Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"In PSI Spies, Jim Marrs has provided the original report on the U.S. Army's use of psychic remote viewing as an intelligence tool. Here's how military remote viewing got its start."
--Whitley Strieber, author of Communion and The Grays

"PSI Spies is one of the best books ever written about the U.S. government's top-secret psychic warfare unit. Marrs introduces us to all involved in this covert project and gives a detailed view of the benefits and limitations of applied remote viewing. I highly recommend it."
--Simeon Hein, Ph.D., author of Opening Minds

As usual, Jim Marrs has given us another classic. Whether you are interested in government conspiracy, aliens, ufo's or any other mystery of the new millennium Jim Marrs has the FACTS. Being an investigative reporter and not simply an author Jim doesn't just write about a subject, he documents it and explains it with all the detail and clarity of the expert that he is. I have read everything by Marrs and I can say this, after being in police work for the last twenty-five years, the last twelve as Chief of Detectives, Marrs does his homework. He is the most thorough and comprehensive author of esoteric and controversial subject matter writing on the subject today. If after reading any of his books, the hair on the back of your neck doesn't stand up, you must be reading the another book that slipped into a Jim Marrs book jacket. When I first started reading his work, like most people interested in the subjects (At least most police officers) I dug a little further. His facts and his research stand up to the scrutiny. I had the fortunate experience to become involved with a few of the military remote viewers when the Stargate project became public. I had taken the training and (once again the skeptic that I am) experienced it for myself. I heard some of the same stories, anecdotes and information that Marrs details in "PSI SPIES." I cannot recommend his work with any higher regard. He is a master at the craft of writing and an expert researcher. There are other books written about the Psychic Spying program that the Government ran, Marrs tells the story from the inside out --- He is by far the most knowledgeable person on the subject matter that wasn't actually a military remote viewer himself. BUY THIS BOOK!

'Remote Viewing' is the term used to describe a psychic or paranormal ability to see places and events far removed from the normal line of physical sight. This would such psychically gifted men and women the perfect reconnaissance and information gatherers on an enemy's operations. In short, it would make them the perfect spy. What is not generally known is that the Russians during the height of the Cold War tried to develop a remote viewing program. When the American military discovered this, they embarked on a similar program. Award-winning journalist Jim Marrs lays out the entire story of this little known aspect to the Cold War confrontation between the Russians and the Americans in "Psi Spies: The True Story Of America's Psychic Warfare Program". He reveals how the U.S. Army trained men and women to try to psychically access secrets of Soviet command centers, missile complexes, biological warfare centers -- even the Kremlin itself. Also included are the stories of how skilled remote viewers learned about the fate of the Mars Observer that was 'lost' as it entered orbit around Mars; gained knowledge of a series of mysteries (the most prominent of which was the assassination of President John F. Kennedy); and even applying remote viewing to the legendary Loch Ness Monster. Of special note are the tips on how the reader can develop remote viewing abilities themselves! "Psi Spies" is a deftly written, thoroughly fascinating, informed and informative reading recommended for anyone with an interest in Metaphysical Studies and 20th Century American Military History.

Jim Marrs is a cottage industry when it comes to conspiracy writings.
He has dealt with the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He has explored the behind-the-scenes histories and tinkerings of secret societies in their collective bid to control the fate of the planet. He has even given one fine comprehensive examination to the entire UFO phenomenon that will probably go unmatched in the history of UFO books.
In PSI SPIES, he deals with exposing the United States government's covert use of psychic powers (largely remote viewing) in the exploration of handling foreign affairs. While it's not a truly great book (I thought it lacked some of the depth of his other tomes, and that's largely due to the scraps of true facts and research available on the subject), it is still one fine piece of investigative journalism.
It's an important read if for no other reason for the reader to understand -- through the eyes of one of the book's principals -- to what extend a government is willing to reach ... and then attempt everything possible to cover it up in the end.
Incidentally, the book probably would've been far more in depth had the US Government not gone to attempting to keep it unpublished. Marrs has a way of tilting the scales in the direction of truth, so much so that he disturbs those secretly in power, and his books do rattle you to the bones in several places.
A must-read for conspiracy fans. A must-read for fans of the occult, in fact. And, a must-read for any person seriously interested in knowing the tentacles which clandestine operations try to grasp control of our very lives.

If you have ever had any doubts about the U.S. Government's use, and continued use, of intelligence gathering techniques that are officially discredited and disparaged, then read this book.

For the most part I like the stuff Jim Marrs turns out, and this book is unquestionably better than Alien Agenda. This book is an intriguing and somewhat disturbing story of the government's efforts to develop remote viewing into an espionage tool during the cold war.

Mr. Marrs documents many successes of remote viewing even though the government never really appears to have fully accepted remote viewing's utility. The RV program proved to be successful enough to convince most of the remote viewers that participated in the program of its effectiveness, to the extent that they stayed in the field in their private lives, many to this day.

Mr. Marrs presents a convincing argument that remote viewing really works, until one takes a critical look at bozos like Major Ed Dames, and then one wonders if Mr. Marrs is really telling the whole story.

Anyway, I liked the book and I would highly recommend it to those interested in the subject matter.
