Still in print in some editions – not bad going after forty years!

Originally published as Dowsing: Techniques and Applications by Turnstone Books back in 1976, with a mass-market paperback by Granada Publishing, this has become one of the dowsing classics: it certainly led a major dowsing revival when it was first published, as it was perhaps the first book to open up the field to anyone, in a highly practical, easily-understood way. It was the test-case for my MA thesis on design for skills-education, and I think I proved my point!

Lyall Watson, author of SupernatureGifts of Unknown Things and many other books, commented, about the original Turnstone edition: “Tom Graves’ book is simple. lucid, and yet comprehensive. The best thing of its kind ever done on dowsing.”
