Timberdoodle's review Learn more
With poverty in his family, Erich Weiss struck out on his own at 12 years old. Learn how his younger brother was instrumental in beginning Erich's life of illusions, how he came to be known as Houdini, what many of the amazing feats he performed are, and much more. Regardless of your family's convictions about “magic”, the life of Houdini, as fraught with Godlessness as it was, is still part of the history of America. Filled with the different tricks he performed from his first acting flop to the incredible and sometimes near-death performances that brought Houdini fame, this book is sure to provide you with much fodder for discussion with your child about your stands regarding magic, deception, illusions, and performances for sensation's sake. This young man who had a hard family life; with much hard work, determination, and creativity became known for his ability to create illusions.
