Dynamo: "When I found magic, I was different, but I was interesting." - Genii Online

This interview with Dynamo from chat show This Morning covers a lot of territory, perhaps most importantly how magic can help young people feel more confident in social situations. Dynamo describes how learning magic turned him from a "weirdo" who was bullied every day to someone who was "different, but interesting." 

Dynamo was on the show to promote his book Dynamo: The Book of Secrets, an instructional tome he hopes will encourage young people to explore magic the same way he did when he was at school. A student visiting the set for work experience managed to learn one of the tricks from the book in just a half an hour despite not having any magical background, so it would seem The Book of Secrets is well suited for beginners.
