I bought the actual book on the late 80's and loved it. The narrated version is by far the best. It is clear and narrated as the author himself would have done it. Great book I highly recommend it.

Methodical, Revealing, Fascinating exploration . .

of the greater reality.

This is the best introduction, explanation, and instruction book on the greater reality experienced by people in their dream states or consciously while out of body.

Robert Monroe's book is often referred to by other authors who share their out of body experiences and methods. Perhaps that is why some of the other authors' books lack specific details, maybe they assume people have started with Robert Monroe's books.

This, the first of Robert Monroe's books, is the most methodical and explanatory of the three. The second book, written about a decade later, is more relaxed, funny at times, adventurous, spiritual, and fascinating. The third book, also about another decade later, cycles back and incidents referred to here in this first book are viewed differently, and mysteries are revealed. The third book is a mature understanding of what has happened in the previous decades, examinations as to why we are born, who we are, humanity's purpose and destiny, and more on our evolution.

I hope the second and third books Robert Monroe wrote, Far Journeys and Ultimate Journey will soon follow in audible format as well.

The audible format does a lot to enhance the first book. There were moments in reading it in hardcover format that some sections were dry, yet having it read out loud in the Audible format was a different experience. The book retained my interest.

The descriptions of various layers of reality, referred to as Locale 1, Locale 2, Locale 3, etc., the very useful descriptions of how to achieve the out of body state, the many experiences shared of what happened, where he went, what he saw . . . all were interesting.

This book is both an excellent overview of not only the out of body experience but also of the reality experienced beyond the physical five senses. For the curious, this is the book to get the best description of what people are talking about when they talk about OBE (Out of Body) or NDE (Near Death Experiences.)

For those who have read Robert Monroe's books already, along with books by other OBE authors, this is a fun book to read again because if you've already read the trilogy, and remember how the books cycle back to the first book, it brings a smile to your face when you hear Bob Monroe relate what he went through, knowing what comes later as he gains a better understanding of who he is. And, because there is so much information in this one book, much may have been forgotten from before.

A classic, "the" OBE book to have.
