I was intrigued by this book, I couldn't put it down. I feel even more confident that there is a hereafter...although disappointing to think that I have to come back many times before I work out my issues here on earth. This book is based on a true story. Would highly recommend it to those of you who believe in or curious about reincarnation.
I have to say that this is a book which impacted me greatly and changed the way I look at life and death. I was completely engrossed in every page and fascinated by the experiences written about and experienced by Dr. Weiss. Knowing that he is left-brained, skeptical and operating from a scientific background brought even greater value to the content of the book since he struggled for so long to write it and to jeopardise his standing with his medical colleagues. I have lost many people in my life and find this book to be reassuring and fascinating in knowing that we will indeed meet again and that " what goes around comes around". Last weekend I took a workshop with Dr Weiss and found him to walk his talk completely. I found him to be genuine, caring, brilliant and intuitive which validated his message even more.
I had seen Dr. Weiss on Oprah and decided to order the book! I could NOT put this book down! This book gives an amazing glimpse into the "meaning" life is supposed to have! If you are at all interested in Past Lives, etc. this book is a MUST HAVE!!! The value was great for the price at Overstock!!! Thanks!
This is a must read book for everyone. I have purchased this book for all the members of my family a number of Christmases ago. Personally -- iI think this book helps you to better understand life and the afterlife so that you will have comfort when your loved ones pass -- and less fear when it comes to your own passing. Interesting and enlightening -- as with all of Brian Weiss' books. :-)

A "you are there" look at past lives that is very compelling. The only problem is that the author not only is arrogant, but also makes a point of saying, several times, that his patient (the woman he regresses throughout the book) is not very bright. We don't need to know how bright she is or isn't, and the comments about her intelligence are unkind. However, the doctor's attitude isn't enough to minimize the impact and importance of the book.
Although it said it's based on a true story, I found that some of the details in the book are quite ridiculous. I am not opposing past life regression therapy in any way, I just don't believe it. It's a story about a lady who goes under Dr. Brian Weiss' therapy, and she could go back to her past lives. Not only that, she could experience her past lives under hypnosis.
