Cosenti is Australia's premier illusionist - a magician to his fingertips, a man who constantly challenges our tions of what is possible. This is his thrilling and inspiring story. Cosenti is Australia's premier illusionist and escapologist - a magician to his fingertips, a man who constantly challenges our tions of what is possible. The LA Times has said of him that 'Cosenti mirrors the legendary Harry Houdini' - and like Houdini, he is a true pioneer and trail blazer. Cosenti was the first Australian magician to have his own prime-time TV shows and these TV spectaculars have w been broadcast in over 40 countries. Recognised by his peers as the 'International Magician of the Year', he has become one of Australia's most popular live performers and continues to stage his award winning live show to full houses across the globe. But Cosenti's greatest trick of all? Well, that's something completely different. It was learning how to read. He was a twelve-year-old boy with learning difficulties, teased and isolated, who struggled with reading and schoolwork. But one day, in a library, he found an illustrated book about magic - and that unlocked something in him. That magic book t only inspired him to learn to read, it propelled him on an extraordinary journey - from a shy boy with low self-esteem to the international star that he is today. This is an uplifting and wholly compelling story for anyone who ever dreamed of achieving the impossible. 'Cosenti's story will provide inspiration for both adults and teenagers, in fact,for anyone who wishes to succeed, to persevere against the odds, and to overcome periods of self-doubt. This is t just a celebrity memoir and it is more than a book about magic. It is a book about self-belief.' Bookseller + Publisher
