I know some people say to just skip right on to the advanced one but personally I wouldn't as this book has the skills needed to use the advanced handbook, very good with decent detail although some exercises need a partner a lot don't and you could change them up to do solo
Although this book is informative on the variants of psychic talents I didnt realise when I bought it based on the sample I got that you more or less need to work in pairs. Not possible if you live alone or are not part of a meditation or spiritual group.
Firstly, do not be put off by the title as many people discredit such subjects or even worse, brand them as dangerous. Actually, this book is really about three things- personal development, meditation and spirituality. These are honourable subject areas in themselves and Helen and Diane clearly work very well together. Their style is friendly and non judgemental and the book is written in a very practical and relevant way. As a basic guide, the book covers a wide subject area and is also very experience based, with every chapter having a detailed exercise based on a script format. This being the case, the accompanying CD's (which are equally great value) really are a very welcome accessory. The sample e-book is a good representation of this book- it's well worth a try.
