A few weeks later we had a Skype conversation in which he expressed profound gratitude for the gift of the book.

It's worth considering that thoughtful people don't read books about controversial subjects unless there's REALLY something in it for them.

What's most significant in his work, especially in this book, is his lucid instruction in the hands-on method of remote viewing.

Simply a fabulous book! A spine-tingler showing the awesome tools available to those who would dedicate themselves, as well as the stunning research experiences of those who have succeeded in remote viewing. This book can also be for people willing to consider they have a human birthright they might not understand, but can still use and respect.

The techniques Schwartz suggests for remote viewing are elegantly simple. The research he discusses is fascinating. Schwartz is as conscientious a researcher as you'll find anywhere, anytime. His first books were excellent reads which chronicled important things few people had the courage to even discuss. This fourth book has those same shining qualities, founded by the longer life experience of a man who has done what he teaches.

Thinking about what other Amazon reviewers have written, I didn't find many references to the personal experiences they MUST have had, which propelled them to a state of mind where they wanted Schwartz's adventurous road maps. It's worth considering that thoughtful people don't read books about controversial subjects unless there's REALLY something in it for them.

Since the perceptions of the "reporter" must always be considered: in college I began looking at life from the perspective of science. I love the way the world is put together and that was my window. I showed myself I was given to the practicalities of repeatable adventures. But the more I delved into science I began to accept and use the other half of what moves the world -- people's motivations and perceptions. So I gravitated toward religion and blended the seen with the unseen.

I loved reading Stephan Schwartz' new book, 'Opening to the Infinite, and I passed my copy along to a friend who was returning to his agave ranch in Oaxaca, Mexico. A few weeks later we had a Skype conversation in which he expressed profound gratitude for the gift of the book. He is a lifelong 'grounded-in-3D' skeptic and it helped him to open up to the greater part of ourselves that is grounded in the vastness of consciousness.

Opening to the Infinite is filled with great stories of Stephan's 45 years of experience in the field of consciousness and tons of research from his remote viewing experiements. It's fun to read, extremely knowledgable, and a true 'guy book' about the next frontier. Of course, women will like it too. If you liked Indiana Jones you certainly will.

Leave your psychic party hats at home and prepare for the real story from America's most rational scientific studies, and, arguably our best writer on the subject, Stephan A. Schwartz. "Opening to the Infinite" is sure to be pronounced the "Essential" read when it comes to remote viewing and nonlocal awareness. Clear, accessable language, straightforward directions, great background.

I have read other books on remote viewing but found Opening to the Infinite the most complete and informative. I especially enjoyed the segment on dreaming. I highly recommend this book and its wise author.

Stephan A. Schwartz is a remarkable veteran of the discipline now known as remote viewing. He writes of his findings in clear prose, illustrated with handy photos and diagrams. I was especially impressed by his report on the RV session with neophyte viewers, on November 3, 2003, that generated a highly accurate consensus description of the future capture of Saddam Hussein, six weeks before "Operation Red Dawn" troops pulled him, disheveled and bearded and dispirited, from a hole in the ground near his home town of Tikrit.

Some quantum theorists disagree with the model of psychic nonlocality Schwartz advances, bu theorists have been wrong before. What's most significant in his work, especially in this book, is his lucid instruction in the hands-on method of remote viewing. You can try this safely at home, folks. Be grateful that the CIA closed down the secret US program in remote viewing... (or did they?).

I just finished this book and it engaged me from beginning to end. Stephan Schwartz knows what he is doing and has done it for decades as this book clearly shows. His writing is easy to read and he tells his story like the master story teller that he is.

If you want to know about remote viewing, especially, this is the place to come. I respect him for taking what must be a controversial subject, and covering it in a way that I can appreciate and enjoy while still not being asked to suspend belief.

Bravo, Stephan Schwartz, for an outstanding new work.

This book is the best bet for an average folk ,like myself, to try some experimentation into remote viewing. Schwartz lays out pretty darn good maps to explore ones own counciousness.

An important explanation of the most exciting research showing the way forward for humanity. The clear scientific background, lucidly laid out, brings this under-explored area of human development into the reach of all of us. Surely as many of us as possible should be opening ourselves to such a potentially powerful tool.

More About the Author

Stephan A. Schwartz is a Senior Fellow in the Brain, Mind, and Healing Program at the Samueli Institute. He has spent a lifetime of work focused on exceptional human performance, particularly involving aspects of consciousness. Mr. Schwartz' experimental work began in 1973, when he wrote his first book, The Secret Vaults of Time, a survey of all the research done using the non-local aspect of the mind to locate and reconstruct archaeological sites. Considered one of the founders of Remote Viewing, Mr. Schwartz became Senior Fellow of the Philosophical Research Society in 1976, where he carried out the Deep Quest submarine study, one of the milestone experiments in parapsychology, establishing that nonlocal performance was not an electromagnetic phenomenon. After founding the Mobius Society where he was the Research Director and Board Chairman for the next 17 years, Mr. Schwartz carried out many experimental studies focusing on three main research areas: remote viewing, therapeutic intention, and non-local awareness and its relationship to genius, religious epiphanies, and personality types. From this experimental research he has slowly developed a model for the various kinds of observed nonlocal functioning being an informational process. Seeking to change the materialist reductionism that defined science, Mr. Schwartz co-founded the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness (SAC), now a unit in the American Anthropological Association, the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM), and the International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA), while starting the peer-reviewed journals Phoenix and Subtle Energies. After leaving the Mobius Society, Mr. Schwartz has pursued his experimental and theoretical work as a Research Associate of the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory of The Laboratories for Fundamental Research, as Director of Research at the Rhine Research Center, as a BIAL Fellow, and as a Scholar-in-Residence at Atlantic University. He is currently a member of the Parapsychological Association, as well as its spokesperson, and founder and member of International Remote Viewing Association. Additionally, he is the columnist for the peer-reviewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing, and editor of the daily web publication The Schwartzreport. He is the author of four books, The Secret Vaults of Time, The Alexandria Project, Mind Rover and, most recently, Opening to the Infinite. He has published over 90 papers in peer-reviewed publications and technical reports, and is a listee in Who's Who in America.
