Other reviewers point out that you could find everything in this book on the internet, etc.; while this is true to a certain extent, I give this book credit for two things:
1) the author seems quite objective and thorough, while on the web you need to waste your time looking at a bunch of biased and/or nutty sites before finding something good (if ever);
2) I'd actually never heard of many of the phenomena described in this book, so would not have even known to look them up; in any event, it is nice to have everything in one volume.
While I enjoyed the book, it is not perfect; it is fairly dated at this point and so might not reflect the latest info, and the author's choice of included topics is also a bit quirky, although it looks like he covers more topics in a second book (History's Mysteries).
It is a good introductory overview and an excellent reference book in this subject.
All in all, a very good starting point for anyone wanting to research further on any of the presented topics.
