Revue de presse

"Regardless of where the truth lies, Uri Geller is one of the most fascinating people of all time and has created a great debate. THE SECRET LIFE OF URI GELLER is such a great book and really brought some new things to light about the importance of Geller and how the government looked at him and utilized him."
- (November 20, 2013)

Présentation de l'éditeur

For over 60 years, spanning from his childhood to the Cold War to the current day, former Israeli paratrooper and Six Day War veteran Uri Geller has been a major enigma. Is he merely one of the most convincing stage magicians in history, a multimillionaire entertainer, courted by presidents and rock stars? Or is the now 67 year-old UK resident the possessor of genuine paranormal powers, which have not only been tested and verified by the most demanding scientific laboratories in the US, but employed by the US and other western powers in secret operations?

In July, a sensational new BBC2 documentary by Oscar-winning director Vikram Jayanti aired, bringing to light the most convincing testimony ever heard much from retired CIA chiefs - that Geller, alongside being one of the most famous people in the world in his day, was, as late as post-9/11, operated as a psychic spy for the US military spymasters and those of other governments. But the revelations in the BBC film are merely the tip of the spooky iceberg according to FT and Observer technology writer Jonathan Margolis, who wrote Geller's biography in the late 1990s. Much weirder, scientist-documented paranormal phenomena manifested around Uri Geller in secret US government facilities throughout the 1970s and 80s.

In The Secret Life of Uri Geller, the always sceptical Margolis tells the full story of how a poor boy from a broken family in the back streets of Tel Aviv went from being a playground sensation whom friends recall as baffling hapless teachers with his strange powers, to a bizarre player in the Cold War superpower mind games of the 1970s, later reactivated for the war on terrorism in this century.

To those who remember Geller in his heyday to younger people who have barely heard of him, it is one of the strangest true stories ever told.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved the Secret Life. 28 octobre 2013
Par Joseph Curcillo - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
My first observation is that any person would be lucky to have the likes of Jonathan Margolis craft a biography of his life. Then, when he is provided an assortment of paints as vibrant as Uri Geller, his ability to paint a canvas knows no limits. Secret Life is a very easy read, but it provides rational detailed coherent arguments to explain the mysteries that have defined Geller's life.

From the experiences of his youth to the SRI labs to the world stage, people have watched Geller's life like an open book. This current book contains everything that was between the lines of that open book. The message that most touched me was the recipe for success through perseverance, commitment and an uncanny knack for publicity.

I found the story to be a fascinating. By way of third party support, interviews and documentation, it is a wonderful tale of the mystique of Uri Geller.

When one tells his own story, he is arrogant. When another tells the story, he is on payroll. Allowing the words of many others to share their "version" of your story is phenomenal. At a minimum, it is ingenious; at best, legendary.

Having first seen Geller on the Mike Douglas Show (or was it Carson?), and following him through today, I believe the fascination that is synonymous with his persona is greatly enhanced by the secret door unlocked in Margolis' writing.

I should note that 40 years after reading Puharich's Uri, I am relieved to learn that parts of the book were disturbing to Uri. I have always remembered that I classified much of the book as fantastically puzzling or creative fiction. In Secret Life, Margolis explains Puharich with great diplomacy and appropriate respect.

Uri Geller chose wisely by selecting a biographer who clearly understands him at his core.

I was fascinated by the chapters of his life that were unknown to me and most others. Even with foreknowledge from stories I once heard from Marcello Truzzi, the episodes shared in this biography kept my attention by filling in many details I found enjoyable. Details that will - i believe - add to his legend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A remarkable book about a remarkable man. Prepare to be amazed. 12 janvier 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Over the years Uri Geller has had many detractors. The odd thing is, many of those – scientists, politicians and those practising magic and mentalism - who started off regarding him as a fake or a fool have actually met him, and as a result have become close personal friends who now hold him in the highest esteem. Odd that, don’t you think? Meanwhile, those who make no secret of actually holding hate for the man have painted themselves into a corner. And this book is not going to help their case.

Written in a clear, non-hero worshipping style by a battle-hardened journalist, (just look at his CV) it uncovers some remarkable stories, many gleamed from recently unclassified documents from the Intelligence Community. It makes for absolutely fascinating reading.

There’s no showbiz flash and panache; just facts and figures. Quotes and photographs. One small example of the man’s influence is the key role – publicly acknowledged by other participants – he played in cementing a working agreement between the Israeli and Palestinian versions of the Red Cross, allowing them free passage of medics and ambulances through each other’s areas, including fast-tracking through checkpoints and roadblocks.

A remarkable account, by key figures in the Intelligence Community, who can now speak openly of the experiments and studies of Geller’s talents. It’s a book that is easy to read, yet packed full of interviews, facts and figures that never fail to astound and amaze.

The BBC produced a documentary that had those who saw it discussing it for days afterwards: that programme was just the tip of the iceberg. Here you get the story straight from the documents, the studies and all delivered in a no-nonsense writing style.

If you open this book thinking you know Uri Geller, you’re going to finish it with your mind changed. Highly recommended, both as a riveting read and a mind-changer. Definitely deserves a wider audience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Geller as Spy 28 octobre 2013
Par A Reader in the WV - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Jonathan Margolis adds a new book to the legend of Uri Geller. The Secret Life of Uri Geller focuses on Geller's CIA, Mossad and possibly other government and military connections. Part of the book is based on declassified documents from the CIA and scientists who worked with Geller in the US. It appears that those involved and with first hand knowledge of the scientific tests Geller was put through proclaim him the "real deal." Secret missions are alluded to and it all makes for thought provoking reading.

The latter part of the book is a recap of Geller's life from seeing the bright light in the garden to his early entertainment appearances in Israel, to his trips to Germany, the US and the sensation he created on the Dimbleby BBC television program in the UK up to his recent string of television series aired around the world looking for his successor.

Margolis wrote a much more thorough book on Geller -- Uri Geller Magician or Mystic but much of this spy material was not included in that volume.

I admit, I am a fan of Geller's. I find him a fascinating character, a true living legend. He seems so upbeat and positive and he looks fantastic! After more than 40 years in the public eye he can still captivate, amaze, entertain and mystify.

Everyone knows of Uri Geller. What more is there?

This book really meets it promise and exceeds expectations on delivery of a new "secret" Uri.

This book is so good, yet so much better than any other book written about Uri.

Uri has for long been seen to be some sort of untouchable human - perhaps a little beyond our grasp.

The secret life of Uri Geller is the book that ties up a lot of loose ends and brings Uri into the "real and tangible" domain. The scientific domain with professors, politicians, agents, spies and people otherwise esteemed and respected.

This book honours Uri's pioneering as a psychic superhero. Uri is revealed here as more than just a successful showbiz man and more of a real military superhero.

Read this book three times!.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm completely floored, this is the most amazing eye opening book I've ever read! 22 octobre 2013
Par ilikedrumz - Publié sur
I'm gob smacked! This book is absolutely shocking. If you thought you knew who Uri Geller was, read this - you will change your mind as I did! I'm so stunned that I'm now re-reading the book. This isn't just about Uri Geller, it's an amazing uncovering of recent history which will shock most people as it shocked me.
