Product Details


“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

“[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.”
– City Book Review
