Flim-Flam! Psychics, ESP, Unicorns, and Other Delusions is a 1982 book by magician and skeptic James Randi about paranormal, occult, and pseudoscience claims. The foreword is by science fiction author Isaac Asimov.

Randi explores topics which he says that scientists and the media are too willing to promote without skepticism and proper expertise. A New York Times review said it is "a healthy and often hilarious book."[1]

Currently the book is available in English, Norwegian, Polish, Spanish, Italian, and Chinese.[2]
