A Pulitzer Prize-winning author tells the amazing story of William James' quest for empirical evidence of the spirit world. What if a world-renowned professor of psychology at Harvard University, acclaimed as one of the leading intellects of the time, suddenly announced that he believed in ghosts? At the close of the nineteenth century, Dr. William James, a founder of the American Psychological Association, did just that. James joined with two other brilliant thinkers to form the American Society for Psychical Research. This riveting book is about their investigations of ghost stories-and their courage and conviction to study science with an open mind.

"In a scientific examination of unscientific events, the author documents the search for explanations to mysteries such as moving tables, Ouija boards, slate writing, and haunted houses. Blum exposes some of the trickery and leaves other phenomena unexplained. As far as valuable science, listeners will learn that ether is "a cosmic cream that oozes through space." Narrator George Wilson's deep voice speaks without haste, and he finds no difficult or foreign vocabulary to deal with. He takes the spiritual sessions seriously but creates some fun by using his large repertoire of voices for quotes from the famous and infamous characters who have opinions on this subject. J.A.H.
