A fascinating commonsense approach to the investigation of ghostly appearances by a world known ghost hunter. Includes step-by-step how-to’s. Aimed at amateur ghost hunters and people who worry that their house is haunted, Ghost Hunting covers every step of the investigative process, from the initial call and assessment, to techniques and technology, to actually getting rid of the ghost.


Ghost Hunting tells what apparitions, hauntings, and poltergeists really are. Ghostbuster Loyd Auerbach describes the many forms ghostly phenomena can take and the methods parapsychologists use to study them. He explains the technology used by ghost hunters and when equipment is and is not helpful. If you've encountered a ghost yourself, this book will show you how to investigate your experiences step-by-step and how to use the ghost busters methods to make your home "ghost-free".


All this and more, Ghost Hunting shows how to tell the difference between the normal and paranormal—and the just plain weird. It describes how to investigate other-worldly experiences by using the methods of professional ghost hunters to come to the right conclusions and determine how to bust—or befriend— the presence.
