‘The scientific community has been put on notice “that there is something worthy of their attention and scrutiny” in the possibilities of extra-sensory perception. With those words the respected British journal Nature called on scientists to join – or refute – millions of non-scientists who believe human consciousness has more capabilities for real perception than the five senses.’
New York Times editorial

The nearest I have come to influencing living things is making seeds germinate, which I have done twice on television recently . . . As with so many things I have done, the original idea was not mine. It came from the astronaut Edgar Mitchell, shortly after we first met in 1972. We were sitting and chatting with Dr Wilbur Franklin, when Mitchell suddenly produced a seed and asked me if I could make it germinate while he held it in his own hand. I just stared at his hand and concentrated on making the seed sprout. When it did, Mitchell and Franklin were delighted, but I was not. In fact, the experience scared me stiff . . .
I dedicate this book to my very close family Hanna, Natalie, Daniel, Muti and Shipi

“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.”

Tannens Magic Blog

“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)

“Absolutely amazing”

Mick Jagger

“Truly incredible”

Sir Elton John

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”

Johnny Cash

“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.”

Clint Eastwood

“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
