Psi and Quantum Mechanics

I'd be very suspicious of any books on the subject since psi does not exist. 
Aside from the numerous failures to demonstrate this scientifically (except for
some very questionable "successes") Isaac Asimov gave a very good argument
against it.  Simply put, if psi or telepathy or any of these mental faculties
were possible then it would be as common and as easy to demonstrate as vision. 
The evolutionary advantage of being able to predict the future or read
someone's mind is so large that it would easily have been selected for if it
were possible; indeed, if it were possible then everyone would have it in
abundance due to Darwinian selection.  Since it is not ubiquitous and since
even those who claim to have it cannot easily demonstrate that they do then it
must be impossible.
