I was amazed to see that this book only has 3 reviews on Amazon so I decided to start a campaign about it. Out of the 3 reviews one of them is 5 stars – a second is a glowing review but only 3 stars, and the third is just plain weird. It’s an easy read and makes me think of Randi as a sort of Indiana Jones of new age spiritualist debunking.

In this book, Randi explores and exposes what he believes to be the outrageous deception that has been promoted widely in the media. Unafraid to call researchers to account for their failures and impostures, Randi tells us that we have been badly served by scientists who have failed to follow the procedures required by their training and traditions. Here, he shows us how what he views as sloppy research has been followed by rationalisations of evident failures, and we see these errors and misrepresentations clearly pointed out. Mr. Randi provides us with a compelling and convincing document that will certainly startle and enlighten all who read it.
