Product Description

Product Description

"Mark Edward is an equivocator, fibber, and mountebank. Which begs the question: if a liar admits to lying, can he be telling the truth? He is a literate, informative, intellectual, a student of the psychology of humans, a foe of those who would defraud the public for personal gain, and as an author and practicing psychic, he is first and foremost an entertainer."—Joel Moskowitz, International Brotherhood of Magicians

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

Now Edward is a magician who works the Haunted Castle in Hollywood and is also on the editorial board of Skeptic magazine, where he reveals the means of psychic scamsters. This entertaining book is at once a confessional and instructional regarding human belief and those who exploit it.

Though Edward believes that most practitioners of the psychic business are out-and-out scam artists, he also counters the skeptic belief that the supernatural is a lie.

Both skeptic and skeptical of skepticism, Mark Edward has worked as a 900-number psychic, ghost hunter, and Hollywood Magic Castle medium. He has also worked vigorously to debunk psychic frauds and currently works on the editorial board of Skeptic magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Informative 6 Aug 2013
By VC
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read a few books on the subject of hot/cold reading and the way psychics work, but never one from someone who has worked the circuit. It was really interesting to read about the tricks and skills being used in practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exposure of psychic scams 7 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A must read from someone who knows the psychic business inside and out. Not complicated but straight to the point with great humour, yet serious about how Psychics work.
Thank you Mark Edward for an enjoyable book.
