Read full description of the books:
I wan't sure if I should put this book in my non-fiction shelf or not.
Well, it is about real delusions that real people actually have, right? Also, the author meant it as reality, the poor thing, which means that to him it's all real, right? So I decided to go ahead and do it. It's really about fiction though.
Most of the mysteries presented are not mysterious at all. If you dedicate a little bit of time to each, you'll find dozens of sites offering perfectly normal, science and logic based explanations to every single one of them.
There is nothing original about this book either. Every phenomena presented here is one of the same old bullshit "unexplainable" stories that you can find anywhere else.
The only valid reason to read this book is if you want to educate yourself on what kinds of silly things people like to believe in, and then do a web search for skeptic websites to help you understand the reality of each case.

Read information about the authorBorn in NYC, Berlitz was the grandson of Maximilien Berlitz, who founded the Berlitz Language Schools. As a child, Charles was raised in a household in which (by father's orders) every relative & servant spoke to Charles in a different language. He reached adolescence speaking eight languages fluently. In adulthood, he recalled having had the delusion that every human spoke a different language, & wondering why he didn't have his own like everyone else. His father spoke to him in German, his grandfather in Russian, his nanny in Spanish.
He began working for the family's Berlitz School of Languages, during college breaks. The publishing house, of which he was vice president, sold, among other things, tourist phrase books & pocket dictionaries, several of which he authored. He also played a key role in developing record & tape language courses. He left the company in the late 1960s, not long after he sold the company to publishing firm Crowell, Collier & Macmillan. He graduated magna cum laude from Yale Univ.
Berlitz was a writer on anomalous phenomena. He wrote a number of books on Atlantis. In his book The Mystery of Atlantis, he used evidence from geophysics, psychic studies, classical literature, tribal lore, archeology & mysteries & concluded that Atlantis was real. Berlitz also attempted to link the Bermuda Triangle to Atlantis. He claimed to have located Atlantis undersea in the area of the Bermuda Triangle. He was also an ancient astronaut proponent who believed that extraterrestrials had visited earth.
Berlitz spent 13 years on active duty in the US Army, mostly in intelligence. In 1950, he married Valerie Seary, with whom he had a daughter, Lynn. He died in 2003 at the age of 89 at University Hospital in Tamarac, FL.
