What Should We Expect? What Should We Expect? By David Fontana. He explores the whole area of human consciousness and considers the question: if the body and the brain perish at death, what remains to survive?

ურადღებით გაეცანით ნივთის აღწერას, რათა მიიღოთ ინფორმაცია დაზიანებების შესახებ. Life Beyond Death What Should We Expect by Fontana David. ივთი დაემატა სურვილების სიაში.

Most people in the world believe in some form of life after death, but what exactly is the nature of the afterlife? David Fontana examines all the extensive evidential material that has been accumulated over time—including communication through mediums and accounts from those who had near-death and out-of-body experiences—and compares them to descriptions found in such mystical texts as The Tibetan Book of the Dead and The Egyptian Book of the Dead. He explores the whole area of human consciousness and considers the question: if the body and the brain perish at death, what remains to survive? From the various ideas of paradise to the very meaning of existence, this is a journey through infinite possibilities.

I love Mercedes
One of my favorite authors on life in the spirit world. This British professor is well respected in England for his research and the clarity of his writing. His explanation of the four planes of form and the three formless planes existing in the Spirit World is the best I have read in any book dealing with this subject. He succinctly distinguished the difference among each plane based on his research. The extensive reference list of books used in the books is impressive. It is a wise investment for the reader who wants to understand the world in which he or she will live for eternity.

I so want to believe in life after death after my true love died unexpectedly. This book was very convincing, until I got to the parts about last-century physical spiritualists and ectoplasm. That's when the book's credibility fell apart. Leave the ectoplasm for Ghostbusters. At that point of the book, I felt seriously slimed.

He was very wordy and would ramble on. I kept loosing my focus and interest due to this. It may be the British way, maybe....not sure, but
I did not care for his overly intellectual wordiness.

It can be said of all of Fontana’s books that he maintains a high level of scrupulous analysis. He maintains a high level of objectivity and always puts counter arguments to each topic – which he then treats with the same objectivity.

Pseudo-sceptics just love anything to do with the apparent survival of consciousness after physical death; they feel free to throw up ‘explanations’ – anything will do, no matter how improbable or how unprovable. This often works quite well and succeeds in intimidating some writers – but not someone with the formidable intellect of Fontana.

For anyone who wants objectivity and substantiation, this is an excellent book.

With its' gentle blue colouring on the front cover, the first impression on sight is one of comfort and a gentle approach to this sometimes touchy subject of death, and what we can expect from the experience.

The author, David Fontana, has many other titles (more than 40) including "Psychology, Religion and Spirituality", "Learn to Meditate" and "The New Secret Language of Dreams'. He is a Professor of Psychology, Past President of the Society of Psychical Research, and a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and has been investigating the evidence for survival of death for more than forty years.

I hadn't thought much about what happens after death as it isn't a huge concern to me: after reading this book I felt a bit more curious and thoughtful about the subject. The various chapters got me more and more interested in looking at what type of experiences I could expect from this once in a (or this) lifetime experience! The chapter titles are:

1. The Mystery of the Afterlife
2. Near Death and Actual Death
3. What Happens Next?
4. Sudden Death and States of Mind
5. Earthbound Spirits
6. The First Plane and Hades Conditions
7. The Plane of Illusion (Summerland)
8. The Formless Realms

There is also a section for references and a good index (both are handy if you want to look into a particular topic in more detail, or want to find something quickly).

Fontana is a relaxed and experienced writer. I found his writing style easy to read and understand, although due to the nature of the topic, some of the references were a bit `untechnical'. By this I mean that because it is impossible to produce hard evidence of life after death, we can all only go by what people have experienced death and returned, and by psychics: and I have to say that the author has done a great job in pulling together the common threads in the experiences of those who have temporarily experienced death.

This book would suit anyone who is curious about what happens to us when we die... or for those who are just curious in general! "Life Beyond Death" may also be of comfort to those of you who have experienced death and would like to compare your own experiences with those of others. I personally found this book to be comforting in terms of seeing death in more positive terms (even though I was a bit blasé about it before).

This book is just so much better than most of the 'afterlife' books I've been reading throughout my research. David Fontana looks into almost every type of evidence provided for life after death in a succinct and informative way, speaking objectively as a man of science but also with great respect for the spiritual and paranormal world. If anything, I am most impressed that David Fontana did connect some of the 'universal' concepts of heaven present in almost all world religions with the communications recieved from the dead via mediums and other sources. In doing so, he shows thoroughness as a researcher in trying to gather as much evidence as possible while remaining poignant and precise. This is one of the first books that I've read that really delves into the nature of heaven (and hell) itself and what we should all expect, and not just the nature of death and the over-emphasized phenomenon of NDEs and what they 'should' mean to the scientific community.

A really enjoyable, beautiful read.

Well written, almost clinical in nature with educational information regarding religion, after-life, etc. Seems unbiased and provides references from vast array of sources, recent and from the past. Very thought-provoking and insightful.
