James Randi

James Randi (born Randall James Hamilton Zwinge; August 7, 1928) is a Canadian-American stage magician and scientific skeptic
Randi is author of 10 books, among them Conjuring (1992), a biographical history of noted magicians. The book is subtitled: Being a Definitive History of the Venerable Arts of Sorcery, Prestidigitation, Wizardry, Deception, & Chicanery and of the Mountebanks & Scoundrels Who have Perpetrated these Subterfuges on a Bewildered Public, in short, MAGIC!. Its title page says, “By James Randi, Esq., a contrite rascal once dedicated to these wicked practices but now almost totally reformed.” The book selects the most influential magicians and tells some of their history in the context of strange deaths and careers on the road. This work expanded on Randi’s second book which was called Houdini, His Life and Art

Randi also wrote a children’s book in 1989 titled The Magic World of the Amazing Randi, which introduced children to magic tricks.
He is currently working on A Magician in the Laboratory, which recounts his application of skepticism to science.

  1. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I think I’d by
    no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated
    and extremely vast for me. I am looking forward on your subsequent publish, I will attempt
    to get the hang of it!
