Carrellata non noiosa di tecniche e personaggi che hanno fatto la storia del paranormale. Di fronte ad ogni nuovo "sorprendente" potere, l'autore ripercorrendo le tappe della vicenda così come è avvenuta, ci mostra passo passo come scienziati e prestigiatori hanno in vari tentativi confutato la messinscena.
