Paranormal Spy, the edgy collective for all things strange and mysterious, has reviewed Dr. LeShan’s new release, A New Science of the Paranormal: The Promise of Physical Research.

Dr. LeShan, a psychologist and parapsychologist (and originally a skeptic) with twenty books published and more years in the field than most, declares that the paradigm must shift if we plan on moving forward with the study and investigation into the paranormal. He argues that it’s time to stop wasting the time of trying to prove its existence and start studying the why and how…LeShan uses actual case studies to help illustrate ideas from each chapter making this an engrossing, begging for more type of read.  ▬Brody Maddox, Editor-in-Chief

On the Wings of Shekhinah: Rediscovering Judaism’s Divine Feminine by Rabbi Leah Novick was reviewed in The Salinas Californian on Friday, April 24th.


This volume invites the reader to accompany Rabbi Novick on a walk through Jewish history and scripture, revealing along the way the way the feminine face of God. Shekhinah, a mystical figure that can be found in many traditional world religions, but one who, until now, has merely been alluded to by sages and patriarchal societies, rests at the center of this work.                                                                  –Robert Walch, The Salinas Californian

QUEST BOOKS is excited to announce our new release, A New Science of the Paranormal: The Promise of Psychical Research by Lawrence LeShan, PhD!

3d-coverA New Science of the Paranormal is the highly passionate and astute appeal of acclaimed psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Lawrence LeShan. This deeply affecting and hardnosed argument implores readers to recognize the crucial need to pursue a scientific understanding of psychic phenomenon.  Incorporating powerfully persuasive empirical findings with gripping, yet heartfelt, documented psychic events, this book delivers a fresh look into the astonishing mystery of the human potential.

As LeShan so poignantly declares, “We desperately need a new concept of what is a human being if we are to stop killing each other and poisoning our only planet.” Psychical research contains the promise for this ‘new concept’. Far more than the gratification of pop novelty, psychical research contains the key for discovering man’s highest potential, the kind of far-reaching transformation our planet so desperately needs. A New Science of the Paranormal is an absolute must read for the skeptic, the believer and for hopeful humans at large.

A New Science of the Paranormal is a stirring manifesto…History will judge Lawrence LeShan as one of the great visionaries of consciousness, and this book shows why.
Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Power of Premonitions

A New Science of the Paranormal is LeShan’s distillation of decades of research and contemplation; it reveals a brilliant mind at the peak of its intellectual prowess.                                                                                                                                     —Stanley Krippner, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School, co-editor, Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Assessing the Scientific Evidence
