I'm afraid you really haven't convinced me it's worth spending time and money on this book.

You haven't provided one good reason (that I value) for me to read it. You go ahead and enjoy it though.

It won't solidify my beliefs - they do not need solidifying. Apart from that, something which is on very shakey scientific ground would not solidify anything for me.

If it was, it would be up on PubMed, not in a self-gratifying book...

Not to mention the obvious accolades afforded to the discoverer of conclusive proof of the supernatural.

The context of your question is wrong.

If somebody said-
Im not sure that Neptune exists and would like to explore that possiblity using new science , and then went on to painsakingly show how his new science was impartial, unbiased, with checks and balances and after putting his credibility on the line, using the strictest protocol...

...I would applaud the researcher and not ridicule the messenger, no matter what the results.

And I would be willing to review the data before commenting on it's accuracy.

upon completion of the review I would then be able to comment on a validation of a long held belief based on the methodology of the researcher.

Ummm, pass. I am judging this book by its cover.

BTW diamond, does he mention in the book if the people being read by the mediums are believers or cynics?

I wouldnt. I would review the accuracy before reading the data. I would only read the data if I believed it to be accurate (or I'm stuck on Wedge Island and the only book in the building is by Van Donegan (sp?) )
