Give the Early Chapters Time

In this text, Warren takes listeners through the various states of human consciousness devoting a chapter to each. I look for books that inform and are read well. This one did not disappoint. It took me a little time to get into the topic, but once the listener comes to an understanding of the author's intent and method, everything else falls into place.

Readers may think that the author is on something when reading portions of the book. However, I found interesting things to consider every few minutes. I was particularly taken by the authors explanation of how creative people (Edison for example) actually were able to retrieve insights from their light sleep. It was also helpful to understand the role sleep plays in how people learn. Ths discussion on spacial learning and experience of the blind was eye opening (pardon the pun). (The ramifications for students who get by with little rest would have helped me in graduate school for sure!).

This is a highly instructive, informative, entertaining volume that will keep you thinking about the world in a different way for many weeks.

Slowed it down

Although the content is good, I was having a problem with the high speed reading. Using the -1 setting on my iriver solved the problem and I enjoyed this very much. A nice update on what has been going in studies on consciousness. I was particularly interested to hear about the new, more sophisticated methods of biofeedback.
