People who are interested in paranormal stories are going to love this book. Philip J.
Imbrogno has provided a really good source for information dating from WW2 to the present
about things that ordinary people question.
I like the chapter breaks and the scientific evidence with each chapter. The book is
not "dry" and all science, but a well written, enjoyable read for believers and non-believers
The book is a good read, one chapter at a time or all-inclusive if you just can’t put it
down. Author Philip J. Imbrogno has a grasp on how to get people to read, understand and
enjoy his work. I enjoyed the book on a scientific level, and brainiacs could surely learn
and grow from reading it.
Chapters include: "The New Science," "Out of Nowhere," "Psychic Powers: Reality, Hoax,
or Delusion?" In "Out of Nowhere," the factual origin of the saying "Raining Cats and Dogs"
is explained very simply: cats and dogs were not allowed in homes in sixteenth century England,
and therefore went up on roof tops with heavy straw to insulate them against cold and heavy rain.
The straw got wet and they would slip off and appear to be raining. The real mystery of the
chapter appears in seventeen of the seventy three cases collected, in which fish, toads and frogs
fall from the sky! There are many, many intriguing stories in this book, and one of the more
interesting and current revolves around the Mayan Calendar, which ends on December 21, 2012.
That date coincides with a solar maximum cycle that may indeed have a profound effect on Planet
Earth. This one story stands out amongst all the others because it remains a mystery of
something yet to come, and we will all just have to way and see what happens!
What I’ve given you here is just a small sample of the many files collected by author
Phillip J. Imbrogno. I wish I did have space in this review to list more of the stories for
you, but there are just too many; and frankly, I think readers will enjoy discovering each of
them on their own.
Wonderful book with obviously painstaking detail for taking the "Willing suspension of
disbelief" to another level. I recommend this book for all who are open to what else may be
