In the Media:

“In a world which seems constantly stripped of its magic through cynicism and fear, "The Magician’s Elephant" reminds that things are only impossible until they’re possible. Or, put another way, it prompts us to consider the power of two words: What if.” Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness
