The Fun of Dying is a fascinating, informative, well-written book that accurately describes what we know now about the graduation from Earth school into our next life's adventure that we call death. Death isn't to be feared, and this book clearly explains why. It is an interesting, enlightening read that I highly recommend to anyone who wonders about death and what happens next. --R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D., author Your Eternal Self and Induced After-Death Communication --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Author
"I believe that I have cosmic religious feelings. I never could grasp how one could satisfy these feelings by praying to limited objects. The tree outside is life, a statue is dead. The whole of nature is life, and life, as I observe it, rejects a God resembling man." -Albert Einstein, winner of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics
"I find it as difficult to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science." -Werner von Braun, German-American rocket scientist
"Multiplicity is only apparent, in truth, there is only one mind . . ." -Erwin Schrodinger, winner of the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics
"Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe." -Erwin Schrodinger, winner of the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics
"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these." -Jesus (JN 14:12)
I had an experience of light at the age of eight, and spent the next half-century figuring it out.
I didn't set out to write this whole book. What I wanted to write was Chapters 6 through 8, set in large print and illustrated, something to give dying people to help ease their fears and better prepare them for what is life's most enjoyable adventure. I soon found,though, that to write for the dying and make it remotely believable, I had to tackle the rest of this book.
Although others have undertaken similar research and reached more or less the same conclusions, there are reasons why so few have written about the death event. Evidence is widely available,but it isn't easy to pull together. And to talk about dying with authority is to set oneself against those two modern bastions, mainstream science and mainstream religion, which long ago carved up all truth between them and have thereby shut out any facts that neither of them want to own.
Then too, there is the credentials problem. I am not an attorney by profession, so I am a hobbyist and not a careerist, and there are many professional scholars who could have done a better job of writing this book. The problem is, however, that nearly all researchers have chosen some small, compelling part of what is an enormous picture and made a career out of it, each of them trying to gain some attention without drawing ridicule. After all, if you have academic credentials and if near-death experiences or past life memories or the accuracy of mediums or the zero-point field is your area, then what you hope for is recognition. What you never want is scorn.
Sadly, though, scorn is what these researchers earn, and there are some good reasons for that which you will shortly understand. But knowing that even this field's greatest scholars have been ignored by the scientific community, I have not attempted her to make a scientific case. Instead, I am making my case to you, and using to make it the general tools that you use in your daily life and work: reason, deduction, and common sense. I am not writing for scientists. I only note in passing that for scientific gatekeepers to continue to enforce materialism as a fundamental dogma is as counterproductive now as it once was for scientists stuck in Catholic orthodoxy to insist against evidence that the sun circumnavigates the earth.Truth cannot be suppressed forever, so the academic dam is certain to break. And when it does, the revelations soon to follow about who and what and where we are will change all humanity for the better.
It isn't only scientific oxen that we will be goring here, but some religious folks will be incensed. I am sorry about that. If you prefer to believe whatever it is that your own religion teaches, all I ask is that you be open-minded whenever your own death starts to happen. As you will see, one way to give yourself unnecessary grief is to insist on a certain kind of afterlife. But otherwise, the good news is that the afterlife is not a guessing-game. Catholics and Baptists both get into heaven. And Jews and Buddhists. And everybody else.
(I should add, though, that death by suicide is the opposite of fun. If you have opened this book because you are contemplating hastening your own demise, please skip ahead and read Chapter 9. Then figure out how to get back to living.)
It is time now --- it is long past time --- to talk about death as the adventure that it is.Learn the truth for yourself, and tell everyone you know. With 160,000 people dying daily, it is tragic that in the twenty-first century so many still die in ignorance and fear.

I got no insights here, I found The Fun of Dying rather dry and monotonous, despite it being written in a lighthearted vein.-
There are so very many other interesting and well researched Books dealing with this subject I just didnt feel this one adds anything.
Hopefully though it could spark curiousity and a search for more in depth material, for some readers. There is so much more out there.for anyone interested.
Look at Books by Kenneth Ring,,Raymond Moody .Kubler Ross,., just a few of the Authors who cover this ground well.
Looking forward for next books. To those who gave 1star, and speciallly the Dr Geriatric (Robert M. Hemm ) I am sure the writer would like to know your experiences. Wouldn it be nice to share your experience with her?? That is my suggestion.
Chapter 3 has some misunderstangs abou Quantum Physics. That is a subject that scientists need a life to grasp, so complex it is. So, that fact apology the chapter 3.
