Publisher Comments:

It's easy to say ghosts exist or don't exist. Anyone can do that. Trying to figure out the why or what is a different story. Paranormal investigator Zak Bagans, host of the popular Travel Channel series andlt;iandgt;Ghost Adventuresandlt;/iandgt;, pulls from his years of experience with paranormal activities and unexplained phenomena to provide an evenhanded look at a divisive subject. In andlt;iandgt;Dark Worldandlt;/iandgt;, regardless of whether you believe in the afterlife or not, Zak does his best to find and share answers to the phenomena that people encounter. He wants you to experience a haunting through his eyes: to feel what it's like to be scared, freaked out, pushed, cold, sluggish, whispered-at and touched by an ethereal being or attacked by a demonic spirit. But beyond simply experiencing these events, Zak is looking for the reasons behind them, searching for answers to the unanswered questions. Addressing all the major issues and theories of the field in an impartial way, andlt;iandgt;Dark Worldandlt;/iandgt; is a must read for paranormal enthusiasts, those who don't believe and anyone who's ever wondered about things that go bump in the night.

About the Author

andlt;bandgt;Zak Bagansandlt;/bandgt; never believed in ghosts until he came face to face with one during a terrifying incident in a Michigan apartment. Not the passive type, Zak set out to learn more about the paranormal. In 2004 he produced an award-winning documentary film that changed his life and the lives of many others when he captured one of the most shocking pieces of paranormal evidence ever. Now the host of two top-rated paranormal television shows, Bagans has conducted hundreds of investigations into the unknown, becoming intimately familiar with the places ordinary people will not go.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;bandgt;Kelly Criggerandlt;/bandgt; is not a paranormal investigator, but has been intrigued by the paranormal for many years and has conducted several investigations alongside Zak. He is the author of three books, including andlt;iandgt;Title Shotandlt;/iandgt;, and over two hundred internet and print articles. Crigger retired from the US Army in 2011 after 24 years in uniform.

Zak Bagans is passionate for paranormal investigations. He is an experienced advocate of scientific inquiry, in developed theories for advancement with paranormal research.

Digital recorders capture paranormal voices at above and below frequencies, than human ears can detect. Paranormal spirits composed of weak energy manifest into sound or sight with a contact having a greater amount of energy that they can borrow or take altogether. This is key to understanding the paranormal. Some examples of energy are electronic equipment, lights, cameras, batteries, cars, EMF pumps, water and human beings.

The Law of Energy Conservation, states energy can neither be created nor destroyed in a closed system. With this law all energy in the universe has been made, and our physical bodies are individual containers of personal energy. When the body dies energy is released back into the universe. It is the way air is released back into the atmosphere when a balloon pops.

With paranormal manifestation; almost always there is an unmistakable transfer of energy, from a known source to an unknown receiver. Some examples of transfer are a complete drain on equipment or simply a flickering light.

Certain areas can become imprinted with severe energy (as in the potter’s wheel heard as analyzed years later in pottery.) In residual areas activity can be heard as one form of recorded communication. Other areas respond during an investigation.

Many active paranormal places are mentioned and some are favorites. Static night vision cameras are used, along with EMF detectors in investigations to capture paranormal events, and contact responses. Orbs, intelligent haunting's and more are documented in this well written book. Quantum physics regards time in the universe as a series of branched events. I own a copy of this book and recommend it to those interested.

Full Disclosure: I am a huge fan of the show, I own all the dvds. I also have had my own experiences and am a believer in the Paranormal.

I really enjoyed this book, what I liked about it is that Zak Bagans, used simple terms, he wrote the book in a way that a person who isn't a paranormal investigator and has never looked into the paranormal beyond watching the show can understand what he's talking about.

The book, does deal with some of Zak Bagans' own experiences, but he also goes into the equipment and his own views on the world of the Paranormal. I found it really interesting, one of things I liked the most was his thought and his hope of there one day being a database where all the evidence of all the paranormal investigators and the amateurs that has been caught is in one central place. That would be incredible! I hope that happens!

The book also gave people who are friends of his have a spot to share their hopes for the future of the field. The book was very enlightening. The way it was written had a feel of a person sitting across the table from the reader and speaking rather then reading. That was really cool how that came across. I never got the feel either that Bagans was trying to "lord his knowledge" over the reader, a lot of times informational types of books can have that feel, but this one never did.

I also liked being able to get glimpses of the investigations in a more "in depth" look, we get to hear a little more about what he experienced then we saw on the show.

I do hope that Zak Bagans writes more in the future, I would love to read more books that he writes and to learn more about the field.

If you are a fan of the show or if you are a believer or even if you aren't a believer I would say pick up the book and give it a read, if you're not a believer, pick it up with an open mind and see what Zak Bagans has to say.

I recently became obsessed with Ghost Adventures and decided that I should read Zak's book because, despite being in a bit of a reading drought where nothing appealed, I always at least TRY to pick up new books. I wasn't disappointed; this one held my interest so well that I almost finished it in one sitting! It was funny, and interesting, and very well written!
