Publisher Comments:

A riveting firsthand account of one manand#8217;s mission to investigate and document some of the most astonishing phenomena of our timeand#8212;children who speak of past life memory and reincarnation.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;All across the globe, small children spontaneously speak of previous lives, beg to be taken and#8220;home,and#8221; pine for mothers and husbands and mistresses from another life, and know things that there seems to be no normal way for them to know. From the moment these children can talk, they speak of people and events from the pastand#8212;not vague stories of centuries ago, but details of specific, identifiable individuals who may have died just months, weeks, or even hours before the birth of the child in question.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;For thirty-seven years, Dr. Ian Stevenson has traveled the world from Lebanon to suburban Virginia investigating and documenting more than two thousand of these past life memory cases. Now, his essentially unknown work is being brought to the mainstream by Tom Shroder, the first journalist to have the privilege of accompanying Dr. Stevenson in his fieldwork. Shroder follows Stevenson into the lives of children and families touched by this phenomenon, changing from skeptic to believer as he comes face-to-face with concrete evidence he cannot discount in this spellbinding and true story.


A seasoned reporter investigates the past life memories of young children who claim to recall former families, lives and places. Photos.

CINDY PICKLE, August 25, 2009 (view all comments by CINDY PICKLE)
it is amazing what some will try to pass off as journalism or science. what passes for a rational argument in this book is (get this) the lack of proof that the phenomena of reincarnation does not exist is
proof that it does. oh. this is a far cry from science. perhaps a cry for help? the author is clearly not objective, let alone (as he purports to be) skeptical. while i completely support anyone's right to author a book full of interesting anecdotes
and goofy speculation, to try and pass it off as anything more than that is kind of sad.
