I do research on divination and am always fascinated to discover new ways human ingenuity has invented special powers. The fun of this book is to discover new concepts that amaze by their strangeness. An example,exosomatic psychopraxia. The are, however, two problems with the book. First, and most important, many of the defintions themselves have jargon and so are hard to understand. A little more detail about many of them would have helped also so it would be more useful as a reference. Second, many of the words are quite obscure, not being in general use in the field. Nothing wrong with including them but leaving some out would not have hurt.

Still an interesting and unique book.

I read Dr. Storm's review and I completely agree with him. I'm no doctor, but this book for the lay person such as myself, was very helpful. While for me, many of these terms if not most are over my head, there were quite a few in the book that I understood. I have just read A Paranormal Casebook, by Loyd Auerbach as well as An Introduction to Parapsychology, by Harvey J. Irwin and Caroline A. Watt. A Glossary of Terms used in Parapsychology has come in very handy for the above mentioned books.

Michael A. Thalbourne's "Glossary of Terms Used in Parapsychology" is a much-needed text for scholars studying parapsychology, or amateurs merely interested in finding the right definition for a paranormal word or term. Perhaps you've heard some unusual words or phrases on a television show like "Ghost Whisperer" or "Medium", or a movie like "The Gift" or "White Noise", and wondered what they meant. Now you can find out. Have you ever described someone as 'telekinetic' when you should have said 'telepathic'? Do you know someone who heard what they thought were paranormal voices, and thought it was 'clairvoyance' when, in fact, it was 'clairaudience'? Did you know that a 'Psychic Shuffle' is not a favourite dance of mediums, but a technique for paranormally sorting a deck of cards into a pre-determined order?

Thalbourne's "Glossary" is extremely useful when you need an exact meaning, but it is one of those texts that work well just browsing through for fun. It is a constant source of new material - even I found many unfamiliar terms like IPA ('Incorporeal Personal Agency') and PQ ('Psi Quotient'), and I have been a practicing parapsychologist for many years now! You'll find every parapsychological word and term and its definition that you are ever likely to need or use in this Glossary, and more, from 'Absent Healing' to 'Zener cards'. This text is a must for parapsychology students or anyone interested in the paranormal.
