Synopsis: Long among the foremost figures in parapsychological research, Dr. Rhine has at last provided a report on her over forty years of investigations into the apparently psychic experiences of an enormous variety of ordinary people. This magnificent book is the most comprehensive and summary study of anecdotal evidence for the existence of psychic phenomena ever published. No serious book collection on the subject, no matter how small, can lack this long-awaited title. The author discusses the numerous case histories in plain language. With the experience developed during a long career, she then is able to sort them into types an important advance for researchers and teachers noting such features as the form in which extrasensory information was perceived and the mental processes that seem to have been involved. Most of the chapters are devoted to specific phenomena, such as general ESP, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, precognition and contact with survivors. Dr. Rhine s findings bring to light many new human interconnections and offer a wealth of new directions for laboratory-based work. Results of her study were found to be entirely consistent with the findings of laboratory research. In addition, they give a fascinating picture of the psychic element in human nature that has been painted on no other canvas. An extensive list of references in appended. There are five tables and a thorough index."
