In Old Souls, journalist Tom Shroder manages this feat and hands us a volume that is considerable and engaging. Not only do we explore the work of a brave and committed researcher on the slippery slope of reincarnation, we are also treated to a remarkable tour of worlds foreign to us: human existence in post-war Beirut and in the depths of poverty in India. Through the entire journey, Mr. Shroder keeps the primary question lively, carrying the reader through to a closing bit of personal memoir that brilliantly ties the book together into a provocative whole.
Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, you can't help but appreciate Mr. Shroder's disciplined, scrupulously fair, and soul-searching explication. Along the way, we learn immensely about the process as it is revealed and a great deal about exploration itself. The book works on many levels, and readers will benefit from them all. --Donald A.

Excellent book that examines reincarnation from a scientific view point. Can it be proven? Interesting research and stories of children with past lives. Read morePublished 1 day ago by PhyMac

This book has a really great title with a really great front cover and some really great reviews, but this book should really be titled, "Several Days in the life of Ian Stevenson"... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Robert Emmerich
