The Thought Reader Craze

The Thought Reader Craze, the story of the search by scientists in the period of about 1870 to 1910 to prove that telepathy was a confirmed fact of human nature; the interwining of that search with the just created stage mind-reading act; and the parallel story of the men, women and occasionally children who so successfully hoaxed the scientists. The search was also looked on as possilbly providing the first scientific proof of life-after-death. Available from McFarland Publishing Co., Inc. in both print and ebook editions. Winner of the 2013 Christopher Literary Award.
