A short extract from 'Ghosthunting for the Sensible Investigator, second edition'. Why do modern investigators often insist on working in total darkness, when no reported ghost has ever been seen this way? There is an answer, but you might not like it.
Are you a ghost hunter or a gadget collector? Do you really want to find proof of life after death, or do you just want to spend money on electronics? This book shows what you really need to start up as a ghosthunter. Not too much equipment, but a lot of common sense, persistence and a sensible approach to the investigation of the paranormal.
Modern 'investigations' seem designed to show off new gadgetry rather than to obtain any form of actual data.
This second edition consists of a collection of essays by an author infuriated by the abandonment of even the most basic of research principles and by the ridiculous insistence that
buying more unproven gadgetry will somehow enhance success.
