This book begins with an introduction to the concept of reincarnation throughout human history, from prehistory to ancient Egypt to Hindu society and early Christianity. It continues on to explain why reincarnation is a belief beneficial to our world: people who believe they will be reborn on this Earth are more likely to care about the environment and improving their world for the future, for example. Finally, Mann presents some basic evidence for the reality of reincarnation such as anecdotes about children with memories of past lives and that studies of past-life memories of today's folks show remarkable consistency with the demographics of the people of the past. The book's greatest strength, that it conveys much information in very short chapters, is also its greatest weakness because several key concepts fundamental to a belief in reincarnation are given such a short examination that they are unlikely to persuade anyone who is not already a believer in rebirths and past lives. This is an excellent read for those wishing to have a basic overview of reincarnation, but a true unerstanding of the subject must be followed up by more in-depth reading and study, as well as visits to Hindu temples or past-life regression sessions.
