Summary, etc.:
"The author, a paranormal investigator and co-star of Kindred Spirits, has spent years studying the otherworldly. She's uncovered back stories that explain and corroborate apparitions, and says that recognizing that ghosts are people can help us move from fear to empathy for them." -- (Source of summary not specified)
Bruni reveals the insights she has gleaned over years of studying the otherworldly, and explains how these unwavering truths have shaped her unique approach to interacting with the spirits of the dead and those who encounter them. Her efforts to better understand the dead but not yet departed are told with humor and compassion for both those who are haunted those who are haunting. -- adapted from jacket

    Paranormal investigator, Ghost Hunters regular, and current co-star of Kindred Spirits, Bruni has spent a lifetime in search of ghosts. Here she treats fans to some of her most memorable experiences and shares tips for amateur ghost-hunters. From a young age, she experienced strange happenings, including a possible Bigfoot sighting, that spurred her interest in the paranormal. For years, seeking out ghosts and otherworldly beings was her hobby—as she maintains it should be for most aspiring ghost-hunters; don't think this is your road to fame. She shares some of her early encounters, as well as retells—adding more background and details—many cases previously featured on Kindred Spirits, giving behind-the-scenes context to all the work that goes into the one-hour show. Bruni's conversational style and ghost-hunting tips that also serve as life tips (go in with an open mind, don't judge, beware of your own bias), plus the fact that she makes no attempt to win over non-believers, make this a perfect read for fans and anyone interested in the paranormal.
