I couldn't believe what I was reading. Eventually it sent me on quite a journey..and am still traveling 15 books later. Mr.Morehouse's account of CRV (controlled remote viewing) was almost incredible. Because it is buttressed by facts, and he was in the U.S. Army while these experiments were conducted, we have to assume it was true. He exasperated me with his style of writing, but later I realized he is not a writer as such and probably did not get some counsel as to how not to annoy your reader ...more
Though he knows that the Creator is God, he neither acknowledges him nor does he glorify him, instead at the end he turns to the gods of an old Native American Indian medicine man.
What do I think? I think that the book is an honest description of a tragic life - it affected me deeply. He is honest to the point that he gives a not all positive impression of himself.
His story disturbed me for many reasons, but most of all because of its humanness. David Morehouse is a courageous hero, a stubbo
While the subject matter was interesting (you get the gist of it from the overwrought title,) the writing is annoyingly bad. Just really hackneyed, in an 80s kind of way, if that makes sense. The result of an unskilled writer attempting to present a memoir as a narrative novel. With that said, there were some elements he described that stood out as extraordinarily creative, in contrast to how uncreative the writing was. Which makes me inclined to believe them to be true, because there's little c ...more

I started reading Psychic Warrior when I found it on a bookcase in my house. I read the back blurb and thought it was interesting enough to start reading right then. I was hooked from the first paragraph. It's gripping in places (I couldn't put the book down) and slow at others but overall a good read. I rated it a 3-star because I'm not fond of the writing style.

I was really interested in the main character, David Morehouse, and found his experiences and transformation interesting.

I got this book with the expectation it would be documentary-style information on the government's psychic spy programs. What it turned out to be was more of a "based on a true story" type of novelization. Despite my misgivings, it was very readable and entertaining. Now, there may be nuggets of truth in this book, but they're swimming in a sea of half-truths and outright fiction. Nothing wrong with that, but the author is portraying it all as fact. The author talks about the government psychic ...more
A tell all story by a guy selling Internet courses and instruction books on remote viewing, verifying the authenticity of... remote viewing. Without any sources of course, we should all take his word for it because hes so credible, he dont need no stinking sources.

Reminded me of the "biographical account" Communion: A True Story by sci-fi author Whitley Strieber.

Im more inclined to take Jim Schnabels word for exposing Morehouse as a fraud.

The ERV (extended remote viewing) sessions David undergoes in the early stage of his training send him to places where there are coordinates but not other information. The first bleak place he drops into is full of emotional agony, fear, despair and hate. The walls speak and he learns all inanimate objects absorb the atmosphere of their emotionally charged environments. When he logs back to the lab from the ethers, he learns that the address he visited was Dachau, Nazi Prison Camp. The next coor ...more

I really liked this. Half the time I was wondering why on earth this guy would now be teaching remote viewing since he nearly lost his mind doing it as explained in this book. Hopefully there is a sequel or some further explanation on how he recommends protecting yourself from going crazy while remote viewing. Reading the book you often wonder if he's psychic or just psycho. But I've always thought there is a fine line between many similar things such as genius/wacko. He doesn't really seem wack ...more

I gotta say, an interesting read. You'll probably never read another book exactly like this because it's one of a kind. Don't let the title scare you, just try it on and if it fits then wear it. Read it before you do anything else with it, other than getting it of course. :D
David Núñez
Definitely on of my favorite books! A most amazing experience told by David Morehouse. I really enjoy hearing the experiences of remote viewers. I always enjoy hearing the stories of how a viewer was recruited and especially the different targets the viewer was tasked. David is an amazing writer. I could not put this book down.

There is so much more to David than just being a viewer. I've seen several seminars and met many so-called spiritual gurus. But no one has intrigued me and impressed me m
Unabashed CIA disinformation nonsense about "remote viewing". Badly written, melodramatic hogwash!
Mitzi McMahon
Excellent. Made me late for work and kept me up past midnight reading. Couldn't put it down.
Great read. A man's journey. It's really kind of a huge tribute to key players in his life, who helped him and loved him though BIG changes in his life, and his journey to bring the ability of remote viewing to the world. I would have like to read more about particular things that he did...but, the book did create a huge respect for the man...and I am currently looking into more of his stuff including a home study course. A MUST read for those who want to develop those abilities that are laying ...more
If you believe that our govt's secret agencies get by with lots then you will have no trouble beliving David Morehouse's story. Think of 24. The aftermath was amazing that he and his family experienced. The remote viewing episodes were facsinating and made me want to slip into the ether just as long as it had no long lasting effects like David experienced. Otherwise no thanks, I'll stay in this dimension and deal with what I see everyday. I found this on my public library shelf, it was recommend ...more
A compelling story that I enjoyed immensely. Honestly, this would be a great TV show/ movie.
Lucas Gili
This was a great book about remote viewing told by a high rank military man who had an accident during a training exercise and thereafter became trained in remote viewing. I highly recommend it. The book give interesting insight into how the governments can use remote viewing and how it works.

This book is definitely one to read if you're interested in the subject.
Vincent Scarsella
After a promising start, this book devolved into anecdotes of the author's supposed remote viewing trips and the ill effects on his mental state and marriage. Could have been a decent article in a magazine, but for a full length book, it didn't work for me.
My dad actually taught this guy in the mission field, but that is not how I came about to reading this book. Shad actually owned it and gave it to me while we were dating, the interesting part is not the CIA cover up, but the idea of remote viewing itself.

Scary and believable, I saw this author prove his skills on some afternoon talk show and went out and got the book. An expose of the elite remote viewing program that many people have now studied and applied in their own lives.

Recommended to Jyoti by: found it at my dentist's office
This was a fun read and crazy. Makes you question a lot of things. This author is now teaching people how to remote view (what he learned how to do after his accident in the military)in workshops all over.

Ross Drew
Not sure about the validity of it all but it's an interesting read about the alleged "remote viewing" section of the American government written by an ex member, "David Moorehouse"
If this is true, (and I believe it is) it's scary, inspiring, and mind blowing! Actually, even if it isn't all factual, it reads like a Baldacci novel so it's still worth the time.
This was very good for my research but I'm not sure how much others would get out of it unless you're the type that's determined to believe in vast government conspiracies.
Barrett  Dylan Brown
This book gets so effed up I don't even know where to start...

Also it oddly gives complete credulity to Lyn Buchanan from "Men Who Stare at Goats." Effin weird.
Heidi Wiechert
I would have given it four stars if he had made it more about his experiences during remote viewing. Those parts were fascinating.

Took a look.

Remote viewing is another word for psychic and both are synonyms for bullshit. Not going to waste my time on it.
Richard Hearn
Poorly written. 90% of the book is really a lot of words with no content. Very disappointing.
It's been a long time since I read this but what I remember is that it was fascinating but terribly written.
Gerald Egleson
OK book. seemed a little hackish in the flow, did not make a believer of me but I'm a skeptic.
Benjamin Spurlock
A very interesting read, albeit not for the reason that David Morehouse likely intended.
