How to be a Ghost Hunter
The ghost stories scattered throughout kept the book exciting, as the technical jargon would get a little tiresome if that was the only element of the book.
I was disappointed that more space and detail was not devoted to the actual equipment used in ghost-hunting. It would be interesting to know more about why certain pieces worked well in spirit investigations by explaining more of the scientific side of an investigation. Also, I would have liked to have seen more equipment discussed (or dismissed, and the reasons why) such as the EMF K2 meter and thermal imaging cameras.
As a person who leans heavily to the side of scientific investigations and totally dismisses the psychic "impression" aspect, I would be interested in hearing a physicist's take on what type of equipment might be utilized -- although, let's be honest, I doubt a reputable physicist would place his or her name and reputation beside such an endeavor.
Anyway, all in all, this is a good book written by a true believer. I highly recommend it.
