What this book is not: It is not a collection of ghost stories to amuse yourself with, although there are quite a few stories in here. It is not a manual to enable you to become a "ghost hunter.

What this book is: It is a source of information on the various forms of sprit manifestations and how to distinguish between them.

Ms. Telesco has written on a wide variety of topics. This just adds one more category to her repertory.

The author lists various possibilities, both pro and con, for each of the various types of entities and hauntings. This is, essentially, a "fluff book." There is nothing new or startling in it. The stories are short and drawn from personal experiences and the experience of Tricia's acquaintances.

It was fun to read and did offer a few unusual facts and opinions. You might enjoy it as a curiosity, but if you are looking to learn much, this is a bit light.

It is an excellent of information for distinguishing between the various types of entities one is likely to encounter. For that, it is an excellent source. I might even go so far as to say that it would be an excellent book to pick up as a stocking stuffer for Yule, since that season is rapidly approaching.
