KIRKUS REVIEW

Psi-ence fiction Yes, and No, and this account of various phases of paranormal activity has an alternating authorship. Some, most of it, is the result of some articles Norma Lee Browning wrote for the Chicago Sunday Tribune after making a world tour of other worldly phenomena. Mr. Stone (Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude) contributes less. Norma Lee viewed and interviewed Russia's Professor Vasiliev, who has an extensive ""mental radio"" laboratory; nomadic aborigines in the Australian outback; Fuji's firewalkers; a few sensitives - some with well-known names-Ford and Croiset; and she also reports in on yoga, ghosthunting, ouija directional signals, while Mr. Stone concludes with something about Lourdes, cybernetics, telepathy, and the physiological activities of the brain. The presentation is strictly popular, but judgments are careful; i.e. seeing is not believing. Our divining rod would indicate that a general readership may materialize, among those not exposed to the more serious literature in the field.
