Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finally, detailed answers to all (well, almost all) of life's most puzzling complexities.

A magician sketches authentic blueprints to decipher and decode life's unexplainable hexes, hoaxes, and human curiosities.

If your ancestors invented the Ferris Wheel, chances are you too would be intrigued with life's mysterious inner-workings. Such is the case for author, inventor, and magician Paul Ferris Osborne. Osborne demystifies everything from driving in America, to how to find the perfect burger, to how to cheat at golf, or win at NASCAR by following his intricately drawn blueprint diagrams.

Consider a behind-the-facades look at a number of life's more elusive offerings, such as:

  • Where to find Jimmy Buffet's Lost Shaker of Salt.
  • The secrets behind ventriloquism, sawing a woman in half, the Magic 8 Ball, the Ouija Board, and more!

About the Author

Paul Ferris Osborne began his career as a magician performing with Larry Harmon as Bozo's ringmaster. His designs for magical illusions have been utilized on stage, television, and by professional magicians such as David Copperfield and Harry Blackstone. He lives in Texas.
