PALM READERS, ASTROLOGERS and those who claim they can talk to the dead make the rounds of national talkshows. Even police departments enlist the services of “psychic” detectives. But what proof do we have that any of these claims are real?
Richard Wiseman and Robbert Morris provide helpful and professional guidelines to help health professionals, law enforcement agencies, cult investigators, scientists, and the public at large assess those who make psychic claims.
What testing procedures are needed to verify the presence of extraordinary powers? Can psychics pass the tests of science? The stakes for getting it right are high since poorly designed investigations can result in charlatans being mistaken for the real thing. Practical yet flexible guidelines for law enforcement, scientists and the public at large.
“Delightfully direct … A healthy and often hilarious book”.
