THE BOOK - Finding Your Light Bulb - published by Renassance Publishing

The FINDING YOUR LIGHT BULB COURSE actually started out as a a podcast interview, a local magic club lecture, and then culminated in a big lecture that Steve gave at the KAX - KIDABRA conference in Los Angeles several years ago (for which he received a STANDING OVATION).  As the ideas percolated in his head, they eventually grew into a 187 page paper-back book that is PACKED with ideas, strategies, inspiration, and stories.  Here's the book.

We highly suggest you use BOTH the printed book and the online course to assist you in FINDING YOUR LIGHT BULB.  The BOOK and the ONLINE COURSE are companion pieces that work seamlessly together to help you get the most out of your show business career!  You don't have to get them BOTH, they will each work well on their own, but they work BEST together.
