Book Review: “Respectful Ghost Hunting: Insights into the Paranormal” by Susan Hill and Jamie Mose

Written by two investigators, this book provides basic paranormal investigation tips and the authors’ stories from their own investigations. Each chapter is split between each author so they can each address the topic in their own words. It appears to be self-published by the authors.

Would I recommend this book? No. I wanted to like this book because I am ALWAYS talking about respecting the dead but I feel like this book fell short on addressing this topic. Respect was the title of chapter 5 and was a total of 3 pages (including a picture). The first 66 pages are devoted to the process of investigation which would be good except that each section is split between the authors and what is written is often redundant. The last 100 pages are devoted to their personal stories which also overlap on occasion increasing the feeling of redundancy in the book.

Pros: Easy read with lots of pictures. The overview of equipment by Susan Hill was very thorough and could be useful to people new to the field.

Cons: Redundant and in need of editing. I would have liked to read more about how investigators can go about showing respect, ways of dealing with people who are disrespectful, and navigating the paranormal field with an ethical mind. There is a lot that can be covered on the topic of respect in the paranormal field so this feels like a missed opportunity.
