From the ancient world to the present day, anomalous experiences - such as apparitions, premonitions, out-of-body and near-death experiences - provide stories that continue to mystify and intrigue. In this lively introduction, the authors investigate what these stories signify, and why some people turn to the paranormal for explanation. From defining anomalous experiences to examining the psychological models and methods that have been used to explain them, this text will help open up these strange tales to analysis. Whatever your level of study, this introduction will guide you through the key areas of this fascinating subject.

Review:

'A wonderful introduction to a fascinating topic. Clear, concise and comprehensive. It belongs on the bookshelf of everyone who is seriously curious about the human mind.' - Professor Richard Wiseman, School of Psychology, University of Hertfordshire, UK. 'Anomalistic Psychology is a thoughtful and careful introduction to this fascinating domain.' - Etzel Cardena, Thorsen Professor of Psychology, Lund University, Sweden and co-author of Varieties of Anomalous Experience and Altering Consciousness. 'Psychology is the disciplined study of experience and behavior; anomalistic psychology studies those that are rare, unexplained, or both. Holt, Simmonds-Moore, Luke and French have written an admirable account of this emerging field, one that pushes the boundaries of psychology without falling over the edge.' - Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, and Co-editor, Varieties of Anomalous Experience.
