What People are Saying About This

Arthur Hastings

There's no other book that pulls together so much psychological research and theory on anomalous experiences. It is amazing how much we know about these unusual experiences from scientific research, yet they still hold mysteries for us.
—Arthur Hastings, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto, California
