This is most definitely not a book explaining "the extraordinary science of what happens when we die".

It contains no real science at all (hard theory and proof) which given the premise is hardly surprising. If science could prove life after death with the knowledge we now have available a scientist would have done it by now.

Anthony Peake is not (and does not claim to be) a scientist. Like many non-scientists he seems fascinated by the implications of quantum physics and the Theory of Relativity, and also like many non-scientists he produces pages of theories based on marrying these genuine ideas with his own speculations. He also quotes numerous subjective experiences (NDEs etc) from other books that quote subjective experiences from other boooks, that quote.....and so on. Of hard science, you will find none here.

Basically,Peake seems to want to prove reincarnation scientifically. Hard science (if it ever became available) might actually convince a sceptic. This book will not.

The only bad thing about this book is its title, which gives the impression you'll read about mediumship or psychical research. You won't. This work is soundly based on the latest findings of Quantum Physics and, in a stroke that amounts almost to genius, elects to take their implications seriously. The result is a book that should be required reading in every school in the country. This is reality not as we experience it, but as it must be. I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone concerned with the big questions in life. (Including whether there is life after death, but, oddly, that's the least important question.)

Anthony Peake is one of those writers you never tire of. He always has something new to tell. His unique views are incredibly interesting.

I do not have a scientific background and i don't have a Phd or even a degree ! What i do have is a love of Books From every Genre and a desire to expand my mind I was on a course at the Arthur Findlay College and Anthony Peake The author of this book was presenting a talk on his work . His talk was one of the highlights of the week . I met him very briefly and purchased two of his books and have just finished " Is there Life after Death ".I found it a fascinating Read . Even when i came across sections within the book which i would actually question in relation to my own understanding and beliefs i found it well written and informative . I could not put it down and as i had an aversion to Physic's and all things scientific in my younger years this was quite an achievement .As someone who firmly believes in Life after death anyway due to personal experiences this book has opened up a world to me that i had never dreamt that i would ever be interested in which is further exploring the scientific aspects of Peakes research . I am also epileptic which has effected me profoundly throughout my life so Peake's interest in the function of the brain and the way he explains the science , the Neurology and the scientists views that back up his writng simply blows me away . Whether you agree with Anthony Peake's theorys or Disagree with him this book succeeds in doing the one thing that a writer should aim for ? It opens up debate , promotes conversation , is informative and educational . Peake's writing appeals to all readers from the man on the street to the professor in the laboratory and that for me is a massive achievement .I have been involved in investigating the paranormal as a hobby on a part time basis and this book has given me the desire to further my studys in that field in a more scientific manner .This is a book to discuss over Dinner or whilst supping a pint ! Its a book that will court contraversy and produce heated debates ? but is'nt that what good writing is all about . Is'nt it great when a book produces a thirst for learning more in a reader ? For that push in the right direction i will be indebted to Anthony Peake .

If Frank Pickle from the Vicar of Dibley wrote books, it would probably be this one. Talk about going round the houses to get to the point. There were some interesting parts but In the same way as your mrs giving you the run down of her shopping trip for shoes at BHS and then dropping in the words " naked lady" ; your ears would prick up for a moment, but then she would go off on a tangent about the benefits of shoe polish. This is the closest analogy I could think of for describing this book. The author drops in a few tasty morsels of information to make you interested for a few minutes, but then soon drifts back into tedium. The book would have been a much better read with some editing.

The answer is still "maybe" except in this case it's - maybe the same again.

The first thing that must be said is that you could not get a more thorough researcher than Anthony Peake. Apart from this being an excellent book if you are on a quest for the truth of reality, his research has saved you MONTHS of trawling thro to find the gems hidden in this book. Of course he has his own theory, but the reader is taken thro his research and asked to make up their own minds. The only reason i find Anthony Peakes theory hard to swallow is because i find it uncomfortable to contemplate and not that i find it unreasonable. 5 stars to this book and deservedly so.
