Very disappointed with this purchase. The Picture clearly shows all 9 books individually, however when your purchase arrives it is all contained in one volume. Gone are the glossy pages and even the hardback covers. ONE PAPERBACK BOOK. I understand the price is very low but the picture needs to be changed to display the real item.
I didn't get what was in the photo. I got a condensed, paperback version of the series. I wanted the hardcover collection to add to the ones I already had.
Good read
LOVE it, was happy it was a compile in one book :D
Not what I received
Not happy with this.. I thought it was the all separate hard copies like the picture they advertise not a paperback compilation.. GAAY

This is an excellent distillation of a classic series of books I remember looking at as a middle school aged kiddo. Perhaps because in the witchcraft book there was a picture of a naked Wiccan chick and I was thirteen. But, that's not the point. I have always liked to read about mysterious phenomenon, even when I don't believe in them like alien abductions. This condensed version makes the Time Life editors seem like geniuses, as they move from one topic to another and cover the whole gamut of weird stuff with aplomb and quickness. The pictures are great, including a couple of dozen full-paged color plates. A good book if you can pick it up cheap full of good fun.
For those who don't know, the Mysteries of The Unknown book series was started in the late 80s; it was sort of a follow-up to the "Enchanted World" series that Time-Life released earlier that decade--except this time it was from more of a scientific than mythological point of view. The books tended to be sensationsalist, the scientific data and counter-arguments always contained in the end of the book so not as to ruin anyone's fun. However, those who kept their subscriptions for the duration recieved a treat near the end when the books started to get more in-depth and introspective: books such as "Cosmic Duality", "Search For The Soul" and "Time and Space" are all excellent books which dealt with some of the more mysterious aspects of our everyday life. Unfortunately, the books colleceted in this volume are from the first half; with the exception of "Dreams and Dreaming"; which was one of the last, and best, books of the series. The entire text of the following books is contained within: Mystic Places, The UFO Phenomenon, Psychic Voyages, Phantom Encounters, Mysterious Creatures, Transformations, Visions and Prophecies, Mind over Matter, Cosmic Conncetions, Dreams and Dreaming, Magical Arts, and Witches and Witchcraft.
Therefore, if you are interested in any of these things, or are trying to find copies of said books, buy this one. Time-Life should really consider putting the missing books into a second volume, since the ones which are left out were some of the best of the series.
The MoTU books which are NOT included are as follows: Psychic Powers, Spirit Summoning, Ancient Wisdom and Secret Sects, Hauntings, Powers of Healing, Search for The Soul, Time and Space, Utopian Visions, Secrets of the Alchemists, Cosmic Duality, Eastern Mysteries, The Psychics, and Earth Energies.
