I bought this book as it was the next book for the book club I was in. What a waste of my time and money. Mr. Holzer clearly embelished in his descriptions of the hauntings he wrote about. In his intro he clearly states that "There are dangers involved in this work, but only for the amateur". I then thought he was a real professional but the more stories I read, it is clear he is not.. He said in one story, that a person was possessed and low and behold, a medium was able to exorcise the person?! Really?! What a disappointment and "boo" to whoever thought this was a worth while book. Save your money and read something else.
There were parts of this book that were very interesting to me and other parts that were so boring that I skipped on to the next section. It was too much of a coincidence to me that the "medium" that he talks about in some of the first stories seemed to say very similar things at different locations. I do believe in hauntings because I have lived in a haunted house, but just think some of the similarities are a bit too coincidental. The interesting bits were very interesting, despite the parts I decided to skip over.
