Ms. Roach has been successful in making the serious, fundamental issues of existence and the scientific possibility of an afterlife both entertaining and insightful. I have only read one other book she has authored, Stiff (about the incredible ways in which the human body or parts thereof are used for research and other endeavors after death) and found it to be similarly enjoyable. Roach is adept at keeping her readers engaged by reporting on her research in a up-beat yet journalistic manner, interspersing her reporting frequently with her wry humor. If you have ever wondered about ghosts, near-death experiences, psychics and mediums, ectoplasm, or other "evidence" of the afterlife, Roach provides an objective look at each of these topics and does not disappoint. I would recommend this book for anyone who has ever had questions about life after death (in other words, everyone).
