This book provides background and explanatory information helpful in understanding Robert Monroe's writings. The first few chapters are difficult to get through, as the information on Monroe's family (especially the name changes) isn't clear. The rest of the book provides useful information supplementing and clarifying the history of the Monroe Institute and the personal characteristics of Robert Monroe that tended to reduce his effectiveness and that of the institute. I would recommend reading Monroe himself before tackling this, as the ambiguity and inconsistency here gets in the way of understanding the original work.

I watched some videos of Robert Monroe on Youtube and was curious to know more about him. This book answered all my questions, and then some.

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.

Having known Robert Monroe for many years, I can say this was the best biography of Monroe I could have imagined anyone writing. The research and reporting are impeccable. Ronald Russell has truly captured the fascinating life and world of Robert Monroe. This is a "Must Read" for any Journey Out-of-Body fans.

This book fills in the gap of Robert Monroe's history that I never knew. Having been to The Monroe Institute twice, I have always wondered how everything came together and how Bob got it there. After having read this book, I feel like I have a greater sense of who Bob Monroe was and also a greater appreciation for the legacy he left behind.

I find Robert Monroe to be an interesting character, and I wanted to find out more about him. I expected this book to be a bit dry after reading some of the reviews on here, but it turned out to be a great read. I couldn't put it down. I'm not sure how fair this assessment is of Monroe's life, but it certainly makes him seem very human.

I have read the three books written by Robert Monroe and reading this book gave him more credibility in my view. Some of his "out of body " explorations and their descriptions can seem a little beyond belief but this biography helped me understand him as a pioneer and thoughtful researcher in the field.

After finishing this book I felt as if the author presented less that a full
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.

I learned much more about Monroes life than from the books he had written. It was very good information about family life and events.
