Format: Paperback
I read this book years ago, when I was only about 12 years old. Monroe's experiences are intriguing, and have influenced me to this day. He writes about mystical experiences (as another reviewer wrote, in a very non-spiritual way). Sometimes, I will admit, Monroe can be somewhat dry, but he doesn't fill his book with pages of unnecessary words like some writers do. Monroe treats what some people would call "lucid dreams" or "astral projections," as if they could really be journeys out of the body in THIS world, almost as if he were a ghost. (Occultists would call this the etheral body). For example, he writes that he obtained knowledge of things in the physical world, that he couldn't have possibly known if his experiences didn't actually take him to real places.
Years after reading this book, I experienced some of the things Monroe wrote about were true to my own life. Not until a first-person experience did I understand what Monroe meant by "vibrations" (the first step toward an out of body experience). Monroe is classic reading on this topic, and I recommend "Journeys Out of the Body" to anyone interested in such things.

This is not the best book on OBE's. The value of the book is Monroe's descriptions of his process and the effects that they had on his life contextualized in the times that they occured. The reader should realize that Monroe later changed most of his conclusions about his perceptions once he had more experience and understanding of the OBE process. I recommend that his second book, Far Journey's, be read before reading this book. That will allow the reader to discount the perceptions that Monroe changed.

Format: Paperback
I was only 17 years old when I first read this book, I had a keen interest in the occult from a very early age much to the dismay of my parents but was becoming rather disheartened with the whole thing, so many questions and very few if any, concrete answers. I am now 33 years old and still cannot forget the overall impact this book and it's author had on my life and my religious understanding. I found this book covered in dust in the back of a friends car 16 years ago and they said I could borrow it. I read it cover to cover, over and over again, it really fascinated me, there was defiantly something different about the way the author conveyed his experiences, somehow you new these things were really happening to him just as he described them and I suppose I must have willed my first out of body experience which started as a very normal dream. I stumbled and knocked my head in this dream which I suppose triggered something.
Suddenly there was a very loud whistling and crackling sound in my ears and a rush of consciousness and I stood up in my dream more awake than I had ever felt before, everything that had been present in my dream was still there, buildings, streets and gardens, none of which I recognised. What the hell was going on? I remember the shire disbelief and shock that this was actually happening to me, I was wide awake in a dream, conscious of all my faculties and able to make conscious decisions about where I would go and what I would do, although something attached to me from behind was definitely pulling me back as if I was wading through Ink. I clearly remember looking down at the clothes I was wearing and then at my hands, I got really scared at that point because I thought I had died in my sleep.

Format: Paperback
Bob was bewildered the first time an out of the body experience happened to him. He thought he was going crazy.

After he developed the skill to the point where he could do it at will, he eventually met Dr Charles Tart, in the early 1960's, then at the University of Virginia, Parapsychology Dept. Tart would have a computer generate a random 6 digit number, display it on a display ten feet up in the air (that no one could see). Monroe would leave his body, go up read the number, come back and tell Charlie Tart what the number was!
A real controlled experiment. Over and over. (

This is documented in Tart's groundbreaking classic book on parapsychology, "Altered States of Consciousness".

Later, Bob, with various guidance and a lot of experimentation on himself and various gifted others, discovered a technology, Hemisync, to allow people to experience this themselves. Even scoffers and skeptics.

Yes, there is the The Monroe Institute hidden in the hills of Virginia. Yes, the best way to learn this stuff is to ante up and go there. Beyond that, buying each of the Gateway series, starting with "Discovery", from TMI and a great deal of practice is the best way to learn. You get out of it what you put in. Frankly, most people are idly curious but also too fearful, superstitious or lazy to get anywhere. But for those few who persevere, it is life-altering. Practice, practice, practice.

I don't think this is his best book, he changed his mind as he went along, but you need to read this to have a clue about the later ones. I would also recommend Far Journeys and Ultimate Journey.

Bob... died in 1995, in a world of phonies, he remains an OOBE authentic, a friend and a pathfinder.
