Editorial Reviews

Review

My friend, Bob Olson, has written a wonderful and well-researched guide to the Afterlife. He carefully answers many of the questions and concerns we all have about the other side. The chapter on past lives resonates very much with my own studies of reincarnation and the benefits of past life regressions. I highly recommend Answers About the Afterlife.

Brian L. Weiss, MD, author of Many Lives, Many Masters


What happens when we die? This is one of humankind's most important and enduring questions. Answers about the Afterlife brings a fresh and exciting perspective to this ancient question. Bob Olson presents an impressive compilation of many lines of evidence that converge on the conclusion that the afterlife is, in a word, real. Innumerable common questions about the afterlife are addressed. This book is well written and enthusiastically recommended.

Jeffrey Long, MD, author of the New York Times bestselling Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences.


There is a universal question every human being longs to answer: What happens when we die? With the keen and thorough eye of an investigative reporter, Bob Olson takes on this question with a loving heart and full-on determination. Sifting through more than fifteen years of intense and exhaustive research, he's created a spiritual encyclopedia of sorts that provides the reader with answers. This is a brave and compassionate book that will bring comfort and insight to many during the most important times of our lives.
 
Cheryl Richardson, author of The Art of Extreme Self Care


Congratulations Bob Olson. Your book: ANSWERS ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE is perhaps one of the most in-depth and comprehensive guides I have ever read on the subject of life after death. I would call it the encyclopedia of the afterlife. This should be required reading for every soul who has ever pondered their heavenly heritage.

James Van Praagh, Spiritual Medium & author of Growing Up In Heaven

Bob Olson has taken his education, experience and passion for being an investigator and applied them to the study of the afterlife, death and dying, and the world of spirit, sharing what these topics can teach us about life. This book is a wonderful map for those seeking their own discoveries as they explore the infinite possibilities.

Anita Moorjani, New York Times Best Selling Author of Dying To Be Me

About the Author

Bob Olson is a former skeptic and private investigator who began investigating evidence of life after death after the passing of his father in 1997. This event ignited questions in Bob that he never before considered, so he decided to use his skills as a private eye to investigate the afterlife. Bob has come to be known as the Afterlife Investigator. He is the host of Afterlife TV with Bob Olson.

More About the Author

A former skeptic and private investigator, Bob Olson has been an Afterlife Investigator & Psychic Medium Researcher since 1999.

In 1997, Bob Olson's father died of lung cancer at the age of 64. Bob was just 35. The event ignited spiritual questions for Bob that he'd never before considered. Is there life after death? If so, what evidence exists to prove it? And, if one could prove the existence of an afterlife, was it also possible to know if our deceased loved ones exist in this afterlife, if they are okay, and if they are watching over us? Bob decided to use his skills as a private investigator to obtain answers, and this was the catalyst for Bob's investigation into the afterlife.

Bob graduated from college in 1985 with a degree in Criminology, where he learned skills such as Crime Scene Investigation, Police Procedure, Surveillance Techniques, Ethics, and Behavioral Sciences. Bob also apprenticed with a private investigation agency where he honed his skills at generating and evaluating evidence, analyzing and interpreting data, presenting findings for legal proceedings, and making ethical judgments.

Bob has always preferred evidence over conjecture, not just in his work but also in his spiritual beliefs. Without evidence, he remained cynically skeptical. And this is how he began his investigation into the afterlife--skeptical, though open minded enough to be willing to investigate it.

In his search for evidence of life after death, Bob has tested hundreds of psychics and mediums, investigated spirit artistry, animal communication, past-life regression, spirit writing, remote viewing, meditation, and channeling, plus he interviewed numerous people who have experienced deathbed visions, near-death experiences, shared-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, dream visitations, past-life recall, and other afterlife phenomena.

Bob's research of the afterlife led him to create BestPsychicMediums.com in 2002, BestPsychicDirectory.com in 2007, and AfterlifeTV.com in 2011. Afterlife TV is the most recent of Bob's resources to guide and educate the public about life after death using an online video format. He also offers a course for psychics and mediums, which is available at PsychicMediumWorkshop.com.

