'It's good to see this complex subject laid out with such clarity and without bias. A fully rounded introduction to the topic.'* Skeptical Intelligencer *
"A wonderfully clear and engagingly written introduction to the domain of parapsychology, that manages to be broadly encompassing, rigorous, and scholarly, but yet remain nontechnical. In a highly controversial domain of science in which many scientists have been quite closed-minded and dogmatic, this book presents a balanced, open-minded, and data-driven overview of the domain and its controversial nature... an excellent read for those who just want to know what's been studied, how it's been studied, and what's been learned so far, as well as for those who want to go on and conduct serious research of their own on the topics covered."-- Robert Rosenthal, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside
