Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Tom Clancy meets the Psychic Friends Network in this almost plausible primer on the history, theory and practice of paranormal intelligence gathering. The author is a veteran of the Army-CIA Project STAR GATE psychic espionage unit, where he specialized in a form of ESP known as "controlled remote viewing," whose practitioners can supposedly see events from a distance in time and space. His feats, he claims, included reading Saddam's mind during the Gulf War, divining the health and prospects of the American hostages in Iran, predicting the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and remotely viewing the surface of Mars; he even wonders whether he didn't have something to do with the fall of communism. Project STAR GATE really did exist, and Buchanan's low-key tone, full of military jargon and acronyms, detailed protocols and much griping about army red tape, lends credibility to his account of life as a GI clairvoyant. Himself the head of a psychic training and consulting firm, he insists that remote viewing is both a "martial art" to be mastered through training and rote drill, and an "application-oriented science" for use in "police work, medical diagnostics and business," rather than the romantic and familial fortune-telling that is the bread and butter of the psychic industry. Skeptics will vigorously dispute Buchanan's claims for the efficacy of remote viewing, but true believers in search of government certification for their views will be greatly reassured by this odd and interesting book.

From Booklist

The more you read, the more you wonder if this expose is really a put-on. But, finally, the author, at least, seems to believe what he is saying--which is that, for the last quarter century, the U.S. military has been training personnel to provide intelligence through psychic means. Buchanan claims to have been one of the best of the government's "remote viewers." He even suggests that through subliminal messaging, he may have been partly responsible for Mikhail Gorbachev's dismantling of communism! Naturally, this is all pretty interesting stuff, and even though the organization is muddled, and the discourse tends to the paranoid, the book is temptingly wide ranging, covering everything from Buchanan's various assignments (Iranian hostage situation, Desert Storm) to how to develop one's own "seventh sense." Even though Buchanan makes it clear that this is not a "how-to," he does introduce the principles on which remote viewing is based. Whether it's the new frontier or simply far-fetched, there is no doubt that remote viewing is a hot topic in the making. Ilene Cooper

The book also contains a smaller "technical part" where the reader is introduced to the technical aspects of Remote Viewing.
Geir Laastad
The author is no-nonsense and tells you right off that it takes practice, practice, practice to improve any skill, like a martial art.
L.A.
If you seriously practice the exercises and really work hard at them,you can really see a difference in the way you percieve things.

Format: Paperback
For those unfamiliar with military remote viewing and its history, Lyn Buchanan is one of the most authoritative voices in the field. He enjoys almost universal respect among his peers in the RV community and is a founding member of the International Remote Viewing Association.
Joe McMoneagle, Viewer 001 -- the most prolific writer in the field and also well-worth reading -- once recommended only two men as RV trainers for civilians, Lyn Buchanan and Paul Smith. This list has probably expanded since Skip Atwater recently joined the former-military teaching ranks after publishing his own book, but the fact of the matter remains, Buchanan is among a tiny cadre of the elite.
The Seventh Sense adds another personal layer to the history of the military remote viewing unit under its various names, introducing you to a candid, deeply thoughtful and principled man. For those already familiar with remote viewing, a large appendix of practical tips and exercises is worth the price of the book alone, not to mention Buchanan's opinion of self-styled "Doctor Doom," euphemistically dubbed Ted.
Highly recommended. I hope Buchanan publishes more soon. Meanwhile, the Frequently Asked Questions section of his website is another terrific resource for wanna-be's, and his IRVA videos are some of the best, as well.

Dear Readers ,
Would you like to know a powerful exercise to develop your "sixth sense" and use it wherever you go, like perceiving danger or fun or maybe to identify a possible new friend ? Carefully read page 252, the Ambiance Exercise.
You are a person that has developed your psi abilities but you want to improve your accuracy/dependability rate ? Go and read page 159.
Would you like to try the first exercise every student of controlled remote viewing requires to learn and that will lead her/him to master this powerful technology ( and in the mean time will let you open the communication between your conscious and subconscious mind, safely ) ? Please read page 248...
A down-to-earth, practical and , at the same time, entertaining disclosure of what CRV is, how it was ( and is ) used and what you can do with it.......
A Mexican CRV Student

Fascinating stories about Lyn Buchanan's life experience with remote viewing. The style of writing makes you want to turn the pages to the end of the book without interruption. Informative as well as thought-provoking in an intelligent way. Raises spiritual questions. Refreshing and rivetting at the same time. Recommend for non-viewers, for those who are curious about the subject, and for those who have trained in crv.

Want to know what's possible with a trained mind? Want to know what's actually been done psychically by someone who's done it? Want to know where people go when they die by someone who has gone with them? Two of the four places they go may surprise you.
I spent a couple of fascinated hours reading about Controlled Remove Viewing. And, I have practiced a few of the exercises. They certainly improve environmental awareness.
And I learned a great deal about famous people.

First part is a good read. One can get lots of useful concepts out of. The second part, the one gives clues and exercise on how one can jump start his/her remote viewing abilities is even much more useful. The exercises might appear difficult to do, or not really effective for the skeptics, but I can attest they work. I have had quite a bit of amazing results since I was able to "reinvent the wheel", a new (little) language made of symbols that we meet in every day's life that the Universe/God/Cosmic Consciousness can use to talk back to us.

Format: Paperback
Trying to describe the process of remote viewing and how it truly works takes someone who is a gifted writer. Lyn Buchanan does just that in a very masterful way. Many who read this book go on to study Controlled Remote Viewing with Lyn's company, P>S>I and find that his claims in the book are not fabricated, but easily replicated in a lab setting. While Remote Viewing in and of itself can be considered very abstract, Lyn Buchanan expresses the nuances and brain processes of it in a very clear way. Although other military men participated in this project, Lyn Buchanan seems to have the best grasp of what remote viewing truly is and what can be done with it. I highly recommend the book -- it is a great read.

Read it even while walking the dog. This book is an excellent overview of one pioneer's experiences. It is good for beginners who wonder what this is all about and also for experienced remote viewers who will be able to glean a bit more about techniques used in higher (non-taught) Stages. I have learned that I am not made of "the right stuff" for advanced remote viewing; it is a "martial art". But if I were to venture further into this wondrous world, I would want Lyn Buchanan for my guide.

Format: Paperback
The Author writes beautifully and this book really gives you an insight into his remote viewing experiences and thinking. Its not as historically or factually heavy as some on the scene but its a fantastic ride to hear one of the military psychic spies tell of his personal experiences in a way that makes you feel as though the dialogue is personal with you the reader.

I found this to be an enjoyable, inspirational book in a field where most of the books can be dry and soulless. A very welcome addition to my remote viewing library.
