Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 534–535. Reviews the book, Minds and motion: The riddle of psychokinesis by D. Scott Rogo (1978). Psychokinesis (PK) refers to the alleged ability of mental events to affect physical events. The author reviews a varied catalog of PK outside the laboratory in order to generate a possible explanation. Skeptical readers, however, will find little in Rogo's presentation to challenge their incredulity. The author has bought the traditional belief of psychical researchers that genuine psychics often resort to trickery in order to supplement their erratic powers.
