Hacking the Out of Body Experience

Hacking the Out of Body Experience

by Bob Peterson

I just wanted to let everyone know that my new book, Hacking the Out of Body Experience: Leveraging Science to Induce OBEs, is now available to purchase on amazon, both in print and for Kindle. I tried very hard to make this the best OBE "How-To" book ever written.

The paperback version is available in the United States by Clicking on this link but it's also available in the U.K., Canada and elsewhere.

The Kindle version is available by Clicking on this link.

Instead of reviewing my own book, which seems kind of lame and self-serving, I'll let the book stand on its own. I will, however, provide a table of contents so you can see the variety of techniques in the book. It should be no surprise that several of the books chapters have appeared in my blog already, because I've shared a lot of the information here first.

  1. Great! And loved the idea of hacking it... perfect for computer nerds like me ;)

  2. Amazing, Bob! I'm so glad that your book came out so "quickly" since we heard about it the first time! :)
    I'm getting my hands on the Kindle version as soon as possible!
    (or if you don't gain much revenue from that, you can notify us of a different way of purchasing it!)

  3. P. S. All the clickable links on your blog seem to be a very dark blue color, almost invisible on the dark background. If you have a way to change that, I would advise you to do so! :)

  4. Hey Bob! I just bought your book!! I can't wait to read it. The table of contents look fantastic! Maybe I'll finally have my very own OBE!! :-)

  5. You can promote this book on the phase evolution book.

  6. Congratulations dear Bob! I just bought the kindle version from Amazon UK. From the first glances it seems extremely interesting and rich in valuable information. But isn't there a table of contents in the book like this you posted above? I cannot find one in the kindle version. It would help for easy finding and redirecting to the desired chapter one would like to read or re-read.

  7. Saw it. Bought it. Reading it. Looking good so far.

  8. Hi. I just got the audio book on audible and there is a mention of diagrams provided with the audio book. I can't seem to find them is there a link to those reference figures?

  9. The diagrams from the book can be found here:
