I am currently doing research for the 2nd edition of my book, The Art of Ghost Hunting, and I thought this would be a great place to ask this question.

Out of all the ghost hunting books you've read, what do you think is missing?

And what would you like to read?

Stressing common sense when doing an investigation. This should be a major factor when setting down protocols for your group or as an individual GH. Know your limitations and the limitations of your equipment AND, above all, keeping things simple.

Over aggressiveness on an investigation is not an uncommon occurrence, ordering, instead of asking, spirits to manifest, move things or otherwise making themselves known is not good policy.

Possibly a section on physical feelings felt by people when spirits touch them or use their energy on them and some detailed descriptions of the feelings and what it can be likened to so people have a good idea of how they can be felt. I think a lot more people have had spirit physically touching them but dont realise half the time.

There are lots of sensations that spirit can cause to people.

Boy did you hit the nail on the head.Above all safty for the team and the client is above all the most important.it would not do to fall through a floor and become a spirit that they one day investigate.

It is not the dead we should fear but the living who walk among us with distorted thought.
