In this book the author "explores the 'great transition' between life and the after-life. He surveys the powerful evidence of survival after death suggested by the accounts of those who have 'died' and come back to life again, by direct communication between the dead and the living, by the work of mediums, and by the memories some people claim to have of previous lives". -- back cover.
