Magic is a spiritual path which is not very well understood in our society. This is because the theory and practice of magic have never before been explained clearly and convincingly, in a way that makes sense to intelligent and thoughtful people. Written in a sassy, irreverent style, What is Magic? answers the questions which all serious spiritual seekers, no matter what their spiritual path, ask at one time or another, but can never find satisfactorily answered:
1)What is the difference between faith and fooling yourself?
2)What is the relationship between altered states and normal, everyday life?
3)If you lose your desires, as many spiritual paths advocate, what zest or spice does life have left?
4)If the world is an illusion or dream, as it’s said to be, then why does it seem so real?
5)Where does the world of magic – the shaman’s world – take off from the world of everyday life? What and where is the interface?
6)Why is it so difficult to achieve real, permanent spiritual growth?

“Bob Makransky, I feel, has written a great treatise on magic. I urge you to enjoy it as much as I have.” from the foreword by Michael Peter Langevin, publisher of Magical Blend Magazine

“What Is Magic breaks down the study of Magic into familiar elements such as spirits, demons, spells and spell casting. It also explores white and black magic, stalking, and bewitching. Makransky explains how all of these things exist in our everyday world whether we believe in them or not. Almost everything we identify as magical ‘spookiness’ occurs to us on a day to day basis. We are bewitched by people and things. We are demonized by those who treat us badly. We just don’t recognize that things we see, say and do might actually be influenced by magical thinking.

"There is a certain no-nonsensical feel to his presentation that is both refreshing and a bit disconcerting. Makransky’s writing style is very different from other New Age authors, and that alone should appeal to readers looking for a bit more substance in their study of magic” – J Byrne, Psychic Magic magazine
