Product Description

Review

'The Out-of-Body Experience is a hot topic . . . Anthony Peake has extensively covered various fields of enquiry that may, at last, help us to understand this unusual phenomenon. It is the first book on the topic to cast its net around dreams, shamanism, Eastern thought and quantum physics, with OBEs as the central core. Those readers who know little about OBEs will find this a splendid introduction. Those who know a lot will know more after they finish this fascinating, and much needed, book.' --Stanely Krippner, Ph.D., Alan Watts Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, co-author of Personal Mythology

'Anthony Peake has written the most incredibly lucid and comprehensive book on the most incredibly complex and mysterious subject.' --Ervin Laszlo Ph.D., author, co-founder of the WorldShift Foundation

Format: Paperback
I was very much looking forward to reading the latest (pretty much ONLY available recent mainstream book on the subject of OBEs) book of Anthony Peake's, as I'd heard through the grapevine that he was a man who wrote about these subjects with integrity. However, I was very disappointed with how he has basically rehashed (badly) most of the other OBE books that are available, such as Robert Monroe's and Susan Blackmore's. He's bagged the clever title, included the word 'science', and extracted all his information from other, reputable, sources. Then, he has reworked it into a book that is written so badly, he's actually contributed to undermining the entire subject! His tendency to over-complicate things and create his own names/terms for ancient concepts which have been discussed by man since before Aristotle was a boy, lends it a wishy-washy, unreliable air. This book does NOT provide answers or theories - just more questions. It is a shame that this is currently the leading title on the subject in the UK, so I would highly recommend that people save their pennies or spend them on other books on the topic. Even though the books may be 'older' in publication date, they remain relevant and predominant in modern parapsychological research on the topic of OBEs - books by Robert Monroe, Oliver Fox, Susan Blackmore, Janet Lee Mitchell, or even David Chalmers' book, 'The Conscious Mind'. However, seen as there aren't many people out there writing on the topic, good on him for having a go.

I so enjoyed reading this book! Anthony Peake has written this so well it gives a brilliant account of what exactly happens when you are in an unconscious state. It makes so much sense. This book is certainly good for people who do meditation, like me! Get this book it will amaze you.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have had many OBEs and other related experiences during my life, and have read many books on the subject. Despite what the one-star review says, Peake's contribution is refreshing and thorough. He introduces all the traditional ways of understanding the experience, before using modern science to create a theory of consciousness that explains OBEs -- and more --in a way that doesn't deny their reality OR take them at face value. I'm not a new reader to the subject or to many of the scientific theories contained within the book, but I did come away with a very new way of understanding my own experiences and I found some answers to my questions.

I almost didn't buy this book because of amazon feedbacks but I'm glad I did it.
The author goes through an interesting historic review of the phenomena and then tries to explain it by a quantum physics approach.
I do believe he is right in many of his ideias and this was the first book (of many) I've seen the phenomena "explained".
The writing is well structured and an easy reading.
I'm going to look for the other books of this author.
Warning: it is not a how-to book. If you are looking for one you'll be disappointed. It's more a review and "why" book.

Astral projection, out of body experiences, call it what you will. Experiences of leaving the body are one of mans oldest anomalous experiences. Anthony takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through the history of the subject before applying his own theories to astral projection - namely that quantum physics is involved with human consciousness. There are some really interesting and challenging ideas here, and this book is destined to become a modern classic. The sort of book I found difficult to put down once I started reading it, and have dipped into it several times again since I finished it!

Anthony Peake offers a unique perspective on a phenomena that many experience but none can understand. He purposely avoids his own opinion and looks at the works of others over many years, and leaves it to the reader to form his or her conclusions. Very impressive.

Having read all of Anthony Peake's books I cannot understand why he contradicts himself not only between his books but also within the same book. He glosses over the serious flaws in his so called logic by trying to baffle the reader with name dropping all over the place. He fails to address major flaws in his theory of life simply being a 'matrix' style game whereby everyone (according to Peake) just lives the same life over and over and how this means his further ideas (vague badly written opinions) on NDE, lucid dreams and remote viewing simply do not make sense within his theory.

Again it features sections of rambling and little else and I do not understand why he feels the need to pad out the book with rephrasing of the same point over and over, is this some attempt to create fake deja vu in the reader for some reason? Or is it just bad writing on his part? The book is again heavily 'borrowed' from other people's work and if you really are interested in Lucid dreaming you would be far better advised to read the books of Stephen LeBerge Lucid Dreaming: A Concise Guide to Awakening in Your Dreams and in Your Life and you would be much better off reading the original works of Robert Monroe than Peakes opinions of him.Journeys Out of the Body
