Marco's Comments:
A descendant from the family of John Henry Anderson recounts his life from family documents. The biography is interesting but sometimes dry and is mostly a lisft of facts rather than delving in the Wizard's feelings or thoughts. Very little is said about contemporary performers, which is a shame. Basically nothing is said about his tricks and his methods, other than lists from his performances. Regardless, this is the best and more complete biography of Anderson.
