    One thought on “Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife”

    1. I was really excited when I learned that Raymond Moody had published a new book. I had very much enjoyed "Life After Life" where he was one of the first doctors to interview and record the stories of individuals who had near death experiences (NDEs). He is known as the "father" of NDEs. I had studied his work and the work of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and others during college and found it fascinating.His interviews and stories of near death experiences (NDEs) parallels what I have heard through the [...]

    2. I am a Near Death Experiencer. I first read Raymond Moody's book 'Life After Life' back in the 1980's, long before I had my NDE.Back in the 1960's, when I was in my twenties, I had a family member who told me I needed to be put into the state mental hospital, a real snake-pit, because I was having what I knew were psychic experiences. That type of reaction was, and is, a serous danger for Near Death Experiencers, for psychics and for visionaries, then and now.When I had my NDE in 1998, I went th [...]

    3. This autobiography is fascinating in that it explains, in this own words, how a doctor turned into a researcher of the near death experience. Much of the story is simply human interest and does not delve into the somewhat paranormal nature of his work until about the middle of the text. I found his writing very readable and his personal reflections to be honest and often self-effacing. The title is a bit misleading because the book is about his own personal discovery of the NDE and less about ND [...]

    4. Makes complete sense!Loved it! I'm not sure why the author is almost reluctant to declare reincarnation specially with so many documented cases of NDE and SDE and his experiments on the Oracle of the dead. Maybe the Universe wants him to keep his research going. I'm okay with that. If NDEs interest you, then this is a must read. This is his autobiography that also helps us see many aspects of his research in more detail. I was introduced to the term SDE for the first time here, even though I'd h [...]

    5. I thought it was a fabulous read until the end. I enjoyed a clinical explanation of near death experiences. when he started getting into past lives and looking into mirrors, he lost me. I could appreciate looking at certain seemingly paranormal activities from a scientific point of view but past life regression and apparitions was a little bit much.

    6. I really like this book. Informative, entertaining, and did not lose my interest. The book is a bit self-indulgent, but it warns in the beginning that this is the case. However, I can overlook this if I consider the great read I got out of this book. It does seem like it is unfinished, so I hope there is a continuation of this book with a subsequent edition.

    7. Crappy - I mean that in the best possible way. He is SO naracassistic and can't get over himself. I mean, I know its his story, but he keeps going on about how special he is, about how smart he is, about how awesome he is. Gah. Couldn't actually get into it.

    8. The first half of the book (covering his previous work already known to me) is intriguing -- the last half covering info new to me was mind blowing!

    9. Very much worth reading, all the way through.I found it satisfying and helpful that this author's thoughts parallel my own, for the most part, in this area of human thought and endeavour. I also find myself, through no fault of the author whatsoever, just slightly disappointed, in that this author has spent a lifetime researching this phenomena and has discovered strong hints of life after life, but no absolute confirming evidence. So, what hope have I to discover anything beyond what he has inv [...]

    10. Self involved like no other .The Moody rang familiar his name from studies in past shown this name of great importance in his books in librarys, book stores and magazine articles. One rea had the notion that this Drson why he seems so familaiar to me in the beginning was that this Dr. has a trait that my highly intelligent cousin has who also happens to be a Dr. ,they both share Perfect Recall. The mind as a camera taking everything learned and not forgetting.Unforetuanate his details of himself [...]

    11. BRILLIANT AGAINI have always loved "Life after Life. One of the best books ever written. Dr. Moody's done it again, he's an excellent writer. Love his heart. Will tell everyone to read.

    12. Really enjoyed this book and have a lot of respect for Raymond Moody. Thank you for a lifetime of contributions!Michael Jones, Spiritual Teacher and Author of "The Seven Victories of the Divine Child".

    13. A Fabulously Read.As a introductory review of Dr. Moody this book, Paranormal, is a master work. There is no question in my mind that the vast majority of those who read this book will want to read additional books written by Dr. Moody.

    14. Totally spellbinding bookA good friend recommended this book to me and it has had me enthralled for several days. A fascinating subject.

    15. A very courageous biography. It opens up a new world of inquiry into our perception of Life and Death. Raymond Moody had the courage to challenge society's accepted views on this subject.

    16. This is really a personal account of one man's fascination with what happens after we die. The author has several books that examine the possibilities and each one will make readers think and wonder.

