1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading sub-title, 20 July 2013
This review is from: Is There Life After Death?: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die (Paperback)
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.

That's fine by me because the last thing we want is a book like this written by a scientist. They come with too much intellectual baggage and per-conditioning..and it takes a more streamlined mind like Peak's to cut through this intellectual jungle and narrow-mindedness and present the bigger picture of life, and indeed death, beyond our currently restricted and mundane world view. Trouble is: in this book Peake hardly discusses the subject of life after death.
