I really enjoyed reading this book, overall. As a 'seasoned' paranormal enthusiast and veteran reader of many ghostly haunting books, I found this one very reader-friendly. I highly recommend it for ghostly enthusiasts. The format is such that the first quarter of the book overviews the basics of paranormal investigating and the methods/equipment used. The author also explains how the equipment works, and why it is used. I think this would be good for those new to the field or topic. The rest gave brief, chilling accounts of real, known hauntings here in America. It also includes photos and references for paranormal radio shows and websites. The only part I was disappointed with was some of the stories were too brief or too vague. It made for great reading during my hour lunch break. It's definitely worth the money for the quality and quantity of content.

I just looked at this book to possibly purchase as a gift. As a Connecticut resident who has always been interested in ghosts and the like, I've done some research and even excursions. In the summary, it talks about the mystery of Dudleytown where everyone disappeared without a trace... that's not the true story at all. People left or died gradually. There seemed to be an abundance of strange occurrences and cases of insanity, but an entire village did not vanish. It's kind of turned me off from the book entirely...
