- 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"

It's interesting to note that the two negative reviews listed here are both people who believe in the types of fairytales that Geller is trying to pedal. Some ignorance cannot be undone, I suppose.

Uri Geller, like all 'psychics', are only out to make a buck, and here's the proof. If you believe this bunk (or if you know anyone who does) this book is one you should read. And if it doesn't convince you that Geller is a fake, read it again...this time, with an OPEN mind.

This is one of the best book ever written on the subject of paranormal. It exposed Uri Geller with style. The book is funny and witty. Mr.Randi is amazing! Took bad teachers today are of low intelligence.

Randi is a superhero. By day a public speaker and an Amazing honest liar (magician). By night though, he tirelessly works to make sure fellow magicians arent scamming you for money using stage and street magic. Matt Love

This is one of the most amazing book ever written. Brutally honest and wildly funny. Mr. Randi is a genius.

the statements made in the book were unjustifiable, relentless and a waste of time for those who no the real meaning of what remote viewing stands for.

After reading the Truth about Uri Geller, I now believe in Uri's paranormal powers. I loved seeing him on Roseanne Barr talk show where he demonstrated his positive psychic powers. Randi's arguments make no sense. What does ripped trousers have to do with bending a key? The flower was a circle so was the face. Did Randi send Uri the wrong telepathic message? The arguments that Randi and Bernard Bixon present in this book make no sense.

I am very perceptive and have had many dreams come true. I have a close friend who is an anchor on a very popular tv show. She once had Uri Gellar on as a guest on the live show to perform mentalism spoon bending. She was a sceptic to say the least so she brought her very own spoons. At the end of the show she recovered her spoons and has them today in her kitchen. He is the real deal!
