Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

When word got out in 1995 that the U.S. Defense Department and CIA had funded efforts to read people's minds, the news understandably excited all sorts of derision and conspiracy theories. Who would imagine that the story behind the efforts is actually a fascinating tale about the possibilities of human potential? Paul H. Smith tells the story of the U.S. "psychic spying" program in his book Reading the Enemy's Mind. Smith doesn't come across as some flaky new-ager. He was a young U.S. Army intelligence officer and Arab linguist who had no previous interest in extra-sensory perception when he was recruited into the program code-named "Star Gate" in 1983. Over the next seven years, he became one of the army's premier "remote viewers" and the primary author of its training manual on the subject. He also served as a tactical intelligence officer in the 101st Airborne Division in Operation Desert Storm/Shield and got a Master's degree from the Defense Intelligence College.

In Reading the Enemy's Mind, Smith reveals that the military and intelligence communities performed hundreds of experiments and operational intelligence assignments using "remote viewing," the government's term for ESP. The program's first big success came in 1979 when a viewer found a downed Soviet bomber in Africa after other intelligence operatives had failed--a coup praised by President Jimmy Carter. The psychics received target assignments from virtually every U.S. national-security agency, and Smith says they produced numerous positive results. Smith's biggest revelation, however, is that the government research found that almost all people--not merely a gifted few--seem to have the potential of developing ESP skills, with enough practice and a few tips from a pro like Smith. Many readers will no doubt find it hard to know what to make of Reading the Enemy's Mind and whether to believe any of it, but Smith writes with both color and a measured tone that together produce a captivating yarn even for the non-believers out there. --Alex Roslin

Review

“One of the most important books about human potential you’ll ever
read.”--George Noory, host of Coast to Coast AM, Premiere Radio on Reading the Enemy's Mind
“The more pragmatic you think you are, the more you should read this fascinating book. It illustrates with unmistakably real examples just how effective psychic espionage can be, and offers tremendous hope for the future.”---Col. Walter J. Boyne (USAF, ret.), New York Times bestselling author of The Wild Blue

“At last, a hard-hitting, comprehensive insider’s view of the Star Gate program. Paul H. Smith names names and provides a much-needed unique and unvarnished history lesson. It is a must read for everyone interested in remote viewing.”--Colonel John B. Alexander, US Army (Ret.), author of Winning the War: Advanced Weapons, Strategies, and Concepts for the Post-9/11 World on Reading the Enemy's Mind

“So you thought the CIA was microwaving messages into your fillings. Boy, were you naïve. They don’t need black helicopters or microwave mind snatchers or psychotropic drugs. All they need is Paul H. Smith. He will do it all himself. Smith’s nonfiction The Manchurian Candidate will make mind readers of us all!”--David Hagberg, USA Today bestselling author of Soldier of God on Reading the Enemy's Mind

“Star Gate warrior Major Paul H. Smith gives us an up-close-and-personal look behind the scenes of the government’s psychic spy program as only an insider can. A must read!”---Harold E. Puthoff, Ph.D., founder and former director of Stanford Research Institute’s CIA-initiated Remote Viewing Program on Reading the Enemy's Mind

"I have covered the CIA since before its inception--back when it was still the OSS--and I thought I knew everything about it. Paul Smith opened my eyes to the most electrifying, inside-the-CIA expose ever. I was worried about the Company reading our mail. I was naive. I should have feared them reading our minds!"--Jack Anderson, Pulitzer-Prize journalist on Reading the Enemy's Mind
