BONUS TIP: Most public libraries have at least one copy in the Spirituality section, so you can see if it's to your liking it for the low cost of just your tax dollars.
Mrs Brandon has made up her mind from the beginning. Being a buddy of Martin Gardner and James Randi, that is what can be expected.
Not that the book is not entertaining. It is. Obviously Mrs Brandon is a journalist, out to make fun. She is not a historian. She is not concerned in the least with truth. From the start she only mentions everything that fits in her rubbish-frame, and all the facts, proof, everything that might, just might, point in another direction, is left out. I'm not a spiritualist, but I would be ashamed of myself if I thought that all the people who REALLY did their jobs in investigating the phenomena of early spiritualism, were just gullible idiots. There was a lot of trickery and money making and falseness, but that doesn't explain away everything. Mrs Brandon fails to mention a lot. In terms of debunking she did a wonderful job. In terms of being honest, she failed. Miserably.
If you are looking for history, don't buy this book!
