We expect the government to utilize all aspects of exploring to develop "new" ways to stay ahead of others. This book opens thoughts into areas you may have never expected. Bit, based on what we are given in sci-fi movies, books, and tv; it's not hard to fathom the thought of how possible it really occurred or occurs.
not bad, but freaky knowing there's psychic soilders out in the world. I did enjoy the movie more. he's writing trails off sometimes.
This book was a story about the military attempt to use psychics as a resource for both intelligence and coercion. It made a interesting read. Although, I didn't see the movie, I wanted to rad the book. It's melding of actual facts overlaid with psychic drama and mental manipulation was unique.
The mind is a strange and wonderful thing...
Maybe I'll watch the movie.
In addition to the complete level of bologna, the book jumps all over the place. Is there a point to any of this? I can't take it anymore.
Voice droned on and on. No excitement in the story at all.
all of it
This is the worst book I've ever listened to. I'd rather listen to hours of commercials on the radio.
infuriating..tax dollars being spent .and that douche bag hurting hamsters
i have listened to coast to coast am
and it was funny
to hear about ed dames
Gave me many laughs and had me transfixed by the story and superb portraits of these fascinating people.
I dont know what all the nagging about the narrator is about, he doesnt deserve it! he might seem a little akward at first but he really adds a surreal dimension to the story and it's characters.
The new Roman empire has returned. If only vaguely true this journey into secrecy, military intelligence & a possibly assassinated C.I.A. scientist is hard to believe tale.
I love to be read to!
I love the other Jon Ronson books and I just couldn't make the narration work on this one. Really awful and so sad because why didn't they just have Jon Ronson read it??
I will try new Jon Ronson books if he narrates.
I've said it before. The narration makes or breaks an audiobook. This is a looser.
This book was very dry. It reads like it really happed but of course it is fiction.
The narrator did a good job but the story was not enjoyable to listen to.
