There is more to Uri Geller than his countless "miracles" - and James (The Amazing) Randi tells all in this fascinating examination of the Geller myth.

- What really makes Geller run?

- 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"
powers?

- Why do people around the world continue to believe Geller has
magic powers, when his tricks have been exposed many times?

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

About the Author:

James Randi is a Canadian-American stage magician and scientific skeptic best known as a challenger of paranormal claims and pseudoscience. Randi is the founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF). He began his career as a magician, as The Amazing Randi, but after retiring at age 60, he began investigating paranormal, occult, and supernatural claims. Although often referred to as a "debunker," Randi rejects that title owing to its perceived bias, instead describing himself as an "investigator." He has written about the paranormal, skepticism, and the history of magic, and has published many books including Flim-Flam!, The Truth about Uri Geller, The Faith Healers, and The Mask of Nostradamus. He was a frequent guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and was occasionally featured on the television program Penn & Teller: Bullshit!.
