An extract from the book states:
This book is for you who have stared into the night sky or dark recesses of a room, hairs raised on the back of your neck, eyes wide, faced with an experience you couldn't explain but about which you have never stopped wondering, "Was it real?" It's for you who have read and heard about UFOs, psychic phenomea, time travel, out-of-body experiences, ghosts, monsters, astrology, reincarnation, mysticism, acupuncture, iridology, incredible experiments in quantum physics, and a thousand other extrordinary things, and asked, "Is it true?"
