"A remarkable achievement. To uncover as many previously unknown details of the masster mystifier's life would be enough to merit applause. To examine Houdini and his world with such originality and depth deserves a standing ovation." Teller of Penn and Teller,New York Times Book Review "Destined to be the definitive Houdini biography." Boston Globe "Fascinating....The captivating story Mr. Silverman tells of Houdini's career does justice to the man and his art." Wall Street Journal Instead of retelling the standard Houdini anecdotes, Mr. Silverman examines the evidence with a fresh eye and a sleuthlike determination not to be snowed by Houdini's notorious "improvements" of the facts. Best of all, he is able to place Houdini in the context of his own times and ours.... To uncover so many previously unknown details of the master mystifier's life would be enough to merit applause. To examine Houdini and his world with such originality and depth deserves a standing ovation. The New York Times Book Review
