Yes, says Michael White, author of books on subjects ranging from Stephen Hawking to genetic research to Isaac Asimov, as well as hundreds of articles on cutting-edge science issues. As both a science expert and someone who has had first-hand experience with the paranormal, White is uniquely qualified to discuss the strange and bizarre--to explain the seemingly unexplainable.

Probing into the possible scientific underpinnings of everything from psychic spoonbending to interstellar travel to multiple dimensions, Michael White looks at the weird world of the paranormal, and shows how unbelievable things can remain within the limits of accepted science. Weird Scienceproves that truth certainly is stranger than fiction-and often much more interesting, too.
