This is a circus junkie's dream. The book is an excellently researched and written history of the evolution of the Barnum and Bailey Circus to its current manifestation run by Kenneth Feld's daughters. I learned so much about the celebrities and spectacles staged over the years. There are many wonderful visual aids to enhance your enjoyment including one in which well over thirty elephants are posed in tutus each one with its front legs on the back of the one in front. I never fully realized how extravagant it all was. Even today there is so much effort and care put into the production. I wish it was coming to town so I could go. ( )
