Overview

Do you believe in life after death? Are you convinced that there's a ghost making himself at home in your attic? If you are, get ready for this strange study of the supernatural! There is rarely smoke without fire, and paranormal happenings have been cited throughout the ages, in all cultures under the sun. Things go bump in the night, lights turn on and off, people appear then disappear-there must be some kind of explanation for these happenings. Whether they are coincidences, imagination, or just freak occurrences, parapsychology has attempted to come up with a way to make sense of the irrational. Read dozens of stories of strange episodes, from mind expansion to astral travel, poltergeists to psychokinesis, and see how the science of parapsychology determines whether they are real or just imagined. Then draw your own conclusions! 272 pages, 20 b/w illus., 6 X 9.
