Flim-Flam!: Psychics, ESP, Unicorns, and Other Delusions - James Randi

"Folly and fakery have always been with us, to be sure, but it has never before been as dangerous as it is now; never in history have we been able to afford it less. At any other time in history, we would be grateful to any hard-headed realist who undertook to expose knaves and rascals, and would applaud his courage. How much more must we express our gratitude and admiration to someone doing so now at this critical point in history. Randi is one person who has the ability and the temperament for the job;—none better!"
Isaac Asimov

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. Amazon
