Puzzles and magic might not seem like the most logical companions, but Kwong sees a clear parallel between the two. As human beings, he argues, we are driven by the urge to solve problems and “create order out of chaos.” In May 2017, HarperCollins will release Spellbound: Master the Seven Principles of Illusion to Gain Influence, Captivate Audiences, and Unlock the Secrets of Success, his first book: a guide to bridging the gap between perception and reality to increase our powers of persuasion and influence. A veteran “cruciverbalist” (crossword puzzle constructor), Kwong routinely creates puzzles for The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and other national publications.
