The first of his twelve books, The Flying Cow, in which he described his experiences investigating the psychic side of Brazil, was translated into six languages and became an international best seller. His most recent book is Telepathy - the Twin Connection. He now lives in London and is a council member of the Society for Psychical Research.
D.Scott Rogo FATE - an excellent blow-by-blow description of what life with a poltergeist is like. I know of no other book that gives such a detailed account - A wonderfully human document. Brian Inglis WHAT'S ON - a mass of corroborative evidence - backed by months of observation, supplemented by tapes and film and a variety of sophisticated gadgets - Unquestionably it was a genuine haunting. Bob Rickard FORTEAN TIMES A thoroughly commendable effort, providing us with a unique record of a poltergeist which, I am sure, will stimulate analysis and debate for years to come. Richard Whittington-Egan CONTEMPORARY REVIEW The log of events is meticulous and provides the reader with an exceptionally full and satisfying account of what must regarded as an extremely important record of a contemporary outbreak of poltergeist activity. Isa Gray THE STAR, JOHANNESBURG Brilliantly written book of compelling interest throughout. Alan Gauld PSYCHOLOGY NEWS My sympathies lie with Mr Playfair and with his colleague Mr Grosse, whose perseverance and resourcefulness in the face of numerous problems impressed me more and more as I read on. Sam Syers HAMPSTEAD & HIGHGATE EXPRESS A classic of its kind.
