This was a well-researched book about the Duke Parapsychology Lab and the major players in parapsychology research at the time. Since I love good ghost stories--but don't believe in ghosts, I was intrigued by the topic of this book and wondered if it would help me believe in ghosts and such. That didn't happen, but it wasn't Stacy Horn's purpose in writing this book. I was surprised by the number of well-known people who consulted J.B. Rhine and the Duke Parapsycholoy Lab staff. I think I enjoyed this book most as a history of something that was part of the Duke campus. I also enjoyed hearing Stacy Horn talk about Unbelievable Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory at Duke earlier this year.
