Some very famous people were at one time reviled and ridiculed: Gregor Mendel, Albert Einstein, Galileo Galilei, Nicolaus Copernicus, William Harvey, Charles Darwin, Louis Pasteur, among many others. There are thousands more who though vindicated, never gained celebrity.

Exactly what I've been looking for. I always hear about studies on psi effects, but rarely get much of a peek at the hard data. This book has exactly that, in quantity. It's a dense read, therefore, and there are additional chapters about skepticism, metaphysics, implications, and the like.

Excellent overview of the highly advanced state of psi research and why there are still skeptics even though there are mountains of supporting evidence to psi.

This is an entirely convincing scientific explanation for the existence of psychic phenomena. Using scientific protocols and illustrating them with charts and graphs, Dean Radin explores, examines and tests all the avenues. Incredibly detailed in its approach and including nearly 50 pages of notes and references at the end as well as an extremely comprehensive index.
