Exposed!

Ouija, Firewalking, and Other Gibberish

By Henri Broch
Foreword by Georges Charpak, Translated by Bart K. Holland

From horoscopes to telekinesis to the Shroud of Turin, much of what is popularly accepted as a mystical or paranormal phenomenon is, in fact, bunk. Henri Broch’s charged deconstruction of these and other acts reveals the hucksterism of pseudoscience.

Broch provides a scientific explanation for what many accept as supernatural or psychic. He explains how some tricks, such as bending silverware with the mind, actually work. He details plausible, scientifically grounded alternative explanations for others, such as dowsing, which is the practice of finding by nonscientific means hidden veins of water, gems, metals, and other materials under the earth. Broch's hands-on experiments demystify the mysterious and explain the inexplicable.

Featuring a foreword by Nobel laureate Georges Charpak and translated from French by Bart K. Holland, this persuasively argued and firmly scientific book exposes some of history's most persistent bamboozling. Be forewarned, you may never be taken in again!

Reviews

What stands out in this book is that Broch allows the facts of his arguments to impress on their own, and they are impressive. Moreover, readers will be wowed by what he has dug up.
