Review: The Supernatural Survival Guide

If you’re anything like me, knowing everything you can about the looming alien invasion, the rise of the kraken, and how to avoid ghostly things that hide in haunted houses is very, very important.

And luckily for me (and you) there’s a book that is here to help. The Supernatural Survival Guide will tell you everything you need to know about EVERYTHING supernatural. Everything to be wary of and how to deal with it if it comes knocking on your door (or creeping round your yard!).

There’s info on aliens and UFOs, beastly creatures, ghosts and spooky stuff, and everything else weird (like supernatural powers and strange disappearances). A weird-o-meter helps guide you through the strangeness, and there are just so many facts and so much information crammed into the pages.

Each section analyses the information included to try to conclude if the phenomenon is fact or fiction, solved or unexplained. But at the end of the day, you get to assess the facts and decide what you think about the strange occurrences.

The detail in this book is really brilliant. Author George Ivanoff has collected a huge variety of close encounters, sightings and evidence, and presents it all in easy-to-understand story snippets. There are loads of fact boxes and lots of images and photographs to work through, so you really are getting everything you need to make an informed decision about the supernatural (hint: it’s all REAL!!!!!!).

With a beautiful hard cover with a lovely fabric feel, this is a book that you will treasure, hide under your pillow and refer to continuously. If you’re a fan of the supernatural (or you know one), this is the perfect book. And with Christmas just around the corner, it would make a perfect gift for everyone who knows how important it is to have a survival plan for the supernatural (hint: it should be everyone!!!!!!).
