More About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859 and died in 1930. Within those years was crowded a variety of activity and creative work that made him an international figure and inspired the French to give him the epithet 'the good giant'. He was the nephew of 'Dickie Doyle' the artist, and was educated at Stonyhurst, and later studied medicine at Edinburgh University, where the methods of diagnosis of one of the professors provided the idea for the methods of deduction used by Sherlock Holmes.

He set up as a doctor at Southsea and it was while waiting for patients that he began to write. His growing success as an author enabled him to give up his practice and turn his attention to other subjects. He was a passionate advocate of many causes, ranging from divorce law reform and the Channel Tunnel to the issuing of inflatable life-jackets to sailors. He also campaigned to prove the innocence of individuals, and his work on the Edjalji case was instrumental in the introduction of the Court of Criminal Appeal. He was a volunteer physician in the Boer War and later in life became a convert to spiritualism.

His greatest achievement was, of course, his creation of Sherlock Holmes, who soon attained international status and constantly distracted him from his other work; at one time Conan Doyle killed him but was obliged by public protest to restore him to life. And in his creation of Dr Watson, Holmes's companion in adventure and chronicler, Conan Doyle produced not only a perfect foil for Holmes but also one of the most famous narrators in fiction. Penguin publish all the books about the great detective, A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, The Valley of Fear, His Last Bow, The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, The Uncollected Sherlock Holmes and The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes.

Format: Paperback
This is probably the best book for any serious searcher for the truth behind the rubbish! I have bought it for all my friends and have read it many times mywelf - each time uncovering new revelation and perception.
In today's 'New Age' climate it is very difficult to wade your way through all the mountains of speculation and fantasy around this subject; to find a book that endeavours to tell at least something of the truth is extremely rare.
Read it - it's good

Arthur Conan Doyle's Book of the Beyond (2006 edition) 10 July 2009
By Dr. Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently lost my dear aunt of 92 years, and this book helped guide me into an understanding what she is now experiencing in the afterlife. There is much to say about the 12 planes of heavenly existence, and Doyle fully articulates descriptions that are both comforting and believable. And if you like what you read, you can continue your spiritual journey through the numerous works published by the White Eagle Lodge, who publishes this book. Inspired reading!
