Publisher's Summary

Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. Kripal team up on this unprecedented and intellectually vibrant new framing of inexplicable events and experiences.

Rather than merely document the anomalous, these authors - one the man who popularized alien abduction and the other a renowned scholar - deliver a fast-paced and exhilarating study of why the supernatural is neither fantasy nor fiction, but a vital and authentic aspect of life.

Their suggestion? That all kinds of "impossible" things, from extra-dimensional beings to bilocation to bumps in the night, are not impossible at all: rather, they are a part of our natural world. But this natural world is immeasurably more weird, more wonderful, and probably more populated than we have so far imagined with our current categories and cultures, which are what really make these things seem "impossible".

The Super Natural considers that the natural world is actually a "super natural world" - and all we have to do to see this is to change the lenses through which we are looking at it and the languages through which we are presently limiting it. In short: the extraordinary exists if we know how to look at and think about it.

What the Critics Say

"A cohesive reframing of the 'pantheon of the unknown'...A thought-provoking, intelligent reconceptualization of supernatural events." (Kirkus)

    Story
    "30 Minutes in, don't know if I'll make it."
    Would you try another book from Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. Kripal and/or Stephen Bel Davies?

    Probably not at this point.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. Kripal ? Why or why not?

    Probably not. It sounds like a dry droning rehash of theories you can get from any number of books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Don't particularly like the narrator. Meh.


    Any additional comments?

    At a loss for words right now. It is late and maybe I should have waited, but expectations were high (don't know why.) This likely shouldn't sway your decision to buy the book for yourself. But I wouldn't be surprised if others join me in some respects...Especially the narrator.
