    1. The Amazing Randi isn't the greatest writer but he is certainly a guy I wouldn't want as an enemy. He was obviously obsessed with bringing down Uri Geller, the reknowned spoon bending psychic of the 1970's. What is more amazing than the Amazing Randi is that so few others were sceptical and Uri's deceptions were so simple. But everyone was always looking for the difficult explanation instead of just bending the spoon with his hands wgen you weren't looking. The Uri rules should have told everyon [...]


    2. I've no time for more than a line or two on this, but basically the book's essential reading for anyone interested in the rational approach to supposedly paranormal phenomena. Largely using the method of quoting in extenso from other sources -- newspaper articles, etc. -- and adding his own pungent commentary, Randi pulls apart the pretensions of the celebrated "super-psychic." Geller of course tried to silence Randi through multiple lawsuits, but, just like so many of his "psychic" stunts, that [...]


    3. As many reviewers have mentioned before me, Randi's tone really fails him here. While I understand that Geller had done his best to silence Randi, and made Randi spend a lot of money fighting lawsuits, Randi's smugness really sets the reader back. Which is especially troubling coming from a man who (usually) champions the scientific method. But here he's anything but objective.Part of the problem apart from the book's tone and is its bizarre sense of narration. Rather than run in chronological o [...]


    4. Discredits the supposed psychic Uri Geller. Written when Geller was a big deal back in the 70's, with a few details added several years later. Randi is a professional magician who figured out how Geller faked a lot of his tricks and performed them, or sometimes improved on them, in order to expose the fraud. Considering how much Randi talks about scientific rigor, the book could have used less angry sarcasm and more organization. It keeps jumping back and forth between describing Geller's perfor [...]


    5. I knew Uri Geller was kinda generally disliked for being a fraud, but I had no idea he was so successful in tricking so many over such a long period of time.James Randi is amazing. This book lead me to looking up his videos on youtube, the shows he had done in the past, and his TED talk etc. A very strong mind of reason - if anything in this book, and in general, he is too decent and too lenient to the crooks like Uri. But on the other hand, Uri and his ilk serves the purpose to prove how stupid [...]


    6. Even though the analysis of Uri Geller's trickery and the gullibility of his believers is described well, I found the tone of the book a bit unpleasant. James Randi rightly points out the flaws in Geller's claims but I could have done without the overt smugness. Also, Randi tends to repeat himself just a tad too much. It's still a very interesting read, though, and much of Randi's book could be applied to current 'psychic phenomenon'. Recommended if you are interested in psychic phenomena and ho [...]


    7. James Randi has the guts and the insights to expose Uri Geller, who has betrayed the magicians' trust never to pretend they have supernatural powers. By doing that, Randi has perhaps had to betray another trust: never to reveal how a trick is done. This is a brave and important book that should be available to all young and curious people who want to know the Truth about a clever and successful charlatan. Highly recommended!


    8. Ugh this book has such an air of playground tittle tattle about it! "Teacher Teacher looooook Uri was cheeeeaaating"Does anyone really care? Must of us over the age of 10 know illusionists and psychics are fake but we watch because we are amazed at the slight of hand and how easily we can be fooled.


    9. Battle of the Egos. James Randi vs Uri Geller. It's all so old hat now.This book has so many typos that I found it annoying to read. Who proof-read the Kindle version? I suspect no one. Near the end of the book James Randi was written as 'James Ranch': that's pathetic.Don't waste your time on this book.


    10. I've been wanting to read this book for years. The only flaw with the text is Randi's ego. I enjoy the technical nature of how Geller's tricks were performed, but Randi seems to take this holier than thou stance that is totally unnecessary.




    11. It astonishes me that after the devastating points raised in this book that Geller is still showing up in various places. One would think he would seek a wonderfully well deserved obscurity.


    12. This book was interesting on how science deals with the paranormal, also the lies that people tell themselves to keep believing. Though it was pretty much one note.
