measured by the quantity of effects he or she learns. The important thing, as in most professions, is the quality of what you know. So be prepared… You’re about to learn how to do some incredible mind-blowing magic! Magically yours, Diamond Jim Tyler”
