An upstate New York woman was gripped one day by the horrifying childhood memory that her father had involved her in satanic rituals. Jennifer recalled a time when she was four and was forced to witness animal sacrifices and the torture of infants. She even remembered being placed in a coffin with live snakes during these "devil parties". Thinking of those horrors as an adult, Jennifer was astounded that years ago no one in her family seemed aware she was being abused. Similarly bizarre tales of alien abductions, satanic possessions, channeling of spirits, and memories of past lives are not only reported, but also promoted in the media each day. But are these "memories" reliable, and should they be used as credible evidence in courts? -- Midwest Book Review

Along with the discussion and explanation of cryptomnesia itself, Baker goes on to explain how this very well could explain many of the paranormal beliefs shared by many people, including reincarnation, alien abduction, and ritual satanic abuse.
In addition, this book has one of the best explanations for the layman of the current knowledge about how human memory works. Even if you are not interested in how our memories can delude us into believing things that are simply not true, the discussion of memory itself is quite informative. This book also goes on to explain that delusions, hallucinations, and influence by the power of suggestion is much more common than many people think, and are not indicative of mental illness.
