I read this book after reading Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle which I highly enjoyed. Psychology and the Occult is along the same lines as Synchronicity - it is the rare exploration of supernatural phenomenon by a professional psychiatrist. I found this book to be really intriguing - although be warned - it is a bit difficult and may take some time to get through, even though it is a relatively short book at under 160 pages of content. The author's professional discipline when approaching the subject, and open-mindedness is interesting. His assessment of events seems fair and he really delves into some strange occurrences. I would have given this book a perfect score if it was presented in a more approachable manner - although it is still very much worth reading.
