    A terrific book for any ghostbuster, beginner or otherwise

    This is an absolutely fabulous book! It explains in clear and simple terms the basics of parapsychology, what kind of techniques and equipment are useful in ghostbusting, and what questions should be asked (both privately and of your colleagues and witnesses), all delightfully illustrated. What I like best is how well it lays out the do's and don'ts to keep the beginner on the right track and out of trouble. It's a must-have book for anyone with an interest in ghost hunting by one of the true leading experts in the field!
