James Randi is internationally known as a magician and escape artist. But for many years, he has also been active as an investigator of the paranormal, occult, and supernatural claims that have impressed the thinking of the public for a generation.
In Flim-Flam! Randi explores and exposes what he believes to be the outrageous deception that has been promoted widely in the media. Unafraid to call researchers to account for their failures and impostures, Randi tells us that we have been badly served by scientists who have failed to follow the procedures required by their training and traditions. Here he shows us how what he views as sloppy research has been followed by rationalizations of evident failures, and we see these errors and misrepresentations clearly pointed out. Mr. Randi provides us with a compelling and convincing document that will certainly startle and enlighten all who read it.
