“Stephen Braude’s books are known for their original and penetrating insights; Dangerous Pursuits is no exception. Ranging from mediumship and parapsychology to multiple personality and jazz, Braude is an equal opportunity challenger, taking on unconventional thinkers as well as conventional paradigms. Although his topics are weighty, his clarity of expression and his wry sense of humor make every chapter a delight to read and to contemplate.”
— Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., co-editor Varieties of Anomalous Experience

“Stephen Braude has excellent factual knowledge of the psychic, the mind, mediumship and related areas, and then shares his clear and deeper thinking about what they might be, how they work, and what are dead ends in our thinking that we can avoid. He’s not afraid to wrestle with complexities others skim over…like mediums who cheat sometimes, or just what is this “person” that we think might survive death. You can read a lot of Dangerous Pursuits for the pleasure of satisfying your curiosity, but you’re also going to be thinking a lot more deeply as you read along. Excellent!”
— Charles T. Tart, Ph.D., author of Altered States of Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychologies
