"The Spirit of Dr. Bindelof" focuses on one little known episode of physical mediumship, which is characterized by the movement and levitation of tables and other objects, ectoplasmic apparitions, direct voices and knocking sounds or raps, among other phenomena. This episode is Gilbert Roller's utterly charming and disarming autobiographical account of a group of teenage boys who experimented with siance phenomena and contacted an alleged spirit named Dr. Bindelof in the 1930s. Author Rosemarie Pilkington follows up with the history of these extraordinary physical mediums and the remarkable feats they perform, placing the Bindelof case within this wider framework and bringing it up to date with a review of contemporary "secular" mediums. Physical mediumship has been maligned to the point that most people think all physical mediums are fakes because of the frauds who sought to capitalize on the success of real mediums and because of arch skeptics who refuse to accept what they don't understand. This book demonstrates that these mind-boggling feats are indeed real. Their existence illustrates just how little science knows, and shows us that we need to revise our under- standing of reality in order to explain these phenomena.
