Read full description of the books: Spellbound: the wonder-filled life of doug henning

By 1974, magic had lost its mass appeal and there was no such thing as a celebrity magician until a skinny, bucktoothed kid from Winnipeg became an overnight star in an unlikely Broadway musical called The Magic Show. Doug Henning, with his refreshingly modern approach to the art of illusion, permanently changed the face of magic and reintroduced an entire generation of audiences to grand illusion as a theatrical art. John Harrison traces Doug's stunning rise to fame from his humble beginnings in the Toronto coffeehouse circuit to his fantastic success as the world s first celebrity magician in fifty years. Told with exacting detail and reverence for its subject, Spellbound: The Wonder-filled Life of Doug Henning is an engaging story about the making of a master illusionist and his unrelenting search for real magic. From the highest rated magic television special in history, to three Broadway shows, to a decade of touring, John Harrison takes us on a backstage tour of Doug s performing life and gives a behind-the-scenes look at the mysterious world of grand illusion. All of Doug s astounding feats, like making an elephant vanish and walking through a brick wall, are featured in this engaging biography of a man who believed he would one day be able to levitate without resorting to his illusionist s bag of tricks. As amazing as his onstage life, Doug Henning s journey through the bizarre world of transcendental meditation and his brush with politics are told with equal intrigue. Spellbound: The Wonder-filled Life of Doug Henning is as exciting as Doug Henning's miracles themselves, filled with captivating adventures, like Doug's harrowing moments while submerged upside down in Houdini s Water Torture Cell on live television, his several heart-stopping incidents with rampaging tigers, and his attempt to build an amusement park in Niagara Falls. From his first magic trick making a quarter disappear to his eventual retirement from the stage at the height of his career, the fantastic life and career of Doug Henning come vividly to life in this magical biography.
