"Psychic phenomena has long intrigued the young and old alike. Becker's exploration of the topic is sure to excite young people eager to delve into the unexplainable. The chapters include: Are You Psychic?, Mind Reading, Fakes & Phonies, Clairvoyance. Fortune-Telling, and Psychokinesis. What makes this book outstanding is the fun experiments that readers can try out for themselves. For example, in the section titled, "How's Your Aura?" an experiment involves holding a hanger and pointing it towards your friend who is 3 m (10 ft) away and asking the friend to concentrate his/her energy on moving the hanger. This activity is supposed to detect a person's aura.

For the more skeptical among us, Becker provides other explanations of psychic phenomena (i.e. the power of suggestion).
The entire book is presented in an easy, non-dogmatic fashion that encourages the reader to explore their own feelings about these phenomena.
The book is brightly illustrated with short easy to read, blocks of information. This fun-filled book is not only entertaining but also educational.
