    One thought on “The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Paranormal”

    1. I didn't read all of this book, but rather skimmed through it while a passenger on a drive.The biggest problems with it: Syncretism. It doesn't openly adopt one specific view on the paranormal but rather tries to accept and even unify the differing beliefs of many groups. Or, more accurately, it reads the beliefs of different groups through the lens of what is probably something like neopaganism. For example, it addresses Catholic practices that relate to the supernatural, but will also deviate [...]

    2. This book gives you a very good summary of just about everything in the paranormal world. There is a lot of good info and plenty of places where he injects his personal comments and gives you a good laugh. Nothing too deep, just a good intro to the field and a way to "kick off" your reading in whatever aspect you're the most fascinated by.

    3. Those looking for bite-sized frights will find them aplenty in this book. Originally intended for bedside reading, with chapter-by-chapter dips each night, I ended up finishing it in a little less than a day.Paranormal is more or less a sampler of all things unexplained, but what it offers is quite sumptuous; and it is told in an eloquent, direct way that is chilling, but the humorous asides come as a welcome relief. Essentially, it serves as a springboard to whatever areas of the paranormal tak [...]

    4. It could have used more detail and explanation in the sections on Vampires (no mention of Mercy Brown or Elizabeth Báthory, and the only fictional vampire mentioned is Dracula [they mention the movie Nosferatu, but never the name of the vampire – Count Orloc. Still since the movie was an unauthorized version of Dracula I stand by the fact they only mentioned Dracula]! Frankly that's just sad. Add in a total lack of non-European vampires. Sad does not begin to cover it.) and Shape-shifters; an [...]

    5. See more of my reviews at Bettering Me Up.2.5 stars. I was expecting more from this, but it mostly consisted of one or two short paragraphs on each subject. I rounded up to three stars because I *did* learn something new, even if it wasn't very thorough.

    6. I didn't read the sections on monsters. I was mainly interested in the sections on spirits and demons. It definitely gave a good starting point for learning more about this subject. My main concern is learning to continue with spirit communication without having a problem with troublesome demons. This book was somewhat useful in this regard.

    7. This book was a great book. I learned about paranormal subjects and things in here that I never even heard of. This has got to be one of my favorite books on the paranormal.
