This book started a little slow to me, as at first, it seemed to mostly rehash various cases we had already seen on TV. However, as the book progressed, Ryan seemed to share more of his personal beliefs and experiences which made for a more interesting read. I was very impressed when Ryan revealed his bisexuality and discussed how it impacts his religious beliefs. As a gay Christian myself, I enjoyed learning his point of view. I was a bit disappointed that he didn’t elaborate more on his personal paranormal experiences as a child. He has alluded to them on TV, but I have never heard in detail what happened to him. I feel there are certain people that could be helped very much by reading this book.

    Nice Book!

    This book was a great book. It was nice to be able to read what happen behind the scenes of a show I do love. My only complaint it was a little repetitive. I think there were some things that didn't need to be in the book,but overall it was a nice book to read.

    A must-read if you're a fan of the show! I loved Ryan openness and honesty. The only thing I can say I was disappointed in was interviews with Occult Specialist Eilfie.  She comes across as snippy, bitter and just plain nasty to her fellow cast mates. She must be a real charm to work with, ugh..

    Ehh

    The ghost related stories were more of a retelling of Paranormal State episodes. What he tells you about himself was more interesting to me because I've seen all the PS seasons. The book might deserve four stars, but I gave it three because the way it was written bored me. I began wishing it was the end of the book already. I felt like I had to read the whole thing with a monotone voice.

    Good read!

    I was hoping to read a little more about Ryan Buell's personal background, but still I wasn't dissapointed. Ryan comes across as an old soul, very intelligent, and impressive. I also found a lot of his words inspiring. I would definitly read more from and/or about him.
