Very down to earth (strangely enough) and informative, thought-provoking and intelligently written.

An inside view of the Ghost Adventures Crew, started to now Oct. 3 2012
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was just a terrific read about Nick and his fellow Ghost Adventures Crew and how they got started. Soon as it arrived, could not put it down. Nick explained in more detail how he got into his search of the paranormal, what he's gone through and how it has affected him.

A must read for any fan of the Ghost Adventures show, or just into the paranormal stuff.

Enjoyed reading how they get along on those long road trips, and more about the places they have visited that don't make it to the show. It was great to get that behind-the-scenes view of what his life has been like from such an early age, to getting into film, meeting the guys, to where he is now.

Must Read Oct. 6 2012
By sarahann_07 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was amazing! I read it in a little over two hours. It was great to discover how Ghost Adventures got its start from Nick's perspective. So much of the show seems to come from Zak's point of view, and it was great to see it all through Nick's eyes. I also loved the behind the scenes stories that never made it to the show. Learning about how much work they all put into creating Ghost Adventures gave me a whole new look at my favorite show. This book is a must read for any Ghost Adventures fan!

Two Seconds! Oct. 13 2012
By Kerry B Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
All it took was two seconds to know that I was going to love this book! Being a huge fan of the "Ghost Adventures" show, I was already excited about reading it. I was definitely not disappointed! Nick is a true storyteller, weaving the personal and the paranormal into a fabulous tapestry of his life. At 32, he has already accomplished what most of us only dream of. Excellent read!

Terrific Book~A Must Read for Fans of Ghost Adventures! Oct. 29 2012
By MISSY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book! I have been a fan of Ghost Adventures from first seeing the documentary on the SciFi channel years ago and then the subsequent television show. I enjoyed learning about the history of the original ideas, the making of the documentary that evolved into the television show and all the back stories of how he achieved his great success doing what he loved! I admire his perseverance and dedication to finding and accomplishing his life's dream.

I also enjoyed reading about how his early life experiences directed him to his life's path. It seems to me that his wonderful parents and the youthful meeting of the love of his life contributed greatly to his driving ambition and success against all odds. No one achieves great success without the love, encouragement and help from others along the way.
The detailed and funny life adventures the GAC encounters before during and after their lockdowns enhanced the book as well. I was so happy to see that he featured his favorite investigations with details from behind the scenes as well as his personal observations. The questions and answers about the paranormal and the show are also very informative. I appreciated the listing and explanations of all the unique and innovative equipment they use in their investigations.

I had no idea that Nick actually edited and executive produced the show from the very beginning. I am impressed with the skill and knowledge he has acquired through hard work and blood sweat and tears. That is why this show is so successful. It was his vision from the very beginning and the love and care he puts into each and every show is apparent. That's what makes you want to watch each episode over and over again.

Nick-You did a great job on this book. I hope you consider writing more books as you continue your Ghost Adventures. You are the strong, silent type of person but don't ever think your efforts and and contributions go unnoticed. You, Zak and Aaron are a match made in heaven and make a unique, interesting, funny, likable and accomplished team. Congratulations on your success in television and in life with your beautiful wife and lovely daughter. After reading your book I think it couldn't have happened to a nicer man-you deserve it.

In The Spirit of Rebel Without a Crew! Oct. 3 2012
By Matt Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read through this book ridiculously quickly. There was no point where it dragged!

This was a great book about the paranormal, but it was also an inspiring book about filmmaking in general. Groff has an energy, enthusiasm and positivity that reminds me a lot of Robert Rodriguez in "Rebel Without a Crew". To be honest, I was kind of in a bummed-out mood before I read this book, but it gave me a fresh burst of energy seeing how much of a 'doer' Groff is. I mean, previous to reading this book, I had no idea that Groff did most of the editing of GHOST ADVENTURES himself. For some reason I pictured a team of editors working on the shows, but the fact that each episode was like they were making one Indie film after another really elevated my respect for these guys to an even higher level.

But, yes, seeing how prolific this dude is just made me want to get out there and start doing, doing, doing even more...not that I've been that much of a slacker, but still. Like Groff used to be, I am currently a wedding videographer myself and he helped me understand why doing so many wedding videos was actually helpful to my filmmaking craft (I've been trying to justify the work lately). If you're first starting out in the field of filmmaking, you just have to film and edit whatever. Even if it's not CITIZEN KANE it's still going to help you grow and shape your craft.

Not to self-promote, but check out my website [...] to see my own short paranormal 30min documentary entitled "A Parallel World", about a haunted house on Cape Cod that my aunt and Uncle were renting one winter. You'll also see on my website that I've explored and documented my research into other dimensions of the spirit world, including identifying/communicating with my spirit guides and discovering my past lives, one of which allegedly took place in early 20th century Hollywood. I feel that ghosts are on one dimension, but there are higher dimensions where there are spirit guides and then on even higher levels there are ascended masters and on higher levels there are angels etc. I know it all sounds New-Agey but I feel that once the existence of ghosts has been explored thoroughly enough, spirit guides and masters and angels may be the next entities to look at. Imagine getting EVPs from Angels (or is that even possible?) Maybe there's another tool that allows us to communicate with higher entities. Anyway, just thinking out loud here. Great job again, Nick!
