Publisher's Summary

In 1958, a successful businessman named Robert Monroe began to have experiences that drastically altered his life. Unpredictably, and without his willing it, Monroe found himself leaving his physical body to travel via a "second body" to locales far removed from the physical and spiritual realities of his life. He was inhabiting a place unbounded by life or death.
Monroe recorded these experiences in two best-selling, landmark books, Journeys Out of the Body and Far Journeys. Ultimate Journey, his final and career-defining work, takes us further than we thought possible - and reveals to us what it all means.
Ultimate Journey charts that area which lies "over the edge," beyond the limits of the physical world. It presents us with a map of the "interstate" - the route that opens to us when we leave our physical lives, with their entry and exit ramps, their signposts and their hazards. It also tells us how Monroe found the route and travelled it, and uncovered the reason and the purpose of this pioneering expedition. It is a journey that reveals basic truths about the meaning and purpose of life - and of what lies beyond.
After six hardcover printings, the trade paperback edition of Ultimate Journey, will offer an even wider range of readers this exhilarating reading experience, the masterwork of one of the most daring and original thinkers and explorers of our time.

I wish Mr. Monroe had written more books.

Where does Ultimate Journey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the third and last book of Robert Monroe, I found all three to be excellent and sad when each ended.

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

I love his voice and even pace. I absolutely think Kevin Pierce did an excellent reading for all of Robert Monroe’s books. I enjoy listening to him so much that I looked up all the books he has narrated (plenty of books and topics) and ordered one.

Any additional comments?

I want to thank the Monroe Institute(family) for turning these books to audio.

Some wisdom, updates, reflections, looking forward

First off, just want to mention that the Narrator, Kevin Pierce, is so good at his job that it is easy to not notice how professional he is. And, the editor too. I always notice when an audiobook has flaws, and when the production is so smooth, it is easy to take it for granted. Kevin Pierce pays attention to what he is reading, so his voice is a perfect presentation of the sentence written. And, whoever edited this audiobook was paying attention too. It's smooth listening, and there are no annoying errors to distract from the listening.

I have the actual book Ultimate Journey. I thought I had read it, but was often surprised while listening to the audiobook because it was as if I was hearing something new.

I love listening to wise old people who have had time to think about what they have learned. In this final book of Robert Monroe's trilogy, he has had time to explore further, and updates us on previous explorations - the people or entities and places he has revisited - and what he has learned since.

His writing is still beautiful, matter-of-fact, and rich in good advice, observations, reflections, and wisdom.

The trilogy is a treasure for someone interested in why we are here.
