Reviews of The Sphere and the Hologram

[I omit a perceptive review from my friend Chris Smith only because he IS my friend, therefore not unbiased. The others should prove interesting, however.]

With all due respect, for very open minded readers
By Ledru on February 5, 2016

I am enjoying reading this book from Franck De Marco. With all due respect for people who will read this review, this is not a book for everybody. I would advise potential readers to start with the books written by Bob Monroe to better understand the context of this one. For many, a conversation with Higher Beings will appear as either a fantasy or very real. If you think this is fantasy, you will probably drop this book quite quickly. Your initial beliefs system, personal values and understanding of your personal journey in this life will make a big difference in determining your potential openness to the concepts developed during the sessions that Franck and Rita have had with the Guys Upstairs. If you are not presently satisfied by the belief systems most prevalent right now in society, this book is for you. You will find fuel and inspiration to look at who you are in a very different way. Enjoy the reading !

Thought-Provoking and Carefully Documented Channelled Material on the Nature of the Self
By Ileana Grams-Moog on May 11, 2014

This book is the result of a collaboration between Frank DeMarco and the late Rita Warren, for many years a facilitator at the Monroe Institute after her retirement as an academic psychologist. She asked the questions, DeMarco channelled “The Gentlemen Upstairs” as he refers to his contact on the Other Side, and the sessions were recorded and transcribed. The material is on the nature of the self, primarily, with TGU attempting to explain the connection between our individual selves Here–as it seems to us–and a much more complex self/selves There. There is much to provoke thought and extended reflection in what’s given.

My only reservation–as with the Seth material–is the repetitive nature of much of the content. Hard to avoid, as DeMarco chose, wisely I think, to present the material as received. But it does make for less gripping reading after a while, and, as with the Seth material, there seems less delivered than TGU intended. Sometimes it seems they got a bit sidetracked or distracted. Warren, too, asks less probing questions than I’d have like. She’s caught up in each session, it seems to me, to the point that she loses her way a bit, and doesn’t keep TGU on topic–or move them to a new one when they’ve pretty much exhausted the current one–as much as I’d have liked. But, overall, an interesting and worthwhile book.

I would say overall I was somewhat disappointed with this text. Seems like there was a lot of inefficient discussion and wasted text devoted to discussing various ‘analogies’ and did not accomplish their intended objective of providing clear understanding. A lot of banter presented that lacked substance. This book might be okay for encouraging readers to open up their mind to new perspectives or ideas in a general sense, but I would not look upon it as any reliable source of knowledge/wisdom. I did also order the ‘follow up’ text to this one and will read it shortly in hopes that it will be more intriguing than this one was.

Well written
By James R. Chowning on November 1, 2013

Interesting reading, but I would say more for the knowledgeable reader of this type of metaphysics. Recommend reading all of Robert Monroe books first.

Great read!
By Delia Russell on June 1, 2013

Really enjoyed this book – I wanted to read it before I saw the movie in order to get a grip on the story-line. – have been left with great visuals which I hope will concur with the movie script.

I love this book – great questions – great answers
By Amazon Customer on May 15, 2013

This book is excellent and unique in the way that the “Guys Upstairs” are actually very “down to earth” and tell it as it is and yet are trying to find words and associations/analogies that are least distorted knowing that this translation is never going to be precise simply because we have different perspective (which they talk about). Highly recommended reading for those who really are interested how it’s all designed. Many thanks to the authors Frank DeMarco and Rita Q Warren.

The Sphere and the Hologram
By Amazon Customer on August 28, 2009

A delightful and enlightening view of reality, or should I say realities. Frank and Rita have done a superb job of presenting the material received from ‘The Guy’s Upstairs’. They answer many of the questions all of us have about the nature of reality and the afterlife. It is worth multiple readings.

Much of the material presented here rings true from my own explorations and experience. There’s also plenty of new material to ponder, toss around, and feel out. Regardless of whether the communications from The Guys Upstairs ultimately confirm your view of reality or contradict it, they will expand your thinking in many directions, some rather surprising (even to them).

The content is straightforward, unsentimental and yet deeply life-affirming. I’m sure I’ll be dipping into this book again and again. I’ve already given copies to friends as birthday presents.
