Staying focused on only U.S. government projects to investigate and utilize ESP and psychokinesis created a page-turner. All the events visited are front-pagers, from WW2 to the moon landing, to the Arab-Israeli conflict, to hostage crises, etc. Pulitzer Prize nominee Annie Jacobsen combed a myriad of declassified material and gives us a balanced history of material that tends to polarize nearly everyone who hears about it. The events often create only believers and non-believers, but this book stays balanced. We get as complete a tour as possible unless some material still classified could be added. In the conclusion, the present years, Annie Jacobsen manages to wrap it up with a convincing conclusion.
