"A fantastic resource for anyone interested in learning more about anomalous experiences." - Caroline Watt, Senior Lecturer, Koestler Parapsychology Unit, University of Edinburgh, UK
"Christopher French and Anna Stone have written a balanced, authoritative, and reader-friendly guide about unusual but poorly understood psychological phenomena. There is nothing quite like it in the field." - Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, USA, and co-author, "Demystifying Shamans and their World"
"Lots of people believe they have had strange experiences, such as alien abduction or seeing heaven when near death. French and stone, in this meticulously researched and beautifully written book, help us understand why. "Anomalistic Psychology" is a masterful, one-of-a-kind book that will interest anyone who cares about the sometimes seemingly bizarre workings of the human mind." - Elizabeth F. Loftus, PhD, Distinguished Professor, University of California, Irvine, USA, Past President of the Association for Psychological Science, and author of "Eyewitness Testimony"
"Anomalistic Psychology provides an excellent introduction to this topic. The style is engaging, informative and easy to read, without any loss of depth or critical evaluation. I think that students will find it an engaging and thoughtful book, and because it contains relevant examples drawn from current cultural topics, they will find it accessible and entertaining. I will certainly recommend this text to the students on my Parapsychology course." - Nick Neave, Reader in the Department of Psychology, Northumbria University, UK
"Anomalistic psychology tries to explain bizzare and/or paranormal experiences and beliefs. A listing of these would be endless, but among those that French and Stone consider are alien abduction, extrasensory perception, near-death experiences, and past-life memories." - Choiceshow more
