Don't bother with this biography. I have read at least three far superior ones in the last two weeks. There is no unique information or insight in this publication. Don't waste your time.

For young readers the three titles listed below are vastly better written and researched:

1. Who Was Harry Houdini? by Tui T Sutherland

2. ESCAPE! The Story of the Great Houdini by Sid Fleischman (a renowned children's author who knew Houdini's widow personally)e

3. Harry Houdini: The Legend of the World's Greatest Escape Artist by Janice Weaver