    17. Dr Raymond Moody is the writer of the seminal work, “Life after Life,” the first book to document the phenomena that is the near death experience. Moody really is the father of the near death experience, and he summarizes his many accomplishments on page 124 of his autobiography, 'Paranormal: My life in Pursuit of the Afterlife,' stating: ". . . by the age of thirty-two I had acquired two doctorial degrees, taught philosophy for three years, written one of the all-time bestselling books and [...]

    18. Autobiography always leaves me wondering, what did the other people in his life have to say about him? Moody describes the path of his professional life moving from a young man interested in the seminal questions of philosopy, to exploring Near Death Experiences, to fashioning a room in his home with a mirror so patients could try to contact the dead, and ends with his interest in the experiences that people have while watching a loved one die called Shared Death Experiences. Moody is a medical [...]

    19. I was excited when I checked this book out because I thought it was a study on near-death experiences. It is, but it's also an autobiography, which I was not expecting. At first it rubbed me the wrong way because I wasn't looking forward to reading about somebody's life. But then as I kept reading on I couldn't put the book down. He talks about his first glimpse of death, and how it shaped his career from that point on. He starts with near death experiences in college, then eventually moving ont [...]

    20. Dr. Raymond Moody is the world’s leading expert on near-death experiences and an authority on the afterlife, and his life is full of peculiar experiences from a very early age: the resurrection of deceased pets, a surgeon for a father who freely spoke of bringing people “back from the dead”, to Dr. Moody’s own near-death experience (by way of attempted suicide). Beyond the fact that the subject of his research is outstandingly fascinating, I find whatever it is that makes such a man tick [...]

    21. Raymond Moody Jr. is a fascinating guy actually. I really wish that I could visit his psychomanteum for a visit with my loved ones, not that I haven't already had one. This particular subject fascinated me to no end! Although I did wonder at their visit to Kanalaki. I mean Socrates, really? I kept waiting for the old guy to tell them that he was totally kidding about the name. If you're wondering what on earth I'm talking about you're going to have to read this awesome little book obviously! I c [...]

    22. I was fascinated by this book. I started reading it in a noisy train compartment and quickly became so engrossed that I was no longer aware of the racket going on around me. I liked Raymond Moody's honesty about his life and his experiences, and also enjoyed reading about his work. For me, the combination of personal autobiography and summary of his investigations into near-death experiences (and other branches of the field) fits together nicely, and the book has made me want to read some of his [...]

    23. I think that the people who are disappointed about this book are those who stated that it us about Moody's life. That fact is written right into the title. He has written several other titles on his research if you are interested in that. I found his life fascinating. His whole life lead him to do what he does. I thought it was honest and to the point. He doesn't seem to be sensationalist or a narcissist to me at all.

    24. Well, first off wasn't really what I was looking for when I checked it out originally, I was looking more towards ghost experiences, because reading about that kind of thing interest me for whatever reason. Yet, I actually quite enjoyed it, kind of made me question what will happen when I die, and made me wonder if I, myself could come in contact with my deceased relatives. But, I actually enjoyed this book, I might read his other one Life After Life.

    25. Raymond Moody is a gentle soul, and his autobiography is engaging and well written. I admire his kindly, logical and rational approach to death and the dying process. However, as far as paranormal or occult goings-on he seems to be re-inventing the wheel -- or perhaps his is just the current answer to the Age-Old Question.

    26. The father of the "near death" movement, this book goes one step farther to examine the living using gazing or the ancient method of scrying to contact the dead. Interspersed with Moody medical issues and personal problems, this book is easy to read and brings up some interesting phenomena to be investigated further.

    27. I have been reading about Moody's NDE research for many years. This is his own personal story.d about his recent research into "shared death experiences" - I found that very interesting, but still had to wade through his bio. I do not like how he refers to the departed as "ghosts"e on, RM. You can do better than that.

    28. Pretty superficial summary of the stated author's life's work. Seems to be ghost-written, so the author's voice is not as authentic as it could have been. Would have been better he he either made it an autobiography or a summary of his research, but the combo felt that it was skimpy on each level.

    29. I thought this book was very interesting—fascinating at times. I liked the spiritual stuff, and all the medical drama.At times, the book got a little too New Age for me. Still, I like the idea of there being an afterlife, and found comfort in reading about someone who is convinced that it exists.
