From Library Journal:

The Wilsons provide some 34 chapters on historical and contemporary mysteries, including ancient astronauts, fairies, sea monsters, telepathics, and vampires. Each chapter presents its puzzle, purports to examine the evidence, and then comes down firmly on the side of the paranormal, the bizarre, or the crackpot. Apparently, the Wilsons will believe anything anyone tells them, provided the person is not a scientist (hidebound), a skeptic (lazy-minded), or an expert (obstinate). In the introduction, Colin Wilson claims to have been trained as a scientist; he then spends the next 300 pages demonstrating his ignorance of scientific methodology. To him, evidence is valid if it seems right. Readers seeking titillation rather than knowledge will enjoy this book.
