The Sense of Being Stared At and Other Aspects of the Extended Mind by Rupert Sheldrake

The Sense of Being Stared AtOpening Sentence:Telepathy comes from the Greek tele, distant, as in telephone and television, and pathe, feeling, as in empathy and sympathy.
Synopsis:Have you ever had a premonition, the feeling of being watched, or a telepathic experience?

Renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake explores the intricacies of the mind and discovers that our perceptive abilities are stronger than many of us could have imagined.
Genre:Science and Psychology
Comments:The Sense of Being Stared At contained some interesting facts and experiments, and was fascinating to read. However there were parts that were quite technical and dull, so if you are reading it for pleasure, you may want to skip those parts. However, the inclusion of experiment parameters and results means that this would be a valuable resource for the serious researcher. I particularly like the appendices, which include experiments that can be completed at home by the average layperson, and contact details where you can send the results. Overall, this is a worthy book for those who are truly interested in the subject.
