One of the most intriguing and recognized figures of the twentieth century conducts a masterclass in subversion

Originally published in 1906, The Right Way to Do Wrong was a masterclass in subversion conducted by the world's greatest illusionist. It collected Hou­dini's findings, from interviews with criminals and police officers, on the most surefire ways to commit crime and get away with it.

This volume presents the best of those writings alongside little-known articles by Houdini on his own brand of deception: magic. Revealing the secrets of his signature tricks, including handcuff and rope escapes, and debunking the methods of his rivals, he proves himself to be just as clever and nimble a writer as he was a magician--and surprisingly free with trade secrets! All of which makes this unique selection of works both the ultimate anti-etiquette guide and proof that things are not always as they seem.

In an exclusive introduction to this volume, Teller--magician, comedian, and silent sidekick of Penn Jillette--speaks up about the greatest magician of modern times.
