I was expecting a "Fresh" book with new stores, new research not a book about other books.

Many of the stories you have heard before, if you've read quite a few reincarnation book; but it's nice to have them all together in this book.

If you're just getting into reading about reincarnation, this book is probably a good place to start. Many sources are mentioned and compiled in one volume of very interesting stories.

However, if you've already done some reading on the subject, you'll probably find that many of the stories are familiar. People who've been into reincarnation for a while would probably do better to read the books that these stories are taken from.

The book is also riddled with typos, so I'm not going to give it any more than 3 stars. In the era of spell-checking software, there's no reason for any book to spell "was" as "wass".

After just reading several book on Reincarnation this week I felt a bit cheated by this book. It is well written and as the other review says it is a good book for someone who is just starting out reading about this subject. I had just read Ian Steven's book and his cases are in this book, just not as detailed. Jenny Cockell's Yesterday's Children is also here as well as Brian Weiss, and about 20 other authors as well. I was expecting a "Fresh" book with new stores, new research not a book about other books. It is like picking up a herbal book and seeing the same book repeated over and over as I have been the unfortunate victim of by authors who cannot do their own research for. The author repeats that he is the publisher of a reaincarnation magazine (I cannot find) so his stories are all from sources not his own. Get it from a library or buy it used.

This is really an excellent reincarnation book. It covers many aspects of the topic, and has lots of stories. Many of the stories you have heard before, if you've read quite a few reincarnation book; but it's nice to have them all together in this book. It also does not take a "rigid" view of the topic--i.e. you come back to learn lessons about love & life, to pay back karma, etc.--it basically proposes that you just come back, and there appears to be many reasons for doing so. In other words, Stemman doesn't propose he has reincarnation all figured out, much as Brian Weiss and other past life writers seem to do.

There's also a fabulous quote in the book by English journalist Hannen Swaffer concerning the idea cruel people in one lifetime must reap what they sow in another..."we must always have cruelty in order that torturers may themselves suffer in turn. Why, then, strive for human betterment? Why seek to end war? Why work for the ideal social order?"

Why, indeed?

I bought the book because it was recommended as the best book to get started in reading about re-encarnation. Big mistake, this is s collection of short news, notes, or anecdotes with no substance at all. It does not cover any research done on this aspect, or documented cases. Most cases refer to early 20th century, or in India, where there has not been any documentation. Do not spend your money on this book, get another one.

The author has read many serious works on reincarnation and presented a sampling of "best hits." This is a popular work, not a scholarly one -- he doesn't even cite his sources for the individual stories, although he does provide a bibliography.

He also makes a few factual mistakes -- for example, Charlemagne did not live 10,000 years before Napoleon (p. 4) (he probably meant to write 1,000). Ancient Egypt was preoccupied with death and the afterlife, but reincarnation does not seem to be part of their belief system (as stated on p. 7). (See, for example, the Wikipedia entry on Ancient Egyptian Religion.)

I imagine that Jains would take offense to his statement that "Hinduism gave birth to Sikkism and Jainism in India..." (p. 7). It is unclear at what point the prototype of modern Hinduism emerged in ancient times, but surely Jainism is an Indian religion of great antiquity, and not simply a derivative of Hinduism. (it is true that all three religions accept the doctrine of reincarnation, though.)

Mr. Stemman mentions the view of Britain's Lord Dowding that "those who sowed the seeds of abominable cruelty at the time of the Inquisition reaped their own harvest at Belsen and Buchenwald." Although I find this to be an atrocious idea, I can't blame Stemman for it -- only for giving it enough credence to be mentioned in passing. As the old adage goes, "Not everything that is said should be written, and not everything that is written should be published."

Chapter 8 (pp. 72-81) treats us to a lurid perspective on the Karmapa succession controversy in Tibetan Buddhism. Stemman surely is not guilty of Robert Frost's famous definition of a liberal as a man who can't take his own side in an argument.

I was really looking for an account of the past life memories of children (ala Ian Stevenson), but the book also covers the more fantastical accounts of people who "remember" past lives through hypnosis or dreams. To me these regressions, especially the group hypnosis ones, are much less convincing, and they take away from the more serious accounts in the book.
