Title: Adventures in Wonderland: A personal perspective
Prof Richard Wiseman presents a veritable smorgasbord of skeptical oddities and delights, including the world's first film of a magician, experimental investigations into prophesy, the truth about flea circuses, and the solution to the world's greatest mystery. All new material and a free packet of peanuts for the best question.
Richard Wiseman currently holds Britain’s only Professorship in the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire. He frequently appears on the media, and has written over 60 academic articles and several books, including The Luck Factor (2003), Quirkology (2007), and his latest book, Paranormality (2011). Much of his research has examined the possible existence of psychic ability and the factors that might lead someone to believe that paranormal forces exist even if, in fact, they do not.
