Sinossi

A REAL GHOST STORY THAT WILL HAUNT YOU!
"This is the story of a true haunting. It was the first ever filmed and televised by NBC in 1971. A young couple purchases a building that was built and occupied by a single family that refused to relinquish their hold, even after death. Investigated and verified by experts, this residence brought chaos to the lives of those who chose to reside there. Unlike a horror novel, this chronicles what a real ghostly experience would resemble. Long before the laws of disclosure, a young couple winds up in the midst of strange occurrences prior to the term 'paranormal' becoming a common description. Searching for help at time when supernatural events were a taboo subject and being ignored by the Church, sent them into a desperate search for any assistance.
Only a little known organization came to their aid. Author Tom Valentine, brought in a nationally known psychic, Joseph DeLouise, who then asked assistance of an exorcist from England, Reverend William Derl-Davis. Together, they gave their best effort at exorcising the multiple spirits inhabiting the building and disrupting the lives of the living. Events were filmed by NBC, who sent their most prominent Chicago journalist, Carole Simpson, to cover the event.
Follow a young couple with a newborn as they attempt to cope with inexplicable events, experience denial, plead for help from their Church, and step into the world of the paranormal. Understand why ghosts cannot be exorcised and a true example of their strong sense of domain, even after death. Learn what experts and gifted people did in a failed attempt to assist this desperate couple. There is no happy ending, as the young couple suffers emotionally, are physically threatened, have their pets terrorized, and eventually suffer financially by actually "giving" their building away. What was intended as a financial answer to their prayers became, instead, a curse to be abolished.
Learn many of the various manifestations that can be common in haunting. Ghosts can be seen and heard. They can propel objects and interrupt utilities. They can affect your moods and feed off of your emotions. They can appear as solid as you and me. They can react and become hostile if threatened or violated. Most important, as this young couple learned, they can harm you and cannot be removed. This is a firsthand accounting of what a true haunting is like. There are certain subtle occurrences you may find the most frightening, because you just might relate and recognize them. If so, guess what? You may have a ghost!"

L'autore

Edwin F. Becker is 64 years old. Born in Chicago's inner city, he was the child of a broken home due to an abusive, alcoholic father. He spent years in a Catholic Home for abused and neglected children as a ward of the state. Besides flourishing and achieving high academic standards, he learned Latin as an altar boy. With the sudden death of his father, he became a professional musician in his mid-teens, helping to support his mother and younger brother and sister. Touring the country, he met his wife of 44 years traveling through Tulsa, Oklahoma. Giving up this lucrative and exciting profession, he attended evening college and entered the early years of the computer industry initially as a programmer technician. As technology exploded in growth, he rose through the ranks into management and eventually a Corporate Vice president for a national health-care manufacturer. After suffering a near fatal heart attack, he relocated to Missouri, where for a few years he and his wife ran an antique and collectible shop. He now enjoys the year around entertainment making Branson his home. His interests are numerous and varied, as his 64 years have allowed him to participate in everything from basketball to martial arts. His hobbies, besides writing and playing with his guitar collection, range from ballistics to bible history. His crown jewels are his two daughters and his four grandchildren. He shares the special interest of his youngest daughter [28] who fosters abused children and runs a animal rescue group. He has a son-in-law in Law Enforcement.

True Haunting

Just before Thanksgiving, (2011) I was sitting at my desk, when I was wondering about people I had known. At some point I thought about the Becker's; so I searched the internet, and was directed to Amazon. There I found "True Haunting" by Edwin F. Becker; could it be! I had not seen or heard from Mr. and Mrs. Becker in forty years.
As I stared at this book, the memories hit me like a "thunderbolt exploding in my mind". I started reading the excerpts from "True Haunting," and I could hardly breathe. I was instantly transported back to the months that I lived in that apartment. Yes, I am the "Dave" mentioned in the book!
Mr. Becker's accounts of the events that he recalled, was like it happened yesterday. The events I remembered about that building are so true. Until I read his book I had not remembered many of the unspoken events that changed my life. Things that took place in our apartment could have filled another chapter. This was the first book I had ever ordered from Amazon, most books that I read are tech manuals. So I placed an order and received the book the day before Thanksgiving. This book held my attention till 4am! I could not put it down! I was so touched by the accounts in the book; I sent Mr. Becker an email and my phone number. It was like magic, he called me! Forty years ago that haunted building ended what could have been a friendship, and now that same haunted building may just bring us together.

5.0 su 5 stelle Interested in ghost hunting? Read this book first. 5 giugno 2012
Di Stacy C. Burns - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
It's rare that I write a review about books I read. Mostly because like film, books are meant to illicit feelings and images to the reader that can be a deeply personal experience. This is NOT one of those books. Edwin Becker is as straight forward and to the point as it gets when it comes to his personal experience. Taking place in the early 70's, the Becker's haunting experience is honest, frightening and at times painful. This is not sensational. It's not filled with classic jump scares so often seen in horror movies. What makes this book compelling and a must read is it's pure reality. This really happened. From the beginning of this book I knew I was reading something different. Something unlike all the ghost accounts out there. This book does not suffer the same fate as a lot of well meaning books on this subject. Publishers like 'spice' and 'thrills' and at times authors are forced into a corner. Write a few 'embellished' events to keep readers attention or risk being turned down for publication. This book suffers from none of this.

