Ricky Jay’s Magical Secrets

A great article on what it is like to care about a craft.

This sentiment is also true of consultants and designers. The number of ‘strategy’ consultants who know close to nothing about the history and craft of strategy – and more to the point, don’t seem to think this is a problem – is consistently mind-blowing.

One of the things that I love about Ricky is his continued amazement at how little magicians seem to care about the art. Intellectually, Ricky seems to understand this, but emotionally he can’t accept it. He gets as upset about this problem today as he did twenty years ago.”
