Overview

There are so many mysteries in the world that cannot be explained. Many have become legends just by their absence. Take for example the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. She was on her way to setting records for women in flight. In the course of one day, she became one of the greatest mysteries in the last 100 years. Today we can speculate her fate but very little else can be said of her and co-pilot Fred Nunan. Just like the many boats, planes and people who have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle, Earhart joins the men of Flight 19, who just faded from radar and entered into history.
The mysteries of the unexplained don’t just surround disappearances; they sometimes surround things we have found. Take for instance the cases of Spontaneous Human Combustion and the Crystal Skulls. Neither is explainable but both have made people search for some way to explain their mere existence. Some mysteries come from legends such as the Yeti, Bigfoot/Sasquach, Aliens, the Loch Ness Monster, Werewolves and Vampires. Are they legends based in reality, or just creative fiction?
One of the most popular mysteries is that of Paranormal Psychology or the research into Ghosts. Why do they exist and why are they still here? Some believe and swear they have seen them; others reject them without even consideration. Like with so many things like Ghosts and Aliens, it simply is a matter of do you believe?
Contained in this book are several opportunities for you to look into many mysteries from many different areas and fields. Keep an open mind and see how much you believe might be true and formulate your own ideas of the Unexplained.

    Ridiculously awful

    I'm a confirmed skeptic but I still like to read books on the "unexplained". I know it's not good for me, but they can be fun to read for kicks. As long as I can read a good story, I'm happy to go along with the suspension of disbelief for an hour or two. Unexplained Mysteries is laughable. It seemed there was something odd about it right from the start. It was like a reading a patched together collection of random articles, high school book reports, and Wikipedia entries. The writing style varied wildly from one topic to the next - one passage would be somewhat coherently written, the next would be written as if by a 10 year old. What's worse is that at least two portions - a list of mysterious disappearances, and a section on Amelia Earhart - were obviously ripped straight from Wikipedia. Pretty much word for word, even down to the article sub-headings. I know, because I checked (like any rational thinking skeptic should). In the disappearances list, within the e-book itself, the tell-tale "citation needed" note showed up. I'm not sure if this sort of thing violates copyright laws, or could be considered fraud, but I know I wouldn't have put my name on the cover.
