As a child, Tahir Shah learned the secrets of illusion from an Indian magician. This is the story of his apprenticeship to one of India's master conjurors and his initiation into the brotherhood of godmen.

One of the best books I;ve ever read. It shows how human weaknesses are common no matter what your culture. Full of danger, lots of misadventures. How this can be used for profit or loss.
