From the Introduction:
"... this book is being written for the beginner practitioner. I will assume your knowledge of the subject is limited and will thus offer a simple, step-by-step guide to leaving the body. Although 'astral projection' is often used as a catch-all term for any conscious activity occurring outside the body, throughout this work I will make a clear distinction between etheric projections and astral projections (etheric projections being the most common, at least for me).
"By applying the same techniques I use, I believe that anyone can achieve the out-of-body state on a regular basis and with their full critical faculties intact. Surely if I can do it, you can do it (if you really want it). It is only a matter of conditioning, allowing yourself to see the 'door' that you never noticed, to realize the freedom that you never knew you had -- to edge pass the threshold and beyond matter."

From the Questions & Answers chapter:
Q: When the term "astral projection" is used, does that mean that the astral body is projected to the astral plane?
A: No. The astral body is already on the astral plane, just as the physical body is on the physical plane. You do not actually "project" to planes but rather focus or tune in to specific planes. You become aware, or gain a different perspective (away from physical reality). Your other bodies are all right there with you, interpenetrating one another as each are of a different frequency. To become aware of another plane or region and to use its corresponding body, your consciousness needs to vibrate at that higher frequency. You will then be shutting down your physical senses and tuning into your inner senses.
Q: How many bodies do each of us have?
A: I don't know for a fact how many there are, but man is believed to be equipped with at least the following bodies: the physical body (with the etheric double residing on the highest subplane of the physical); the astral body; and the mental and casual bodies (the causal body residing on the upper mental plane). All of these bodies take up the same space, yet vibrate at a different rate. The higher the rate of vibration, the finer or less substantial the body - the physical body being the most dense, the casual the least; and each designed specifically for (and from) that specific plane.
Most likely, the etheric double is the body you will be primarily attuned to as a beginner practitioner to leaving the body (that is, if you are consciously inducing the separation process; if, however, you have learned to awaken during a dream state, which is more difficult, then you will find yourself within the astral plane).
