From the Publisher:

In 1958, a successful businessman named Robert Mornroe began to have experiences that drastically altered his life. Unpredictably, and without his willing it, Monroe found himself leaving his physical body to travel via a "second body" to locales far removed from the physical and spiritual realities of his life. He was inhabiting a place unbounded by life or death.

Monroe recorded these experiences in two bestselling, landmark books, Journeys Out of the Body and Far Journeys. Ultimate Journey, his final and career-defining work, takes us further than we thought possible--and reveals to us what it all means.

Ultimate Journey charts that area which lies "over the edge," beyond the limits of the physical world. It presents us with a map of the "interstate"--the route that opens to us when we leave our physical lives, with their entry and exit ramps, their singposts and their hazards. It also tells us how Monroe found the route and travelled it, and uncovered the reason and the purpose of this pioneering expedition. It is a journey that reveals basic truths about the meaning and purpose of life--and of what lies beyond.

After six hardcover printings, the trade paperback edition of Ultimate Journey, will offer an even wider range of readers this exhilarating reading experience, the masterwork of one of the most daring and original thinkers and explorers of our time.

From Booklist:

Monroe is the preeminent explorer and chronicler of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) as well as founder of the Monroe Institute, a nonprofit research organization devoted to studying expanded forms of consciousness. In both his earlier books, Journeys Out of the Body (1973) and Far Journeys (1987), Monroe traversed many bizarre highways of the OBE universe, but here he hops onto the "OBE Interstate," taking us along for a wild ride. In Monroe's unending quest for knowledge beyond the usual human experience, he travels both to distant, nearly inconceivable realms and deep within his "core self" to develop what he calls a different overview. Monroe gains much knowledge, but continues to search for the missing "basic," or elemental truth. Often confused by the paradox of it all, he receives clues and information from several guides who also indulge in sarcasm and humor. As Monroe shatters preconceived notions of life, death, God, and the universe, his descriptions can be taken literally or metaphorically, but, either way, there is much here that is thought provoking and insightful.
