New Book: "Self Doesn't Die"

#8
View attachment 819 Great book, I just got it. Highly recommend it, lots of verified NDE's, SDE's, SNDE's, etc. Fascinating....
Enrique, I noticed that your name is mentioned in the "Acknowledgements" section of the book, along many other names that are well-known for people here... So, I suppose you somehow assisted the authors and helped to complete the book. Can you tell us more about your participation in this project?

Lol! No, i haven't contributed in any way that I know of, it's just that Titus and Rudolf are two sweetest human beings on the face of the Earth, and they credit me although I haven't done anything. I didn't even know they had credited me

You have given us lots of encouragement, Enrique, which made you worth mentioning...:)
Yes, and now your book is encouragement for Enrique, and many others who ispired it - as well as for everyone who is reading it... except for extreme skeptics who will be enraged rather than encouraged.

So, while for now the book have only well-deserved 5-star reviews on Amazon, we can predict that skeptics will soon try to downgrade its perfect rating by posting angry 1-star reviews. In fact, I'm a bit surprised that these people have been inactive as yet. Probably they (secretly) comprehend that they have nothing valid to say against?

The reviews certainly set expectations high.
Some of the reviews present it as a scientific work. Is that how you would characterize it Smithy?

I'm inclined to pick it up once it is out on ebook.

Just 3 stars on Amazon UK.
From a single review, which claimed that the "authors doesn't (sic) challenge their own ideas" and that it is "biased". I'm not sure exactly how they reach that conclusion, since a good part of the book is devoted to discussing opposing arguments. This is is not a Dawkins evangelical piece, which goes out of its way to discard any argument with a hand wave.

These types of book often draw reviews from people who either haven't read them or have gone at them with a spanner.

True. But the user in question, "MB" (Max, is that you?), does appear to have read several books on NDEs, apparitions and reincarnation: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/pdp/profile/AXNOKA55AO4QU/ref=cm_cr_arp_mb_pdp?ie=UTF8

In his review, he states that it is "ok if you just want to confirm your point of view", which makes me think that he is projecting onto the authors his own disagreement with their POV and conclusions.

They discuss limitations and potential weaknesses of their research? That's important to do so good to hear. Apparently Long didn't do it in his book so I'm glad that Smithy appears to have done so.

Scientific? It depends... "Scholarly" is a good characterization in any case.
Will get back to this later: we have to go out.

BTW: the Kindle version will be out very soon!
