Editorial Reviews

Angus Trimnell
Conjuring, the wondrous and ever-popular entertainment of illusion, is Randi's passion, and he has made this clear by producing a lively, attractive history of the craft. Neither a chronology nor a catalogue, this volume moves between the categories, focusing on both the artists and their tricks--some of which have been performed, others just perpetuated in popular mythology. Randi writes clearly and with a light wit as he guides the reader through this subcultural profession without revealing a single secret. Brightly illustrated, this book will be a valuable item for any library collection.
