5.0 out of 5 stars "If you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." Feb. 19 2008
By A. Bruni - Published on Amazon.com
The above is a Friedrich Nietzsche quote author Jeff Belanger references, as he describes his closest brush with something unexplainable by using one of the many means he illustrates and chronicles in "Communicating with the Dead." It makes you wonder - how prepared are we to potentially ring-up the other side? Do people really ask themselves this question before they dabble in the Paranormal? What exactly are we hoping to achieve? Belanger himself wasn't sure he was ready when one of his methods, (I won't spoil it for you), actually produces a semi-result. He didn't even go back and try again. So ask yourself this - are you really ready for dead Uncle Joe to stop by and say hi? If so, read on.

Communicating with the Dead is concise, humorous and well written, all while documenting the history of some of the oldest known methods of "spirit communication." It doesn't guarantee results, it doesn't you give you step by step instructions, (though Belanger is right along with you learning and attempting every method.) It guides and educates, while giving vital history of the subject, something many people neglect to pay attention to when they venture into this field. Belanger interviews some of the most important minds in paranormal research, some who have been at this for decades. They claim astonishing results and seem to know what the hell they're talking about. He also speaks with a few people who aren't experts, but have had powerful experiences of their own, experiences which have obviously left them a bit changed, and some might say, enlightened.

Belanger's book is not only a good start, but it's an excellent reference and I strongly believe it should be on any Paranormal Investigators bookshelf, if not any bookshelf belonging to someone with an interest in getting to know the other side. Most people will read "Communicating with the Dead", go through the different methods suggested and be drawn to a couple in particular. Some may identify with more scientific means of communication, while others may be drawn to things like tarot or scrying. Learn about all of these methods, become fairly versed and start with what feels right.

Anyone can pick up a recorder and try to collect EVP. Anyone can take pictures and claim spirit photography - but truly educating yourself on the vast and varied history of paranormal research sets the dabblers apart from the impassioned. Don't you want to know where this came from?

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding read, expertly done May 7 2005
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Finally there's a well-rounded study of spirit communication practices. I've seen books like this done before where some author claims to be an expert on everything -- tarot cards, crystal gazing, ouija boards, etc. Being an expert on all of those things isn't even possible. What this book does is conduct interviews with experts on each of the subjects. It's like a

best-of new age right now. The author interviews leading experts on each of the subjects. He even talks to psychologists and scientists about these subjects. I particularly like the chapter on spirit photography.

This book breaks the subject down to the most basic things, like the electromagnetic spectrum, how we perceive lights, how a camera works, and then gets into how people are using the camera to try and capture images of ghosts. This is a must-read for ghost hunters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belanger knows his stuff and writes with accuracy! June 20 2005
By Lee Prosser - Published on Amazon.com
Gifted with an easy flowing, entertaining writing style, Belanger gives the reader an abundance of helpful data. Reaching beyond the grave is what he indeed does, and does well. This is the type of nonfiction book dealing with the paranormal that does not come along often, for within its well-researched pages are many surprising facts. If you are interested in fine writing and accurate data about the paranormal, this is the book to purchase. Highly recommended, honest, informative, and educational are the words which best describe this book by author Jeff Belanger. Topnotch!

By MJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Jeff is a really great writer. I really like his style, it's like just having a conversation. The book talks about the many different ways people try to communicate with spirits using talking boards, card, and there's also ghost photography plus many other ways.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and well written Jan. 7 2006
By Dennis Mitton - Published on Amazon.com
Interesting stuff. The book is more of an overview of the methods that different cultures and sects have used to contact the dead rather than a book of technique. It's very readable and the text is clear and well written. There are interviews with practitioners of many methods and the overall effect is objective and well rounded.

An excellent introduction into the methods of contacting spirits.
