Anyone attempting to understand the scientific evidence suggestive of reincarnation MUST read this comprehensive text. Here, Stevenson has assembled an encyclopedia of what is arguably the most compelling aspect of the cases he has documented for over forty years - that some of these young children who claim to have experienced previous lives (or to whom previous lives have been attributed) bear highly unusual birthmarks or suffer from birth defects that correspond with wounds on the alleged "previous personalities" to a degree that defies coincidence. Stevenson's cautious and meticulous nature shine in his delineation of case after case, and ultimately the sheer number of strong, compelling case studies causes one to reexamine one's position on the possibility of reincarnation. At the least, Stevenson has documented a highly puzzling cultural phenomenon too pervasive to ignore. At best, he demonstrates a scientific vision that matches that of the greatest pioneers in the history of science.
If you crave romantic, happy, easy and unambiguous answers to the questions life and consciousness pose this is not the book for you. If your mind is closed either by religion or an outdated paradigm still used by many claiming it is scientific this is not the book for you.
If you understand science and are brave enough to face the fact that there are no easy answers to what is happening in this universe, this is the book for you. I have said it before, Ian Stevenson is the gold standard in reincarnation research. Here you will find no dogma but discriminating investigation.
