The problem he has chosen to tackle is that scientists don't believe this, mostly due to the lack of serious experiments to prove or disprove the presence of such abilities. And that is mostly where my interest waned. I realize that such experiments have to measure up to rigorous criteria. Also, there need to be a multitude of studies over large numbers of subjects. Anything less will be dismissed as mere anecdotal material. So I understand his determination to prove his hypothesis by repetition and quotes from other studies than his own. But the title of the book suggests something more reader friendly,so I was disappointed, and never did finish the book. I skipped a d scanned the last third of the text.
I did like the fact that he has an extensive bibliography at the back of the book, because I went on to look at some of the books, and found them to be equally interesting. I just think he should have decided which audience he was writing for before he published.
