From Publishers Weekly
On the basis of a two-year research project involving "past-life regression" psychiatrist Moody ( Life After Life ) here argues that such experience, in some cases luring intrepid spiritual voyagers back to the Stone Age, are more common than is generally believed, and can be induced by hypnosis in almost anyone. Whether or not this makes a new case for reincarnation or merely represents the play of alternate states of consciousness, the author avows that forays into the past may trigger spiritual and psychological revelations, sometimes mirroring the subject's present life conflicts--or acting as a catharsis. In a book of interest mainly to the already converted, Moody offers an audio script as a guide to self-hypnosis, although better results, he stresses, are achieved with the help of a regression-trained hyponotherapist.

Sure enough (and as I have just literally learned), the good doctor did indeed endure troubled times and may have put pen to a heavy heart for COMING BACK. But it is precisely during crisis that we must find a balance – or sit on the fence, if you will – to clear through the mind’s fog and consider all legitimate explanations of the regression phenomenon.
COMING BACK is filled with an excellently chosen sampling of regression reports which will take seasoned Afterlifers back a step or two to stay grounded. Although persuasive on their own accord to lend support to the Beyond, Dr. Moody directs the attention toward the “establishment” diagnoses (e.g., Crytpomnesia, Xenoglossia, Hypnagogy), alongside the strictly therapeutic value of past-life regressions.
Afterlifers will no doubt be challenged by this work, and may ultimately agree with his conclusion: “At their least, they are deep revelations from the subconscious. At their most, they are evidence of life before life.”
