This book is the first systematic and comprehensive critical evaluation of reincarnation by a professional philosopher in any language. Several chapters deal with the alleged evidence for reincarnation -- child prodigies, deja vu experiences, hypnotic regressions and spontaneous memories of earlier lives. The book shows how reincarnation is incompatible with many well-established facts such as population increases, the recency of life in the universe, and the transformation of species. It shows that reincarnation is committed to belief in the astral body, which is examined in a particularly amusing chapter. The book is written in a lucid and witty style by an author renowned for his Voltairean sense of fun.

This is an amazing book that I have read only a few months after writing about the understanding I was given from the universal source of knowledge (God) that we do comeback not in physical form but in entity (spiritual) (soul) form. In fact, we choose the very lives we enter. The only thing of our parents are our physical outer selves. We are allowed to come back to experience that which we have not yet experienced in an effort to gain in our understanding and therfore our connection to our Creator. The end result being eternal spiritual maturity with God.
