A particular thanks goes first to Phyllis Schlemmer, authoress of The Only Planet of Choice. Phyllis believed in this book right from the beginning and encouraged me to continue. She also gave me kind permission to quote from Prelude to the landing on Planet Earth and from Uri (copyright Lab Nine).
Thanks and gratitude to Monique and Andrew Michrowski of the Planetary Association for Clean Energy, which Andrija co-founded. They too believed that this book should be published. As Andrew put it: “Bringing to the best light Andrija’s achievements and dignity.”
A special acknowledement to dear friends, Leonie and Paul Hoogstraten. Without Paul’s patient and kind assistance Memories of a Maverick might well have remained a mission impossible.
And finally to my husband Geert who patiently let me go off for weeks at a time in order to write this book.
Bless you all!

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
