So enough with what the book wasn't. On to what the book was: A very thorough, engaging, and accessible introduction to everything Remote Viewing from someone who was there. He gives the history from the beginning to the present, and discusses the people and events that are worth knowing about. Although he takes the deliberate care of the scholar (he has a PhD) to organize his arguments and cite his sources, his writing style is light and informal; it's just academic enough to be clear, but personable and accessible. It feels like a quick read, despite an abundance of interesting information.
More than simply being an introduction to remote viewing's history and people, the book makes an argument for the reality of the practice, and I think it does so quite convincingly. From page after page of side-by-side comparisons between the psychics' sketches and the intended targets, to numerous case studies (all cited in a bibliography) at the end of the book with impressive p values, he lays out a coherent, valid, and convincingly sound argument for accepting that remote viewing works, and that he has done it, and that it is a skill that one can learn. And interspersing all the arguments, reasoning, studies, and whatnot, are numerous anecdotes, stories, history, and applications that keep the reader moving through the book. This does not read like a dissertation. It's quite enjoyable. I do not give my 5 stars cheaply.
Although I was initially disappointed by the lack of exercises and such in the book (after reading it I find I'm raring to go, and would like to start learning to remote view), upon further reflection I think this book has another and perhaps more valuable purpose. Certainly, it deepened my understanding of the subject in ways I wasn't anticipating, but this is the perfect book to hand someone who has never heard of remote viewing, or who doesn't believe in any sort of non-materialistic phenomenon at all, and so on. It's entertaining, engaging, and convincing. If nothing else, I enjoyed every minute of the reading. What more can you ask?
RV can be taught successfully, although Dr. Smith cautions against video and online courses. As someone who learned RV the long and hard way, and who has taught many people, he understands the benefits of a hands-on approach. And, speaking as someone who has trained as a coach, there is no question in my mind that the ability to ask questions and have discussion provides a much greater level of understanding about a subject.
Even if the results were not so remarkable, there would be good reason to incorporate them into intelligence. For more than 20 years, RV was a Program of Record with significant Congressional oversight, and it produced remarkable results from the discovery of the Russian Typhoon Class submarine being built, to the anticipation of the attack on the USS Stark. The real reasons for the closing of the Stargate program are unknown to the public, but it seems like a serious mistake in the light of both the Russian and Chinese visions for the future.
