Kindle Edition of Adventures in the Supernormal

Eileen Garrett’s fascinating memoir about her life and her abilities is available in a Kindle edition (I checked, it’s not yet available as a Google ebook).

I always loved reading what Garrett wrote. It was just more accessible and human than a lot of what I needed to read for my research about the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory. She once wrote J. B. Rhine, (the head of the lab) that she was sure the best seances happened immediately after someone who was loved died. When someone undertakes a single minded search to reconnect they find a way. “Emotion and love are terrific forces of strength, and I do believe that dedicated people do get results that lead them to believe communication is possible.”

“Results cannot be achieved three times a day … One has to be in a state of animated anticipation, desiring without desire.” Later in life she said she only worked for those who were sick or in desperate need.

I like how someone at Amazon (or someone gave Amazon) a scan of an old cover. It looks like it’s from the 50’s.

    This is one of the first books I read when I was a child, along with Charles Fort’s Book of the Damned. I found that reading the works of the earlier “celebrities” in the field quite revealing. I even read Ruth Montgomery in those days. In fact, I read everything I could get my hands on, From Charles Berlitz to Zolar…LOL
