[The Supernatural; From ESP to UFOs] is a book that will be of little use to the serious reader of any age. Loose and inaccurate, it lumps together a smattering of scientific research in parapsychology (most of which is behind the times) with astrology, witchcraft, spiritualism and UFOs. Even the effort at being impartial comes off poorly. In hit-and-run fashion, the author selects dramatic, rather than evidential, material and then cites critics and skeptics in a way that whitewashes the initial impact. Nowhere is there a valid sifting out of the real from the spurious. (p. 142)
