I think "Otherwhere: A Field Guide to Nonphysical Reality for the Out-of-Body Traveler" by Kurt would be a good place to start Szaxx. I am going to purchase it soon as well.

 His "The Multidimensional Human: Practices for Psychic Development and Astral Projection " sounds pretty good as well.

Yeah, clearly asked many times lol, but no big deal.

Some of the better authors include Robert Monroe, Thomas Campbell, William Buhlman, Charles Tart, and Robert Bruce.

Each of them has their own paradigm; if you had those 5 in a room (unfortunately no longer possible), they might agree 60-70% of the time.

Monroe's super-famous trilogy is his most famous work I am aware of; Campbell is most known for the "My Big Toe" book, and Bruce is best known for "Astral Dynamics".

Charles Tart is more of a parapsychology researcher, and he has written a few good books explaining his own worldview and his reasons for rejecting materialism after experimental results, but he focuses very heavily on projections, having been a peer to Monroe (as was Campbell).

Bulhman I am less familiar with, only having read a couple of his books, but he is recommended by many here.

I best relate to Thomas Campbell's work, but he is not the best author to read if you are more interested in methods; I remember Bulhman standing out in that regard.

In shameless promotion, I will say as far as sources of knowledge, the Astral Pulse has been the best reference for me over the last 8 years; it touches on and refers to all these authors' works plus the experiences of the contributors themselves...plus it's pretty much free.  smiley

My collection of specific AP titles includes 30+ books gathered over 40 years; I don't have them all, but I bet it's most of them.

All the authors mentioned are good and contribute valuable experiences and insights.

Fred Aardema's Explorations In Consciousness is also a well-balanced, all-around read, just came out recently.

In retrospect, as a beginning projector, I would want a book that gives some easy to read, basic, unbiased theory and some good exit techniques. For that, either William Buhlman's Adventures Beyond the Body or Robert Peterson's Out of Body Experiences fit the bill pretty well.

As a more experienced projector I look for some deeper theory, refinement of techniques, subtleties of what makes up our experiences and what to look forward to. Kurt Leland's books, Otherwhere and Multidimensional Human serve those purposes in an excellent fashion. I love Otherwhere and was lucky to go ahead and buy one of the offered used copies online. I hope it comes back into reprint. But if I had to choose between the two, I would take Multidimensional Human, because it covers intermediate theory and it gives a great description of what Kurt describes as the 20 inner Non-Physical senses that can be and need to be developed to experience higher levels, and it gives exercises to develop them. In my own experience I have recognized some of these senses and his system of progression makes sense.

One from each of those categories will serve anyone very well.
