Publisher Comments:

John Edward, Suzane Northrup, and George Anderson are just a few of the prominent American mediums who have been accused of being frauds. But what if a respected scientist challenged them to make contact with the beyond under controlled laboratory conditions? What if the results not only stunned a skeptical scientist but also offered astonishing answers to a timeless question: Is there life after death?

THE AFTERLIFE EXPERIMENTS

Risking his academic reputation, Dr. Gary E. Schwartz asked well-known mediums to become part of a series of experiments to prove, or disprove, the existence of an afterlife. This riveting narrative, with electrifying transcripts, documents stringently monitored experiments in which mediums attempted to contact dead friends and relatives of "sitters" who were masked from view and never spoke, depriving the mediums of any cues.

Here are the results that awed sitters and researchers alike: a revelation about a son's suicide, what a deceased father wanted to say about his last days in a coma, the transformation of a man's lifelong doubts about the afterlife, and, most amazing of all, a forecast of a beloved spouse's death. Forced by data to abandon skepticism, Schwartz presents this amazing account of his groundbreaking work, compelling from first page to last.

Synopsis:

This book provides astonishing answers to a pair of timeless questions: Is there life after death? Are love and life eternal?

Daring to risk his worldwide academic reputation, Dr. Gary E. Schwartz asked some of the most prominent mediums in America — including John Edward, Suzanne Northrup, and George Anderson — to participate in a series of stringently controlled experiments.

The book, coauthored with bestselling writer William L. Simon, describes in fascinating, fast-reading style how the results banished Dr. Schwartz's skepticism and filled him with a sense of wonder and awe.

Through electrifying transcripts and eye-witness commentary, Schwartz and Simon put readers right on the scene as the mediums contacted dead friends and relatives of "sitters, " people unknown to the mediums and even in remote locations. The messages they received ranged from moving revelations about a son's suicide to a father's thoughts during his last days in a coma, to an uncanny forecast of a beloved spouse's death. Based on the most objective, untainted, and convincing evidence ever collected, The Afterlife Experiments will reshape the way we think about the boundary between life and death.

I believe anyone reading this book will have to be convinced that consciousness continues after physical death. Dr. Schwartz is inexhaustible and ingenious in his efforts to rule out fraud, accident, and even remote viewing and telepathy as the cause of his results. His credentials are unimpeachable. A must read for anyone mourning the death of a loved one.
