In-depth analysis of each paranormal or transcendental experience would have benefited readers like me. Perhaps, author might have this one for another treatise.
(1) The "Contents" page doesn't actually show the contents of the book, just the end matter.
(2) The "Index" is not listed in the "Contents" page but is actually there at the end of the main body of the work but it is useless and it has no page numbers or hypertext links to link it back to the reference in the main body of the work so it was effectively just a useless list of words
(3) The (numerous) extended quotations in the main text are indented across three quarters of the screen making them appear as a narrow, 8 character wide column of type down the RH margin that was unreadable in that format
(4) The Dover Press advertising pages at the end of the hardcover book are mindlessly and pointlessly reproduced at the end of the ebook in a non-useable form
(5) hypertext links to the bibliography did not revert back to the place in the text from which the reader reached them, but instead take the reader to the first reference to that particular book in the text which may have been chapters away from where the reader came.
All in all a sloppy job and Dover should be forced to rectify it, or the Kindle edition should be withdrawn until they have.
This said, I have read the earlier edition of this book in hard copy and it is a very good analysis of it's subject, so I presume the second edition is as good if not better.
I recommend you by the hard copy, not Kindle.
The Psychology of Transcendence
(first edition: Prentice-Hall, 1980)
(New York: Dover Publications, Inc., 1990) 398 pages
(Library of Congress call number: BF1031.N43 1990)
A critical examination of paranormal experiences:
religious visions, ESP, psychokinesis; faith healing; auras; ghosts, mediums;
out-of-the-body experiences; astrology; UFOs; & the Bermuda Triangle.
A balanced account--attempting to find some value in these beliefs
while maintaining a scientific approach.
Because Neher presents each phenomenon briefly,
this might be a good place to start one's study of the paranormal.
There are nearly 900 references in the back,
showing that the author has done comprehensive research.
If you would like to find similar books critical of paranormal claims,
search the Internet for the following expression:
"OCCULTISM AND SCIENCE".
James Leonard Park, skeptic.
