Product Description

Review

"Those who think they already know the answers don't need to waste their time with this book. For the rest of us, it is a gem. We should drop the pretense that the question of survival is not worthy of the attention of really smart people. It is and always has been the key question of humans throughout history. Thank you, Chris Carter, for shedding light on this, the Greatest Question."

I have often heard it said, usually by those who have not really looked for it, that there is no evidence to support the assertion that we survive physical death. Perhaps sometimes what is meant is that there is insufficient evidence to constitute proof beyond reasonable doubt. Either way there is a vast amount of evidence available to those with a genuine interest. Some of this evidence appears to have been meticulously researched by individuals who were apparently, at least initially, highly sceptical. Some of them were the finest minds of their day.

Chris Carter's latest book won't convince a confirmed cynic, however it is clearly stated that this is not the author's intention. For those who haven't formed a final view on the matter and remain open-minded, this book contains a few of what the author considers to be the most evidential reports. Chris Carter's analysis of the reports is forensic and detailed.

The examples given are very interesting and diverse. In most cases it is difficult to see any explanation for them other than survival or fraud. In some of the cases cited, the fraud would need to have been gargantuan and have involved highly respected persons with no obvious motive. In the words of Jung; ""I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud".

Although I don't have much interest in Reincarnation, there was much of interest apart from that; I particularly appreciated Chris Carter's treatment of the Chess Game between Korchnoi and, apparently, a long dead Chess Grandmaster, Maroczy, and his analysis of the purported communications from Myers.

In some ways the book reminded me a little of "Is There An Afterlife?

Excellent book - Chris Carter has taken the time and trouble to collate a huge number of convincing cases for the continuance of Consciousness after death in a well written lucid style.

He well describes the absolute stupidity of some of the so-called 'scientific community' who insist against overwhelming evidence that when life leaves the body that is 'the end'; he states that this branch of scientific enquiry is the only one which has a whole range of die-hards trying to refute every finding and to prove it wrong - he is absolutely correct! I just wonder what IS their agenda - are they afraid of facing the truth and why?

I, personally have had several proofs, without the possibility of fraud or wishful thinking of the continuance of 'life' after death and it angers me that these die-hard skeptics dare to debunk my experiences.

Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinions but why go out of your way to so vehemently debunk those of others when proof is actually there if you want to find out!

This book says all this and is definitely recommended as an extremely good, informative read. Well worth anyone's time

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Robert S. Bobrow, MD on 1 Nov. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book. It is simply written and easy to read. The three sections cover evidence suggestive of reincarnation, (like near death experiences and children who remember past lives), ghosts and apparitions, and communication with the dead (via mediums). Many examples and possible explanations are given. Although the author believes there is more to life than living, the merely curious will find much to satisfy their curiosity. The book is a comprehensive reference work, and a pleasant read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When Chris Carter's first book, Science and Psychic Phenomena, came out he mentioned he'd originally tried to do it all in a single volume, but was advised to separate it into three. In doing so he's given himself the room to do full justice to the various different topics. His first two instalments tackled psi research and NDEs. With this latest book on survival-related research - spirit communications, ghosts and apparitions and memories of a past life - he has carried his ambitious trilogy to a triumphant conclusion.

This is more than a survey; it's an uncompromisingly partisan argument in favour of survival. The last person to make the case with philosophical rigour was Robert Almeder some twenty years ago, and it's fitting that the book includes an foreword by him. An earlier one was by CJ Ducasse, which Carter frequently references, also perhaps CD Broad's Lectures in Psychical Research, but these of course didn't include near-death experiences or evidence for reincarnation. Stephen Braude's Immortal Remains is up there too, but, like Broad, he's more concerned with exploration than in making a committed statement. So it's not a crowded field.

The advantage of having plenty of room is that the topics are pretty comprehensively covered, with case studies representing a good range of evidence and illustrating all the main issues. It's also admirably laid out and structured. Much of the material is probably familiar to anyone who is reasonably well read in psychic research. On the other hand there were quite a few examples which I was glad to be reacquainted with, and others which were completely new, leaving me with the feeling that I don't know as much as I thought I did.
