David Morehouse, Ph.D. Recommended Reading for Remote ViewersI suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have gone ourselves. —E. M. Forster
An asterisk (*), indicates titles we highly recommend—this list is by no means all-inclusive. My staff and I routinely suggest additional authors and titles during lectures and seminars. Our key recommendation is for you to read about the art and science of Remote Viewing and to avoid those works comprised entirely of gossip and opinion. In order to become a better Remote Viewer, you needn’t read heavily about Remote Viewing per se, especially since most written about it thus far is pure opinion, speculation or at best one or more persons’ versions of the facts—and this includes my bestseller Psychic Warrior.
Read Psychic Warrior if you want to read a tremendous story of transformation, of sacrifice and of a family’s courage, but do not read it if you think it will teach you how to Remote View—it will not—it was never intended to be that kind of story. Psychic Warrior is my story, of my life and my experience in the military and beyond. My latest book, Remote Viewing, The Complete user’s Manual for Coordinate Remote Viewing, is the “how to” book.
If you are truly interested in becoming a skilled Remote Viewer—if you really want to understand it—you must read and develop a level of comprehension about a multitude of topics, including classic physics, quantum physics, theosophy, philosophy, psychology, personal health, bio-physics, biology, scientific theory and process, cosmology & metaphysics. What I have listed below is an adequate starting point for those serious about the art and science of Remote Viewing. I know the list is significant, and as such, you should select as the quote above infers; what you are ready for, and nothing more.
