There are some very good ideas on that web site. I wouldn't consider them radically new but definitely worth reading.

EXCERPTS:

Implication If only we understood just how powerful we really are, and that we've only temporarily taken on the form of human actors in a grand play called 'earth reality', we might finally recognize that we're not limited and puny beings constantly buffeted by God's will, outrageous fortune and so on.

The Law of Attraction reigns supreme Experienced out-of-body explorers have come to realise that in higher planes their thoughts and emotions instantly translate into what they experience. The same principle underlies our earth reality. However here the constraints of space-time mean there's usually a time delay between thought and manifested result.

Everything is happening in the now. Time is only a form of illusion that allows us humans to make sense of our experience of this plane. But fundamentally, as so many wise spiritual traditions have indicated down the ages, past and future don't exist - there's only now. Another way of putting this is that time is a 'discrete series of now-moments'.

It seems to be a second hand look at the subject. It relies on quotes, interpretations of others' first hand knowledge, and rationalizations.

The excerpts quoted in the above posting are a turn-off for me: superficial misunderstands and misinterpretations of the subjects.

Everybody should try to acquire first hand knowledge themselves by learning to get in altered states of consciousness, and adopting an attitude of unbiased mild curiosity and openness. I don't believe there is any value in reading that book.

As I mentioned in my post on this subject, there is nothing radically new in the articles presented. However, they could serve as a springboard to further investigation by readers who are not familiar with those ideas.

I agree with you completely that there is no substitute for direct experiences and I too have no intention of reading the book for exactly the reasons which you gave.
