afterlife-reading-listSo this is what I consider the best afterlife reading list. People who know even a little about me know that I am a believer in the afterlife, but not in a traditional sense. We all want to know, right? But we don’t want to die to find out. So we’re not dying to know and we won’t know for sure until we die.

Or almost die.

Still…there’s plenty of scientific evidence and even more anecdotal evidence. So from time to time I’m asked, ” what should I read if I want to get up to speed on the latest afterlife evidence,?”

This list contains some of my favorites. It isn’t definitive, but it certainly gives a really good overview of what’s being done by the major figures in afterlife studies. All of the titles are live links.

The Afterlife Experiments: Breakthrough Scientific Evidence of Life After Death by Gary Schwartz, PhD

The G.O.D Experiments: How Science is Discovering God in Everything, Including Us also by Gary Schwartz, PhD

Gary’s a big deal. His studies are scientifically rigorous and his results are mind-blowing. I’ve seen him many times at conferences and symposia and let me tell you, he goes over his scientific method in detail in those loooong presentations. The books aren’t quite so dense! Anything he’s written is worth reading, these are just two of them.

Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander MD

I really believe certain people are called, usually doctors, because they have that medical credibility going for them. There are at least two docs who had near-death experiences and wrote about them.  Here’s one. Yes, there have been attacks on Dr. Alexander’s credibility. However, his story is worth reading.

The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming our Fear of Death by Julia Assante, PhD

I’ve seen Julia a few times, too. This is a pretty comprehensive book and one of my favorites.

The Afterlife Unveiled: What the Dead are Telling Us About Their World by Stafford Betty, PhD

Dr. Betty is a riveting speaker and his book is super-intriguing.

Wolf’s Message by Suzanne Giesemann

It’s riveting. But anything Suzanne writes is riveting because she has so much credibility. She is a former Navy Commander and aide to the Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who is now a medium. Yes, you read that right. I’ve seen her a few times and I love her! Anything she writes is worth reading.

A Lawyer Presents the Case for the Afterlife by Victor Zammit.  

I’ve met Victor and he and his wife, Wendy, are amazing. The link takes you to a free PDF of his book. Free because he believes that strongly and wants to get the message out.

I’m Not Dead, I’m Different by Hollister Rand


Hollister has read for me many times. This is probably the easiest to read and best written of any of the books–and it’s not just about kids, actually. Even though that’s how she titles it. It’s a tremendously good overview of the afterlife and what souls are all about.

I suggest you look at the book reviews online and sample pages to see what appeals to you most. They’re all excellent; what you might like is an individual thing.

I just read this post about the best afterlife reading list again as I prepare to schedule it and I realize just how deep my own study of this subject has been and how many of these people I have seen and heard speak. And of course, I’ve read all of the books. If you have any curiosity at all, I hope you’ll pick one or two up. Be prepared to, well, just be prepared!
