From the jacket: "There is no other book that so admirably sums up and so intelligently discusses the whole question of supernatural apparitions. Taillepied deals with such points as the Theophanies of the Old Testament, the Witch of Endor, haunted houses and how they may be cleared, somnambulism, poltergeists, how a man must conduct himself if he encounter a ghost. This is a book no Spiritualist can afford to neglect...."
