"David Jaher’s stunning and brilliantly written account of the battle between the Great Houdini and the blond Witch of Lime Street illuminates a lost period in American history. Improbably, it also offers significant lessons about the formation of people’s beliefs and the sources of social divisions—scientific, political, or otherwise. Jaher helps to explain how and why the most highly educated people can diverge on fundamental matters, even when the evidence is altogether clear."
If you have a subscription of The New York Review of Books website, you can read the full review online here.
The Wall Street Journal also has a nice article about the book and Houdini's ghost-busting: The Clear-Sighted Illusionist.
You can read my own review of The Witch of Lime Street: Seance, Seduction, and Houdini in the Spirit World HERE. The book is available on Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK).
