Thanks especially to the author's clear, friendly and engaging prose, but also due to the interesting social climate of the period covered and the subject matter itself, I found this book to be absolutely fascinating and very difficult to put down. This book should be of great interest to anyone fascinated by the history of serious, scientific research into the paranormal. Since the author does not "take sides" in this controversial subject but reports the events in a seemingly very objective manner, the book should prove to be quite enjoyable to both "sceptics" and "believers" alike.
It's well written in a fairly dispassionate journalist's style, and speckled with enough ghost stories to keep it entertaining, even if (as another reviewer points out) a lot of them had only a very tangential relationship to Duke. So I can't say I didn't enjoy reading this book. I don't know if there just wasn't in fact enough variety of research going on at the Rhine lab to fill a whole book without resorting to anecdotes that were pretty much dismissed by Rhine, and without much actual research on his part, but it felt superficial to me, like it glossed over the work going on at the actual lab and then padded out the rest of the book with more 'entertaining' ghost stories of the day.Read more ›
