This is an excellent book, especially for anyone wanting to learn more about the "afterlife" or "spirit world" who started getting interested in it during the last few years. David Fontana was a prolific writer in the area of parapsychology in England—born in 1934 and died in 2010, (five years after this book was published) He was also president of the Society for Psychical Research for three years and very active in the field. He taught in colleges, wrote all kinds of books about getting in touch with the spirit, such as about meditation. Being a teacher, he knew about most of what had been discovered since the founding of the Society for Psychical Research, when people decided that it is mandatory for humans to find out more about the spirit world, other than what we were being taught in churches. He had accumulated an enormous amount of knowledge about this field by the time he wrote this book.

The reason I said "in the last few years" is that most of the recent books I've been reading have been about Near Death Experiences. NDEs are indeed a superior way to find out about the spirit world, but previously, before the internet and the development of life-saving medical technology, mediums, seances, "sittings," reports of ghosts and so on were the primary way people could find out about the eternal life of our souls.

I had not realized this, so when I bought this book (published in 2005, after all, after many good books about NDE research had been published, starting mainly with Raymond Moody with Life After Life in 1975 or so) I thought it was going to be mostly about NDEs or Eastern religions. But David Fontana started gathering knowledge long ago, and he reports what he knows about. And it is a LOT! I'm having a delightful time reading it, as, in the NDE books, the information coming from mediums is not as much reported. So I'm learning a lot.

Fontana is a good writer, easy to understand, and his research is thorough. One person writing a review here said they thought that the author should not have gone into so much detail to demonstrate why the nay-sayers are wrong about their nay-saying about the various paranormal reports. However, for me, the nay-sayers are a huge hindrance to getting the research we need done, done, to demonstrate the veracity of what has been experienced. The VAST amount of material out there speaks for itself! Or does it? No, not with the nay-sayers. They say the same thing over and over. "It's just this" or "that" etc. And that's why we need better studies. There is less money available than willingness to perform these studies. Where does research money come from? The government. Who influences the government? The materialist reductionist science community.
Read Penny Sartori's experience, in her latest book, with trying to do all the work, herself, for the excellent 5 year NDE study she designed. After one year of finding she had no time at all the live her life, close to exhaustion, she had to simplify the study. What a shame. And you won't find one single nay-sayer reading a book such as this one, chock full of proof! They listen to each other with rapt attention, convinced they know the truth already, so what would be the point of doing research on it?

This book by an English psychologist is almost 500 pages long, and is perhaps the best and most comprehensive treatment on the subject of an afterlife. It discusses cases of mediums, out of body and near death experiences, ghosts, poltergeists, reincarnation, electronic voice phenomenon (EVP). The author discusses dozens of cases (from both past literature and personal experience) to make compelling arguments for the existence of an afterlife or consciousness following post mortem death.

With Michael Tymm & Jeffrey Mishlove's reviews already posted here, I should do little more than defer to & recommend their reviews. Considering their expertise in the study of parapsychological/survival studies. I am little more than a late comer to Dr. Fontana's book- but I have to add that this is THE book to seek out when embarking upon a personal inquiry into this field. Masterfully and engagingly written, often with first hand accounts of experiences in the lab as well as in the field with mediums, and seance circles. His overview of both the 'cross correspondences' case and the Scole Experiment are concise and erudite. This provides a sound background for understanding both cases. His revaluation of the voice mediumship of Leslie Flint and John Sloan is welcome and worthy of further study.

His somewhat sympathetic view of the events surrounding George Meek and the Spiricom is curious; I still feel there remain significant unanswered questions before serious consideration can be given to this experiment.

To repeat myself, when you begin a laypersons study of parapsychology & the question of survival- make this your first book purchase. You will not be disappointed. As the alleged spirit of Frederick Myers communicating through British psychic Matthew Manning in 1972 wrote, "Carry on trying (to answer the question of life after death) though because you could soon be close to the secret. If you find it no-one will believe you anyway."

Courtesy of Mr. David Fontana, we have been endowed with this unquestionable gem of scholarship. In dealing with the many allegedly peculiar phenomena of the world, he reveals in depth some of the greatest evidence for life after death that have been gathered in the annals of psychical research. He evaluates the possible (impossible?) normal explanations for nearly all of the documented occurrences (and the hypothesis of Super ESP, etc) and reveals why all seem to come short of explaining some of the best cases, and certainly the totality of the research. This is very well researched, and though tedious at times, it is nevertheless very compelling reading and research material. I cannot recommend it enough.
In addition to this book, I'd recommend the books by Chris Carter, "Randi's Prize" by Robert McLuhan, and the joint book between parapsychologists and the critics of the research called "Debating Psychic Experience: Human Potential or Human Illusion?" The Bibliography of all of these books (including Fontana's) will give you an inexhaustible supply of material to research.

Best of wishes,

I'm not an author so I don't know exactly what goes in to creating a book. I can only imagine the hours that David Fontana spent doing the research for this book. It's not a quick read, but absolutely not a boring one. If your on the fence and your still not quite sure that there is an afterlife, you really should take the time and read this book. I've been on a mission the past 6 years, learning about all the different types of religion, so I also began looking at the subject from a scientific point of view. After reading this book, I Am so sure that there is an afterlife, I am no longer afraid to die. Thank you David for all your time writing this Great book!
