I loved this book, and you needn't worry about your kids attempting any of his feats, unless your kid is an absolute moron and decides to go eat some needles. The book tells you no more about any of the imitable tricks than their names. Only will you get any type of description from something like the Chinese torture cell. Just simply tell your children he was an expert and even many magicians now wont even attempt some of his tricks. And that is only if your kid is one of those "evil geniuses" who is smart enough to give it a running jump and is willing to do it.
