Books Info:

Free Magic Secrets Revealed free pdf Like all great adventures, this one starts with someone trying to get a girl. After all, King Meneleaus didn't go to Troy for the baklava.
Playwright, journalist, comedian and bestselling author Mark Leiren-Young recalls his teenage escapades in his hilarious new memoir and coming of age story, "Free Magic Secrets Revealed." A geeky bully-magnet, Mark was seventeen and wanted to be a playwright, but even more than that, he wanted to impress Sarah, who he'd pined for since elementary school. It's 1979 and, thanks to Doug Henning, magic is hip so Mark hooks up with Randy, a stoner magician, and Kyle, an ambitious young actor, to chase fame--and the women of their dreams.
The three teenagers team up to put on a small-time magic show, attracting the attention of a big-time promoter who convinces them they have a shot at a world tour . . . except they need bigger illusions, an original soundtrack and a better supporting cast.
Seeing a chance at having all their dreams come true, they sacrifice their grades, their money and eventually their dream girls to create a show they hope will be like "Star Wars" on stage. But they're not that good. Mark's script makes no sense because it's part one of a trilogy. Randy promises to build magic tricks he can't actually make. And Kyle will do anything for the show--except wear the helmet that's critical to the plot and half the illusions. And is it worth getting your head cut off to get a date?
The show goes on and the guys embrace their fate--determined to show the world what they can do.
