Praise for Out of My Hat

“Full of solid, practical thinking.  A serious addition to my library.”

“David Garrard’s “Out of My Hat” is a great collection of material, from close-up to illusions—it’s all practical, it’s all commercial, and it’s filled with exactly the sort of ideas that make you excited about performing magic. David also includes stories and insights that make you excited about being involved in magic.”
— Jim Steinmeyer

“David Garrard has taken simple techniques and by adding interesting premises and presentation turned them into real world performance pieces that can quickly and easily be added to almost any performance.”
Brent Braun, creator of Torched and Restored and Position Impossible

“Not only is this one of best books we have sold in our 40 years, it is also probably the greatest value relative to cost.  If you are serious about the art, you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not read and absorb Out of My Hat!  Highly respected by his peers, it is rare for someone to share their best professional routines which run the gamut from close-up, parlor and stage.  All seasoned with the incredible creative genius of David Garrard!”
— Joe Stevens, Stevens Magic

“This is an exceptional book with classic routines that I will refer to again and again!”
— Jim Kleefeld, MUM Magazine

“All A material!”
— Stephen Bargatze
