I received a copy of this book from Blogging For Books for review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  This post contains affiliate links.  I am an Amazon affiliate and I may receive a small compensation if you make a purchase through my affiliate links.

While exploring the evidence for an afterlife, I witnessed some unbelievable things that are not supposed to be possible in our material world. Yet they were unavoidably and undeniably real. Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.
So begins Leslie Kean's impeccably researched, page-turning investigation revealing stunning and wide-ranging evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death. Here she continues her examination of unexplained phenomena that began with her provocative and controversial New York Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. Kean explores the most compelling case studies involving young children reporting verifiable details from past lives, contemporary mediums who seem to defy the boundaries of the brain and the material world, apparitions providing information about their lives on earth, and ordinary people who recount some of the most extraordinary near-death experiences ever recorded. Kean's first book, and her credibility as a seasoned and well-respected journalist, made people take notice of a topic that many considered implausible. This book will do the same this time enriched by Kean's reactions to her own perplexing experiences encountered while she probed the universal question concerning all of us: Is there life after death?

Is there life after death?  Can some mediums really communicate with spirits? Could past life memories be real?  These are some of the questions the author explores in this book.  Kean investigates cases of near death experiences, past life memories, mediumship, paranormal experiences, and other unexplained phenomena.  She features several compelling case studies that seem to provide evidence of the afterlife, as well as expert accounts and her own paranormal experiences.  

This was quite the interesting read, but it took me forever to get through because it was jam-packed with information.  It was a well researched book that definitely made me think.  I found the chapters on past life experiences to be extremely fascinating, and other chapters to be...well...strange and very hard to believe (disembodied hands? what?!).

I think you will find this book interesting, whether you believe in the afterlife or not.  I personally am somewhere in the middle.  I've had some strange experiences in the past that made me sort of believe, but it could have just been my mind playing tricks on me. This book does offer compelling evidence, though, and it's definitely worth checking out.
