Wolfgang Schmidt is a journalist and wanted an answer to those questions. He travelled the world to find the human being with the extra-sensory capacity.
Was he successful?
In his book Psychics, Crooks and unexplained phenomena Schmidt documents his encounters with mediums, mystics and scam artists. Coming from a background of no-nonsense, hard-nosed investigative journalism, the author looks at claimed phenomena with a jaundiced eye—and still is impressed with some of the incidents experienced in his travels.
Schmidt’s writing is colourful and because the stage is the whole world, his stories grab you and make it fascinating reading—even if you are not interested in psychic phenomena. A book reviewer commented, “...it reminds me of the X-files.”
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Just read the book again and it still gives me the shivers. The author had experiences which most people just wonder about. Liked the investigative and sceptic attitude of the writer - and still tells it like it is, without letting his prejudice interfere. An excellent book for the searcher. Unexplained phenomena described as well as crooked psychics. 'Psychics, Crooks and unexplained phenomena' is highly recommended!
