"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From the Author
I spent over a year putting this book together. I had a lot of help from a couple of Rabbis in New York to a Muslim Imam from Egypt; who even with the language barrier and Skype interruptions, we were able to get a lot of the words and definitions correct with pronunciations etc.
Although I think this is the most complete book of it's kind out there, there is still more words and definitions that are being found each day; especially the demon section.

Besides the impressive breadth-of-knowledge, Stambaugh separates his “dictionary” – which is more of an encyclopedia – into four convenience sections: 1. Paranormal 2. Cryptozoology 3. UFOlogy and 4. Demons.
Gone are the days, when a paranormal investigator has to stand before a client and try to “guess at” the correct terminology for what he/she experienced, or vice-versa. This dictionary can be used as both a quick reference tool, or as something you'd want to read slowly to better enhance your knowledge of the preternatural.
Frankly, I now wouldn't want to go on any investigation without having this book within arms' reach. It is as valuable to me as any “tech gear” I might want to bring along on an investigation.
Kudos to Mr. Stambaugh for creating a tool which will be valid not only now, but for generations to come.

This book is amazing! I plan on cracking this thing open frequently. I like learning, as we are ALL learning. And while there are some who know a lot, nobody knows everything. This book will be an immense help to me.
