Product Description

About the Author

Zak Bagans never believed in ghosts until he came face to face with one during a terrifying incident in a Michigan apartment. Not the passive type, Zak set out to learn more about the paranormal. In 2004 he produced an award-winning documentary film that changed his life and the lives of many others when he captured one of the most shocking pieces of paranormal evidence ever. Now the host of two top-rated paranormal television shows, Bagans has conducted hundreds of investigations into the unknown, becoming intimately familiar with the places ordinary people will not go. Kelly Crigger is not a paranormal investigator, but has been intrigued by the paranormal for many years and has conducted several investigations alongside Zak. He is the author of three books, including "Title Shot," and over two hundred internet and print articles. Crigger retired from the US Army in 2011 after 24 years in uniform.

Ever since i started watching Zak and his Ghost Adventures crew on satellite t.v a few years ago i have been hooked. They are the kings of ghost hunting. I have all their DVD's so far so just had to try Zak's book. Its very informative and it is interesting to read about his childhood and teenage years and what he went through which led him to who he has become now. His own paranormal experience helped him to try and understand a subject that i and many others find utterly fascinating. He talks about various things like different types of hauntings and how he has been affected by them, the adventures the crew have been on that have not made it onto screen, he gives advice to wannabe investigators and what they should be looking out for etc etc.... All in all a good read and what i also like about Zak, Nick & Aaron is that i feel that they are totally genuine. If they get scared ( which they do often) you will feel it too. It's like you are on the investigation alongside with them. And they will quickly try to debunk anything as well if they are unsure. They take their mission very seriously unlike some who are just out for fame and fortune. Maybe all the skeptics out there should give this book and their television programmes a whirl and see if they then maybe think about the paranormal in a new light. It has made me think twice i must say!!

Admittedly I'm hugely disappointed in this book. I love anything paranormal based, books, TV, films, and have been on several ghosts hunts myself. So after watching Ghost Adventures, and thinking it's one of the most credible TV shows out there that deal with the paranormal, I was really excited to read the book of the lead investigator Zak Bagins.

I just wasn't as engaging as you would expect. Zak has fallen into the trap of bogging the reader down with too much science, and not enough personal anecdotes and experiences. I total understand that he wants to show he's a serious investigator with scientific methods and records, to encourage skeptics into considering the value of ghost hunting and the paranormal world, BUT... To pick up this book I already have an interest in this field! I also have a hundred books on the theories/ science of paranormal, that all deal with parallel universes, stone tape/ water theories, fringe science ETC, and I'm not ashamed to admit that when I picked this book up I wanted Zak's TV experiences, behind the scenes info, and a more personal insight.

Most of the info given is already well known from the TV episodes, there was nothing really new here except the explanation of Zak's first ghostly encounters, which are mentioned in his voice over at the start of the show. It would have also been nice to have some colour photos of the cast, and the professionals that are mentioned throughout the book, or even some stills of the most exciting evidence caught on camera (as not all episodes have been shown in the UK).

As much as I love Zak as a TV personality and paranormal investigator, I have to admit he could have done with a little more editing as an author! He likes to ramble, and LOVES to repeat himself!!

I got this book for Christmas and i could not put it down! In this book Zak Bagans explores the ideas of the paranormal and offers opinions from both sides of the board. He links topics to his own experiences and we learn more about him and how he now views the world around him. It is a must have for a GAC fan who doesn't mind a fair amount of reading. It is very interesting and offers tips on how to also investigate.
Very good, hoping for a second book!

Perhaps a wiser choice would have been NOT to read this book at night. Not because it was scary but because I was completely hooked! I to read till 3am last night to finish the book!

From the very start Zak takes you on a personal adventure through childhood to adulthood, explaining why he is so involved in the paranormal. He is highly intelligent and has some very shrewd ideas on how to revolutionize the scientific paranormal world.

This book is a must for any paranormal investigator who is serious about the future of paranormal investigation.

You have to be a Ghost Adventures Fan to really appreciate this book. As Zak talks about the investigations I had a clear view in my mind because I had watched all the shows. He goes on to explain all the relevant details about the equipment they use and why, and how they investigate. It was extremely well written and flowed easily. I enjoyed this book and still enjoy the show. It was good to get a little background information on Zak and how the team set up. I enjoyed his thoughts and ideas on the future of ghost hunting and recording data. I actually didn`t like the show at first because I thought he was just a loud mouth oik wading in feet first, but the results they got were brilliant. When you start to understand why they investigate that way it all becomes clear, they ask for proof and get it and ultimately don`t run away screaming like some shows do! A good read and recommended for any ghost enthusiast, both factual and entertaining.

I love watching the TV programme so knew I'd enjoy this book. It was really interesting and VERY creepy so don't read about demons when you're on your own late at night! I did laugh out loud at some of the clichéd expressions Zak uses when he writes, but it's the same way he speaks in his show so you can't complain really.

The only thing that was really disappointing is that I read this on the original old school Kindle and you can't read some of the 'Did you know?' bits. The headline appears twice then you get a few lines and the rest is hidden. Some of these looked really really interesting so that was a shame. That's Kindle formatting though so if you have the book itself then you won't have that problem. I'm not sure if it does it with the Paperwhite too...

So overall, if you look past some of the cheesy lines, this is a great read which I think you'll enjoy.
