For nearly 160 years, maverick scientists and scholars have been providing very credible evidence that consciousness survives physical death and continues on in other realms of existence. The legal doctrine of Res Judicata - it has been decided - could have been invoked 100 years ago when esteemed scientists and scholars like Sir William Crookes, Sir Oliver Lodge, Sir William Barrett, and Dr. James H. Hyslop all issued statements in which they said they were convinced that there is a spirit world and that we live on in that spirit world after physical death. Yet, mainstream science, orthodox religion, and the media have rejected and ridiculed the evidence.

Apparently seeing the ridicule heaped on men like Crookes, Lodge, Barrett, and Hyslop, modern scientists and scholars have been reluctant to take a stand, even after closely examining evidence that strongly suggests a spirit world and, concomitantly, life after death.

Dr. Jan W. Vandersande, the author of this book, is a rare exception. He does not sit on the fence like so many others. He comes right out and tells the reader what he has observed and what he believes. He mentions observing flying trumpets, seeing ectoplasm, and hearing spirit voices through the trumpet. "Those experiences changed my life in at least two ways," Vandersande, who holds a doctorate in physics and served professorships at the University of Witwatersand, South Africa, and at Cornell University, tells the reader. "Firstly, it gave me the conviction that there is life after death. Secondly, it made it possible for me to be able to critically read much of the literature about psychic and paranormal phenomena.

I tend to be a skeptic when it comes to the topic of life after death, but I read a lot on the topic because I'm looking for the evidence that will make me a believer. I started off reading this with a healthy dose of skepticism, but when the author describes his own personal experiences and analyzes them using scientific methodology (he has a PhD in Physics) some of the skepticism disappeared. He also provides supplemental evidence to support his claims. Quite honestly - the whole notion of ectoplasm creeped me out, but after reading through it it becomes life affirming. I do think he has provided some of the best evidence to support life after death, but furthermore his professional credentials and reputation are solid and that is what ultimately made me believe that he has the answer.

Having myself experienced sittings with several talented physical mediums, I was pleased to see the author's accounts of this extremely rare and wonderful phenomena. There are also warnings to the reader concerning the ease with which some of the phenomena could be faked. I can also vouch for the reality of ectoplasm and materialization as I have experienced it personally. This book is factual,detailed and honest. The materialization pictures were fascinating and worthy of study. There were some minor formatting problems in the Kindle edition and no doubt these will be corrected soon. Altogether an extremely good account of psychic research!

The French astronomer Camille Flammarion wrote, "I do not hesitate to affirm my conviction, based on personal examination of the subject, that any man who declares the phenomena [of spirit communication] to be impossible is one who speaks without knowing what he is talking about; and, also that any man accustomed to scientific observation - provided that his mind is not biased by preconceived opinions - may acquire a radical and absolute certainty of the reality of the facts alluded to." He added elsewhere, "It is by the scientific method alone that we may make progress in the search for truth. Religious belief must not take the place of impartial analysis. We must be constantly on our guard against illusions."

These words are particularly meaningful when examining the book by Dr. Jan W. Vandersande, "Life After Death: Some of the Best Evidence." Even though Flammarion was a scientist who spoke professionally about the reality of spirit communication, he lived long ago and the tendency by many today is to discount earlier scientists as being too gullible and not in possession of the latest technology. Flammarion was not the lone spiritualist in scientific circles of his day, of course, but it is refreshing to find scientists today who are unafraid to speak out in defense of phenomenon they have rigorously tested with the use of the scientific method.

Vandersande is such a person and his book lays out quite clearly his personal experiences with spirit communication and materialization along with his evaluation of it. A reader cannot escape the fact that he, because of his education and training, is a qualified observer - someone who would not be duped by chicanery.

Format: Paperback
Is there really life after death? It sure seems that way. Even before reading this book, I believed life continues in the spiritual world. After reading it, I feel less inhibited to talk about my own experiences. I've never been in a séance, much less have I seen trumpets flying around the séance room, but I have seen ghosts, angels, and other bodiless energy forms.

Do you ever feel as though you are being watched? What if you actually saw or heard the entity? Vandersande's book, Life After Death, gives many accounts of his sessions over an eight-year period where he personally witnessed such things as ectoplasm and direct voice through trance mediums and channelers. All his experiences are described in detail and with supporting strange-but-true photos.

Materializations of deceased entities are probably the most impressive evidence for life after death. He talks about materialization during sessions he calls sittings or séances in which the medium is usually in trance. This is not hard for me to believe, and probably a pretty acceptable idea to those who have lost a loved one and felt their presence near them thereafter. I have awakened during the night on more than one account to see a bluish-grey figure hovering over my bed. Things have been known to move from one place to another in my house. Thanks to Jan, I now know that these phenomena are due to spirit entities manifesting themselves. Such occurrences were so common in my life that I wrote and published a book about it in 2005.

Vandersande's book is appropriately subtitled Some of the Best Evidence for life after death.
