A Journalist Investigates Evidence For An Afterlife

“Astounding! With her usual scientific precision and insatiable curiosity, Leslie Kean is our Orpheus, descending into the Netherworld to grapple with the most ancient of mysteries and return with inspiring evidence—death shall have no dominion.”

—Ralph Blumenthal, investigative reporter, author of Miracle at Sing Sing

“With a keen eye and a no-nonsense approach, investigative journalist Leslie Kean explores what the actual data tells us about the question of survival past death. Examining the material with penetrating depth and insight, she takes us on an engaging, personal, and transformative journey that challenges the skeptic and informs us all.”

—Harold E. Puthoff, Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin

“What a wonderful-and clarifying-opportunity to have someone with the reportorial skills and integrity of Leslie Kean explore the trouble-fraught subject of life after death. A quiet revolution is brewing today in the intellectual treatment of paranormal topics; Kean and this book are at the center of it.”

—Mitch Horowitz, author of Occult America and One Simple Idea

“At last, a serious and thoughtful book about this controversial subject. Skeptics and true believers will find a treasure trove of insightful and eye opening information. This book is bound to set the gold standard for UFO research.”

— Michio Kaku, Ph.D., Author of Physics of the Impossible and The Future of the Mind

“Like me, Leslie Kean is an agnostic on the issue of UFOs. Her book is a fine piece of journalism – not about beliefs, but about facts. Kean presents the most accurate, most credible reports on UFO’s you will ever find. She has fought long and hard to discover the facts and let the chips fall where they may. She may not have the final smoking gun, but I smell the gunpowder.”

— Miles O’Brien, science correspondent for the PBS NewsHour and a producer and director for NOVA

“I was astonished by the care and precision of Leslie Kean’s research in this terrific book. Her analysis is carefully reasoned and to the point; her craftsmanship in organization and writing are superb.”

— Rudy Schild, Ph.D., Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
