Reviewed by The Editors on June 1, 2009
From yet another NPR correspondent comes a thorough and fascinating exploration of scientific investigations into ghosts, poltergeists, telepathy, and other paranormal phenomena. Stacy Horn begins with the creation of the Duke Parapsychology Lab at Duke University and follows its researchers through their years of work. Horn ties in multiple branches of science, including quantum theory, cosmology, and magnetic fields, while showing the dedication of rigorous scientists whose work is not easily accepted.
