There are many books out there dealing with the paranormal, but it will be hard to find any as thorough and entertaining as this one. It is filled to the brim with astonishing and mind-boggling facts, stories and anecdotes, and it is clear how the author has done his homework on the subject. We are led on a journey throughout time and culture and get a glimpse of how common so-called paranormal phenomena actually are and how entangled they are with our shared human history. We also get to learn more about the relationship between the paranormal, religion and science, and how it ended up being shunned by modern academics. This is a really fascinating story, which shows us how little we truly know about how consciousness and the universe work even though some might claim otherwise.
