I am a voracious reader with numerous interests and this book seemed to be a good bargain. When I wrote that it is a "very basic book" I did not mean it was not encyclopedic in scope. Indeed, this large (8 by 11 size) hardback book covers an enormous amount of fascinating material. None of the topics are covered in depth, but rather gives a very brief overview of each section. In this respect, it only provides more of an introduction to each topic and you will have to search further to obtain further knowledge on each topic.

Some of the topics covered in the ten sections include the following: (1) Hauntings: Houses, Castles, and Ghosts on the battlefield, road and at sea. (2) The Power of the mind explores the sixth sense, psychic detectives, dream, premonitions and other topics. (3) Superstitions and symbols are explained such as fear of numbers, the power of names, curses and jinxes, the lore of cats and other related material. (4) Natural Phenomena is covered such as fire, light, sound and movement. (5) Strange creatures include water and land monsters are explained. Section 6 covers disappearances. Ancient mysteries are covered in section 7. Lost Lands and secrets are explored in section 8. Section 9 is about lines and labyrinths. The final section covers phenomena such as UFOs.

In conclusion, this is an interesting book but it is probably more for children rather than adults.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Season of the Warrior: A poetic tribute to warriors)

This was a gift and the receiver enjoyed it very much. If one is looking to purchase a gift for someone who enjoys 'strange things', this is the one to buy.
