Collected within this book are stories that have been gathered that discuss psychic phenomenon. It begins with discussing the ghost that dwells in each of us, then on to the thought body or the double, the vision of the out of sight, premonitions and second sight, ghosts of the living on business, and finally ghosts keeping promise. It is taken from the perspective of the times and Stead tries to conquer some thoughts and conjectures that try to oppose this type of phenomenon. This should be read by anyone wishing to either study or explore this field. Stead did a great job at collecting and even recounting them for everyone else to enjoy.
Don't take such stories to lightly since our tax dollars have been used to fund what was once a secret group of our military who used what is sometimes called "remote viewing". It was real and it worked; probably still being used.
It begins with stories of multiple personality syndrome, continues on with tales of and theories on the "thought body" (what we would now refer to as a doppelganger), describes a multitude of premonitions, and only near the end do we find accounts of actual 'ghosts' (apparitions of the dead or dying).
However, if you are willing to trudge through the rather verbose style of the era, it does offer both interesting ideas and a glimpse back into the very early years of parapsychology.

The book was interesting but not quite what I was looking for. I was more looking for just stories, not an explanation as such. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Hermanator
These are a collection of some good and some not so good stories, but all in all it is very entertaining.Published 7 months ago by Christastic4444
This was a pretty good book. It does seem as if some of it is ridiculously fictionalized, but it's a good read despite that.Published 10 months ago by Amber Rose
