Avid listener of information that defines what a mess individuals have made of society, humanity and the planet itself.
Interesting to read some of the reviews. Like almost anything else, you get people who like it and those who don't. Have done my own research on numerous topics and Mr. Wilcock connects the dots on many items. Refreshing to hear an alternative view from doom and gloom. The author was not the best reader but he was not that bad. I have found if you increase the speed, you not only get through the book faster but it alters the audio enough to where you get used to it.
Keep an open mind and you can't help but enjoy all the information that is presented.
This book presented a lot of fascinating and hard-to-debunk scientific anomalies, the majority of these anomalies being discovered by professional scientists.
Dark Mission by Richard Hoagland, because it deals with convincing hard evidence that is very surprising.
This book would benefit from a professional narrator and editor.
There's a lot of good information in this book, but it also has some problems which become evident to listeners who aren't David Wilcock fans.
First, most authors should not record their audiobooks, they aren't professional narrators. David is good in radio interviews and his own presentations, but not here. He hurts his narration on every page with an I'm-excited-so-you-should-feel-excited inflection rise and a high-pitched top. A little emotion goes a long way, but Wilcock does this "excited emphasis" trick maybe a thousand times.
Second, who edited the book? Lots of little problems, such as Wilcock's misuse of "alleged" and "allegedly." They don't mean whatever he wants. The result? On his acknowledgements section at the end, he cites the Law Of One material, "allegedly transmitted telepathically by very advanced extraterrestrials. " They were alleged but not convicted, I hope. Try "reportedly" or "claimed" or "reputedly." Alleged still has to do with a crime, not a creation.
Third, it needed less David Wilcock "personality.". Over and over, Wilcock tells us he was "stunned" and "shocked" and "amazed" to discover something. It didn't amaze me to hear he was amazed. Wilcock wasn't doing a Graham Hancock or Linda Moulton Howe field investigation that yielded amazing results, he was telling us about something he read!
Next, the book isn't an investigation so much as a survey of literature. The material covered is impressive in volume and often fascinating, but Wilcock is telling us what he read in other writers' books and website articles.
For future books, Wilcock should be replaced by a professional narrator, and the books need a tight editing to keep the information on the page relevant to the overall themes of the book. Finally, I only got through the book by playing it at double-speed on the iPod. That made his 1001 excited emphatic moments sound less immature.
I look forward to Wilcock's future books. He's worth reading and chases the truth.

Normally, I prefer listening to books rather than reading them, but, this book, so dense in scientific references and theories, needs to be read rather than heard. With a book, you can jump back to something you need to reread to understand, but this is very difficult to accomplish in an audio book.
Content is amazing, so it's not the book that deserves a three star rating; however, I suggest reading as the best way to get the most out of the book.
The book would have been better if it had any basis in reality
No, but thankfully it wasn't the first in the genre or it would have.
The author's narration was fine.
An intense feeling I was using my time poorly and remorse for the money I had wasted.
The author seems to believe every bizarre myth, story, rumor, and tall tale that was ever dreamed up. He presents this all in an entirely unfiltered list, each point of which is apparently supposed to have some connection to the rest but most of which are actually completely unrelated. He jumps from conjecture, to wild speculation, to conclusion, without the benefit of any actual evidence. He wraps this all up on a pseudo-science package that is supposed to inspire confidence but fails miserably. Fundamentally, his thought process lacks cohesion.
A fellow listener inclined to share my opinion on these productions. Maybe even inspire someone toward a powerful, or educational audiobook!
I, as a skeptic, freethinking, being have to lend credence to many publications before reading, otherwise my views on reality and audible books would be...um...not as balanced and fair as I have tried to be as a member here. I gave this a chance, and found it ridiculously misleading. The book is completely built on strawman arguments. It will use real evidence from studies to lead you down a path that is not causally connected to the evidence, but easily misinterpreted as evidence for what he wants you to believe(or that he believes...though I doubt it.) This is a book designed by Wilcock to, what I believe, purposefully play on the gullibility of humanity for him to earn a pretty penny. This is an abomination if that was his intentions. I hate to give this book such high performance and story scores, but the narrator did a great job. The story was told in a way easily misunderstood as truth. Don't buy this without first listening to Nonsense on Stilts or Bad Astronomy(other much more informative publications available here on audible.com). That is the best advice I can give. Enjoy if you dare go down this ridiculous path.
Yes, I absolutely recommend this book for everyone who is actively seeking to understand what is really going on in our world and universe.
David Wilcock is a very conscientious, thorough researcher, and he intelligently presents important, obscure data in a clear and easy to follow manner for the average, every day person. I am extremely grateful to David and his associates for helping to make this material so readily available to so many people. I also greatly appreciate the time and energy he puts into his mind bending, eye opening articles on his website. Wow. He has aided my personal pursuit of truth tremendously.
ALL of it!
Appears to be nothing but stories told by the author like a little kid around the camp fire. No testing, nothing repeated in a controlled manner, nothing but stories. And the author seems to think this is proof of some sort of cosmic "source field". BS
He presents wild anecdotal tales as if they were true and as if they were science. Using supposed known “credible” names and government agencies to give them the sound of credibility. But anyone with an ounce of common sense can see these are no more than the urban myths found a million places on the internet and told by little boys around the camp file to impress each other. In the form of “ I know this guy who knew this guy that saw this guy hypnotize this other guy to be able to see through his own daughter and read a watch on the other side.”
Save your money. If I can turn this book back in I will. I think the write up in Audible was miss leading. This belongs in fantasy and is not something I would expect any thinking person to even be able to get half way through
