Product Details


Winner of the 2013 Robert Balles Prize for Critical Thinking!

“This is it—the definitive book on ghosts from a scientific perspective, written by the world’s foremost science-based ghost hunter. Nickell is the go-to guy for all things paranormal, and with this book he has once again asserted himself as a fair and careful investigator whose conclusions we can trust.”
—Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic magazine, monthly columnist for Scientific American, and author of The Believing Brain

“In [this] important new book Joe Nickell-the premier skeptical paranormal investigator alive today-explains his expert techniques while presenting various paranormal cases, looking at the actual evidence for the existence of such spirit beings. This is a book that everyone interested in ghostly evidence for the afterlife-believer and skeptic alike-will benefit from reading.”
—D. J. Grothe, president, James Randi Educational Foundation

“[Nickell is] the epitome of [a] skeptical investigator…coming to a subject without prejudgment but with an honest desire to find the truth….” 
—Kendrick Frazier, editor, Skeptical Inquirer

“[The Science of Ghosts] will find a home in science and new age collections alike, and considers the actual evidence surrounding psychic contacts with ‘the other side… a balanced assessment of the evidence for ghosts and hauntings.”
The Bookwatch

“Filled with case studies, this book will interest other fans of ghostly affairs academia.”
—Bookviews by Alan Caruba

“This is a well thought out, intelligently written book.”
