Synopses & Reviews
In the rich fabric of daily experience peculiar chinks may occur. They give us pause to reflect on the world and how we relate to it. This revised edition of a timeless classic will help you to see the reality of anomalous experience as part of your own psychological tapestry. Dr. Reed shows how the mind's organizational capability and its information processing set the stage for strange happenings. Understanding the choices you make - albeit unconsciously - when perceiving the world serves to explain both the usual and the unusual, without recourse to the supernatural.
The revised edition of this classic helps readers understand many oddities -- an idea on the "tip of the tongue", the feeling of deja vu, or such severe disruptions as delusions and other forms of mental illness -- without recourse to supernatural explanations.
