THE SHOW DOCTOR IS IN! The Show Doctor is the first full-length book of magic from Jeff McBride, one of the great magicians of our time.
This new book includes:
- 11 previously unpublished routines by Jeff, including stage illusions, stand-up routines, manipulation, close-up magic, cards, and mentalism.
- Revised versions of Jeff’s celebrated advice column from MAGIC Magazine (2007-2010).
- Over 45,000 new, additional words beyond the original columns, including many interviews and additional writings.
Please note: Purchasers of the printed book will have full access to all the embedded materials created for the digital version of The Show Doctor (developed in partnership with MAGIC Magazine). This is over 30 minutes of new video content, plus pop-up materials and essays.
Lance Burton: “If you only read one magic book this year, make it The Show Doctor.”
Mac King: “I truly believe that Jeff McBride is the best guide to improving your magic show in the world today.”
Kevin James: “Jeff’s book is pure gold. If you are looking for inspiration on how to be more creative and a better performer, look no further.”
Ken Weber (author of Maximum Entertainment): “Some magicians have asked me if I was going to write a sequel to my one and only book. In many ways I truly feel that sequel is what you are holding in your hands right now.”
Eugene Burger: “In the twenty years I have worked closely with Jeff McBride, I have seen him inspire and transform the performances of countless magicians. He is a master teacher of magic.”
Max Maven: “A couple of thousand years ago, the Roman philosopher Seneca said, ‘People pay the doctor for his trouble; for his kindness they still remain in his debt.’ Which is why we all owe a debt to the Show Doctor. You can start to repay that by buying this book. It will make your magic more healthy.”
