Thanks Gareth! A quick read and I agree pretty much with all of Mr. Ong's points. I'm tempted to state how this relates to other issues but I will refrain.

There are no excuses, (not that there really was before), from this point onward. That’s why this is such an important project.

Gareth, I referred to this download on another forum in a thread about youtube.  Many people that post videos there break all of the rules set forth in Mr. Ong's publication.  

Maybe it will have an impact.

Bumping this thread because it relates to several discussions we've had recently about the importance of crediting and perhaps specifically as it relates to younger or "newer" magicians.

This book is offered free and it is a wonderful gift to the magic community.

Whatever your stance on crediting, this book is a must-read for all magicians, young and old, experienced and not-so-much.

When you see someone that doesn't credit properly or at all, maybe you can politely suggest they take a moment and seek out Mr. Ong's book.  Maybe reading it will have an impact.

I got mine through Vanishing Inc.  I believe if you click on the link in the first post it will take you there.  You have to "sign up" for an account, but they have a lot of free stuff and it worth taking the time to do so.

Me too. And they do indeed have lots of free stuff. One book that has been discussed on various threads here is the massive "Magic In Mind".

I had this wonderful book in my VI downloads folder for about 2 years before I began reading it.

I simply read the title and assumed it was about Mentalism which I wasn't studying at the time. Man was I was kicking myself when I found out it was about the best collection of essays and theory from the best of the best. A must read.
