Quote from: Richard Wiseman

From time to time I will be posting about the books, people, films and performers that have inspired and shaped my thinking. Today it is James Randi’s Flim Flam. I have had my copy of this seminal book for over twenty years, and it still inspires me to this day. It is not just about the contents of the book, but also about the way in which I came to possess my copy….

Note that it is not just about the content of the book, but also the way in how he acquired it.

I can't claim to have such an experience, but I thought it was an interesting concept. Probably a healthy and maturing one as well.

What about you?
