Eugene Burger was a legendary magic teacher, and many of today’s greats benefited from his insight. The soft-spoken Chicagoan did an interview back in November 2011 with a French journalist. Burger touches on many topics, including his own journey to becoming a full-time magician and the importance of magic history.
His different definitions of success might be the most fascinating insight into Burger’s mind. Heads up for you philosophy geeks: Alan Watts figures prominently in that portion of the interview.
