Thank you Larry for doing so much [in this book] to help raise the intellectual level of our beloved Art of Magic!

Rob Zabrecky
Inspirations is a beguiling and thoughtful collection of essays and routines from one of magic’s progressive practitioners.


Lance Burton
In reading Inspirations the new book by Dr. Larry Hass I can’t count the number of times I said to myself “Larry is crazy for giving away this routine!” Really who would give away such strong well thought out killer material for the price of a book?
I’ll tell you who! Someone who cares deeply about the Art of Magic! Someone who wants to elevate the level of Magic. Someone who loves Magic and Magicians that’s who. The tricks in this book are great but the thinking behind them and the philosophy behind the thinking are even more impressive.
I congratulate my friend Dr. Larry! With the publication of Inspirations he has made a significant and long-lasting contribution to our art. This is required reading for the serious student amateur and professional.

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a full-time pro or at least a really good magician? And getting that mastery as quickly as you could? Then I suggest you open the pages to Larry Hass’s new book Inspirations. Along with his own worker effects it offers magicians a complete list of things to consider as they strive to create better magic and better magic shows and it does so with a depth that I’ve never really encountered before. The book is clear thoughtful and persuasive and I couldn’t put it down.
