Book Description

15 Mar 2008 Mysteries, Legends, and Unexplained Phenomena
Many people have experienced psi, whether as a sense of having been in a place before (deja vu), hearing a voice in their head that gave them guidance, or following their intuition. For some, these events can be attributed to coincidence, but for psychics, such episodes occur more frequently and intensely, often manifesting in dreams, trances, signs, or sensations. "ESP, Psychokinesis, and Psychics" explores the people who profess to have such talents and surveys the different ways of reading psychic signs. It examines the skeptics and organizations who investigate supernatural phenomena and expose possible fraud and looks at how the media portray psychic phenomena in everything from Harry Potter gazing into the Pensieve to TV shows like Ghost Whisperer and Medium to psychic crimefighters. Finally, readers are given the information they need to test and develop their own psychic abilities.Chapters include: Psychics - Who Are They and What Do They Do? Psychic Abilities, or How Do They Do That? Testing, Testing, or Does Psi Really Exist? Becoming a Psychic; and, Talking - and Listening - to the Animals.

4.0 out of 5 stars ESP, Psychokenesis, and Psychics 14 Feb 2009
By Suzy Wildwood - Published on
Here is the most recent offering in the series: Mysteries, Legends, and Unexplained Phenomena. Written and edited by two experts on the paranormal, this well-researched and fully annotated book is an interesting and informative read. From Nostradamus to modern psychics Jon Edwards (Crossing Over) and Alison DuBois (the inspiration for the popular TV show Medium), this book covers a wide range of subjects. The authors trace the general history of the field and then zoom in briefly on specific topics, e.g., precognition, dreams, psychic detectives, animal communication, Spiritualism, scientific testing of psychic (psi) abilities (including the CIA's formerly classified remote viewing program), and a whole lot more. Earlier skeptics like Houdini as well as contemporary debunkers of the paranormal are presented without bias. There is a short how-to section that gives the reader exercises for developing and testing ESP using zener cards (cards that are blank on one side and have shapes pictured on the other). And, of course, there is the requisite caution about playing with Ouija boards.

A bit puzzling, however, is the book's somewhat nondescript visual presentation. With its blanched tones and retro graphics, the cover hearkens back to a much earlier decade; this book hardly jumps off the shelf into your hands. The inside layouts are pleasing but not exciting and feature a whole lot of beige. Medieval woodcuts and mostly black-and-white photos illustrate the text throughout. Understatement is the keynote here. Perhaps the publisher wished to set this book apart from the many sensationalized offerings on the market. The result is a factually accurate and eminently readable reference book, complete with endnotes, a bibliography and a comprehensive index. ESP, PSYCHOKENESIS AND PSYCHICS is a very good introduction to these unexplained phenomena, and would be an excellent addition to any school or library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Information about the Paranormal 15 Sep 2013
By Diana Mcmanus - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great little book about lots of information about the paranormal. It tells about people who have these amazing gifts and their tools. I use this as a reference book when I want to refresh my memory about this subject because I often have some of those gifts myself as I like to contact spirits.
