Ekstasy: Out-of-the-Body Experiences

Black, David

 An out-of-body experience is one in which a person's "I" views his/her body as if it were separate from and outside it. Black, a free-lance writer, though skeptical, became intrigued by accounts of such experiences which he kept running into and which he finally decided to investigate. This book is the result of his excursions into the literature of the subject as well as interviews with persons who feel they have experienced out-of-body experiences (OBEs), and with sensitives, such as Blue (now Keith) Harary and Robert Monroe, who feel they can control their OBEs. Black also conducted interviews with the parapsychologists and others chiefly engaged in OBE research (Lilly, Morris, Noyes, Osis, Roll, Tart). He also attempts to deal with the theories that have been offered to account for OBEs. A valuable 22-page bibliography lists nearly all of the books and articles of relevance to the study of OBEs, both technical and popular.
