The authors make a case for Zozo et al having been around for far longer than most paranormal researchers believe. Although personal experiences with the Z-entities were documented by author Darren Evans on his website, it wasn't until he appeared on an episode of "Ghost Adventures" gained the same level of popularity as, say, Slenderman.
With Zozo now firmly entrenched in the public consciousness, reports of him/her/it breaking through to take over Ouija Board sessions became more common, as did the negative side-effects; Evans and Guiley claim that encounters with the Z-entities are often accompanied by terrible nightmares, runs of ill-health and very bad luck, physical violence, and even sexual assault. By all accounts, this is not a being that one would wish to come into contact with.
The first half of the book detail Evans' personal experiences with Zozo, beginning with his discovery of a mysterious old Ouija Board beneath his house. The second discusses the nature of Zozo and co in greater detail, offering a number of theories regarding the nature of its existence, and picking out some potential Zozo sightings throughout history. Some are convincing and bear further investigations, whereas others (e.g. The UFO connection) seem a little far-fetched.
If you aren't a believer in discarnate entities, then this book won't convert you, though it might be read and enjoyed as a series of creepy stories. If you are, on the other hand, then it may just make you operate with more caution around Ouija Boards and spirit boxes...because if the authors are right, then playing with Zozo means that you could quite easily be playing with fire...
I did enjoy the skepticism at the end and different points of view for the reader to consider as well.
