E-books and the professional magician

David H. Rothman writes “Multimedia e-books can be a godsend for people learning special skills. Check out E-Books and the Professional Magician, a cogent essay by Stephen Gambuti, author of Dirty Little Secrets of Magic and other writings. He is a professional magician who has appeared in New York comedy clubs and given an off-camera performance for Robin Leech of “Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous.” In his essay for TeleRead, Steve in effect makes a powerful case for multimedia e-books for skill-builders of all kinds–ranging from aspiring auto mechanics to future surgeons (and perhaps present practitioners, too). He focuses on his own experiences. But he’s really made a powerful generic argument for skill-oriented e-books with animated graphics.”
