Psychic Blues: Confessions of a Conflicted Medium

by Mark Edwards

Product Rating:

(Based on 1 reviews)
Category: Mentalism
Media Type: Book
Publisher: Feral House

Product Description

Mark Edward confesses that for years he exploited believers who wished to connect with supernatural ideas and sad family members who missed dead loved ones.

Edward is a professional mentalist who has worked the Magic Castle in Hollywood for over thirty years and is also on the Editorial Board of Skeptic magazine, where he has worked with other critical thinkers to reveal the methods of psychic scamsters. This entertaining book is at once confessional and instructional regarding human belief and those who exploit it.

Edward believes that most practitioners of the psychic business are out-and-out scam artists, and that the common need to believe in things supernatural is merely a part of human nature.

But as an expose about the paranormal business, well, not so much. James Randi's enthusiastic endorsement and foreword notwithstanding, by the end of the book, the reader has mostly learned that psychics are eccentric, gifted with gab, and often mistreated by those who hire them. You won't learn very much about the seedy underbelly of the paranormal business.

The book is not without its flaws. It could have a used a... [Read More]
