"Entertaining, and in the best sense of the word, unsettling." THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD Fueled by a powerful curiosity--and by a need to see and feel and hear, firsthand and close-up--Michael Crichton's travels have carried him into worlds diverse and compelling. This is a record of those travels--an exhilarating quest across the familiar and exotic frontiers of the outer world, a determined odyssey into the unfathomable, spiritual depths of the inner world. It is an adventure of risk and rejuvenation, terror and wonder, as exciting as Michael Crichton's many masterful and widely heralded works of fiction. From the Paperback edition.… (mehr)

Some great early material about his medical studies and some of his travels, but goes completely off the rails when he gets into spoon bending, auras and exorcism. ( )

cool take on med school from maybe the best known american fiction author. a few travel stories. mostly med school and metaphysics. crichton went to a spoon-bending party ( )

I didn't expect this memoir to be very interesting, and the cover description gives no indication that it is heavily focused on Crichton's deeply-felt experiences with the occult and "new age" spirituality. I was fascinated with the lack of concern he expressed about preserving any duality between the scientific worldview versus his spiritual extrasensory experience. For example, he recounts his ability, since childhood, to induce his consciousness to leave his body.

While experiences like these can only be convincing to the subject directly involved, Crichton's accounts struck me as very genuine, and I'm still awed by the idea of a sciency person who can fully acknowledge experiences that have no apparent physical explanation without a priori demeaning them as illusions of the physical.

i tend to really like some and really dislike some of crichton's books. the same was true for a lot of his vignettes in this book. some seemed so poorly written, and others much better and engaging. mostly, though, i found it not particularly enjoyable to read a nonfiction book (therefore with no promise or hope of a character working his way through his issues along the story arc) about someone so profoundly dissatisfied with everything, in constant search of something without knowledge of what he's searching for. i do think this was written pretty honestly, as the majority of this book doesn't paint crichton in a terribly good light, and i do appreciate that. it's not all bad, it's just not all that good.

This is kind of like wading through a Carribean beach that has had a large fish kill on it, but is wonderful once you get out into th e warm sea water, it can be wonderful. He often had me laughing out loud, which takes one heluva ood writer to do. I'm pretty sure this is labbelled non-fiction and, if so, the few chapters on body auras and weird perceptions need to be investigated, especially siknce these ujnusual occurances were witnessed by scores of people over a period of time.
