I got the clicker last week. My husband and son were away, so I controlled the controller for one brief shining moment in time. I clicked to the kind of show I like - nonfic docs. Nova Science Now.
My reward was a segment on the show about magic: the science of magic, and the ways magicians use our faulty powers of perception to get their snazzy effects.
I was interested, of course, because the info covered in this show mirrored - or should I say smoke-and-mirrored - the material in my own book, Magic Up Your Sleeve. With one exception: my book, ahem, has a lot, lot, lot more info in it. That's the beauty of print over video.
So check out the Nova show - I've put the link below. Then get yourself a copy of Magic Up Your Sleeve and learn how your brain performs mental magic every single second of the day. You'll also learn a few easy-as-pie tricks that any klutz (psst! that means me!) can do. If you have half a mind to try, that is. ;)
