The Times Diary.

Bernard Levin

The frightening truth society dares not admit

Mind you, if the reviews of Brian’s present book are predictable, the reviews of his second volume have, in a sense, already been written. For in that, when he gets down to it, he will be discussing – indeed, it will inevitably form a large part of the work – the phenomenon of Uri Geller, and the most interesting thing about him is the terror-filled rage that he inspired among people who could not bear the thought that he might be genuine. And thereby hangs a tale, for there were scientists who tested his achievements in strict laboratory conditions, came to the conclusion that they were genuine, and then refused to publish their findings. Fear of the truth in the universe is one thing; fear of one’s own truth is even more remarkable. Brian Inglis’s book is powerful Dutch courage for the conquering of that fear; I look forward with relish to its reception at the hands of those who still find their nerve not strong enough.

“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)

“Absolutely amazing”

Mick Jagger

“Truly incredible”

“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.”

Clint Eastwood

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