Title: Magic or Miracle? Putting Psychic Powers to the Test
Are there really people who can predict the future, find lost persons or hidden treasures, guess the content of sealed boxes or move objects without touching them? Many are genuinely convinced that they have these powers, but don't really know how to test them properly. Others have different motives for their claims… Drawing on the extensive files of his own research and that of CICAP, the Italian skeptics committee, Massimo Polidoro will examine some of the most bizarre claims made during the past 20 years and the original experiments devised to test them.
Massimo Polidoro, a journalist and writer, is cofounder and head of the Italian skeptics group CICAP. He began his career as an apprentice of James Randi and is now the author of over thirty books. A Committee for Skeptical Inquiry Fellow and columnist for the “Skeptical Inquirer”, his website is http://www.massimopolidoro.com.
