Tortured in Ashram by Prem Nambiar is a non-fiction book that seeks to inform readers about the menace of microwave weapons. According to the author, most people consider victims of microwave weapon attacks to be insane because their attackers leave no physical evidence. So the victims continue to suffer without any hope of being helped.

Mr. Nambiar recounts how he became a follower of Amma, a spiritual leader, and eventually traveled to the Amritapuri Ashram in India. In Amritapuri, Mr. Nambiar became a victim of microwave weapon attacks by unknown criminals. Though the author is now back in the US, he adds that these perpetrators have continued to attack him. But what could be their motive? And is there any way to shield oneself from microwave attacks? Please read this book to find out.

This 177-page book is thought-provoking! The author's opinions stem from his experience and research. I was surprised to find vast materials about microwave weapon attacks online. Though I can't vouch for the author's claims in this book, I think his concerns are worth considering. I have read other books about covert operations aimed at controlling the mind through the brain and nervous system. And those books offer the same kind of claims about eerie inventions in science. Perhaps it's high time our authorities looked into the menace of microwave weapons.

What I liked the most about this book is its educative aspect. I enjoyed how the author broke down the human nervous system to bits. There are diagrams to help the reader in understanding the author's lessons, which I like. More so, I enjoyed the author's insights into Remote Neural Monitoring (RNM) and microwaves. Furthermore, the author backs his claims by providing links to videos, websites, and materials that further elucidate the topic. I like how the links provide authenticity and give credit to the work of others on microwave weapon attacks.

I also enjoyed the conversation style of the author's writing. He tried as much as possible to make his opinions easy to understand. He uses a simple language except where he needed to use scientific terminologies. I think some readers will not enjoy the science part of this book, but they helped the author to put up valid arguments. For example, I don't see any other way to tell you that microwaves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. And that some electromagnetic radiations are harmful to man.

Nevertheless, what I disliked the most about this book is repetition. I agree that references to points discussed earlier can help readers understand a topic better. However, it becomes annoying when it's overly done. For this reason, I am deducting a star from the book's rating. I, therefore, rate Tortured in Ashram 3 out of 4 stars. It doesn't deserve a lower rating considering its insightful discussions, science lessons, and relevance. However, readers who believe in God might find this book offensive due to a remark at the beginning of it. The book seems professionally edited and has a few errors. I am recommending it to readers interested in microwaves and the growing concerns about their use as weapons.

At first, I thought this might be hard to read due to the scientific elements, but I’m glad to know that the author employs a conversational style of writing, so the topics would be easy to understand for a layman. Thanks for such an insightful review!

Thank you for your insightful review. I know to some extent that microwave is considered harmful to humans, but I never expect that it can be used to torture people. Also, the conversation style is definitely better than a book that is packed with a one-sided narrative, especially when it comes to science topics.

Wow, what a strange topic for a book! I am not interested in learning about torture, but the knowledge about the nervous system might be useful. Thank you for your engaging review!

This certainly is a scary topic, and if there is any validity to it, I hope the authorities are looking into it. I'm glad the author listed his resources for his beliefs, so they can be further researched. Thanks for your well-written and informative review!

If the author explains the human nervous system, then the book is thought-provoking and educational indeed! :) Thanks for a great review!

I had never heard of that; I was interested to hear that there's a lot of information online. It's good that the author has this way of getting the information out there.

I have also heard of people reporting such attacks. I believe that this phenomenon should be investigated so we can get to the bottom of it.

Thank you for providing your honest opinion of this book.
