- Why have scientists reported on all Geller's "successful" psychic
tests and ignored his many failures?

- Why will Uri perform almost anywhere, anytime, except in front
of professional magicians?

- Can Geller actually bend spoons, keys and nails with his "psychic"

magic powers, when his tricks have been exposed many times?

In an eye-opening exposť, Randi provides a devastating blow to Geller and the pseudoscience of parapsychology.

Outstanding expose of Uri Geller. I first read the this book at 18, and it's been one of my favorites ever since.

Reviewed July 2002
Extremely interesting yet dated, Uri is all but forgotten to American culture. I'm sure this book was really controversial at the time, I wonder how much impact it had on Uri's
demise? I understand that because of this book Geller sued Randi and CSICOP and that is the reason between the friction of the two. Apparently CSICOP dropped out and left Randi with terrible costs. I spent two hours waiting at the airport with Ray Hyman who told me of his experiences with Geller. I have included these notes in this book.
Randi never seems to be caught, though Uri is always messing up. Randi does the same tricks but without the lax conditions Geller encounters, I don't know how much to put in what Randi says, he seems very full of himself (probably has reason to)
Throughout the book, Randi proves that Geller is nothing more than a talented magician with charm and good looks.
