Thought provoking and well-written.

Whether you are a skeptic or a believer, this book is a great find for anyone interested in a study of the paranormal and occult. The book written by skeptics, but I got the impression throughout the book that many of the authors would actually love to be proven wrong! The articles in the book give the reader tools to analyze in a scientific, logical and rational way any paranormal claim. Each article is well-written and thought-provoking. My personal opinion is that it is possible for things to exist outside of the ability of science to explain or categorize. If you agree, you will probably find that you often disagree with articles in this book. But disagree or not, it is intelligent and though-provoking and a must-read for anyone who is seriously interested in the study of the paranormal and occult. This book will definitely make you think, and that's ALWAYS a good thing. I recommend reading the book with a friend or partner so you will have someone with whom you may discuss the ideas presented.

A perfect guide to skepticism!

This is an excellent book for those of you who aren't fooled by wild paranormal schemes. Great authors, great essays. I especially like the part about fire-walking, channeling, and critical thinking.

Great skeptical scientific and fair viewpoints of paranormal

The hundredth monkey is a collection of essays taken primarily from the Skeptical Observer magazine and directly takes on the issues of ESP (PSI), astrology, UFOs and other items associated with the paranormal. Very well written -- I especially liked the investigations into ESP and astrology. Perfect starter book for anyone trying to understand the arguments against the paranormal
