Book review: Paranormality, by Richard Wiseman

The author is a well-known sceptic who often appears on television in that capacity to pronounce on claims for the paranormal. He has also worked as a professional magician so is well placed to detect fraudulent claims. In this book he examines various kinds of alleged paranormality and concludes, as one would expect, that none of them stand up to critical examination. The book is aimed very much at the general reader, being light in tone and even facetious at times. The publishers state prominently that it is written by Professor Wiseman, no doubt to prevent anyone from supposing that he doesn't have a serious point to make. [More]
