Humbug: The Art of P. T. Barnum
This carefully researched study of America's greatest showman, huckster, and impresario is both an inclusive analysis of the historical and cultural forces that were the conditions of P. T. Barnum's success, and, as befits its subject, a richly entertaining presentation of the outrageous man and his exploits.

Review: Humbug: The Art of PT BarnumUser Review - Goodreads
This seemed more like a book you'd pick up to do a report on PT Barnum in fourth grade, but if you're looking for some basic info on Barnum or circus history in general it's a good start. There are some interesting nuggets of info in the book. I finished it in about an hour and a half.
