In his introduction, Roy Bainton explains he’s been interested in Unexplained Phenomena since he was 13, and the amount of detail in this book reflects this. It’s a difficult book to review, so it’s probably easier if I outline what’s covered.
There are eight sections, and each offers a guide to the various phenomena – obviously there are no real answers or conclusions, as most remain, well, unexplained, but it’s a great place to start exploring this area. If you find a particular phenomena which interests you, Roy provides links to websites, and a bibliography.
This is one of those great books to have on your coffee table or besides your bed, to dip in and out of. Although saying that, I did find myself fascinated by certain sections, and ended up reading for more than the length of a coffee!
The eight sections are as follows:
The Age of Unreason
Hot Chestnuts – UFOs
Beyond The Veil
Panic and Paranoia
Combining the Fringe
