Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Jim Karol is a seasoned magician and entertainer, performing in sold-out venues across the country. Lu Ann Brobst Staheli is an accomplished educator and author.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Jim has been doing shows at Philadelphia University long before I started to work there. Over the years, Jim and I have built a great professional and personal relationship. He has been entertaining our students for close to twenty years. Literally thousands of students from Philadelphia University have seen him perform his show. It seems that no matter how many times they see it, they are still amazed and confused as to how he does the tricks he does.

Jim works hard to fill the seats and loves spending time with his audience before and after the show. I’ve always been impressed with Jim’s energy and passion. He is a consummate professional and brings something different to the business. His show is entertaining, funny but also edgy, and different from others who are in the same business. This is why we have had Jim back over and over again. He doesn’t get old.

Enough of my Jim Karol plug!

Reading about Jim Karol's early years and his discovery of how powerful the mind (and HIS mind) is was downright fascinating. Following his journey from events like dreams that impacted him to how his goals of learning to use harness the power of his mind with everything from memorization to danger-defying acts was nothing short of amazing. The best part? He says that everyone has similar abilities and shows how readers can develop their own minds. Doubt I'll ever try the bear-trap thing, but I'm inspired to expand my own abilities.

Okay, so you know that friend of yours who always has these amazing stories to tell? The one who you're never entirely sure how much really happened and how much is embellishment? That's the way I felt when reading this book. "Wait, you did what?" Except the things he did, he did in front of thousands of people, on national TV, in front of scholars. Without giving too much away, Jim does everything from bending nails with his bare hand (don't even ask what he does with bear traps) to memorizing the zip codes of every city in the U.S. He memorizes an entire deck of cards cards in a minute. Then he tells you that you can do the same thing.

The great thing about this book is that Karol--and Staheli who co-wrote the book with him--show you how the same techniques that let him pull off these amazing feats can be used to improve your life. My only complaints are that I'd like the book to have been a little longer. You can read it in a few hours. And I'd have like more information on exactly how he Karol does what he does. But I guess a showman can't give everything away. Very enjoyable read!

Format: Paperback
Psychic Madman is a fascinating insight into the "super" mind of Jim Karol. At the age of seven, Jim has a dream--the first of many. He starts to notice a pattern that the things he dreamed about eventually happened. At first he decides it's just a bizarre set of coincidences, but as he tracks the events he senses are about to happen, something amazing happens. He realizes he has psychic powers.

Jim spends the next years learning more about his gift and how to use it. Not only can he predict events, but he has an incredible ability to memorize numbers and dates. He also discovers he can do things naturally that magicians use secretive methods to perform.

An incredible journey that is fascinating at every turn.
