SOME SAY THIS BOOK IS CONTROVERSIAL Why? Because children shouldn't be included in paranormal investigation Because Ghost Hunting isn't a family outing Because there shouldn't be mini-Ghost Hunters This book is different from others because in addition to giving tips, training and inspiration to experienced investigators, it promotes the idea that Family includes Children. David Bryan Lawrence is a coach and in The Family Guide to Ghost Hunting has combined this skill with history, technique and good humor to help you build your own paranormal team. Other readers called this book a "Paranormal Bible," Some have labeled it the "Philosophy of Paranormal Investigation." It is not simply a technical manual but combines case studies with actual technique to elevate the overall learning process. In other words, it creates a story that all ages will find entertaining enough to have fun while they learn If you are interested in how to determine whether your family and children are ready for paranormal investigation, the tests and information are here.