"What happens when we die? And why is this question so prone to debate? Considering the nature of this subject, and how varied beliefs are about it, it's hard to imagine anyone addressing it more sincerely - and, inclusively - than Bob Olson does in this book. In a warm, considerate, and remarkably cogent manner, Bob shares his findings, based on over fifteen years of research using techniques gleaned in his work as a private investigator.
If you can read this book with an open mind, it will go a long way to quell any fears you have about death, or any doubts you have about the existence of an afterlife. Whether you're grieving a loss, seeking answers to bigger questions, or supporting a loved one in their final stages of life, this book, unlike any other, will provide hope and peace of mind."

I just finished reading Bob’s new book on the Afterlife and give it an A+++. The information is so intriguing; I stayed up one night devouring chapter after chapter. It was too good to put down. Of course, based on the quality of the interviews I’ve watched Bob conduct on Afterlifetv.com, how could his book be anything but wonderful, personable, highly readable, down to earth and thorough.

Up until now, when it came to the Afterlife, we only had books that contain a person’s opinion, an organization’s philosophy or a particular religion’s belief system. Bob takes a different approach. The answers in his book are based on his personal experiences in thousands of readings and the personal experiences of the mediums he’s interviewed. It’s crazy how good this book is. I frequently found myself saying, “I always wondered about that” or “I never even considered that”.

Bob’s new book will be at the top of the bibliography I hand out to clients who want more information on metaphysics. I definitely feel this book is a MUST READ.

Since my seemingly perfectly healthy 21-year-old son collapsed and died on 11/2/13 from what we later found was lymphocytic myocarditis, I have been reading nonstop books about the afterlife. It was something I never gave much thought to before and was content to wait and find out when my time came, but losing my precious and amazing son changed all that. I now have to know I will be with him again someday, so I read everything I can on the subject. I had learned about Bob Olson on a Google search and ordered his book as soon as it was available. I have to say it is the best book I have read yet on this subject and gave me answers I hadn't found anywhere else. One of my biggest questions was regarding the circumstances surrounding my son's sudden passing, which could have been scripted in a Hollywood movie. This book gave me some understanding of the forces at work that day that I will never believe were just lucky coincidences that helped me survive the most heartbreaking time of my life, and I'm very grateful to Bob Olson for sharing his vast research in this book. My son was a brilliant young man and a writer, and in his poetry he seemed to prophesize his early death, which now I firmly believe his spirit knew. I'm not to the knowing stage yet but hope with all my heart to be there soon, and I thank Bob Olson for helping me to get there!

I have just downloaded this onto my Kindle app. I have only read the first 25 or so pages, enough that I am sure I am going to love the entire book. I have found myself in some of the listings that give evidence for an afterlife. I had what I call an ODE an Other Dimension Experience. It so startled me, actually knocked my socks right off, that I had to rearrange my entire belief system. I have listened to Bob Olson and gained from his "AfterlifeTV" so I am sure I will love the rest of the book. I am familiar with many people he has already mentioned. My experiences sent me lunging into explanations and researching because I just knew something significant happened to me. But it scared me and was really rough going for a while. I also wrote a book about my experiences: [...] called "Bits & Pieces of A Biologist's Journey Into Spirit." He could have included me in his book as an example of an afterlife experience. I am so loving it that so many of our former beliefs are being questioned and some logical explanations are coming to us though Bob Olson who has spent years collecting and analyzing data. Thank you Bob for sharing your valuable experiences with us. Namaste

I'm not even half-way through with devouring this amazing book by Bob Olson and I can already see that it's beyond valuable and extremely important for anyone who has crossed-over loved ones (that would be all of us), and everyone who has pondered the meaning of life on the earth plane, the soul, Spirit, and what happens when the body dies. It will be important that whoever reads this book does so with an open mind, ready to delve deeply into truths they may not have considered. I love that Bob respects the belief systems of others, however without apologies (and thankfully so), he clearly lays out that which he has come to know regarding the afterlife. This book is a must-read. It's that important. I have already begun to recommend it to family, friends, and the clients who come to me for spiritual counseling and mediumship readings. The peace and comfort that this book will give to grieving folks who truly discover they they have not lost loved ones to death will create a positive, joyous ripple effect around the world. Thank you, Mr. Olson.
