Digital: Non-fiction: General
Everyday Extraordinary gently pushes back against unfounded popular beliefs with relatable stories, humor, and down-to-earth explanations. It inoculates readers against the dangers of conspiracy theories, medical quacks, psychics, and other purveyors of the paranormal. The book's 18 chapters tour the author's extraordinary experiences from early childhood to the present -- from a magic trick through a three-year-old's eyes, to (debunked) ghostly apparitions on a surveillance video. Readers share in the satisfaction of seeing the hidden mechanisms behind the illusions and superstitions.
