"Amazing revelations of fakers, who trade on the gullibility, superstition, and credibility of the public. Tricks of fortune tellers and fake spirit mediums that cause suicide, dishonour, poverty; that make the black magic of medieval ages seem like child's play, are her explained and illustrated in detail. Things you have previously believed to be supernatural are shown to be nothing else but clever manipulations. This book explains how to become a fake spirit medium, to be a fire eater, ghosts walk, spirit photography, spirits write visibly and dozens of other uncanny, weird tricks of the modern seers"."
