A century ago a book such as this would have been a call to the barricades. Today with the state as powerful as it is, this book simply makes you want to leave the United States and let it rot.
For those who haven't read the book, O'Brien's story is one of a survivor of a CIA-sponsored program called MK Ultra, which aimed to explore the limits of human "suggestibility." The program began following World War II, when numerous top Nazi scientists resettled in the United States, at the invitation of the CIA, to continue their research into mind control. The project was based upon the research finding that if a person is severely traumatized, he or she will "split" off a "multiple personality" as a defense mechanism. It was those "multiples" that CIA scientists sought (successfully) to "program." Today thousand of people exist as mind-controlled slaves whose "programs" for various activities, such as performance in pornography films, prostitution, message carrying, and drug "muling," can be "accessed" by their "controllers" by cryptic keywords.
A reader curious about O'Brien's book should be forewarned of the exceptionally bizarre nature of its revelations. In fact, at least in my view, the revelations are so bizarre, it would probably be a bad move to read this book without first reading something that "builds" up to it. A good primer on the subject would be John Decamp's _The Franklin Cover-Up_.
Those who do read the book and are of sufficient independent thought to see through the haze of disinformation put forward every day by the state-influenced newspapers and magazines and see the truth in O'Brien's book are placed in a difficult position.

I hope this book will reach as many Americans as possible! I had to read this in "small doses" as I am sure many others who read it did. To know that our leaders, the people we all "thought" we elected to serve and protect us, are such a breed of dispicable, perverse animals that they would abuse young children. We are nothing but a bunch of "Sheeple" being led around and lied to each day by the media, controlled by the big boys! Just think, our lives are being controlled by the food we eat, the water we drink, the lies on television, and even the air we breathe. We need to wake up and know that our children and grandchildren are at risk. The controlled education they receive in public schools, the vaccinations they get and it never ends. I wish I could sit down and talk with Cathy and Mark, the authors of the book, to learn more of what goes on behind the scenes in our government. If you are weak of heart, you can't digest this book....but if you are a brave one knowing you are living in a Brave New World.....please read this book. I remember when Bush, Sr. was president, he talked about the NWO....well...folks....it is here and now....

I knew Cathy O'Brien as a fellow government mind-control victim in the more distant past. We briefly reconnected in the mid-90s when I was encouraged to hire her common-law-husband, Mark Phillips, to deprogram my mind. Although my subsequent experiences with him were very negative and unhealthy, I am reasonably certain that the majority of Cathy's recollections in Trance Formation are probably valid. By using numerous personal examples, she does an excellent job of explaining how trauma, hypnosis, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (metaphorical language) are effectively used by expert mind-control perpetrators to dissociate and control the minds of victims - from childhood on through adulthood. Because I waited until I'd remembered the bulk of my own traumatic experiences before reading her book, I successfully avoided memory contamination. Having journaled thousands of emerging memories, I was quite surprised that many of the phrases - containing metaphorical, double-meanings (NLP) - that had been used to control my mind, were exactly the same ones that she'd remembered! (My memories didn't come from Mark; I'd remembered and journaled most of them before hiring him.) Regardless of the identities of the alleged perpetrators whom Cathy names, the information that she provides about the use of mind-control "language" (combined Eriksonian hypnosis and NLP) can be very helpful for professionals working with mind-control survivors - if nothing else, as a translation guide. I would not use the book for more than that, however.Read more ›

The Tranceformation of America is a shocking book, but one which, I have to believe, contains much truth. I saw and experienced much of that sort of thing (not to the same degree) in Massachusetts during the Reagan/Bush years. I saw high-level academic, media, political and church figures engaged in a collusive sexual abuse, exploitation, manipulation (terror) network, which included voyeurism, surveillance, twisting of information, lying and slander, pillage and even worse (if they could get away with it). I have to believe that actual slavery, abuse of children, indulgences on every level, and crime (as described in this book) are true. Those who - through the media - project themselves as being the most respected are, in fact, the most wicked. What is especially timely about this book is that Ms. O'Brien mentions George Bush Sr. and Jr. repeatedly, and we are facing an election with George Bush Jr. If the American public were to read this book, they would never let him into office. According to Ms. O'Brien, he participated in - and covered for his father in - mind-control activities, abuse of adolescent females, implementation of New World Order police tactics (Lake/Mount Shasta compound in California), cocaine, heroin and white slavery trafficking, and money laundering. He was an integral part of the New World Order plan of creating chaos and mass mind control to dupe the masses, so as to usher in elite rule. One has to question how he could be spontaneously declared the front-runner and pick of the Republican establishment from day one, when he had done nothing. Was it because he will facilitate their excesses and wrongdoing - because he's their man??? It is very frightening territory - and this is a frightening book.Read more ›
