MagicTalkTM Reviews by Bryan Dean - "Holy Toledo! This is an amazing book. For $20.00 you will learn more in 176 pages than in 15 years of messing around and making mistakes in the business. Elliott Smith & Ian Quick have this book in a very easy to understand format that, if you are thinking of entering magic as a profession (or semi-profession), you'll have the tools you need."

Ottawa Business Journal
"Their new book, Highway to Success - The Entertainer's Roadmap to Business, relies on Smith's 35 years as a professional magician and draws on Quick's experiences getting going in the industry after abandoning a law career.

But perhaps the real magic of the book is that it applies to anyone with a dream who just needs a little business savvy to get off the ground."
