Putoff and Targ were among the first scientists to put anomalous cognition under the scientific spotlight. Through their work at SRI, remote viewing became a reproducible phenomenon in scientific laboratories. In reading this book I gained a more intimate knowledge of those exciting early days. It comes across on a personal and honest recounting of their experiences and experiments, and the people they worked with (within the limits of military program secrecy obligations they were under at the time).

This book is certainly a valuable library addition for anyone seriously interested in the historical roots and facts concerning remote viewing.

This is the most expansive and far reaching Remote Viewing book ever written. Russell Targ draws on an absolutely amazing career that spans the dimensions of thought. Mind-Reach redefines cutting egde. Within the borders of this book is the story of remote-viewing at its most intimate and deep regions. Russell has truly championed the peaceful use of psychic energy. I thank Russell for his continued honest approach to exposing, allowing for universal discovery and exemplifying true transparency in the remote viewing arena. I highly suggest to the amazon readers out there to get all of Russell's other books as well. His daughter, the late Elisabeth Targ was and continues to be a true pioneer as well and continues to work from the other side to further the exploration of conciousness. Elisabeth's spirit shines brightly and lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone she touched.

Margaret Mead says:

"This is a clear, straightforward account of a set of successful experiments that demonstrate the existence of 'remote viewing,' a hitherto unvalidated human capacity."

This book is a lucid and fascinating record of historic experiments-historic because they put the seal of "hard" physical science upon evidence that some degree of psychic ability is universal-a phenomenon straight out of science fiction that actually happened, and can be made to happen again in any laboratory! The scientists even offer a "recipe" for developing your own ESP "information channel."

Richard Bach of Jonathan Livingston Seagull fame, who served as a subject, writes: "It's too late now to burn their files; what they've found is already being duplicated and expanded in laboratories around the world. As I am coming to know more of the powers that I have, so are thousands of others, so will the readers of this book."

The Targ-Puthoff "mind-reach" experiments at Stanford Research Institute were the subject of unprecedented articles in the international journal of science, Nature and in the prestigious Proceedings of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, whose editors comment, in part: "One of the engineers we consulted said, 'This is the kind of thing that I would not believe in even if it existed.' In any event, the paper itself may be the most readable ever published in this journal and few readers will finish without wondering...if indeed ESP might be possible after all."

As The New York Times wrote, in an editorial quoting in part from Nature's editors: "The scientific community has been put on notice 'that there is something worthy of their attention and scrutiny' in the possibilities of extra-sensory perception."

Russel Targ, and Harold Puthoff, PhD Physicists, (Targ was former chief scientist at Lockheed) has some things to tell you that will change your world like it did his...and hundreds of thousands of other people. If you show respect to what he has to say in this book, you will eventually arrive at a point where I am now....not just a believer, but a DOER of incredible things. What is that? Go find out for yourself! It is the most amazing reality you can ever discover! They started a revolution in mind science that staggers the ability to perceive.

I am so happy that I read this book! Puthoff and Targ really packed an incredible amount of in-depth, tantalizing information in this short read. At only about 225 pages, it is amazing how many different topics they cover, from Ingo Swan and Remote Viewing (which Mr. Swann and they basically pioneered), to their work with Uri Geller, and on to various other dimensions of this fascinating world of science and the "paranormal." Makes for very entertaining and intelligent reading. What a blessing it's back in print!

This book is fascinating in its scientific approach to abilities all humans have the capability of developing. Even though there are some people which have a natural tendency towards this talent. It was written several years ago, but it is relevant today.

Targ is a scholar of a difficult field of research, but makes the case that psi is happening in many ways for many people.My skepticism was put on hold from scholarly research like this.Something interesting is happening.
