The Paradigm Shift Two Volume Ebook Set features three groundbreaking essays that will change the way you think about your magic, eleven beautiful sleights that will deceive both laymen and magicians, and thirty-four commercial, devious routines you will enjoy performing. Included are ideas and routines from Ariel Frailich, John Carney, Simon Aronson, Bob Farmer, Mick Ayres, Roy Walton, Harry Riser, Norman Beck, Michael Weber, Jason England, Aaron Fisher, Joshua Jay, and Ton Onosaka.. 

I have tried to organize the material in both volumes of The Paradigm Shift thematically. Generally speaking, Volume One contains sleights and routines that are less technically demanding, although I would classify the skill level of both books as low intermediate to high intermediate.

← See images of the table of contents for Volume One and Volume two.

A few of the routines in Volume Two require perfect faro shuffles and various forms of the pass.

As with our previous ebooks, we have used text, photos, and video to provide an optimal learning experience. 

When you purchase The Paradigm Shift Volumes One and Two, you will receive:

- Two PDF files (perfect for printing out and for reading on your desktop or laptop)
- Two EPUB files (perfect for reading on your iPad or Android tablet).
A ReadMe file (also included with your purchase) is importantPlease read it before you open your ebook.

The Paradigm Shift Two Volume Ebook Set

FYI... I have not read this all the way thru... yet, actually just purchased, but I have everything that Michael has published to date (book, dvd, whatever) and anticipate the same excellence as his previous material, I mean seriously... just read the table of contents! This has been on my wish list for a long time and am so happy be able to study the material! Curt

Excellent Customer Service

Great, I had download issues which may have been my fault, but Lisa quickly responded to my email and satisfactorily sorted me in real-time. Excellent service. Still working on the Books.


Glad to have been of help, Colin. - Michael

In the postface of The

In the postface of The Paradigm Shift Volume 1 Michael writes, "Unfortunately, explaining the important details often requires a lot of words . . . To leave out the details would make the book easier to read, but it would do you a disservice. My suggestion is this: don’t rush through it. Take your time, make notes, and most important, think about what you read." If this book is for you this quote is all the review needed. If this quote puts you off, stop, read it again, only this time read it as I translate it for you as follows, "If you genuinely want to be a better magician, this is the book for you." I have only read through Volume 1 completely once and now I am taking my time, making notes, slowly, thinking. This book is unlike any other I own and it is difficult to explain this difference. If you take my point above however, the answer as to whether you should buy these books or not is clear.

Amazing eBooks, even better service

Yes, the books are wonderful, but it was the customer service that really made it great. 15 minutes after I let them know I had a hiccough with the download process, Lisa got back to me and everything went perfectly from there. Did I mention the books are jammed full of killer stuff? Thanks!
