Another Adler biography well done!

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-12-03) Very Good Permalink

Another Adler biography well done.  Covers his life from immigration and name change through his death.  Many of his famous tricks are described and illustrated.  Good examples of source documentation and additional web sites referenced.
