The book for anyone who wants to learn entertaining, honest pickpocketing.

The late David Alexander performed around the world as a pickpocket, magician, and mentalist. A protégé of the famous Spanish magician José Frakson, David was a popular and successful entertainer in the Los Angeles area because of his personality, skill and knowledge.

There he has performed for everyone from the stars of the golden age of film like Van Johnson and Norma Shearer to music greats like Bob Dylan and the Beatles. His friends were a who's who of art, science, and the magic world.

In the 1970s, David wrote extensive notes on the Stage Pickpocket Act. In these chapters he shared his lifelong insights and experiences in the world of street pickpockets and also detailed his background as a private investigator who had access and inside knowledge of the world of street pickpockets.

This hard-cover book contains David's earlier writings on the subject, revised and re-illustrated by his wife, Cassidy Alexander. It contains all the principles on which David built the act that took him around the world.
