The four parts of The Power of Premonitions take listeners through documented cases of premonitions, including a remarkable instance when an entire Nebraska community skipped church the very day it exploded; an examination of recent science studying what is known as "presentiment"; a discussion of what it all means to daily life; and practical, field-tested techniques for inviting premonitions.
Just as he did in Healing Words, the groundbreaking book that propelled him into the public consciousness, Dossey uses cutting-edge science to prove the value of what had long been considered spiritual mumbo-jumbo. This is a book for the skeptical mind, but it's also for the believer's heart - because its author possesses the rare gift of having both.

Couldn't stop listening. Based on good science. He offers dozens of cases and studies about premonitions and like phenomenon. In a few I was able to entertain alternative possible explanations. In most however, the events are nearly impossible to explain. It's opened my eyes to the premonitions I've ignored in my life. This book has definitely changed the quality of my waking awareness. Staying open to being informed via intuitive channels. My adulthood has been a shift towards intellectualism, now I feel more intellectually justified in listening to my "gut."
It seems that considerable effort goes into trying to convince the reader that premonitions are credible; many examples are given and the writing becomes repetitive.
This book was a waste of the narrator's breath. I couldn't even finish the book it was so bad. It was supposed to be about premonitions but it wasn't. I wish I had a premonition about how bad it was going to be so I could have saved myself the credit!
