I give this book, as well as the sequel, four stars, for the smallish nature of both volumes (114 and 130 pages, respectively).
Edit: Two psychology professors at Alberta, Canada's University of Lethbridge, Don Reid and John Vokey, academically (from a legitimate university!) debunked the effectiveness of "backward masking"/"backmasking" in February, 1983.
Heavy metal fans be forwarned to read about your favorite artists being slammed into a brick wall of infamy all based on their name. e.g., W.A.S.P., Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, etc. For its day, the book was probably an okay seller on newstands.
If a person is lucky enough to obtain the double cassette tape series of the aforementioned title, its hilarious to listen to nowadays, and sometimes a little creepy to hear some of the music segments played backwards none the less. I give this book five stars. Long before the Internet made ordering books possible, sometimes churches would have either this book or the cassette tapes in their chapel library for loan.
