Sleights of Mind: What the Neuroscience of Magic Reveals About Our Everyday Deceptions by Stephen L. Macknik & Susana Martinez-Conde

Share This Post

Interesting book which contains science information and reveals how some magic tricks are performed.  An example would be details about how eyes detect circular rapid movements.  Also people unintentionally follow other people’s eye gaze.  Therefore the magician can look somewhere move a hand in large circles, whilst moving other hand in a straight line, often with black clothes on a black background and you may not see it.  Also raises the possibility that those with autism don’t follow the magicians eye gaze compared with people without autism, therefore are at times harder to trick with magic.
