The Afterlife: An Investigation Into the Mysteries of Life After Death

Randles, Jenny, & Hough, Peter

 This is a popular overview of the various types of evidence for survival of bodily death with a participatory twist for the reader. At the end of each chapter the authors, who investigated many of the cases included at first hand, summarize the evidence for and against. The reader is asked to give his/her own rating from 1-10 on the subject of each chapter after reading it. Readers total their score at the end, and the concluding chapter assists them in evaluating their score. The 13 preceding chapters cover the universal global belief in survival; demonic and angelic beings; mediums; survival of skills, e.g., deceased artists, musicians, etc. purportedly still creating via mediums; ghosts; poltergeists; haunted houses; survival of animals; electronic voice phenomena; computer and video ghosts; past lives; OBEs; and NDEs. This is a helpful introduction to the survival problem for nontechnical readers. It emphasizes British cases and information sources and the authors are British. As the authors are also investigators, it contains fresh cases, unlike most books of this genre.
Publisher Information:New York: Berkeley Books, 1993. 240p. Bibl: 238-239; 51 illus; Index: 240
