After spending fifty years collecting Sawing in Half memorabilia, and the past year and a half researching and writing this incredible story, I couldn’t be more excited for you to see the finished product.

Learn how this trick became the most popular attraction in all of show business and then turned into a war that was waged on vaudeville and music hall stages around the world by many of the most famous names in magic. It is a tale of inspired originality, blatant thievery, backstage intrigue, unbridled egos and endless lawsuits. It is an illusion that has never stopped being reinvented and continues to baffle modern-day audiences. To coincide with the 100th anniversary of its first public performance, Mike is releasing this comprehensive history of Sawing a Woman in Half in the quality you have come to expect from Magic Words. .
