Review quote

"You will certainly never take the miracle of the senses for granted again" -- Dr James Le Fanu The Tablet "Sheldrake uses many case studies, along with scientific theory, to support his research, and the result is, quite literally, mind-expanding" The Good Book Guide "Dr Rupert Sheldrake continues to chart a new course in our understanding ...The application of this understanding has the potential to heal our world" -- Deepak Chopra, M.D. "[Sheldrake's] genius lies in his taking well-attested anecdotal phenomena like telepathy, the sense of being stared at and anticipating alarm calls, then puts them to the scientific test. In doing so his work not only extends - indeed stretches - the mind, it extends science in a new and creative direction." David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review
