Book Review: The Afterlife Experiments

October 21, 2004 - Book reviews ...

I have decided in addition to letters and comments from readers I am going to throw the odd book review into my blog. Some of these will be new books, some older, and I will be saving them in the recommended reading section of Living With Your Psychic Gifts. I will only review books that I can recommend. If you are a writer on psychic topics, and would like to have your book reviewed here, please contact me and I will send you an address where I can receive evaluation copies and galleys.

Book Review: The Afterlife Experiments
Gary E Schwartz, Ph.D with William Simon
Atria Books
ISBN 0-7434-3659-8

The Afterlife Experiments is an intriguing study of some of the top mediums in the United States today. The author has managed to pull together a "Dream Team" of mediums including Suzane Northrop, John Edward, George Anderson and several others who were asked to contact deceased loved ones in a series of experiments.

The transcripts from these reading leave little doubt that something incredible is happening when these gifted people get to work. Schwartz clearly started out as an interested skeptic, but the data he uncovered quickly led him to realize there was more than cold reading and self-deception going on. Skeptical arguments are fairly considered, but it is clear from the evidence that there are often moments where the mediums are made aware of details that it would be impossible to know, unless they are in fact speaking to the consciousness of the dead.

The Afterlife Experiments is destined to become a classic in the library of any spiritual seeker, but it is only the first step in a long path to discovery. Much more research needs to be done if we are finally to pierce the veil that blocks our understanding of the world beyond. It is an important work because it takes a serious and cautious approach to the subject, making the conclusions that much more credible and compelling.
