Generalities aside, what about the specific cases cited? I could have done with fewer, but more in depth cases, though, that said, the range given here is very wide. I find the ones involving young children particularly convincing when they have talked offhandedly, consistently and in detail about people and places in their past lives they could not have plausibly experienced in this one. Cases involving adults are often more problematic as the power of auto suggestion and buried memories from written or visual material seen earlier in life is clearly much greater. Even here, though, there is sometimes a wealth of detail about minor aspects of past lives that has been verified by researchers through looking through arcane records to which the subject could not plausibly have had access. What often is more convincing is the sheer ordinariness of many of the accounts of past lives; they don't all claim to be famous people (though one Swedish girl claimed in the 1950s to be the reincarnation of Anne Frank, but before the latter's diary was published and her name became well known). Some of the case studies involving members of the medical profession and near death experiences are also very intriguing and difficult to account for rationally. On the other hand, the accounts by famous people, e.g. General Patton, Elton John and Brian May of past lives are often rather generic and unconvincing and could have come from any number of other sources.
In sum, an interesting read for anyone with an open mind. I leave the book as I found it, not wholly convinced either way, but open to the fact that there are some human experiences that certainly defy conventional explanation. 3.5/5
For any one interested in finding out about reincarnation this is a good book to start with . The first few chapters on different religions , thought the ones form the Jew day /Christian religions goes more to the fringes of both religion as it dose with Islam. Indeed if any thing reincarnation is more see in the religions of the east as in Buddhism and Hinduism .
While the life stories of different people are interesting some of them are well know . Others not so. The author also looks at the science behind reincarnation and talks to different hypnotherapies , who regress people back to past life’s .
Yet the author dose not shy away for the idea of sceptics of reincarnation . Pointing out one that the subconscious mind can pick up stories as form child hood . Either fiction as in bad time stories or books they have read and then think that they have lived that life when put under hypnoses .
But the end of the book the author says and thinks that if every one believed in reincarnation the world would be a bitter please . Over looking the fact that some people view troubles and trails in this life as pay back for past karma and have no sympathy . In India most people believe in reincarnation yet that his not stopped . The cast system and if any thing reinforced it , into society and cultural beliefs .
