How do magic tricks fool us? Where does our thinking go astray? If we can be fooled by the illusions of a stage magician, how do we know we aren't being fooled by other illusions as well? Among the core science concepts explored in this eye-opening program--which combines baffling magic with audience brainstorming--are those related to developing skepticism, forming hypothesis, questioning appearances, testing explanations, and distinguishing between a scientific and non-scientific world view. Allan Zola Kronzek is a writer, magician, and longtime teaching artist. He is the author of the NY Times bestseller The Sorcerer's Companion-A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter, and the highly-acclaimed A Book of Magic for Young Magicians - The Secrets of Alkazar.
