He is the author of four critically acclaimed best-selling books in English: The Five Points of Magic, The Magic Way, Sonata and Mnemonica. Along with Arturo de Ascanio, Tamariz has spearheaded a school of thought in close-up magic that has produced FISM award-winning champions and deeply influenced the craft of magic worldwide.
