Passport to the Cosmos" bears greater relationship to such spiritual classics as "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda than to other books about UFO-related phenomenon - although there is plenty of "alien and UFO" discussion underpinning all of the content. In addition to the experiences or ordinary Americans, Mack also highlights the UFO-like experiences of three modern day shamans - Sequoyah Trueblood, Bernardo Peixoto and Credo Mutwa.

Passport to the Cosmos book.

Passport to the Cosmos book. It has a very important message that needs to be considered and thought through. The continuity of so many people across the world and in all walks of life, saying very similar things from their experiences and being transformed in their understanding of our world and the creative universal force is something to behold.

For Mack, the alien abduction phenomenon is nothing short of a cosmic wake-up call to humans that we do indeed live .

For Mack, the alien abduction phenomenon is nothing short of a cosmic wake-up call to humans that we do indeed live in a world filled with spirits and beings who can cross the barrier we have thrown up between the material and immaterial worlds. Drawing on the rich tradition of non-Western and indigenous cultures, which more readily accept that we live in a multidimensional universe, Mack persuasively shows that by broadening our definition of "what is real," we can begin to explore a phenomenon that has deep and lasting implications for humanity. In Passport to the Cosmos, John Mack further solidifies his reputation as a brave pioneer on the forefront of the science of h.

According to John Mack’s newest book Passport to the Cosmos, the first thing they want is for their experiences to stop. People describing the alien encounter experience often say that they receive information of some sort, as if they were being educated about complex topics that may seem crystal clear during the experience, but that may become cloudy or may even seem trivial afterward. The topics are frequently momentous, such as impending environmental calamity, whether brought about by human behavior or by some other cause, perhaps unknown.

In "Passport to the Cosmos," John Mack succeeds in creating one of the most astute, rational narratives .

In "Passport to the Cosmos," John Mack succeeds in creating one of the most astute, rational narratives ever written about the "alien abduction" phenomenon. Not since Whitley Strieber's seminal best-selling "Communion" have I read a book that addresses the issue of nonhuman intelligence with such humility and restraint (traits lacking in recent books on the subject, such as David Jacobs' insipidly literal "The Threat")

In his groundbreaking follow-up to the bestselling Abduction, Pulitzer Prize-winner John E. Mack powerfully demonstrates how the alien abduction phenomenon calls for a revolutionary new way of examining the nature of reality and our place in the cosmos.Harvard professor Mack stunned the world when he published the astonishing results of his extensive research involving clients who claimed they had had encounters with alien life-forms. Writing with the authority and insight that have marked his distinguished career as a psychiatrist and writer, Mack used the remarkable stories to show how the abduction phenomenon has the vast potential to transform the foundation of human thought. In Passport to the Cosmos, Mack, who has done additional research with abductees in the United States and around the world, provocatively asserts that this phenomenon is part of a new age in human consciousness, a time in which we must be willing to embrace the idea that alien visitation is real on some level. Drawing on the rich tradition of non-Western and indigenous cultures, which are more accepting of the idea that we live in a multidimensional universe, Mack persuasively shows that by broadening our definition of "what is real" we can begin to explore a phenomenon that has deep and lasting implications for humanity.In Passport to the Cosmos, John Mack further solidifies his reputation as a brave pioneer on the forefront of the science of human experience with an authoritative voice that takes us into the twenty-first century.

Highly recommended for a sane and logical yet compassionate consideration of the whole non-human interference that has been happening on our planet for many ages. It is a highly researched, supported and documented investigation that does not dismiss people's real experiences as "nonsense" simply because the listener would like not to be terrified by the reality of such phenomena. The author is professional, yet open and compassionate. Start your research here into this very real aspect of human life in the 20th and 21st centuries. How could anyone read this book and not understand what is going on?

Harvard educated psychiatrist John E. Mack was at the peak of a distinguished career as a doctor, Harvard professor, writer and researcher. He even won the Pulitzer Prize for literature and enjoyed universal respect. Then in 1994 he astonished everyone by daring to publish a UFO book.

It was as if every accomplishment of his entire life was now called into question. A Harvard "kangaroo committee" began to investigate him. High-level academic peers condemned him. Public ridicule followed.

Ironically, Mack's 1994 book "Abduction" was a bestseller and probably made him a ton of money - opening him up to that old skeptic's attack over anything to do with UFOs - 'he did it to cash in.' I remember other quotes in the media from egg-head academics that went something like this: "John Mack is a really brilliant guy, but for some reason, he just lost it."

