"A Beginner's Guide to Life After Death" was written through automatic writing. The author, Peter Shires, received communication through several "spirits", 2 of whom shared a great amount of information re: life both here, and on the "other side".
Much of the information concerns "universal laws" - how they work, and how they impact us. Two of the "laws" covered are that of cause and effect, and karma - however several others are discussed as well.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in spirituality & after-death communications. It's an easy read, and yet is filled to the brim with great spiritual insights. A word of caution though - an open mind is a must!
