"Surviving Death is a thoughtful and at times startling exploration of the afterlife. As a skeptical journalist, Leslie Kean is uniquely equipped to examine and evaluate the evidence for survival of consciousness. After encountering a rash of impossible facts and startling personal experiences, her conclusion is unequivocal: We are woefully ignorant of what happens after death, but it is very likely that something interestinghappens rather than nothing. A refreshingly careful and candid review." —Dean Radin, PhD, author of Supernormal and The Conscious Universe
"In addressing the most important question facing all of us, Kean has synthesized data from both a wide variety of credible sources and from her own exploration of seemingly unexplainable personal observations. After decades of research into this topic, I believe the preponderance of the evidence indicates that we survive death. But far more important is that I urge everyone to read Surviving Death, engage in their own quest, and decide for themselves." —John B. Alexander, PhD, Colonel USA Ret., author of Future War and UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities
"What a wonderful-and clarifying-opportunity to have someone with the reportorial skills and integrity of Leslie Kean explore the trouble-fraught subject of life after death. A quiet revolution is brewing today in the intellectual treatment of paranormal topics; Kean and this book are at the center of it." —Mitch Horowitz, PEN Award-winning author of Occult America and One Simple Idea
