      4.0 out of 5 stars I guess my first review went into a parallel universe?, July 30, 2000
      By  Bruce Sweet (Mt. Prospect, Illinois USA) - See all my reviews
      I'll try again. "Miracle in the Void" was more of a psychological book than a parapsychological book. That's okay. I liked the book because I identified with the people mentioned who work in so-called "fringe science research." "Void" explores the emotions and psychological tensions experienced by many researchers for doing unusual research and for taking a path of life-employment not considered "normal." Not a "normal science career" was the same life-employment for Dr. Brian O'Leary, too. The choice has caused him strain.

      If a reader doesn't appreciate this book, my guess is that either it's too much in the head of the author or it doesn't ring bells of similarity to one's experience. In fact one high recommendation to read this book "is" that it effectively conveys the emotional feelings and turmoil that Dr. Brian O'Leary has gone through for jumping off of a mainstream science position into the unknown area of New Science. New Science investigates U.F.O's, prayer, free energy, phychic experiences, and so on.

      It's interesting to read of the mental struggles Dr. O'Leary has gone through. This book is something of a journal and a catharsis for him. Dr. O'Leary even applies the research lives of some in the book, like Bruce and John Klingbeil of Spindrift Research, as models to avoid if one gets very depressed in their research attempts. A theme in "Void" is mental depression and what can one do to avoid depression when the world is telling you that your pursuits are insane or at least abnormal.

      A reader should be interested in this book for no other reason than it is so unusual and psychological that one will walk away with information he didn't know he didn't know.

      4.0 out of 5 stars The Psychologist in the Void., July 29, 2000
      By  Bruce Sweet (Mt. Prospect, Illinois USA) - See all my reviews
      The book "Miracle in the Void" had an emotional impact on me because I know of the personal struggles some of the explorers mentioned in the book have gone through.

      There was much psychological struggling described in Dr. O'Leary's book. Dr. O'Leary applied as models the life-experiences of some people who explore "so-called fringe sceientific research." Some of these people were models of what to avoid in Dr. O'Leary's own life-experience. That is, if some researcher fell into a mental depression because of the negative way he was treated for doing fringe research, Brian O'Leary writes that such a reaction provided a hint of what psychological reaction to avoid himself. Brain O'Leary didn't want to get too depressed himself. And depression is a theme in this book.

      Dr. O'Leary has more descriptions of New Science theory and experiments in his other writings. However, "Miracle in the Void" is a stand-alone book, to the best of my knowledge, of the psychological warfare with others and with one's self many people with "far-out" ideas go through.

      I liked the book. It's psychological all the way through. It wonders more about the mental states of people rather than the altered states of people! The book is almost a journal of what Brian O'Leary has noticed in his contacts with those researching the unusual.

      Dr. O'Leary's book is an emotional ride. His writing hit me as a "catharsis" of all the emotions he has experienced by jumping off the mainstream of science into what is called New Science.

      As I said above, one good reason to read this book is, it may be the only one of its kind. What do I mean? Rather than going deeply into psychic and spiritual phenomena, Dr. O'Leary goes into the psychological states of people who promote their unusual experiences with free energy, prayer, consciousness, UFO's, and so on. I didn't anticipate what the book was about. That should peak one's interest in reading it.

      2.0 out of 5 stars Too much airy speculation about death and consciousness., May 18, 1998
      By A Customer
      Readers expecting useful information on the book's subtitle, "Free Energy, UFOs and Other Scientific Revelations", will be disappointed, Although a scientist, O'Leary is light on the science of free energy. He is far more concerned with death, consciousness, personal introspection, transcendence, parapsychology and resurrecting Gaia than in offering a strong explanation of advances in energy technology. O'Leary still thinks there are remains of a lost civilization on Mars. "Finding Myself in the New Consciousness" would have been a better description.
