Hey everybody. A short while back Mark Lewis mentioned in a post that he has an authors page on Amazon. I promptly opened the app, found his mamoir and purchased it. The other day I finally started reading it and all I can say is WOW! What a great read. I could'nt put it down. Mark is hilarious, brilliant wit, and what an amazing story. I'm sure there are many tales left untold but what an incredible journey. Immensely inspiring. I would implore anyone involved in any branch of our beloved art to give it a read. Among the hilarious prose there are many lessons to glean if one has an acute sense of reading between the lines.
Mark - if you read this : thanks for the laughter, the insight.. and the bitter sweet tears. WOW!!!

I just looked it up on Amazon and found that you're not the only one who has given Mark's book a glowing review! For anyone interested, here's the link where you can purchase this directly from Mark...

Thanks for the review!

Ah yes, that is the Kindle version. However, if you wish to obtain the hard backed real book version (which I prefer since I make more money that way) you can get it here:

I have never read the Kindle version since I don't understand things like that. I don't think it has photographs in it and the type fonts vary because of my incompetence.

 Oh, I see now that you can indeed get the hard backed version on Amazon but I make no money if you do that. Some pathetic amount less than $5 if even that. Probably 3 bucks or so. It was just the way the publishing deal was set up and I wouldn't do it again that way. However, if you buy it direct from me and mention you are a member here then I will send my Wit and Wisdom e-book free of charge. I normally sell this on its own for $15 as you will see on my webpage.

I forgot to thank Slowdini for his kind words. He can therefore consider himself thanked. 

Oh, and here is the author's page in question. It details the other books and booklets I have written with various videos and suchlike

https://www.amazon.com/Mark-Lewis/e/B001KI2K4A

There are indeed many positive reviews about the Showman book. I particularly like the one from Richard Webster who has sold TEN MILLION books of his own! However, in addition to the online reviews I have had many, many nice comments in person. I was quite surprised to get an unexpected long distance phone call from Barry Richardson whom I had never spoken to before raving about the book. 

I wish I could really see into the future and had been able to read the book when I was 16 years old. I think I would have looked at my work differently in the decades to come.

I echo that sentiment. 
 As far as I'm concerned, Mark, you are INDISPENSABLE to this Forum.  Over and above the fact that you made me aware of the Forum, you are one of the primary reasons I am a member." I always eagerly look forward to anything you have written.

Thank you for your kind remarks, Aly. Hardly "indispensable" but I do hope to some degree informative.

Oh, I think I had better mention that I am about to leave town for a few days. If anyone wishes to order the book please bear in mind that I will not be available to process orders until Monday or more likely Tuesday of next week. I will be around today but that is about it.

He has posted elsewhere so he is still with us! Many of us come and go. Life gets in the way. Myself, I took a 20 year hiatus from magic when I started my family. I still "disappear" from time-to-time.....
