A great book. If you are a fan of the show-you will enjoy reading about the cases you've seen on t.v. and know more about them. If you never seen the show-still get the book cause it's very interesting.

A very nice and light book that reviews and looks at cases aired and un-aired from the popular Ghosthunters show on Sci-Fi. (one of my favorite shows!)

Each case runs about 2 to 5 pages so this is a book you can read a bit of and put down and then come back to later. :)

I just found this book last night at the bookstore. I didn't even know that these guys had a book out!!!
An amazing book and one that you know you can read about ghosts without getting that eerie feeling like you shouldn't be reading it. In the first two hours of having the book I read over 100 pages. The stories of their cases are amazing and they explain their theories on everything! They talk about cases we have never seen before and ones that we have.

This really is an amazing book. If you love the show or ghost hunting you'll love this book. And again this is a book you can read safely without getting that feeling like you're doing something you shouldn't, as they do not hide anything in the book that could cause you to invite something into your home that you don't want there (they discuss this in the book, how many hauntings are caused by people inviting the spirits and/or demons into their home and they have no idea that they did such a thing)

A must for anyone who loves the show. It has the story of how TAPS began, Jason's mysterious experience of how he got interested in the paranormal, and older cases that were never televised.

This book gives Jason and Grants' stories of why they became ghost hunters. It also gives details of some of the episodes shown on their show. I found it very interesting.

This show is amazing and getting to see more of the behind stuff was a blast! The cases ranged from faked to way too stinken real!

I was pleased with how well it was done. And for a person with a vivid imagination not quite as scary as the show!

the book is just a written review what in the show. No new story. If you watched the show no need to read the book. The book was a lame duck. They cover an hour show in a few poorly written pages. HAD hoped for a better read but it wasn't so I would have pissed if I paid full price for a new book .

Easy read done in vignette form. A nice addition to any "Ghost Hunter" fan's or the average paranormal enthusiast's library.

The book is about 2 Roto Rooter plumbers by day and a team of ghost hunters by night that go by the name of T.A.P.S (see title for what they stand for). They and their team go into places that are supposedly haunted and investigate using all sorts of paraphernalia. They take video, photos, and voice recordings all those sorts of things. After they are done with the investigations they go over their data and analyze it to see if they picked up anything un-natural. Then they go back to their clients and let them know the results. Some of the clients find having a ghost interesting and choose to leave it alone. Others, not impressed by the whole situation, decided they want it gone. It depends on what the ghost is doing. One client of theirs had a ghost of a little boy that liked to play with his dog in the middle of the night. His dog had squeaky toes and the owner would take the toys and store them away in the night. He would wake up the next morning and the toys would be out on the floor. It kept happening night after night. Occasionally he would wake up the next morning and find new toys with the old ones. So he called in TAPS and had them investigate and what they found was that it was a ghost of a little boy who was getting the toys out of the closet and playing with the dog. He decided to keep the ghost around since it was not doing any harm.

In one story one of their members had to do an exorcism on a girl. They also talked about how one couple called them in complaining that they thought their wall was haunted and it turned out the couple had rigged something to make it look like something was in their walls making noises.

It's a fun book
