I purchased this book, because I had it when I was a kid. I wasn't sure that I still had mine, so I thought I'd get another and was overjoyed to find it. Me and my dad used to go thru this and talk about the mysteries of the world. My favorite was the Loch Ness monster and my dad liked bigfoot. This book has sparked a life long interest in the paranormal.
I have not yet read this book, but I like this subject. So I'm sure I will like it.
good product good service
For me, this book was an introduction to many a strange thing, and to a better approach to the paranormal. For this book is neither a smug debunking of the kind that Carl Sagan or Richard Dawkins are so keen on, or the sensationalised tabloid trash of the kind you get repeated continually on cable TV...

The book's attitude is summed up in the afterword by Arthur C. Clarke (who as some have cleverly deduced, didn't write this book) - some phenomena are much more plausible than others. This is a good thing, as all too often, there is a black and white approach, which seems to think that all of the so called paranormal is either real (to anyone with an "open mind") or the province of the gullible and ridiculous. So he says, quite rightly, that there's a better chance of "monsters" living in the deep ocean than in smaller lakes and lochs, which can be searched extensively.

My favourite chapter by far, is the one on Tunguska Explosion. This is something everyone should read. Here you've got a genuine mystery, and it is published with some excellent pictures from the original expedition, interviews with the surviving members etc. The bits about ball lightning and sea monsters are superb. Some of the pieces have been debunked since, unfortunately, but at the same time, plenty of things have emerged since - for example, Roswell and Area 51 were not the big legends in the early 80s that they are now.

Anyone who is looking for stuff on telepathy, poltergeists, ghosts etc will be disappointed. This is to be found in the sequel "World of Strange Powers".

It's great to read a book like this - it talks about the odd things in our world, without getting stupid or trashy. Other authors on the paranormal would do well to learn from it.
i was young when i saw this book between my brothers books.just inspecting it and afterwards readind it over and over at a time when books were scarce and the topics a little 'curious' but what amazed me more was mr clarke's scientific and objective approach even to unknown.now i wish my children could read it and travel to many parts of the world with those questions in their mind.in fact as long as we can ask why,how etc. our development will continue...
a rather dull book full of lots of big pictures that take up too much space. Only interesting if you know absolutely nothing about the topic. I bought it, wish I hadn't.

Most interesting chapter was the one about Loch Ness, mostly because of the nice photos, but that's it. Oh and, Mr. Clarke believes Nessie exists on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Oh really? How's that for a scientific book!

Trust me, this book really ain't that good.
