    One Reply to “Surviving Death: Evidence of the Afterlife”

    1. Investigative journalist Leslie Kean takes a close look at a wide variety of unexplained phenomena in order to answer the age old question- does human consciousness survive death intact with the memories, personality, and uniqueness that was exhibited in life? I found her evidence astonishing.Much of her research into near-death experiences (NDEs), I had been exposed to in other books. But, the chapters about children remembering past lives, psychic mediums and physical mediums was entirely new [...]

    2. "Hypeness" Rating: 3.0Book received through Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. * Review Posted on thebookuniverse.weebly/ *Summary:So begins Leslie Keans impeccably researched, page-turning investigation revealing stunning and wide-ranging evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death. Here she continues her examination of unexplained phenomena that began with her provocative and controversial New York Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go [...]

    3. The issue of personal survival after physical death is a sensitive one involving everyone. Such religious traditions as address the issue disagree as do individuals. The evidence is elusive, interpretations of it widely varying.I approach the matter with prejudice, agreeing with the old Buddhist tradition that dwelling on such matters is not conducive to what ought most matter. Yet it's noteworthy that some Buddhist traditions do precisely just that.Kean's book is also prejudiced in the presumpt [...]

    4. If you've never read a book about afterlife experiences, Surviving Death is a good place to start. Kean devotes a chapter to each kind of afterlife experience -- reincarnation, near-death experience, death-bed visitors etc -- and in each chapter she explores all aspects of cited instances, looking for other possible explanations. This would be a great book for a skeptic to read.Thank you, Netgalley, for the e-review edition of this book.

    5. I've always wondered, for as long as I can remember, if there is anything beyond physical death. When I spotted this book on Blogging for Books, I knew I had to read it and I was fortunate enough to order the last available print copy for review.There are some fascinating real life stories and situations in this book that can't be explained rationally. One of the stories I was already familiar with, after watching it on tv a few years ago. This was the story of the young boy who felt he had live [...]

    6. What happens when your two-year old son remembers actual, verifiable names of fellow pilots, technical aircraft details, and the moment the Japanese shot down his plane in the battle for Iwo Jima from his past-life in WWII? What happens when, as a professional, skeptical journalist, you visit a medium and she tells you the most obscure details of your deceased brother's life? What happens when you later ask that deceased brother for a sign that he is really "there" and the next day he sends you [...]

    7. This book provided questions rather than answers- a humbling reminder that there is so much we don't understand about human consciousness and so much that Western science cannot explain. As an atheist with no framework for death besides an absolute and material end, I found this book particularly comforting in the wake of loss. Ultimately this book reminded me we can, and should, question everything we somehow convinced ourselves is fact along the way.

    8. Listened to this on audio. Much of it I loved and was very interested. Some of it (the medium parts) did not interest me at all. I would only recommend if this subject is one you like to explore.

    9. If you’ve read a lot of metaphysical books, how much you like this one will probably depend on how much new information you discover, as well as how interested you are in mediumship–-mental, trance and physical. Author Linda Kean starts the book off with the topic of reincarnation, specifically cases involving children who remember past lives. The two main American cases looked at are the James Leininger and Ryan Hammons ones. Also discussed is the work of the late Ian Stevenson and his succ [...]

    10. This is a great book. I’d be hard pressed to find a better one for a general audience on the reasons we need to take survival research and its findings seriously. In fact, it’s so good, so clear and well-organized, that I’ve read it three times, recommended it to friends and family, and will continue to give it as a special gift to those I think might appreciate its worth. To paraphrase a spiritual teacher I know who read it upon my recommendation and loved it: it has the capacity to chang [...]

    11. I've always had the interest of life after death, but not only does this book explore life after death, it also explores reincarnation, coming back to life, mediums/psychics (different elements to their abilities), and kinesis (different kinds). This book has many researchers work, not only her work, but works of MDs (Doctor of Medicine), MSW (Master Social Worker), PhDs (Doctor of Philosophy), DLitt (Doctor of Letters), and MS (Master of Science). All these researchers had put their work, in th [...]

    12. While a fantastic and persuasive overview of the current literature on survivalist theory, the book ends with enthusiastic support of physical mediumship.Unfortunately, everything I’ve ever read in the past makes ectoplasm, hovering spirit trumpets, and other effects clearly the work of fraud, skilled magicians and an easily duped sitting circle. Kean’s support for these makes me wonder whether the earlier chapters are filled with just as many logical gaps or maybe something really is happe [...]

    13. The evidences massed in this book is to keep alive the hypothesis of human consciousness surviving after bodily death. If one search broadly on internet, then the falsification cases overwhelms the reader -- see entries in general on exposed fraudulent cases. But this is not to prove that all crows are white, just that maybe some are. Hence the cases listed in this book are well-documented and thought-provoking. The implication of rejecting the null hypothesis (that all consciousness die at the [...]

    14. I recieved this from Blogging for Books exchange for an honest review. I've always been interested in past lives and how some people can remember who they were. This book was a great insight into past life remembrance. If you are want to learn more you should give this book a read.

    16. *I received this book through Blogging For Books for review. 3.5/5 StarsIs there life after death? Can some mediums really communicate with spirits? Could past life memories be real? These are some of the questions the author explores in this book. Kean investigates cases of near death experiences, past life memories, mediumship, paranormal experiences, and other unexplained phenomena. She features several compelling case studies that seem to provide evidence of the afterlife, as well as expert [...]

    17. I was very impressed by this book. Recognizing the instant dismissal that often comes from scientists in regard to attempted explorations of the question of an afterlife, Kean groundswell her impeccably researched work with chapters written by highly credentialed scientists who have spent decades researching and studying death. Kean applies an appropriately skeptical eye to the material, but definitely transitions toward acceptance of statements repeated by each scientist - we may not know WHAT [...]

    18. “Surviving Death” by Leslie KeanReview written by Diana Iozzia “Surviving Death” is a book of accounts collected by Leslie Kean that she believes to be proof that there is an afterlife, or consciousness about death. Leslie Kean researched for years about certain people who had near death experiences. The main research type she collected is stories in which children knew information about real life people, but the children did not have any prior knowledge of these people. I am very skepti [...]

    19. Fascinating stories. Not exactly the journalistically objective approach promised, but lots of fun. The writing was redundant - telling a story then repeating it to explain how true it is. Still, if books like this are your guilty pleasure like they are for me, you'll enjoy the ride.
