The Afterlife Experiments : Breakthrough Scientific Evidence of Life After Death Paperback
This exciting account presents provocative evidence that could upset everything that science has ever taught.
Daring to risk his worldwide academic reputation, Dr. Gary E. Schwartz, along with his research partner Dr. Linda Russek, asked some of the most prominent mediums in America-to become part of a series of extraordinary experiments to prove, or disprove, the existence of an afterlife.
This riveting narrative, with its electrifying transcripts, puts the reader on the scene of a breakthrough scientific achievement: contact with the beyond under controlled laboratory conditions.
In stringently monitored experiments, leading mediums attempted to contact dead friends and relatives of "sitters" who were masked from view and never spoke, depriving the mediums of any cues.
The messages that came through stunned sitters and researchers alike.
There are some extraordinary and uncanny revelations, and most amazingof all, Dr. Schwartz was forced by the overwhelming positive data to abandon his skepticism, reaching some startling conclusions.

If ever there was a book that convinced me of life after death this is it! All research is conducted in a very professional manner. Not to mention the medium's are some of the best in the world (in my opinion). Anyone interested in learning about afterlife communications should read this book!

Schwartz started out a skeptic, and found much to believe in. He and his wife started this quest together. This book was the result of much careful testing, and research. It is not the least bit dry, but interesting and entertaining as well as informative.

This book is one of those books that should nail the sceptics argument once and for all. Along with other researchers in the field of parapsychology Dr Schwartz has raised the bar. The Sceptics can only do one thing and that is ignore the evidence whilst they bury their obtuse heads in the sand. This book along with the books of Dean Radin, Rupert Sheldrake and Anthony Peake blows away reductionism and the argument that the material world is all there is. There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.William Shakespeare
Review by Gnorma
This is a scientific study of mediums and their accuracy or lack thereof. If, like me, you are already convinced that communication with the other side is a reality, then you may find this book has too much scientific data, unnecessary discussion, etc. But it is groundbreaking that the study has been done. It will open minds not otherwise receptive to the sixth sensory world. It will give peace of mind to dyed-in-the-wool skeptics. Myself, I skipped through right to the readings, which are interspersed with the author's comments, and found them fascinating. Several mediums, one at a time, would read each sitter and the results are striking and heart warming. I bought this book used for $1 but it's absolutely worth a lot more.
