Publisher's Summary

Houdini was a man of magic and mystery. He was also a pilot, an author, an actor, and a rabid opponent of the Spiritualist movement. He was impatient of charlatans and imitators and loving to his family. He had an impressive ego. If any of these facts are new to you, then The Life of Houdini: A Biography of Magic and Mystery is the perfect primer on the man who was, by the end of his life, known only as Houdini.

From his Nude Cell Escape (yes, that is exactly like it sounds) to his methodical debunking of mediums, Houdini orchestrated his talent, persona, and career with care, enthusiasm, and determination.

With an easy-to-understand biography, writings from Houdini himself, and quick-fact introductions to each chapter, The Life of Houdini: A Biography of Magic and Mystery will tell you what you want most to know about the King of Handcuffs, also known as Ehrich Weisz, also known as the great Houdini.
