Big kudos to Jim Schnabel on writing a wet non-fiction read. 441 pages of fact based information makes this the most comprehensive book I’ve ever read on the subject of remote viewing.
I discovered this book in the bibliography for “How the Hippies Saved Physics,” another worthy read taking place around roughly the same time in American history.
I learned a lot about remote viewing, a subject that I have some personal experience with. I learned about the theory and practice; the variety and uses of remove viewing for intelligence gathering and for research purposes. America wasn’t the only country involved in this kind of intelligence. We got into it because Russia and China were delving deeply into it. It was one more Cold War contest.
“Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies” contains firsthand accounts from most of the people who were directly involved with the program. The author himself tests the claims that anyone is capable of remote viewing by receiving basic training from a couple of the different players in the field and has results that further deepen his conviction in the science of remote viewing.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. It was a surprisingly enjoyable read.
