5.0 out of 5 stars Houdini scholars were not disappopinted by this book, 16 Jan 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Houdini!!!: The Career of Ehrich Weiss (Paperback)
Houdini scholars waited for a number of years for this book knowing that Kenneth Silverman had conducted meticulous research and extensive enquiries throughout the world into the life of Houdini. Previous biographies had only touched upon his life story and were either full of inaccuracies, largely generated by Houdini's own publicity material, or promulgated strange theories to try to explain the behaviour of the master escapologist and spirit medium debunker. No biography can ever be definitive but Kenneth Silverman's is likely to be the nearest we will get towards understanding the great Handcuff Harry for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate, Informative, Entertaining, 2 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Houdini!!!: The Career of Ehrich Weiss (Paperback)
When my magic shop customers ask me to recommend an excellent book on the life of Harry Houdini, I recommend Ken Silverman's book without hesitation. This author has meticulously researched the facts, and has produced a highly entertaining and informative book. Well illustrated, this book helps the reader create a clear picture of Houdini the man as well as Houdini the performer. MagicTricks.Com gives this book its highest recommendation.
