From the Inside Flap:

Despite all the answers that conventional science can provide, there remains certain phenomena for which no explanation can yet be found outside the occult. For this reason exploration of the occult and paranormal provides endless fascination.

Here, for the first time within the covers of one book, is an up-to-date survey of all the different aspects of this complex and intriguing subject, including an entire chapter on the relationship between sex and psychic phenomena, a subject on which, until recently, there has been an unwillingness to talk.

In the light of twenty-five years of experience in all aspects of psychical research and a deep and abiding interest in the occult, Mr Underwood seeks to answer a variety of questions dealing with astrology, graphology, palmistry, character-divination from the Tarot cards, phrenology, clairvoyance, and telepathy.

He examines, among many other topics, the kind of people who act as mediums, what really happens at haunted houses and how such phenomena should be investigated, the meaning of dreams, and the history and present practice of Druids, Witches, and those who pursue Black Magin. Actual case histories of hauntings and experiments that the author himself has carried out are recorded in detail.

The book includes comprehensive lists of suggested further reading and a number of explanatory illustrations. Throughout, Mr Underwood encourages people to explore and investigate with honesty and integrity, towards a greater understanding of the supernormal and of the tremendous untapped forces within us.

Peter Underwood, a member of the Society for Psychical Research, and since 1960 President and Chairman of the Ghost Club, examines these and similar mysteries in the light of twenty-five years of practical experience.
