I enjoyed this book overall, though it does seem that ghosts tend to behave in a similar fashion to each other.

Clearly, he has a passion for his subject, and is eager to share his knowledge and expertise with anyone who is interested.

Terrible! A terrible, terrible book! I’ll admit, the subject doesn’t really strike me as that interesting anyway, but this guy’s writing is TERRIBLE. I don’t even know what else to say about it.
