Originally published in 1906, The Right Way to Do Wrong was a master class 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 a writer as he was a magician–and open 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.

“He was the wonder of the world in an old world hungry for wonders. . . He was the embodiment of something incredible. . . He came to represent the sum of all amazements.” –The Guardian
