About the Author
James DeMeo, Ph.D., has been researching the subject of Wilhelm Reich's biophysical discoveries since 1970. Director of the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab in Ashland, Oregon, and a graduate of the University of Kansas, and formerly on the faculty of geography at several leading American universities, Dr. DeMeo is one of the world's foremost authorities on the scientific issues related to Dr. Reich's discoveries. He has replicated many of Reich's original and controversial experiments, and made personal contact and interviews with numerous medical practitioners in the USA and Europe for the development of this book. DeMeo is author also of 'Saharasia', which subjected Reich's sex-economic theories to a rigorous cross-cultural evaluation, and editor or co-editor of 'On Wilhelm Reich and Orgonomy', 'Heretic's Notebook', and the German language volume 'Nach Reich'.

And yet, in the 50+ years since Reich's death, individuals and organisations in the USA and England, health practitioners and academic institutions in Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Canada and Japan have taken a keen interest in Reich's work relating to medical, social and climate matters.
The 2007 edition of James DeMeo's book brings a selection of safe, easily-constructed, orgone devices to all those with an open and inquisitive mind and a few dollars to spare. In addition to the uses already mentioned he has provided details of his personal research relating to environment, plant and seed culture, radiation levels from cathode ray tubes, radio and TV towers, microwave emissions from radar, mobile telephone towers and yes, the microwave oven in your kitchen; in short, the issues which concern the press, politicians and all of us right now.
The Orgone Accumulator Handbook, Second Revised Edition
Good luck with the reading of the book.
Book is poorly designed. However, the design does not affect the usability of the book, and its overall value. It deserves a full 5 stars.
I first heard of the orgone accumulator when I read Jack Kerouac's hilarious '50s fictional account, On the Road (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century). The orgone accumulator of "Sal Paradise's" (Kerouac's alter ego) pal in this instance was quite a primitive one and, of course, Kerouac had inserted the device in his tale to make the orgone accumulator's owner look even "crazier" than Reich himself.
From there, on a whim, I began my orgone accumulator research which ultimately led me to The Orgone Accumulator Handbook: Construction Plans Experimental Use and Protection Against Toxic Energy because one day, I will definitely build my own personal orgone accumulator. This work contains the most up-to-date information on how to build the contraption, including technical advice on the best materials to use.
Dr. Wilhelm Reich was a former peer of the renowned Dr. Sigmund Freud (who, ironically died of cancer from having smoked one too many cigars, a life-long habit in which he refused to desist) but the two men fell out somewhere along the line. After Reich came to America, he focused upon his study of orgones which led to his Avant-garde discoveries and the invention of the device.
If you were to actually build an orgone accumulator and site it somewhere in your back yard, your neighbors would probably assert that you had constructed a diminutive-looking, space-age outhouse -- that's what a finished one looks like, albeit there's no quarter-moon cut into the door. Reich ultimately began building and selling his orgone accumulators but this act is what led to his subsequent demise.
The U.S. Government was soon alerted to Reich's "bizarre activities" and, purely for political reasons, he was criminally indicted and summoned to court. Reich foolishly ignored these summons and, through a subsequent comedy of errors on his part, he ended up being locked away in prison for nothing more heinous than having written a book! Orgone Accumulator Handbook A trivial item, Reich happened to be imprisoned alongside one David Greenglass, the brother of Ethel Rosenberg who was executed along with her husband (Julius Rosenberg) as "atomic spies," (David narrowly escaped the death penalty himself by testifying against his sister and brother-in-law. Ethel was probably also innocent of the level of crime of which she was convicted. Greenglass's recent revelations are astounding: The Brother: The Untold Story of Atomic Spy David Greenglass and How He Sent His Sister, Ethel Rosenberg, to the Electric Chair.)
Since that dubious era, numerous broad-minded individuals have constructed and tested various models of orgone accumulators, fine-tuning construction details in the process, and this worthwhile effort has produced many of the incredible medical statistics which we have today concerning the device. All you do is sit inside the thing for a prescribed amount of time each day and thus reap the health benefits.
To summarize, if I had cancer of any sort, there would be an orgone accumulator in my back yard within three days, snake oil or not! This fine book will provide you with all you need to know about how to make that happen. Highly recommended.
