Lynne Kelly's Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal is a lovely book. It covers a wide range of paranormal mythconceptions in an entertaining and comprehensive way. The fascinating topics include the Bermuda Triangle, UFOs, Astrology, Nostradamus and Spoon Bending. The Universe around us is magnificent enough to fill us with awe and wonder - and this book shows us that we don't have to rely on second-rate re-hashed myths.'..Karl Kruszelnicki, Julius Sumner Miller Fellow, University of Sydney..We find ourselves in a society which erroneously believes it has undergone an Enlightenment, but has only experienced a certain degree of Brightening. Lynne Kelly's informative book should never have been needed, but obviously is. Telling people what they already know - that there is no Tooth Fairy, magic is a subject for children's story books and immortality, ESP and astral projection belong in fantasy stories - is made a more acceptable and communicable message via this book. Kudos and applause to the author. Let's have more '..James Randi, President, James Randi Educational Foundation, www.randi.org..Can a human being really burst spontaneously into flames? Just how deadly is the Bermuda Triangle? And what's the real story behind all those alien abductions?..The answers to these and many more questions are within these covers. Guaranteed to liven up any dinner party, The Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal offers explanations for many phenomena which appear to defy known science. ..Speaking directly to the reader, and always with respect for those who believe, Lynne Kelly presents the facts about the paranormal. Did you know that you too can bend spoons and read minds? This book will show you how.
