This page gathers together remote viewing book and movie reviews I (Paul H. Smith) have written and had published over the years. Though some of these books are not strictly about remote viewing, in most cases they will either include some discussion or remote viewing, or of topics related to remote viewing. I think you will find many useful and worthwhile selections here, along with honest evaluations to help you decide whether or not others are worth your time. Additional titles will be added from time to time
