Product Description

From Library Journal

Reading this breezy survey of what the authors (formerly of Omni and other periodicals) term "consciousness tech" is a trip. Hooper and Teresi have personally investigated many of these mind-expansion techniques, from brain machines, dream therapies, and computer programs to goddess worship, occult schools, and magical mystery tours. Many of the summaries include interviews and quotations; addresses and bibliographies are given at the end of each. The style is lighthearted but not scoffing. Both useful and fun. (The 12-page index was not seen.)-- Jeanne S. Bagby, formerly with Tucson P.L., Ariz.

HASH(0xa7265ef4) out of 5 stars Bogus book, dont buy it! Sept. 14 2008
By J. Andrew Bentley - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've always been interested in exploring technology that enhances consciousness in our daily lives. I've studied and personally used brainwave entrainment and read about other technologies discussed in this book.

The biggest and clearest problem with this book is that its just plain old. It was written back when the contents were all fairly new and mysterious. However, after 20 some years of exploration in these technologies, this book really shows its aging, a lot!

And even if we could look past the aging of the materials covered in the book, theres still the problem with the writers style. It just reminds me way too much of a pushy salesman, creating alluring but deceptive claims that just feel intuitively more like a fantasy fiction novel than actually trying to claim legitimate and true.

After reading just the first few pages I knew this to be true, but since I bought the book I decided to give it more of a chance and look into other chapters. It only gets worse. Instead of this book trying to introduce scientifically proven technologies to enhance the consciousness, its more of a disastrous store catalog of false and unsupported claims about what the technologies "could" do.

If you're looking for a piece of old fiction to read to spark some ideas about creating your own science fiction comic or cartoon, this book is a great resource. If you are looking to truly learn about science and consciousness, avoid this book like the plague.
