The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal by Judith Joyce

The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal by Judith Joyce is a go-to guide for those interested in a broad range of paranormal subjects. If this is an area that interests you, this is an excellent book to enjoy on a dark and stormy night.

Book Description
Stranded motorists on a lonesome road are rescued by angels. The phone rings with a call from beyond the grave. A blood-sucking predator is sighted again in the south of Texas. The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal is your gateway into the world beyond the known. Covering topics from cryptids to psychics, telekinesis to telepathy, this concise handbook will guide you through the eerie, the undeniable, and the strange world of the paranormal.

Once upon a time, events like ghost sightings were commonplace. Parlors were redecorated to accommodate séance rituals, and ghost stories poured from the culture. Psychic occurrences and abilities might have been feared and disliked, but they were accepted as a normal part of life. Today, we are experiencing a resurgence of all things paranormal--in our books, our movies, on the internet, in the way we look at life. Join paranormal investigator and psychic Judith Joyce as she delves into this world with haunting detail and illuminating clarity. Joyce touches on all of the major aspects of paranormal phenomena, and more. Do you have telepathic powers? Can the Ouija board really speak from the Other Side? Use this paranormal primer to find out.” – The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal

My Thoughts
The Weiser Field Guide to the Paranormal is a well written guide to just about everything you would want to read about on the paranormal. Judith Joyce does an excellent job covering large range of topics to give a broad spectrum of the paranormal field. Nothing is covered too extensively, which works fine for this type of a book. If there is something that really interests you, there are other books available on just that topic that you can read more about the specific subject.

I’ve been reading and researching the paranormal for over ten years, and even I found new topics in this book to read and do further research on. This is a superb book that will hopefully entice you to also want to read more about the subjects that you find interesting. Be careful with that though, because you might want to learn more about everything! I highly recommend this book to everyone curious about the paranormal field too.

I like reading about all types of it, just nothing too in depth. This is the type I like, thanks!
