A dazzling tour through the strange and colorful world of magic and magicians—an exploration that probes the limits of perception, the mysteries of consciousness, the road to mastery, and the art of deception, and opens us to a new way of seeing our world and ourselves. Not to be missed for devotees of illusionists from Harry Houdini to David Blane to Penn & Teller, and a must-read for fans of The Night Circus, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Alex Stone’s Fooling Houdini is, in the words of Joshua Foer, “an enthralling journey into the inner world of magic. Alex Stone writes with a winning voice that you'll want to follow anywhere.”
