Death Summary

Death: The Great Mystery of Life by Herbie Brennan

From the burial rites of the earliest humans to the current price of freezing one's dead body, this engaging study confronts the mystery of deathleaving no question or topic unexplored. In "Death," Herbie Brennan dissects the biological processes by which we die, delving into the history of plagues, wars and natural disasters. What were the most prolific killers of our ancestors? How are you most likely to perish? What can you look forward to after that, if anything? Brennan probes these questions and dozens of others in a beguiling manner, turning the most frightening concepts into comforting revelations. He devotes a large portion of the book to "good news"research into the afterlife, the tranquillity of near-death experiences, accounts of radio communication with the deceased (and how to make audio tapes of such phenomena), and out of body experiences. Surveying the world, Brennan reveals the surprising similarities and differences in cultural manifestations of this universal event. The result is a comprehensive account from multiple perspectives that is captivating, mysterious, and wonderfully reassuring about this most feared of human experiences."

About Herbie Brennan

With books achieving international sales at the multi-million copy level, prolific Irish writer Herbie Brennan has charted a personal interest in spirituality, reincarnation, physical research, comparative religion and transpersonal psychology that has culminated in this major examination of the mystery of death. Brennan's intellectual journey began early with a childhood study of Yoga philosophy and expanded into a lifelong fascination for mysticism and the paranormal. In more recent times, an abiding interest in astronomy has led to two children's books on the subject, one specially commissioned for exclusive distribution in UK schools. Over the past few years, his reappraisal of ancient history has stirred lively debate on TV and radio as well as in the press. He broadcasts and lectures regularly throughout the UK and Ireland. He lives in County Carlow, Ireland.
