Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new title combines and updates two classic books ("Phenomena" and "Living Wonders") by the same authors. The original subjects of mysterious phenomena (including poltergeists, showers of objects and spontaneous human combustion) and crypto-zoology (including living ape men, the Loch Ness monster and dinosaurs in the Congo) has been joined by nine new sections covering subjects as diverse as vampires, crop circles and alien abductions. Packed with black and white photos and packaged in our large reference format, The Rough Guide to Unexplained Phenomena is sure to become a seminal, cult classic.

Synopsis:

As the third millennium begins it is acknowledged that many things are as yet unknown and unexplained about the world in which we live. This exploration of the unexplained treads a Fortean path between dogmatic scientists & credulous believers.

Synopsis:

The Rough Guide to Unexplained Phenomena is an exploration of the zone that lies between the known and the unknown, a shadowy territory thats home to the lake monsters, combusting people, teleporting frogs and man-eating trees. Taking a Fortean path between dogmatic scientists and credulous believers, the authors trace tales of wonder back to their sources, drawing from a huge archive of observations, opinions and discussions. This updated second edition boasts new illustrations and plenty of intriguing new sections from near death experiences to ghosts, haunted houses and mysterious mass deaths. There are many things which are not yet known or understood about our world - as this guide shows there are many riddles to solve and wonders to experience.
