Publisher's Summary

Professor Richard Wiseman is clear about one thing: paranormal phenomena don't exist. But in the same way that the science of space travel transforms our everyday lives, so research into telepathy, fortune-telling and out of body experiences produces remarkable insights into our brains, behaviour and beliefs.

Paranormality embarks on a wild ghost chase into this new science of the supernatural and is packed with activities that allow you to experience the impossible. So throw away your crystals, ditch your lucky charms and cancel your subscription to Reincarnation Weekly. It is time to discover the real secrets of the paranormal.

Learn how to control your dreams and leave your body behind. Convince complete strangers that you know all about them. Unleash the power of your unconscious mind.

great insight into what one believes is paranormal

very eye opening and a relief for all of us to know really how our minds work and why we (the majority) believe in ghosts and stuff like that. so cool

Read This

Didn’t want to stop. This book should be required reading. Surprisingly humorous in parts. Gives me a lot of fun trivia to share with friends.

I am a professional life path advisor psychic!

as for the book in the narrator I found it to be quite interesting. If you are looking to try to figure out what's real and what's not real please understand it's what's in your mind and your heart. in this book he says fake psychics so he must believe in something. he never talks about religion or spirituality and believing in a higher power. I am real and I am comfortable with it!

Interesting, easy listen

This covers some interesting subjects, such as 'mind reading' and telepathy, as well as looking at out of body experiences. It's a good insight into our own brains can trick us, as well as some of the tricks used by the people themselves. It's a light listen, easy to understand.

An excellent introduction to the subject

Very useful for refuting the pervasive woo of paranormal enthusiasts. I may have to buy the hardcopy as a reference...

Great listen

What made the experience of listening to Paranormality the most enjoyable?

Learning lots of new stuff with Wiseman's wonderfully relaxed writing style making the learning enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Paranormality?

The 'cold reading' techniques used by Psychics

My stars told me psychics were fake

If you could sum up Paranormality in three words, what would they be?

Fun, Informative, Clever

Would you listen to another book narrated by Peter Noble?

Overall I liked Peter's narration but he should leave doing the accents for a different type of book. I was a little disappointed that Professor Wiseman did not do it himself as on TV & Youtube he communicates his material really well.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Standard dismal scenarios

Thought, maybe incorrectly, this was going to look at the psychology of the minds of those that accept psychic phenomenon. Turned out to be a Wikipedia level look at these phenomenon with hardly anything new added. Felt like he had a book writing contract to fill and this was it. Ironic really seeing as this book delights in exposing charlatans. Not sure I would bother listening to any more of Richards books.

easy listening

The narrator seems intense as though something vital is about to be imparted, it isn't. I found I could have this book on whilst I tidied around the house, clear enunciation and steady volume. I suspect the book to be very good for those it can engage. I wonder if there exists any ology in this collection of quite engaging talks.
