HN Review 77: Gellerism Revealed – Ben Harris

AD:
Step by step photos and instructions on how to bend keys, cutlery, stop watches, etc. Psychology and method are explained. Also contains an encapsulated history of Uri Geller's activities. This is some of the real work.


Review:
The book (first published in 1982) describes the techniques supposedly used by Uri Geller to perform his paranormal feats: bending spoons and keys, changing the time on a borrowed watch, starting broken watches.

Most of the material is outdated and will appeal to Geller fans only; for updated methods and handlings, Banachek’s Psychokinetic Time and Silverware come to mind.

I think it is published by Mickey Hades - forgot where I got my copy.
Harvey's review is right on the spot (as always - I am taking the risk of being bashed for supporting him, but his reviews are the only ones you can count on) - most of the stuff there is outdated (although there is a bend there that I still use)
get the banachek tape or the kuffs video instead.

Thanks, Nir
I just wanted it of pure interest and for historical reasons.
I'm very happy with the Banachek video

Although some of the bends are outdated, I feel there is alot to be learned from this book. The misdirection and psychology explained is quite useful, and there are a few bends/effects that I still use.

For learning how to bend, I agree, PK Silverware, or the Kuffs video are better, but Gellerism revealed is still a good read, and is great for reference.

As already stated, it's worth getting just as an interesting historical document. Not expensive either. I got my copy from http://www.dennymagic.com/
