This review is from: An Introduction to Parapsychology (Library Binding)
I had expected a book on the psychology of the paranormal, or "parapsychology" as it's called. This book contained nothing about what goes on, psychologically, in the mind of someone who believes themselves to be experiencing paranormal phenomena. Literally nothing. That wasn't the author's intention, apparently.
This is a collection of anecdotal evidence (to use that word loosely) attempting to convince you that the world is not as it seems. I did find it interesting, hence giving it three stars, but I didn't set out to be convinced. I set out to be informed about the PSYCHOLOGY of paranormal phenomena. I set out to be introduced to parapsychology.
I write this not to belittle the book, but to warn others in my position. This is not an introduction to parapsychology. This is a pamphlet on paranormal phenomena.
