Mindreading and Telepathy by Hanussen
You are about to enter the rather strange world of Erik Jan Hanussen, who was a figure of mystery and controversy in the strange twilight world that existed in Germany between the two great wars...
...There is also a great deal of introductory material - four introductory remarks by different people connected in some way with this type of performance, as well as Hanussen's own introductory and often pseudo-scientific, pseudo-historical material.
All of this gives you a glimpse of Hanussen's mindset, as well as his own background and experiences. It's definitely worth reading, especially Banachek's because he's quite experienced in the field...
So, what's all this fuss about Hanussen all about? Can he really read minds? That depends on whose definition you're using.
By its definition - yes. Was he really a telepath? Again, this depends on the definition you use. By its definition - yes.
