Little seems to be known about Tyler's personal life, and he doesn't have much of an online presence, rarely posting on forums, and only one Youtube video to his name. This lack of online activity is balanced by his copious in-person appearances, lecturing extensively across Canada, the United States, and Europe on various tours and convention appearances.

Quotes

  • “Reinventing The Real is the best and most exciting book on close-up magic I've read in a long time. In it Tyler Wilson shows himself wonderfully inventive, a serious student of his craft and very funny. The only fault this book has is that I'm not publishing it.” Stephen Minch
  • “There are very few magic books that make me laugh on purpose. This one did. I have not met Mr. Wilson, but it is clear that he is impressively well read, and threateningly clever. Had I not read it first, this material would have fooled me. Thus, I’d probably find it difficult to like him.” Max Maven
  • “Tyler Wilson has a wonderful, creative mind. His work with cards is top notch.” Joshua Jay
  • “When I read Dingle's Deceptions I thought, 'My God.' When I read The Magic of Paul Harris, I thought, 'Thank God.' When I read Dominatricks I thought, 'Finally: the next leap forward.' I've waited a long time. I'm very happy that I didn't die before this came along.” Steve Mayhew
  • “Part magical innovator, part North American sasquatch, Tyler Wilson is primed and ready to hold the magic world upside down by its ankles and shake it into submission. Only then will he return to the forest.” David Acer
