Parapsychology in General
Record Type: Review   ID: 1213

The Ashby Guidebook for Study of the Paranormal (rev. ed.).

Ashby, Robert H. (Frank C. Tribbe, Ed.).

 This paperback serves a fivefold purpose. It provides an introduction to psychical research that emphasizes opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. It serves as a handbook for individuals and groups on how to develop psi abilities and how to test or investigate them in others. It has annotated bibliographiesone aimed at beginners and one at more advanced students (only books are cited). It provides a directory of organizations, including research facilities, foundations, libraries, journals, and bookstores in the United States and the United Kingdom. It has a biographical dictionary of some of the major figures of parapsychology past and present. Because it attempts so much, the Guidebook is necessarily limited to only the most important (and the best of the popular) information sources, but for a first glimpse it is a useful guide for beginners, and it is likely to whet the appetite for more. It is handicapped by the lack of an index. Tribbe has done an excellent job of updating and enlarging this edition.
