"A vastly entertaining enquiry into the roots of magic and science, from the Stone Age to the New Age. With unflagging wit and a sharp critical eye, Aveni reveals surprising links between the minds of ancient astrologers and alchemists and today's gene manipulators and particle physicists. "Behind the Crystal Ball" digs deeply into the relationship between magical and scientific thinking, in a style that's authoritative yet down-to-earth, and frequently hilarious." - Evan Hadingham, Discovery Magazine on the Discovery Channel
