After 40 years Nick Lewin has become one of the highest paid and highly regarded performers in this lucrative market. This award-winning performer is sharing his experience and it has now been put down on paper. It can save other performers a gigantic learning curve.
From A-Z, Lewin covers the topics that will get you booked in the cruising industry. From how to get your bookings, getting to your gig, what to do when you get there and how to get re-booked. He holds nothing back and shares numerous tips and techniques that can put you at the front of the booking line.
At a time when most sources of work are drying up, or closing down, Nick shows you how to cash in and become a player in one of the few remaining expanding markets for the performing magician. Everything you need to know is here, all you need to do is supply the act. He gives amazingly specialized and savvy advice about that too.
There is great information about how to make your act suitable and desirable for the cruise market. Nick even includes one of his pet routines, which he performs on every cruise. Although it is a clichÃ©, his "Cruise Card Transpo" really is worth the price of the book, as you will realize the moment you perform it. His tips on other effects to perform, and not perform, will also be invaluable as you master this highly paid and enjoyable field of employment.
"I'm very grateful for all the advice in your book. I would never be as prepared as I am if it wasn't for you. Your thoughts were super helpful and you made my first time on board seem like I was a super pro."
- Jon Armstrong
"This is truly the greatest book available for anyone interested in performing magic on a ship. If such a book were available 35 years ago it would have made my life so much easier. Lewin gives you the straight talk and real work."
- Jon Stetson
"I can truthfully say that I've never read any book that so thoroughly covers every aspect of any field of entertainment as does this wonderful book!"

"Knowledge that can come only from vast professional experience. All of it will be very helpful to anyone contemplating a career as a cruise ship performer. Much of Lewin's advice can be carried over to other subsets of magical performance. Many more of his suggestions make this book worth the price even if readers have no desire to pursue cruise work."