But Mack was only going where the science was leading him. As a therapist, he was intrigued that he was getting an increasing number of patients who claimed to have been abducted by UFO aliens. They were distressed over their experiences, but Mack was perplexed that, outside their bizarre tales of abductions, these people seemed altogether normal and mentally healthy in all other respects. They wanted to stay anonymous; in fact, they were desperate to keep their experiences a secret. It was clear they were not just a bunch of nutty attention seekers, or deeply neurotic or psychotic lunatics. They were ordinary people who needed to deal with a traumatic event.

And so what really got Mack into hot water, especially among the academic and scientific community, is that he had the audacity to suggest that maybe these people REALLY HAD BEEN abducted by aliens! That maybe they were telling the truth! It was blasphemy!

In my view, Mack, who died in 2004, was treated in much the same way the Catholic Church treated Galileo when he dared support the idea that the sun did not revolve around the earth. In the end, Mack faced no disciplinary action from Harvard, and he didn't lose his license to practice psychiatry, but he endured a scathing wind of condemnation from the "established elite" and sacrificed his standing in the medical and academic community.

Just as I found Mack's "Abductions" a riveting read, I give stellar marks to this book, "Passport to the Cosmos." It's an amazing book in many ways - it's not even really so much a book about alien abduction as it is about spiritual transformation. "Passport to the Cosmos" bears greater relationship to such spiritual classics as "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda than to other books about UFO-related phenomenon - although there is plenty of "alien and UFO" discussion underpinning all of the content.

In addition to the experiences or ordinary Americans, Mack also highlights the UFO-like experiences of three modern day shamans - Sequoyah Trueblood, Bernardo Peixoto and Credo Mutwa. This is significant because Mack rather brilliantly shows us the UFO phenomenon through the eyes of a different culture - perspectives that are not as entangled in the highly rational, secular, materialistic, scientific mindset of Western society. It gives us another way to look at and consider just what might be going on with this whole UFO thing. It forces us to look at it in a new light.

For many readers who have read Mack's "Abductions," this book may seem like "more of the same" but my view is that Mack's thoughts and ideas about what is going on with abduction patients ("experiencers") and the UFO phenomenon have advanced and solidified, and are stated more firmly around a more coherent theory in this book.

This is an important book. I wish millions of people would read it, and give it serious thought.

This is now officially one of my favorite books. I enjoy reading books about the 'alien abduction' phenomenon, especially from a psychiatric perspective. This author, John E. Mack, has been studying the phenomenon and has really put a lot of thought and insight into his work. In this book, he approaches the subject from many angles and shares quite a bit of information that is usually not shared in such books, due to the incredibility of the claims. He also explores and considers the phenomenon from various cultural perspectives - something I have never considered in the past. He is able to share the info he has gathered over the years, analyze and then theorize without allowing personal judgments to get in the way, allowing the reader to do the same. This makes a refreshing, unbiased read that really opened my mind and way of thinking; and I love books that coax and allow me to contemplate new information without telling me what I should think of the presented materials. This made the book a classic (to me) and I will enjoy reading it again.

Most of the authors who investigate alien abduction phenomenon usually just stop at reporting on the phenomenon. John E. Mack has taken it to the next level. He does reports the facts on the phenomenon, but he also discusses how individuals who went through the abduction integrate these highly unusual occurences into their lives. This aspect alone make the book a valuable read. Thereby, he does try to remain as objective as possible, which is also not often the case with other authors whose perception of theese events ranges from downright negative and fearful (like Carla Turner) to downright positive and naive (Dolores Cannon). He tries to be as "scientific" as possible, which is understandable knowing his backgrount. He does acknowledge that his value system underwent substantial changes due to his own interaction with the abductees, but nevertheless he does try to maintain a neutral and objective stance on the issue (even though one must ultimatly admit that there is no such thing as an objective reality). I recommend this book to all those who are interested not just in facts about abductions, but also in how extraterrestrial life and alien abduction phenomenon relate to our own reality and everyday life.

only about 1/8 into the book and its already got me hooked. even if you dont really follow the subject matter, this is extremely well written and laid out in a very informative fashion. John Mack is a legend. RIP. Great book. Shipping was a little slow but they promptly responded to all my questions.

I had actually already owned this book in its paperback version. I went to re-read certain chapters for purposes of Ufological research but the print was now too small for me. So I bought the Kindle edition which allowed me to adjust the print size on my Ipad. Wonderful choice! Incidentally Dr Mack was among the finest researchers in matters of the high strange, including alien abduction- even at the risk of his position at Harvard. For anyone interested in these arcane studies this book is a must-read.
