Overview

Richard Matheson's bestselling novel, What Dreams May Come, the basis for the hit movie starring Robin Williams, touched numerous readers with its convincing portrait of life after death, based on years of research and personal reflection. Like that earlier book, The Path is a work of inspirational fiction that comes straight from Matheson's own deeply held beliefs about spirituality and true nature of existence. The story of one man's encounter with an enigmatic stranger who imparts to him ten lessons about the true reality of the soul; The Path is not so much a novel as a philosophical dialogue about life and the afterlife.

Everyone who read What Dreams May Come and wants to know more about Matheson's personal philosophy should take a walk along . . . The Path.

'The Path' is a work that will never be far from my mind or heart (or doer and breath-form). It has given me a whole new perspective on life and all of the meanings of the soul, the body, and the true point to why we are all here. An excellent peace of work by Matheson. I hope to one day acheve that flash in my mind that will show me the path.
