Here are some larger reviews of the book.
Maybe it’s his writing style that first grabbed me – honest and slightly irreverant. After all, he’s a young European, and his perspective is very off-center from an American point of view, but that adds to the charm when you’re being put through the paces of psychic development. His book will turn most American intuitives on their heads.
What’s unique about it? Nathan has done all of this work first himself. He has very specific timetables and recommends that you follow them in order to protect yourself and make the learning process fun and reasonably paced for most. The book itself took me a month to read through, as there is frankly so much information that you cannot breeze through it – you have to live it, piece by piece, absorb it, and come back for more.
As a professional intuitive, I found myself nodding my head along with him in the “How To” do a psychic reading section. An enormous amount of this hefty book covers various ways of handling and dealing with energy. I found myself puzzling over them somewhat not only as I was learning some new things, but also as I recognized that there were a number of things I do automatically in a reading that I didn’t really learn anywhere that Nathan puts a name to and teaches you how to do – invaluable. Some things are simply universal in intuitive development and no matter who you are or at what stage you presently find yourself, you will benefit from the lessons.
Nathan uses easy to understand “everyday” analogies to explain complex topics. He is straightforward and calls it like he sees it. You can trust his judgement when he gives you advice on how to think about the process and not to overhelm or overload yourself, but instead to take it easy and at your own pace. Some of the advice he gives in snippets thrown out here and there are simply priceless and will resonate with everyone, no matter what your intuitive style or belief system. There is a unique section on Chakras, for example, that doesn’t just give you colors and key phrases, but instead goes into psychological depth as to what issues blockages in those areas may represent.
Thank you to Nathan for sending me an advance copy of the book for review. It is dense, extensively informative, and something that I would liken to a Psychic Encyclopedia. My take on this is that it could in itself be considered a fairly comprehensive course. The perspective is unique, and just different enough to make even a seasoned psychic or intuitive reconsider their posiition on some things.

I’m brand new to the world of the paranormal and there are so many books to read, sites to visit, articles to see and programs to watch. It’s hard to choose what is real and factual. I had the good fortune of being able to read “Psychic Development Simplified” and am so glad I did. I was a little daunted at first by the number of pages, but once I settled in to read, it was hard to put it down. It is exactly as the title states – simplified. One of the best pieces of information I learned was that not everyone has the same gifts, but you have the ability to learn others. Before I started reading, I had visions in my head about turban wearing shrunken ladies with long fingernails and a crystal ball; I was extremely happy to find out this is not a realistic thought and true psychics are every day people with every day lives. Another great point about this book are the theories that are discussed in full detail before each practical activity. I like a little knowledge and/or history before I dive into something and that is exactly what Nathan provided. The practical exercises were easy to understand and attempt throughout the entire book. I’m so thankful for my new knowledge that I can’t wait to re-read and continue practicing. I would highly recommend this for all levels of learning and practicing psychics.
