Hi, I am the author of Out of Body Exploring. I want to respond to Jonathon Livingston's review. While everybody's entitled to their opinion, I would like to correct some errors. First, the book is 178 pgs, not 150. Second, while I do present some lucid dreams, the majority are genuine OBEs. I was able to get proof that I was out of body more than once. Finally, the methods I present are my own, and not taken from any other book. This book is the true story of how I learned to go out of body. It was hard at first, but after practice, I learned to maintain the out of body state. While out of body, I was able to visit deceased loved ones, learn about my past lives, explore the physical world and the astral planes, visit the Akashic Library and more. It was no dream when I visited my deceased mother and she took me on a tour of the heavenly realms. The best proof is to go out of body yourself. Nothing is more convincing (and a little scary) than looking at your body while you're standing outside of it! One time while out of body, I stood in front of the mirror and there was nothing there! Now that's a weird feeling. Anyway, my main reason for writing the book was not to get fame -- most people look at your like your crazy when you talk about this! I just think that going out of body is great fun and a spiritually transformational experience. I think it has the possibility to improve your lives both spiritually, physically and emotionally. There's an excerpt on my website if you'd like to learn more. I'll end this note with a wish and a blessing that you too will partake of the infinite joy, power and knowledge of the out of body experience!!!
After having read so many positive reviews I was expecting much more from this book than it has delivered. What it basically contains is 150 pages of some half-assed mostly lucid dreams with the author's incoherent and off-topic remarks in between that hardly add to the clarity of his descriptions, but rather serve as a filler in an attempt to mimic other similar, but much more interesting and original books. The techniques themselves were laid out in the end on 7,5 (!) pages only. And even those are copied straight out of dozens other books on the subject.
All in all: this book is simply an account of half-assed lucid dreams that the author pretentiously tries to picture as full-fledged OBEs in an attempt to catch the fame. Definitely not worth your time and money.
