Unbelievable: Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory by Stacy Horn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
More than kind of *amazing*.
I came across this because of a piece on Atlas Obscura about the Rhine's and their work.... which 1) pointed me towards this book and 2) my library had a Kindle edition and I burned through it.
This book has everything - both the quixotic quest of the Rhines, ghost stories, poltergeists (even the case that inspired the Exorcist) and much more. On top of that, Albert Einstein, Upton Sinclair, Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley and more luminaries put in appearances. A good read, and kind of mind-blowing.
