"Robert Cracknell must be the least typical psychic in the world," writes Colin Wilson in his foreword to Cracknell’s autobiography. "To encounter Cracknell is a refreshing, or possibly a traumatic, experience. He is totally down-to-earth, blunt, aggressive and impatient. He is also intelligent, honest, and obsessively, almost self-destructively, devoted to his own vision of the truth. The fact is that, as a psychic, Cracknell is a total outsider… the alienated man who has to learn to turn his powers of development inward… Cracknell represents something completely new in this strange field of the paranormal... He has a natural vitality and frankness that makes his book absorbing reading. His is a voice that needs and deserves to be heard."
