The irascible James Randi, a onetime MacArthur ”Genius” award winner and professional magician, takes on thousands of years of cranks, fakes, charlatans, and wizards. An Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural is less a scholarly text than a diatribe against the dubious, from the abominable snowman to zombies.
