Anomalistic Psychology Reviews


'A wonderful introduction to a fascinating topic. Clear, concise and comprehensive. It belongs on the bookshelf of everyone who is seriously curious about the human mind.' - Professor Richard Wiseman, School of Psychology, University of Hertfordshire, UK. 'Anomalistic Psychology is a thoughtful and careful introduction to this fascinating domain.' - Etzel Cardena, Thorsen Professor of Psychology, Lund University, Sweden and co-author of Varieties of Anomalous Experience and Altering Consciousness. 'Psychology is the disciplined study of experience and behavior; anomalistic psychology studies those that are rare, unexplained, or both. Holt, Simmonds-Moore, Luke and French have written an admirable account of this emerging field, one that pushes the boundaries of psychology without falling over the edge.' - Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, and Co-editor, Varieties of Anomalous Experience.
