While exploring the evidence for an afterlife, I witnessed some unbelievable things that are not supposed to be possible in our material world. Yet they were unavoidably and undeniably real. Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.
So begins Leslie Kean s impeccably researched, page-turning investigation revealing stunning and wide-ranging evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death. Here she continues her examination of unexplained phenomena that began with her provocative and controversial New York Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. Kean explores the most compelling case studies involving young children reporting verifiable details from past lives, contemporary mediums who seem to defy the boundaries of the brain and the material world, apparitions providing information about their lives on earth, and ordinary people who recount some of the most extraordinary near-death experiences ever recorded. Kean’s first book, and her credibility as a seasoned and well-respected journalist, made people take notice of a topic that many considered implausible. This book will do the same this time enriched by Kean s reactions to her own perplexing experiences encountered while she probed the universal question concerning all of us: Is there life after death?”
This book was absolutely mind blowing. I’d ever thought that anybody would actually be able to make a scientific hypothesis attempting to prove the whole life after death thing. Bust Leslie Kean sure made her case. The whole premise of the book sounded very interesting when I first heard of it and Leslie Kean managed to eloquently state her case and back it up with very plausible and convincing explanation. While the whole life after death is more of a theological debate, Kean managed to approach this question with a scientifical view and it was nothing short of fascinating.
The entire book was divided into four parts each examining a different part of her argument. Kean examines instances of near-death experiences as well as those of children who report details of past lives, mediums who can see and hear things that one cannot simply explain away and extends far beyond what many of us deem to be possible. Although this is not my usual reading fare the book was told in such a way that it kept me engaged and interested throughout the majority of the book. I did tend to zone out at parts where it got overly dense and critical but for the most part, this book managed to hold my interest.
I received this book from the Blogging For Books program in exchange for an honest review.
