Here are some excerpts from the book:
"In recent decades, consciousness has come to the fore as one of the great problems confronting Western science and philosophy. The attempt to explain consciousness has developed into a sort of academic business, with professorships and lectureships accumulating and publications multiplying year after year." (p. 338)
"Monroe's reading did not include books on the scientific study of consciousness. His conversational approach in his writings and talks is devoid of the weighty vocabulary of academia. He was an explorer, not a theorist, and, certainly to begin with, he had no clear idea as to where his explorations might lead. [...] It took much courage to move forward, leaving security and certainty behind." (p. 347)
The biography is objective and deals frankly with some of Monroe's less admirable personality traits. On the negative side, the writing is not great.
picture of the man. I'm hoping that in the future, there will be a book
that comes out with more objectivity. I want to know what he really felt
about his journys, and what he still hoped to discover.

This guy is a true explorer. A must read for all searching for information.
He wrote other books. They are all excellent.
What I was interested in was the method, not Monroe's life. Perhaps the bio will help someone who wants a better indication that Monroe wasn't just a whacko, but it doesn't do... Read morePublished on December 9, 2012 by Amazon Customer
