This exciting account presents provocative evidence that could upset everything that science has ever taught. Daring to risk his worldwide academic reputation, Dr. Gary E. Schwartz, along with his research partner Dr. Linda Russek, asked some of the most prominent mediums in America-to become part of a series of extraordinary experiments to prove, or disprove, the existence of an afterlife. This riveting narrative, with its electrifying transcripts, puts the reader on the scene of a breakthrough scientific achievement: contact with the beyond under controlled laboratory conditions.
In stringently monitored experiments, leading mediums attempted to contact dead friends and relatives of "sitters" who were masked from view and never spoke, depriving the mediums of any cues.
The messages that came through stunned sitters and researchers alike. There are some extraordinary and uncanny revelations, and most amazingof all, Dr. Schwartz was forced by the overwhelming positive data to abandon his skepticism, reaching some startling conclusions.
