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.
