Note that I am putting this on the 'non-fiction' shelf and not the 'ghost sightings' shelf, because by and large this is an eclectic history book, with a smattering of mentions of ghosts. I think the book is better in the second half with interesting articles on Julia Child, MIT pranks, and the Irish migration.
