The Spectacle of Illusion
The Spectacle of Illusion, Deception, Magic and the Paranormal is an investigation into the arts of deception as practiced and popularized by mesmerists, magicians, and psychics since the 18th century. Magician-turned-psychologist Matthew L. Tompkins exposes how sleight of hand and the power of suggestion have tricked the minds of even the most rational and cynical observers.
