This is one of the greatest books I’ve ever been given because it is the summary of my whole process, in English . . . accessible to most people.
Waldo Vieira, MD
Consciousness Researcher and Author, Projectiology: A Panorama of Experiences of The Consciousness Outside The Human Body; and Projections of the Consciousness
This is an important book for those who are curious about the possibility of the existence of other levels of consciousness besides that of the purely physical body. It is based on the research of Waldo Vieira which includes a very large number of personal experiences, particularly out of body experiences, collected throughout his life. Sandie Gustus is excellently placed to describe Vieira’s discoveries as she has been practicing and teaching his theories for many years and has considerable personal knowledge of a range of energetic and paranormal phenomena. The book provides practical methods for inducing out of body experiences and using them to increase our understanding of the nonphysical components of our conscious experience.

If, like me, you have not had a lucid out-of-body experience, I invite you to enjoy this compelling book that credibly argues the case for life beyond the physical body with an open mind.
Pim van Lommel, MD
Author, Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience
Sandie Gustus has written a provocative and eloquent book focused on those aspects of exceptional human experience that are often overlooked, and even derided and pathologized by mainstream science, medicine, and media. However, these accounts are ignored at society's risk because they can not help but enlarge and enrich the boundaries of the human condition.
Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University, San Francisco, CA, U.S.A.; Co-editor, Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence
Any comprehensive understanding of consciousness requires incisive tools for studying the subjective aspects of human experience. The careful and systematic assessment of out-of-body experiences described in this book comprises a valuable scientific resource for approaching this complex and difficult challenge, as well as providing a potentially productive path for self-exploration and personal growth.
Laboratory Manager, Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory; President, International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL); and co-author (with Robert Jahn) of Margins of Reality: The Role of Consciousness in the Physical World and Consciousness and the Source of Reality: The PEAR Odyssey.
About the Author
Originally from Australia, Sandie Gustus has resided in several countries and currently lives and works in Surrey in the U.K. Having spent several years in pursuit of self-knowledge, in 2001 Sandie began studying at the London office of the International Academy of Consciousness, an organization associated with the work of Waldo Vieira MD (recognized by Who's Who in the 21st Century  as one of the world's foremost researchers of the consciousness). The information and personal experiences that followed had such a profound effect on her life that she left Geneva where she was working with the United Nations and moved to London to volunteer and teach at the IAC. Sandie has published numerous articles on the out-of-body experience, bioenergy and related phenomena in the U.K. and internationally.

Less Incomplete stands apart for me on account of its attempt to solidify the experience of the OBE and the mechanisms behind it in a coherent and dogma-free framework. You won't be encountering antiquated Theosophical or occult terminology in this book. What you will find is a framework to understand the OBE and the realms one might encounter that is built upon many individuals separate experiences out of body. This gives it something of an empirical flavor that doesn't ask you to take anything at face value on account of the authority of any single individual.
You'll learn a great deal about karma in this book - "egokarma," "groupkarma," "polykarma" - and the value of the phenomenon of the OBE will be cast against the idea of "holokarma," (a sort of collective, multifaceted karma) as laid out in Less Incomplete. One major function of having an OBE, as this book argues, is to learn firsthand that we should strive to live in a "cosmoethical" manner - thus freeing ourselves of the accumulation of various undesirable forms of karma. Gustus proposes that having an OBE can diminish or eradicate one's fear of death, various spiritual misconceptions, and clarify one's life purpose (an objective thing, planned prior to being born, no less!). Additionally, the exercises presented are claimed to enable us to alleviate both our own and others emotional and mental anguish, various health-related issues, and any variety of existential hangups.
I am really astounded at how much is packed into just this one single book! There is far more than I can cover in this review and I highly suggest you take a look at the available preview to check out the Contents section. I really enjoyed reading it, and now that I have finished reading it, I am very excited to put it into practice and learn first hand.
