In Doubleday published a book called Journeys Out of the Body , a Virginia businessman's memoir of his weird and wonderful adventures on other planes of reality. That book, which has sold more than a million copies, and that man, Robert Monroe, helped cement the concept of astral travel into the American psyche and made the "out-of-body experience" a household word. Monroe not only helped others understand this state of being, but through his research on binaural beats and his development of the technology known as Hemi-Sync, he made the OBE accessible through programs at The Monroe Institute, which is attended by thousands of people each year.
However, Monroe made consciousness research more than an esoteric thrill ride. He put his technology to practical use by creating frequencies that have helped people with everything from meditation and learning, to insomnia, quitting smoking, and pain control.

This is the best biography of Robert Monroe , from an author who knew him, knew his work, and even knew his family. He stands on the shoulders of the late Bayard Stockton , whose earlier work Catapult was previously the only Monroe biography to read. But this story is fleshed out with more personal anecdotes, more rare photos, and to be fair, a more readable style and a more organized structure.

It is not merely giving lip service to Monroe either: it shows some of his warts and missteps, as humans are wont to show sooner or later.
But that only makes the portrait more complete, and actually allows the reader to get closer to the real Monroe than any press release could do. I found it educational, and a good read too.

Journey of Robert Monroe: From Out-of-Body Explorer to Consciousness Pioneer
This was an interesting Read. Having read the 3 books of Robert Monroe, and now following Tom Campbell, who was a scientist who worked with Robert, it was great to read about the experiences that started it all.
