Editorial Reviews

Review

"In my opinion, if one were to buy a book about PK, this is the most important one." Rhea White -- Journal of Parapsychology, Fall 2004

An excellent book for non-academics. -- Fate Magazine, June 2004

Heath's presentations of PK (and ESP) phenomena will fascinate the reader. Part I has many sections that are particularly absorbing. -- The Australian Journal of Parapsychology, June 2004

From the Author

This book took about 4 years of my life to write and covered the formal experimental research from the late 1800s to 2000. It was pulled from print in January 2009 to make way for a newer, updated and expanded version of the material called "Mind-Matter Interaction: Historical Reports, Research and Theory" (published with McFarland and available from Amazon), which came out in March 2011.

More About the Author

Pamela Rae Heath has an MD from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and practiced Anesthesiology at a variety of locations before she began having spontaneous psychic experiences. This led to her returning to graduate school for a second doctorate degree (Psy.D.) with a dual specialization in parapsychology and hypnosis. Her dissertation was on mind-matter interaction (also known as psychokinesis).

Dr. Heath is a member of the Parapsychological Association, the Society for Psychical Research, and the Society for Scientific Exploration. She has published in peer-reviewed journals and appeared on a variety of radio and TV shows.

Format: Paperback
This is by far the most comprehensive study of psychokinesis that I have come across. The author, despite being an academic, writes in an easy manner that makes the book a joy to read. The book starts with PK through the ages, covering such areas as levitation, stigmata, teleportation, bilocation, fire immunity, mediumship, psychic healing and poltergeists. She provides a wealth of examples, all of which are fully referenced. The first section covers anecdotal evidence. The second section covers the research that has been done in these areas over the last century, and the theory behind psychokinesis. The third section covers experiential research which is intended to explain the significance of PK. What I particularly liked about this section is that each topic is divided into three subsections: what the literature says, how it relates to the other constituents, and a summary. I found it helpful to read the summary first, as this gave me a clear idea as to what was going to be covered under the specific topic. The book contains a comprehensive glossary, references, and index.

I wish "The PK Zone" had been written twenty years ago, as it would have saved me an incredible amount of time and energy. Virtually everything that anyone would want to know about the subject is in this book. I recommend it to anyone with even the slightest interest in the subject. Beginners will gain a comprehensive picture of psychokinesis, and more knowledgeable readers will learn much that is new to them.

Format: Paperback
THE PK ZONE is an amazing work of research and investigation into mind over matter (psychokinesis). Never has a book gone as deeply into both the research and experience of a psychic ability as this one. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants any kind of understanding of how the mind can reach out and interact with the world around us.
My own book, MIND OVER MATTER, is a survey of the ways the mind interacts with physical reality. THE PK ZONE goes further, and is for anyone who wants a much deeper understanding of where the research has been and its current state of the art, and (more importantly) what it's like for people to experience PK themselves.
Buy this book if you're at all interested in the paranormal and psychic abilities (and of course, psychokinesis specifically).

Format: Paperback
I have read this book and I salute this author for her ambitious and remarkable undertaking. As far as I know, no one else has ever attempted or succeded in writing or publishing such a comprehensive and scientific compilation of what is known about psychokinesis. This is no fluff-bunny book, but a serious work that is both easy to read and worth your time. It belongs on the shelves of all who really wonder about the mysteries of this world and are tired of just a collection of second or third hand stories. After reading this volume I look forward to the next subject this author tackles. Buy it.
