Book Review: The Magic Touch

A bad habit I have when I get interested in something is buying and reading every and any book about the subject I can get my hands on.
One of the first I found was "The Magic Touch: How to make $100,000 per year as a Massage Therapist".
Meagan Holub seemed inviting when I did some research on her, and found her website: Hundred Thousand Dollar Massage and I felt like I could relate to her a lot.
She does run her own Massage clinic after all, and must be somewhat successful to have written a book based on her experience.




I wasnt expecting the book to be the Ultimate guide to an awesome Career in Massage therapy, but I did find it to be Inspirational, and will be keeping it on hand to re-read during
those times when Im feeling defeated.
The Advice was common sense in the business world, with a twist to make it more relevant to the Massage Therapy field, however most of it (I would hope) is information you would
learn as you go through your schooling.
I was a little disappointed by the quality of the book, mainly from the editing point of view. I think having a few more proof readers would have helped me enjoy the read a bit better.
I found myself getting frustrated about 30 page in by the regularity of the mistakes and how difficult it made reading the book.

After some research I found that the edition I purchased was somewhat a "Rough Draft" of the book and that there were several revisions going into place prior to the next
print, I think it would have been nice to know this in advance so I wasnt so confused during my first read through.

Overall the book was fun to read and made the thought of running your own Massage Business a little less scary for the n00bs like me.
Great as a confidence booster and for some advertising advice, I hope that I will be able to get a look at the next batch to see that the few quirks it had have been cleaned up making
the book a much more pleasant read. I would definitely recommend it as a go to book when inspiration is low.
