Real Secrets TOO, is Adam Milgate’s second book. His first book primarily focused on marketing and promotion and is still available today. Real Secrets TOO, provides what magician’s want most—awe inspiring powerful routines and effects.

Make no mistake Adam delivers. Whether you’re a hobbyist or performer, the key to powerful magic is routines. It is the creative process that makes a lasting impression.

The ole’ saying it’s not “what” you do, but “how” you do it—is profound. Adam is the rare talent that has mastered the essential ingredients necessary to prove this point. But his talents exceed beyond, with his ability to teach the tricks, techniques and routines he has learned through his lifetime of performing.

Every day we get phone calls from customers and the two most popular questions are: Do you have any good effects, you can recommend and/or can you help me to create powerful routines?

I admire their question because it shows they understand the true essence of performing. The gimmicks or effects while essential in the overall picture are not as important in the aggregate. Adam understands this all too well.

This book is a must read, regardless of your skillset, in the art of magic. I’m excited to be able to reference this book when we get these questions.

Save yourself hundreds of dollars and time with this investment— buy this book! A collection of professionally scripted tricks and routines straight
from the repertoire of a professional magician with more than 45-years experience.

This book is literally brimming with great magic and mentalism as well as advice and tips from a true worker in the art of magic and entertainment. You will learn: 16 full routine, scripted killer effects for stage, platform and close up—some of which are original, some are routines for equipment you probably already own.

Also included are five professional routines of close-up miracles, including an entire act based on Jon Allen’s Destination Box.

Learn new contemporary presentations for the Die Box, Cards Across, The Egg Bag, Six Card Repeat, Chinese Sticks and many more.

Plus you will learn how one professional approaches the Emergency Act— two full 45-minute shows—a strolling close-up act that you can hand-carry easily on airlines all over the world. This is an entire close-up act (not just card tricks) that fits into one pocket for those ‘impromptu moments, worth the price alone!

REVIEW from Paul RomhanyEditor of Vanish Magic Magazine.  – www.vanishmagic.com

MY THOUGHTS:

This is one HUGE book filled with so many routines from close-up, stage, and some thoughts on the theory of Magic. One of my favorite chapters is the Bonus chapter where Adam shares his emergency act. I wrote about this is my own book and shared my own emergency act. It’s always fascinating to know what others do in a situation where their main act is lost or delayed and what material they choose to perform.  Adam shares the routines he does for his close-up act and his Stand-up Act. The material in the stage act can easily be carried in hand luggage and you will never lose it. It’s a solid 45 minute show which combines magic and mentalism.

One of the things that really strikes me about Adams work is the thinking that goes behind some of the more classic routines. His take on The Jumbo “Sex” Card Repeat had me laughing out loud. You have to understand that Adam is Australian and I am a New Zealander. There is a fun rivalry between the two countries and Adam takes a fun poke at our accent with this routine. it’s a very funny routine that would I can see playing really well in Australia, but more importantly it shows you how to give a fresh spin on a classic of magic. He also shows how to make up the gimmick cards necessary and I really like the way he’s made the cards. His version of Three Cards across is one of the easiest I’ve seen and he’s very good at telling a story that parallels the action of the trick. Another great example of this is his routine for the Chinese Sticks. This routine has a more motivational spin on it, and he shares his complete patter. It would be great for somebody who does after dinner speaking or some kind of magic/motivational presentation.

Have you ever thought about doing The Die Box for adults?? I actually saw a magician do it at The Magic Castle once and it went over incredibly well. Adam shares his routine which is about his grandfather and gambling. It’s a great version and does away with the kids sucker routine.  The half-dyed hank routine where the hanky changes in the child’s hand is a real surprise and again, a novel spin on this classic routine. I’ve never seen anybody do this before and can’t wait to try it.

Is it possible to modernize the egg bag?? Well, Adam has done just that! I agree with Adam when he says the egg bag makes no sense. It has no context and who puts eggs in a bags these days? This chapter not only teaches you a really great routine BUT also gives an insight in to how to be creative. This is the most important take from this chapter.  He shares a wonderful story of how this routine developed and I could imagine in my mind some of the things he was doing and saying when he was working on it. This is a hilarious routine and one I’d LOVE to see him perform.

The book contains so many routines and ideas it’s hard to name them all. Most routines have photographs and/or illustrations showing how to make a prop.  There is a real mix of material and some great routines and presentations for mentalists as well. There is a really lovely routine for Correct Key which shows what happens when the ‘stars’ align. The focus of this routine is taken off the keys and padlock and firmly placed on a couple that is involved in the trick.  Adams version uses the premise of a marriage which could be very funny.

This book is a real gem and it contains some real golden A-plus material.

The Appendix of the book offers some extra material you will need throughout the book. In Chapter 2 there is a section on act creation and he has a tick list that really is worth considering.

This hard cover book has over 260 pages and I highly recommend it for all levels of performers as there is something for everybody.

For those of you not familiar with Adam’s previous book – Real Secrets – that focuses on how to make money as a magician – see bottom of this page.
