 Product Description

In 2008 Dr. Carmel - himself a deaf magician - wrote Silent Magic which contained the biographies of fifty-nine deaf magicians in the United States. This new book is based on interviews and research Dr. Carmel conducted over the past five decades regarding lives of these special people from many different countries. Dozens of inspirational and heart-warming stories document how they persisted to overcome challenges in striving for their love of magic.



Deaf magicians do not have it easy. In addition to the foibles and problems that every human being faces they have the extra difficulty of living in a soundless world. Not only can't they hear but most choose not to speak on stage. Theirs is a world of no patter of no oral distractions of music they cannot hear. Deaf magicians have succeeded in spite of these challenges. You can read their stories and cheer their successes in this 400-page lively book which also includes many rare illustrations and photographs of those who until now have been invisible to most of the world. [Simon J. Carmel; (2013) 404 pages; soft cover]



Reviews:


...helps spread positive insights into the potentials of deaf people world over. In fact it was very enjoyable literature about deaf people."

— Mary Rita Barrett (father Eugene S. Erpenbach was a deaf magician from Chicago IL)


"This is not a book of magic but rather a collection of beautifully written inspirational biographies of one hundred and twelve deaf magicians both living and deceased from twenty-eight different countries...Overall the book is an excellent read about how a 'perceived condition' can actually become an advantage written by a deaf magician. Highly recommended."

— Paul A. Lelekis
