Anyone who considers reading this should question whether they really want to know what is.

So no matter if you are a skeptic or a die-hard believer of the paranormal, I think if you have an interest in this topic, you'll enjoy reading this book, too.

If you are a skeptic, you'll find the research substantial enough to reconsider your views.

My mother used to say, "Curiosity killed the cat." I was a curious child and an even more inquisitive adult - so reading "Impossible Realities" was like the best sugar high I've ever experienced because there was no crash. Only the anticipation one feels prior to embarking on a journey filled with possibility.

"Impossible Realities" is a compilation of scientific data, anecdotes and the personal experiences of Maureen Caudill, who spent fifteen years researching artificial intelligence and neural networks. If that sounds very "techie", let me assure you, this book is written in a style everyone can understand. It's a fascinating and eye-opening study of the science behind psychic and paranormal activity. If you are a skeptic, you'll find the research substantial enough to reconsider your views. If you are a believer, you'll rejoice in the validation. And if you're a student, you'll find a wealth of information from which to learn and study.

Maureen has compiled a thought provoking blend of information to support the existence of eight areas of psychic/paranormal activity: psychokinesis, remote viewing, energy healing, telepathy, animal telepathy, precognition, afterlife and reincarnation. I'm sure some of you are saying, "Hogwash!" And that's fine. Diversity of thought and action is what makes our world more interesting. However, I challenge you to read this book with an open mind and consider the possibility that these powers might exist.

The introduction tells a simple story about a village who believes swans are always white. And because no one had ever seen a swan of another color, a theory was born that all swans are white. The villagers accepted this as law. It was taught in their schools and never questioned until one day a little girl asked her teacher.

Impossible Realities by Maureen Caudill is a more scientific approach to paranormal phenomena. The author comes from a very scientific background, so even discussing such topics seemed outlandish to her, until it started happening to her. If you are interested in learning more about spoon bending, telepathy, reincarnation, remote viewing, and much more - be sure to read this book!

Impossible Realities is the type of book that can be life changing. If you are unsure of the paranormal possibilities in our very own reality, this book could shock you into seeking out the truth for yourself, and finding some truly awesome things in the process.

The topics in the paranormal realm included are: psychokinesis, remote viewing, energy healing, telepathy, animal telepathy, precognition, survival after death, and reincarnation. Each one is discussed to explain what it is, and also gives anecdotal and empirical evidence of each.

My favorite portion was the one with animal telepathy. Anyone who has had animals in their life knows that they can communicate with you. They can tell you things with more than just their barks or meows. I also enjoyed the spoon bending chapter, I just wish the author had taught us how to do it, too.

I really like this book. I've read many paranormal books, and this one that offers more a scientific focus on it, which I can appreciate. Paranormal enthusiasts will be drawn to reading this book because it offers a different perspective on the topics than many of the other books on the topic provide readers with. Skeptics that actually read it, may end up questioning some of their previous "beliefs" about the paranormal field.

I was hoping for more anecdotal evidence to serve as examples of the phenomena this book assures are truths. There is lots of explanation...but a shortage of instances wherein these phenomena manifested.

I heard Maureen Caudill on "Coast to Coast" promoting her book and got the Kindle version. I had long wondered about "psi energy" metal bending, as Uri Geller bent a door key as it lay in my palm by simply putting his finger on it. I met Uri in the lab of Dr. Thelma Moss at UCLA as I was invited there for a Kirlian photography demo being the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography, POP, at that time. Geller had been trashed by another editor at POP and was eager to prove to me he was not a fraud. Between the bent key and the remote viewing I am convinced he is authentic.

A few days later he called me from New York City and perfectly described the room in which I was sitting, including the swimming pool outside! He wrongly included a table that had been removed three weeks before and this was to be an important clue to the nature of the phenomenon.

Maureen's book is a disappointment as it needs an editor in spite of one credited. Regardless declaring how easy it is to bend flatware on "Coast to Coast" and in her book, no instructions are given and it remains beyond me. Miss Caudill does not answer inquiries with regard to this technique, which is behavior below the standard for responsible authors.

Ms. Caudill fails to define terms; uses "scientific data" and "evidence." There are no such "scientific" anythings and this is shocking for someone trained in physics plus an editor not seeing said flaws, but the book has value.

She reviewed many "psi energy" studies in spite of refusing to use the label. "Psi" is the 26th letter of the Greek alphabet, looks like a three pronged pitchfork, symbolizes the mysterious "energy" of psychic metal benders, healers and mediums, but not Maureen Caudill. To her it is just "energy." So much for "science.
