Eric Wargo has a PhD in anthropology from Emory university, Georgia, works as a science writer in Washington, DC. and runsThe Nightshirt blog covering a wide range of paranormal phenomena. His first book, fully referenced by chapter notes, plus an extensive bibliography and good index, comes with enthusiastic endorsements from Jeffrey Kripal ‘the most significant intellectual work on a paranormal topic in fifty years. He gives us scientific, psychological and interpretive tools to think about this phenomenon in strikingly original ways’, Mitch Horowitz ‘epic breadth, keen observation, deep rigor and great integrity…Writes with epic breadth and succeeds gloriously’, Dean Radin ‘Well written, well balanced overview of the latest scientific interpretations of these mind-bending phenomena. Based upon an increasing body of scientific evidence, precognition is real’ and Nick Herbert ‘Time Loops is the definitive inquiry into cases of people who remember their future. Eric Wargo is the Sherlock Holmes of retrocausation’. He certainly does write extremely well and demonstrates a wide knowledge of the anecdotal and laboratory literature on extrasensory perception (ESP) while concentrating on premonitions, precognitions and their relationship with time. The problem for this reviewer is how to summarise the sheer scope and detail of the material covered in over 400 pages.
