Author of the incredibly popular, Magic's Most Amazing Stories, Ivan Amodei says, "This book is based on 100 plus true stories and is a roller coaster ride through our crazy profession and everything that could possibly happen to us." Born in Comiso, Sicily, Italy, he moved with his parents to New York City at age two. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York and then moved to California in his mid-teens. His interest in this fantastic art started at the young age of five. After receiving his BA Degree in Marketing/Advertising and BA in English, he decided to pursue his passion for performing full-time. His passion and dedication to perfection in this art has always been the fuel for his highly successful career. A multi-award winning magician and entertainer he has received Top Honors at Pacific Coast Association of Magicians, Top Honors at The International Brotherhood of Magicians, Top Honors at the Society of American Magicians, People's Choice Awards, Outstanding Showmanship Awards, and Originality Awards. He is considered one of the best in his field. A frequent performer at The World Famous Magic Castle, as well as, other prominent comedy and magic clubs across the country. Entertainer to the stars with performances for Steven Spielberg, Larry David, Sylvester Stallone, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Zack Braff, Mike Myers, Nick Cage and Jim Carrey just to name a few. He has even entertained Saudi Royalty. A regular performer for large companies such as Apple, Disney, IBM, Yahoo, Google, AT&T, Amgen, Cisco Systems, etc. He is also frequently sought after for advice by top professionals and peers. He's a frequent lecturer and speaker on this subject, often teaching others his approach, philosophy and ideas for presentation of magic. But to this day, he still boasts that his best trick is producing his boy/girl twins out of thin air. Well, with a little help from his wife. When he's not doing magic and performing, he's doing magic and performing and occasionally some gardening. --
