In a fairly objective assessment of the occult sciences, Berger covers a wide range of topics adequately if not comprehensively [in The Supernatural: From ESP to UFOs]. Separate chapters are devoted to such subjects as astrology, faith healing, parapsychology, witchcraft, and UFOs. Case histories and anecdotes add variety to the text, which includes some exposes and some unexplained, but documented phenomena. Not unlike other books on the supernatural, this does a workmanlike job of introduction. (p. 154)
