This book deeply, truly, madly SUCKS! One from the hard-core gee-whiz credulous school of writing on the supernatural. The author believes it all, from Uri Geller’s psychic powers (giggle) to Roswell (scream). It comes wrapped in a thick coating of earnest pseudo-science, the piling on of unnecessarily precise mundane facts to shore up the implausible (At 2.37pm on the afternoon of Thursday 19 November, 1.7 miles north of Jake’s gas station etc etc….) and the academic patina of cross–references and footnotes.

According to the blurb, Watts “explores the theory of a universal ‘superhighway’ of communication channels that allows minds to communicate without using any of the five senses.” Well, he has certainly had a lot of practice not using his!

I wondered whether I should release this one at all, but suffering should be shared. If you find it, keep your scepticism handy and don’t inhale. ( )
