This is the true story of a former Spiritualist Medium who decided to come clean and spill the real work. What is most interesting is that most of the demonstrations use chutzpah, not necessarily repurposed magic gimmicks, to make them work. While doing research, McCarron also found some very entertaining information from old news stories that he has sprinkled here and there, as well as a scathing editorial of Mrs. Garrett's book from a Spiritualistic newspaper.
Whether it's consumed for the story aspect, or for those who want to assemble their own séance routines, we believe this belongs on every psychic entertainer's bookshelf.

Interesting reading and the old newspaper review at the end is especially entertaining. Well worth the $8 spent.
