This chapter examines the abilities of alleged psychokinetic superstar Joe Nuzum from New York. It describes the author's observation about Nuzum's efforts to circumvent previously agreed-upon controls during a test and how he caught Nuzum cheating. The chapter also explains that Nuzum was sometimes innocently aided in his evasions by his enthusiastic but uncritical supporters, and highlights both the incompetence and treachery on the part of Nuzum's principal sponsor.

Keywords:   Joe Nuzum, psychokinetic superstar, New York, psychokinetic ability, cheating, fraud
