Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Peake (Is There Life After Death? The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die) offers alternate explanations for life after death and out-of-body experiences. His theories attempt to integrate quantum mechanics, neurology, and consciousness studies to explain what happens at the point of death. In this book, he presents case studies of out-of-body experiences, then attempts to explain them through science. Peake argues that out-of-body experiences, lucid dreaming, remote viewing, and astral travel are all different features of a single phenomenon. While his views are unorthodox, he has a sizable following in the UK. More information on his theories can be found on his website, www.anthonypeake.co.uk. VERDICT For the most part, because of Peake's particularly scientific approach, this book is a difficult read; not recommended for the layperson interested in reading about paranormal events. It touches on a popular paranormal subject, but Peake's cumbersome treatment will deter some fans.—Sandy Knowles, Norfolk P.L., VA
