Ghosthunting for the Sensible Investigator, second edition
In the five years since the first edition there has been no progress at all in research into ghosts and related phenomena. In fact, it appears that ghosthunting is now more about reality TV and entertainment than about any serious research.
Modern 'investigations' seem designed to show off new gadgetry rather than to obtain any form of actual data.
This second edition consists of a collection of essays by an author infuriated by the abandonment of even the most basic of research principles and the ridiculous insistence that buying more unproven gadgetry will somehow enhance success.
You will not agree with everything in this book. It is not here to be agreed with. It is here to start you thinking like an investigator rather than a TV presenter.
Most of all, it is here to save you money.
Ghosthunting for the Sensible Investigator, first edition
Are you a ghost hunter or a gadget collector? Do you really want to find proof of life after death, or do you just want to spend money on electronics?
This book shows what you really need to start up as a ghosthunter. Not too much equipment, but a lot of common sense, persistence and a sensible approach to the investigation of the paranormal.
Don't blow your budget on unneccessary equipment, don't waste night after night in pointless locations. Read this first. Then lose the gadgets, and find the ghosts.
