I love this book. It stimulates my mind and is fun to read. I bought it after I read his other book Dreamscape.
This book was recommended to me by another Occult practitioner and I bought it sight unseen from Amazon. The problem became apparent after I received the book in the nebulous metaphors and loosely language the author uses to explain a difficult subject.

The subject matter is Thralls a.k.a. Thoughtforms/Servitors/Elementals, and there is scant information out there on this subject that delves deeper into why Thralls work other than basic how-to information.

Vance does his best to explain how mental constructs happen but since this is mystical at best, he can only use nebulous language. He does attempt to explain the various functions of the mind by discussion of information content, emotional coloring, intensity but fails due to the glossing over of such subjects. There's very little depth given to each subject to really give you a full synopsis.

Then he moves into the mystical with energy fields, mental gestalts, consciousness, multidimensionality, meditation, dreaming, visualization and etc. Again with only 197 pages of text, Vance can hardly compensate by getting into any depth. Then again from his style of writing and given the fact the book is a Theosophical House publication, the depth of subject matter is very shallow indeed.

Part three gets into quantum physics and again hardly anything is in here that's worth buying the book for. If you are already a fan of QP, then this will be quite boring for you to read.

Overall I rate this boook 1 out of 5 possible stars for the shallow treatment the subject matter was given. If you can buy it used, then okay but again you won't find much in here worth your time and effort to attain.
This is a simple and general book about exploring the reality of the the title basically states. However, within the simplicity of the book I found an enormous depth of knowledge and it was apparent to me that the author does have a lot of background experience in this area.

I would say about 50% of the knowledge in this book I was familiar with....however the level of depth and clarity that the author is able to convey his subject matter expanded my understanding about topics that I thought I already had a good grasp on. I don't think I have ever highlighted so much in any book, there are precious gems everywhere in this book. He clarified a lot of my own experiences of the nature of the mind, reality as well as my experiences with Trance and Magic. I have already applied some of the techniques in order clear and re-formulate some of my mental constructs and have found great success.

The only thing I might have complained about is he does come of a bit too academic at times for my own esoteric tendencies.....but that is also one of the strengths of the book and I feel he hits the right balance as best he can when talking about such fuzzy esoteric topics. Best of all its dirt cheap, only a penny on amazon.

It was a great read, I didn't want to put it down and read it in 3 days.
