    An awesome and very practical guide

    This is an awesome book - it provides easy-to-read information on everything you need to be a ghost hunter. It includes: Definitions of the different types of ghosts spirits and entities, Multiple investigation forms, step by step instructions on investigating a haunted area, suggestions (and pricing) for putting together your ghost hunting kit, Forming or joining a paranormal group, Information on ghost photography ... and lots more!! I have found this ENTIRE guide extremely helpful for me - I think you will too. But I have to say the part I very much found helpful was the investigation forms - it includes something like five different ones! I definatly think this is the best guide to ghost hunting I have ever read. Very practical.
