First of all, I'm very much a skeptic.

I think the author did a great job of exploring various unexplained phenomena such as remote viewing, UFOs, ghosts, etc. What I liked best was how he showed that we are usually dealing with extremists on both sides of these issues: both the believers and the skeptics. It's easy to discount blind faith, but we should also take a critical look at the skeptics who often disregard evidence and refuse to accept that there are things we just don't understand.

To me, it's absurd to assume that we have everything figured out at this point in human history. Admitting that there are things we don't understand doesn't mean we have to believe in God or aliens or magic or anything else. It just means we don't know--yet.

The chapters on lucid dreaming were especially interesting.
