Sep 08, 2009 Thomas rated it really liked it
Engaging, thorough story of the Spiritualist movement essentially beginning with the Fox sisters and continuing through Houdini and a bit beyond.

I loved it, but -- my God, is it DRY! It also assumes a certain basic knowledge of some of the background of Spiritualism and the historic milieu in general. But it's still a very well-done, thoroughly referenced book and a great survey.
