'Sheldrake uses many case studies, along with scientific theory, to support his research, and the result is, quite literally, mind-expanding' The Good Book Guide

Have you ever had the feeling of being watched? Most of us know it well - the almost physical sensation that we are the object of someone's attention. Is the feeling all in our head? And what about related phenomena, such as telepathy and premonitions? Are they merely subjective beliefs? In THE SENSE OF BEING STARED AT, renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake explores the intricacies of the mind and discovers that our perceptive abilities are stronger than many of us could have imagined.
