Publisher's Summary

When Larry Dossey was in his first year of medical practice, he experienced a week of premonitions about patients, all of which came true. He had never had them before; they seemed to have come out of left field. After the sensations stopped, writes Dossey in , "It was as if the universe, having delivered a message, hung up the phone. It was now my job to make sense of it - which I try to do in this book."

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.

Fascinating

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."

Tedious

What disappointed you about The Power of Premonitions?

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.

Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Dossey again?

Yes.

If it were possible to give negative stars....

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!
