To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really wanted to like this book. And I enjoyed Mary's writing style and the book wasn't too bad. It just didn't hit the mark for me - the only chapter I found particularly interesting was the discussion of when the soul enters or leaves the body and how the discussion has been influenced by and influences religion and medical practice.
The rest was mainly descriptions of interviews with others about their experiences (eg: re-incarnated children and their families) along with some investigation into areas such as spiritualists.
It wasn't full of interesting anecdotes / historical facts or anything that was more in depth than you might get in the Mail on Sunday.
I finished the book though so it worth the effort but it promised so much more!
