Editorial Reviews

Review

"One could not have two better guides than Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson when it comes to understanding the permeable membrane between our world and the one inhabited by paranormal entities. Seeking Spirits is must-reading for those who have experienced supernatural phenomena or those who have a passing curiosity about ghosts. Hawes and Wilson educate about the science of their field while relating compelling personal experiences, and gently remind us that being a ghost hunter is not just about understanding the dead, but about helping the living explore the parameters of this world." -- JODI PICOULT, New York Times bestselling author of Handle With Care and My Sister's Keeper

More About the Author

Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson head up TAPS, The Atlantic Paranormal Society. Built on Jason and Grant's interest in getting to the bottom of everyday, paranormal occurrences, TAPS is an eclectic but unified bunch. Jason and Grant are plumbers by trade, and their TAPS colleagues are in similarly ordinary professions: factory worker, office manager, teacher. TAPS has developed an impressive reputation for helping people with "unusual domestic problems." It has been more than a decade since Jason and Grant first met, and since then TAPS has grown in size and scope to become one of the most respected paranormal-investigation groups in America. It now has branches across the United States and affiliates in 12 other countries. Jason, TAPS' founder, is in his mid-30s and the father of three girls and twin sons. He enjoys spending quality time with his children, deep-sea fishing and writing screenplays.

Customer Reviews

I love true ghost stories.
Bleu Edee
A good few of the cases discussed turn out to be cases of "mistaken" hauntings than actual paranormal activity but that makes it even more interesting.
Of Ghosts and Wizards
Grant and Jason have obviously had some creepy, "make you think" things happen to them and this book was as fun to read as the first one.

First let me say as have others, I am a huge fan of the show and their investigative style. I have been heavily interested in the Paranormal for close to 40 years, and have read more on the subject than I can even begin to describe.

When I found the show a few years ago I was gratified at the objectivity these guys and their crew displayed and the way they came at the cases, first attempting to debunk the claims of their clients as opposed to most who seem to see paranormal activity everywhere.

I have seen and read others attempts to discredit Jason and Grants evidence saying most is hoaxed so as to boost ratings, I took much of this with a grain of salt. After all the team has been very succesfull on their television program, so some jealous negativity is expected to come their way. On to the book:

I read Jason and Grants first book and enjoyed it immensly, but this second has caused me to rethink their entire group and the authenticity of TAPs as well as their claims. I dont take this position lightly, again I have watched, and continue to watch every show the Ghost Hunters put out.

Reading this second book has me wondering how they were able to document the amazing claims on video that these cases present, while having such minor (in comparison) evidence show up on their tv program.

This second book tells of the following Paranormal activities caught on tape: Small black figures stacking furniture at a clients home. A large menacing black mass hovering over the team for minutes while the cameras are rolling. Objects caught on tape it seems at every investigation moving around by itself.

If you're a fan of the show Ghost Hunters, then you'll need to pick this up. Over all it was a good read.

There are a lot of good things about this book that were improvements over the last book. All of the cases are cases not seen on Ghost Hunters. That's a big plus. The cases were new to us, and they were a very interesting read. Jay and Grant both cases where they had evidence of ghosts, and cases they debunked. After all, not every house they come to is haunted. The cases ranged from some that really broke my heart to cases that made me laugh out loud. All's I'll say is that on one of the cases, a guy was having a **really** good time. It was really neat to see how Jay and Grant debunked some of the cases. Some of the debunking cases, I'd like to have seen on the show, but they didn't have the show back then.

I also liked how Grant told us of his first real paranormal experience. I don't want to say to much of it here because I don't want to spoil it, but man, it was an interesting read. I wish him the best of luck on it. (You have to read that part of the book to know what I mean.)

It was also interesting to see how Jay and Grant first met Krysten and Steve.

I also like that part at the end of each chapter entitled, "Ghost Hunter's Manual" This is the part were they tell tips of Ghost Hunting to people just starting out in the paranormal field. It was a really nice touch.

For me, the book feel short in some places. One of the biggest places it fell short for me is the use of the word "globules". We all know how they feel about orbs, and I'm glad they feel the way they do about them. For me, the problem is that Grant said how globules are signs of the paranormal.

I'm a fan of syfy's ghost hunters and I've read both of J&G's books by now. I personally prefer the first book, mainly because I prefer to read about cases not presented in the tv series. This second book contains chapters / tips relevant to those who aspire to investigate / start their own investigational team, which was not personally interesting for me. On the whole though, it's a very well written book, I breezed through it in 2-3 evenings. The icing on the cake, I have to say, is Grant's revelation. And I must give credit to the guys for demystifying a topic that has been so mysterious and petrifying to many, especially after watching one too many Hollywood's spin on this subject. 9 out of 10 for the first book. 8 out of 10 for the second. Keep writing guys!

Welconme to my 'Guilty Pleasure'. I LOVE Ghost Hunters. I have been a loyal viewer of Ghost Hunters on SyFy since it first aired. I cannot NOT watch a show, even if its a repeat. I've even purchased every season on DVD because each show is not only engaging and entertaining from a viewer standpoint, but Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson make you feel like you are right there with them. In fact, you feel like you know these guys. You trust these guys! There is nothing phoney or pretentious about Grant and Jason. They are two hard-working, honest, compassionate men devoted to their families who (through a shared interest in the paranormal) have also opened the door toward a greater understanding of the paranormal world through genuine concern for their clients and a search for the truth. The sincerity and professionalism of Grant Wilson, Jason Hawes and their investigative team at T.A.P.S. (The Atlantic Paranormal Society), combined with their use of scientific technology, as well as an open but objective attitude shows us they are not only serious about their investigations but strive to maintain a standard of ethics and honesty in their work. The reason I bring this all up in my review is because ALL of these attributes have been captured in "Seeking Spirits".

Consequently, I doubt its any surprise that I LOVE "Seeking Spirits" in which Grant and Jason share memories of their early cases as paranormal investigators. Each case is engaging, fascinating, suspenseful and (at times) frightening. Each case is told in such a way you almost feel like they are talking to you personally.
