When you discover the world is a computer program, and you figure out that by altering the code you can time travel and perform acts that seem like magic, what can possibly go wrong? Pretty much everything. Just ask Brit, who has jumped around in time with such abandon that she has to coexist with multiple versions of herself. Now, Brit the Elder finds that her memories don't match Brit the Younger's.

This book should have been called 'Britt the intolerable bitch'. I get that she is complicated given her unique situation... she just made me feel annoyed which ruined it for me.

It is possible that this book may be the absolute truth - yet another product of the incredible powers of the holy men of the Himalayas, who are said to have projected their reincarnations into the hilly areas of America, to avoid the holocaust brought by the Chinese to Tibet? Could we, as a nation, be ignoring one of the greatest gifts we have ever received?

T. Lobsang Rampa was preordained to be a Tibetan priest, a sign from the stars that could not be ignored. When he left his wealthy home to enter the monastery, his heart was filled with trepidation, with only a slight knowledge of the rigorous spiritual training and physical ordeal that awaited him. This is his story, a hauntingly beautiful and deeply inspiring journey of awakening within Chakpori Lamasery, the temple of Tibetan medicine.

It's hard to imagine a West Country non-initiate knowing so much detail. The story he painted is so vivid that it begs further research.

Like a stupid DVD box set, you're subjected to the red dwarf music at the start and end of each chapter. I don't hate the music but don't want to hear it in an audio book. I don't want any music in any audio book. Why do it? Why ruin a perfectly good story with a crappy interlude, it's not as if you're going to take the opportunity to quickly dash out and buy one of those stupid potted ice creams. Pointless.

I don't pretend to understand all of what was said nor do I believe the parts I did. A stunning, thought provoking and sometimes sad book.

Can't wait for 2&3.

His intelligence collection results have never been surpassed and rarely equaled. Among his achievements: He described the interior of a top-secret Soviet manufacturing plant and accurately predicted a new class of submarine under construction there.

I have learned much of the history of RV via IRVA and those individuals that are products of Ingo Swann's training, directly and indirectly.

I've heard Skip Atwater talk about Joe and the ERV methodology including time at the Monroe institute, but this is the first time I've been made aware of the differences between various camps from Joe's perspective.

Joe has mapped out his life's journey from childhood through marriages and his army career to retirement and independent consultant. The story is told simply and doesn't hold back.

Good choice of narrator.
