Natural Magic by David Carroll

A great book explaining magic without the gods/goddesses, snotty, secret, nerd pretense. Just straight forward this-is-how-it-is sort of writing and surprisingly easy to read. Beware of the scary-ass photo in the Mesmerism section; its of an old, vau...more

Kind of a stupid book about a journalist trying to find the truth behind ghosts. The book succeeds however in creeping you out with stories of ghosts doing their thing. The author is too "look-at-these-crazy-ghost-hunters" and often goes into persona...more
