This is a good book if you need a crash course in ghosts. You really don't get to the ghost stories until the author is sure you know the lingo and defintions of these. It is a good book for the uninformed first time ghost readers.

I think the book is a crash course if you will to ghost hauntings and the like, although it is childish in some respects,It is also infomative on the histories of paranormal,ghostly hauntings and such. I don't think the book was ever ment to be as serious as a text book,I think it was made to tell the simple histories easily documented in a light-hearted way and to ask yourself ouestions and to inspire your imagination.I myself found it a very nice read. For annyone intrested in ghosts and hauntings and their origins,in time and history I think you may like it.

Ghosts and hauntings are a part of the whole about other worldly entities. This book reads like a boogey man book for children. The book isn't taking this subject seriously. By the time you've read this the ghosts or something else will have already haunted you! Two thumbs down.