Edwin Becker and his wife Marsha bought their first home. Young, naive and excited homeowners that they were, they totally ignored the strange and unusual events taking place every day. In the 1970's, as the author describes, the only image that people had for ghosts was the Hollywood one. Spectral ghouls, floating skeletons, moaning banshees, this was the view of the 'ghost' world. The Exorcist had not yet gone to print. Probably a good thing for the Beckers. As the entities began to make their presence more and more obvious, the Beckers and their tenants began a slow mental decline. As Mr. Becker uncovers more of the previous family's secrets,the pieces begin to fall into place. Their home was the scene of probably one of the first televised exorcisms by a local NBC station. The clip of the original broadcast is available on YouTube.

Compared to the plethora of ghostly TV shows and modern day paranormal research, this clip may seem tame. However, in it's simplicity it hides a dangerous fact. This being that most hauntings are not the sensationalized spectacles a new Hollywood makes them out to be. Any angry entity that is antagonized can act out. Unfortunately, Mr. Becker, do to his lack of any type of access to information (it just didn't exist) did all the wrong things. Any of us would back then.

So dear reader, before you go blasting into a haunted building with your EMF detectors and FLIRS this is a must read. Why? Because from 35 years of personal experience I can tell you, working with entities can be exceedingly dangerous. They are on a level that takes years of study to even begin to understand. If one does not have the proper training that 'harmless little boy' begging for help could be the demon you are not prepared to deal with. The sweet old man will maniacally change and attach himself to you because you unwittingly offered to 'help' him. Forget about 'exorcisms' for human souls, they will only work on demons. Unfortunately, the Beckers found this out firsthand. This was the compelling part of the book for me. You see, Mr. Becker carefully and painstakingly accounts what he learns about ghosts. His personal discoveries about human entities are spot on and accurate. I'm sure he had no idea they were, he was just chronicling his personal experiences. The final outcome is a good one, however it leaves the reader with more questions then answers. This is not the authors fault. The Beckers only wanted closure and for the most part, they received it. Some of their tenants, unfortunately, were not so lucky.

In closing, I cannot stress reading this chronicle enough. In it's simplicity, away from the hype and fervor of what we see on TV, this is a crystal clear picture of a classic haunting. It is my sincere wish that what you take away from this book is the reality that ghosts are people. People. Not sideshow freaks made to do tricks or knockings or getting them to play pianos in the middle of the night. Chasing them, using Ouija boards etc. only serves to confuse and disturb them or worse, make them frustrated and angry. Another lesson the unknowing tenants of the Beckers discovered.

This reader sincerely hopes that Edwin Becker will write a follow up to this fascinating and insightful book.

Di Rickman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I just happened to catch the story about the house on the channel 5 news 40 years ago. Couldn't believe it when I heard there was a book written by the same guy that was on the news segment. What a story! I kept thinking all the way to the end, "What if it was me?" Really interesting read even if you are not into paranormal events.

5.0 su 5 stelle Caution: don't start reading this one at night! 1 maggio 2012
Di JazminKat - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
If you start reading this book at night, there are at least two reasons why you won't be getting any sleep: you won't be able to put it down, and once you do, you'll be too scared to turn off the light! True Haunting was an exceptionally fun read. The narrative style was very engaging and fast-paced, bringing the reader into the story from page one. The book was also quite spooky, especially when you consider the relatively normal behaviors exibited by the house's ghosts. No Hollywood skeletal spectres here, just a build-up of (at first) innocuous behaviors that get progressively worse and worse. The reader can feel the deterioration of the situation with each passing chapter. I highly recommend this book for anyone with an interest in the supernatural... or anyone buying a house!!! :)

5.0 su 5 stelle Like a haunted house - it's more than I bargained for! 21 agosto 2013
Di Evelyn - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Series of events lead me to this book just a few days ago, it began at the cinema when my husband took me to see The Conjuring, we never - well, dare I say, we rarely ever go to the pictures and this seemed a film that deserved the novelty of a cinematic experience! A scene where thousands of birds appeared crashing into the house and making quite a cacophony, reminded me of an episode of Paranormal Witness, with similar circumstances of thousands of birds appearing during an exorcism. At home I researched the book written by Andrea Perron, recommended alongside it was True Haunting, on instinct I bought it and soon discovered this was the very same haunting with the birds from Paranormal Witness. I apologise for that wasn't a fantastic serendipitous adventure, just strange how I came to find this book and haven't been able to put it down! I appreciate what the author has gone through in writing this, reliving it all through memory and such.
i personally have never been a skeptic having lived in old houses in Vermont and growing up around cemeteries, I understand that 'sensing' ability, I have only been touched once by the spirit of a young girl who tugged at my shirt as I was cleaning a 'new' hotel, and to this day I find it hard to believe but want to believe despite the obvious logic. Cheers Ed! From dear old Blighty ~

There is a difference between a ghost and a spirit, though both of them are surviving minds of dead persons. A ghost often seems to reject that it is dead. &quote;
