"Radin makes the most powerful case for the reality of parapsychological phenomena that I have yet encountered . . . this book shows that we are at a turning point in our scientific understanding of our minds and of nature." (Rupert Sheldrake, author of The Sense of Being Stared At)

"Radin is a mix of curiosity, scholarship, technical expertise and sly wit." (New York Times Magazine)

"Radin shows the evidence in favor of paranormal existence is overwhelming." (Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate in physics)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but nothing new really... 8 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
I've read both of Radin's earlier works ('The Conscious Universe' and 'Entangled Minds') so I was quite excited when I discovered that he'd released a new book.
What new insights, conclusions, research developments, etc, had emerged since the last publications hit the shops? I was keen to know.
Well, to my dismay, The Noetic Universe added very little. In fact, it's more like a merging of the previous two books published on the back of the interest generated by the release of Dan Brown's 'The Lost Symbol'.
Don't get me wrong, it's still a very interesting read and an excellent summary of psi research and findings, but I would have expected something more...such as more reference to research in the last 10 years. There's quite a lot of research out there which add weight to previous findings, but none of it is referenced or discussed here.
So, in sum, if you haven't read anything of Radin's before, buy this book; it won't disappoint. If you have read his earlier works, it will disappoint. Your best option in that case is to just Google Dean Radin to get the latest information on what's going on in the field.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mutton dressed as lamb 24 April 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this based on the title and the fact on the cover it says the author is a senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Science. In fact it is a reissue of a 1997 book the Concious Universe, with an extra two page introduction.

This might be a good book in 1997 but as it misses 13 years reserch and says nothing about the Noetic Institute research it is basically a con.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Truly Scientific Analysis of Psi 29 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is quite superb. It deals with real experiments that have been conducted, and the statistical analyses that went with them, The existence of psi is now uncontrovertibly proved, despite the "religion" of the skeptic being rubbished. Don't be put off by the fact that scientific experimentation and statistical analysis are used. The author explains it for the intelligent layman right at the start of the book. You will be stunned at the proof of psychic phenomena that Radin has uncovered, in a professional, scientific manner.

A word of caution. If you have already read his other book, "The Conscious Universe", don't bother buying this book as it is the same book under a different title and cover illustration. I was hugely disappointed after reading "The Noetic Universe", and wanting to read more of Radin's work, to find after I had bought "The Conscious Universe" that the internals of both books are absolutely identical. I won't be buying any more of his books .... just in case !

4.0 out of 5 stars Noetic Science 30 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
Great book if you enjoyed Rhonda Byrne's The Secret and Dan Brown's Lost Symbol. A little too detailed in places for bedtime reading but some great background information. This book would be fabulous if the text was bigger, a little hard on the eyes. Overall would recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clarification... 29 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
An excellent read, written by the scientist who is a model of rigour and objectivity.

The book is actually a retitled edition of "The Conscious Universe", presumambly because the publisher wishes to capitalise on the Dan Brown effect. May great success be theirs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opening 30 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this on the back of reading Dan Brown's Lost Symbols (as i guess a lot of people have). Good, solid evidence. Haven't quite finished it yet, and some bits are a bit of a hard read, you have to think about it and concentrate, but if this book is right, and there is no reason i can see not to believe the evidence, there are some incredible implications

5.0 out of 5 stars The scientific exploration of psi 3 Nov 2011
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
It is disappointing when publishers re-publish their books with different covers and titles hoping to dupe unsuspecting customers into buying the same book twice over. This book, The Noetic Universe, is in fact almost an exact copy, page for page, of The Conscious Universe published by HarperCollins in 1997. The book itself is excellent and I can do no better than reproduce my review of the same book under its earlier title. But I do deplore this kind of commercial exploitation of a public eager to keep up with developments in this field.

Dean Radin's scientific background is in electrical engineering and psychology, but he has focussed his attention for more than a decade now on parapsychology or psi. This excellent book gives some of the scientific methodology that has confirmed that psi is a real phenomenon of the world and not the `superstitious nonsense' that some critics would have us believe. The title of the book derives from this world-view of the universality of psychic phenomena: `both modern physics and ancient Buddhist doctrine suggest [that] `deep' interconnectedness embraces everything, unbound by the limitations of time and space.' Radin agrees with the idea of Sir Arthur Eddington that `the stuff of the world is mind-stuff'.

The book is divided into four parts: 1. Motivation, with a definition of psi and some of the statistical techniques used for validation of experimental results; 2. Evidence. This section, representing nearly half of the book, gives us some of the evidence for telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis - the most studied and best authenticated forms of psi; 3. Understanding.

This book has much to tell us but it takes a long time to do it. So far, I have not been gripped by what Dean has written. More facts or case studies would be helpful. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard reading, a great use of unheard of words.
I found it very difficult to read, and didn't understand quite a lot of the words.
