Marco's Comments:
Biography of the English "Chang", whose house is now propriety of the author of the book. Many colour photographs throughout the book. The book comes with an audio CD with an interview to the author on BBC radio about her subject. The book is concentrating more on the life of Chang (Samuel Wickes) in the house in Leamington Spa and on the research the author did on this magician. Unfortunately, it is very poor on his magic, his performances and his tours, being mostly based on research she did locally. The book could have also benefit from an editor, to eliminate repetitions and to make it more fluid.
