Paranormal America: Ghost Encounters, UFO Sightings, Bigfoot Hunts, and Other Curiosities in Religion and Culture - Frederick Carson Mencken, Christopher Bader, Joseph Baker

I found this book while searching through my library's online catalog. It didn't have a description, which some books on the catalog don't. But I borrowed it anyway, thinking it to be about the paranormal in America.

The book does have to do with the paranormal, but more so with people that believe in the paranormal. There are many charts throughout the book and the authors have studied surveys from people of different religions, races, education, etc.

Here and there the book was interesting, but for the most part, it just didn't hold my interest. It was kind of dry. While the data they collected and studied is a bit fascinating, I think it best if you wish to know about the people who believe in the paranormal is to talk to them. Despite what the book shows, we're a varied group from all different backgrounds, race, religions and so on.

The book was just okay for me.
