Three innocent initials which mean the impossible, the absurd, the ridiculous to countless others.

Rhine at Duke University based on workable scientific methods?
ESP-Extra-Sensory Perception-is very much like politics, baseball and philosophy; people are either fans or they aren't. But Susy Smith, a noted researcher in this field, had provided a personable and basic introduction to the subject, one that is as much of interest to the non-believer as the devotee.
Using straightforward language, Miss Smith sets out to show notable examples of ESP...what to expect from it, how it behaves and misbehaves, how it is controlled, why some scientists scoff and others give whole hearted support.
Her work, always of high order, shows the effect of research and understanding of the subject. And of all the many persons writing today about para-normal experiences, Miss Smith, unafraid of an possible criticism or scorn, adds sympathy and involvement to her approach, making her uniquely competent to introduce this fascinating subject to readers who have always heard about ESP, but who have never taken the trouble to investigate.« less
