Overview
Throughout his life, the world s most famous escapologist strove to expose the methods and tricks of illusionists and sham spiritualists. Studying entertainers and criminals alike, Houdini investigates the tricks of the mind and sleights of hand that have deceived people throughout history. The magician s writings caused a public sensation; legend has it that his book"The Right Way to Do Wrong" was bought in bulk by burglars in an attempt to guard the tricks of their trade. This collection also includes Houdini s revelations about the methods behind some of his own most famous tricks, and articles he wrote to expose his imitators."
