I almost gave up on this book for the first 20% it seems like a travel journal than the title suggests with detailed descriptions of just about everything and everyone but it did eventually get to the stories that made me buy the book in the first place They were interesting thought provoking and somehow unsatisfactory partly because the original lives were mostly lived in the next village and also that there seemed to be conflicting accounts from witnesses and family members The author's feelings about them throughout seemed pretty much akin to mine The best part of the book IMO was the last section when the author investigates a couple of cases in the US rather than in Lebanon and India where the others were and also relates an incident that occurred when he was a young man which gives him insight into his feelings about the cases he has seen and puts everything into a special perspective

Old Souls Compelling Evidence From Children Who Remember Past Livesby Tom Shroder isbn13 9780684851921A prominent psychiatrist with a no nonsense reputation stumbles across a cure for a patient with an intractable phobia Putting her under hypnosis he asks her to keep going gradually further and further back into her past He then asks her to go all of the way back to the event that gave her the phobia To his shock she goes back to before her birth thousands of years to an alleged former life in ancient Egypt where she remembers experiencing a particularly harsh manner of death Upon awakening she is suddenly free of her phobia after having had that freedom elude her for years during therapy The psychiatrist writes a popular book about that experience and skeptical Washington Post reporter Tom Shroder is sent to write an article about itShroder does find a psychiatrist with a hitherto well deserved reputation for being a down to Earth clinician but he isn't satisfied with the psychiatrist's interpretation of the case Asking around Shroder finds that a number of other prominent psychiatrists have stumbled across this phenomenon using hypnosis in their treatment However these other psychiatrists did not feel the need to believe that they had found evidence for reincarnation It was enough that these experiences whatever they were helped their patients overcome their long held difficultiesShroder then found experts who investigated the reliability or lack thereof of memories retrieved under hypnosis The consensus of those professionals was that under hypnosis the brain will do as it is told even if it means manufacturing a reality to fit the reuestThrough these experts Shroder learned of the existence of Dr Ian Stevenson a distinguished academic and a psychiatrist who had been traveling the globe for almost 30 years documenting cases of young children spontaneously remembering past lives without the aide of hypnosis or anything elseThese cases typically involved young children between the ages of 2 5 years of age who had no exposure whatsoever to the place or people from which they claimed to come from These children would often coax their parents to take them to visit these foreign locations Upon arrival the children would know their way around the strange city recognize people they never met recall shared experiences nobody else knew about with complete strangers and have emotionally charged reunions with these strangers Financial gain the seeking of fame or a fetish for romantic fantasies were not issues in these casesIn these cases Dr Stevenson would typically interview the people involved compare the accounts of various witnesses for consistency verify what he could through public records catalog the details methodically and then move on Thats it No movies of the week no talk show appearances and no best sellers Just cataloging data without making conclusions for nearly 3000 cases over the course of 30 years all over the worldThis lack of sensationalism impressed Shroder enough to seek out the aging Dr Stevenson and accompany him on the last fact finding tour abroad of his career Shroder felt Dr Stevenson's different down to Earth neutral and data centered approach to reincarnation did not deserve to die in an academic obscurity Shoder's goal was to publish a book about it so that at least people would know of its existenceAside from Nu Age style cover art pictured above which is an anathema to what impressed Shroder and what Shroder wanted to show to the world he succeededI'm guessing the spooky cover art was a concession to the publisher who wanted to make sure that at least some copies of the book sold The bulk of the book is a travel log of Shroder's trip to Lebanon and India with Dr Stevenson where he follows up on cases he initially investigated decades ago as well as investigating new casesNot all of the cases are as impressive in corroborated evidence as the summary of the book suggests Rather than discouraging the reader these accounts give the reader a sense of the frustrations Dr Stevenson must have felt over the course of his 30 year career Reaching the people involved in these cases was often an arduous task only to yield information that Dr Stevenson felt wasn't worthy of including in his collectionSome of the cases described in the book were strong and were flat out intriguingShroder did an excellent job of describing the environments he traveled to and the people he interacted with I found his account of the trip to Lebanon particularly interesting I learned a lot about the country that I did not know before including that a sect of Islam exists called the Druse that believes in reincarnation I never would have guessedMore importantly Shroder plays an excellent man on the street narrator of his account of his time with Dr Stevenson He asks the uestions the reader would want to ask he is skeptical the way many readers would want to be skeptical and he feels the hopes that many of the readers would feelHaving gotten a visceral experience of Dr Stevenson's typical cases instead of a stack of Dr Stevenson's dry academic reports Shroder ends the book as he started it As an agnostic about the reality of reincarnationShroder didn't believe that Dr Stevenson's cases could be explained away via normal means However as with the serious academic critics of Dr Stevenson's work Shroder's only choice was to choose either reincarnation or some other out of the ordinary explanation none the plausible Instead Shroder chose not to choose Deciding that some things are just not knownI don't think this book will turn anyone's world upside down It will make the reader stop to take a look into the void of uncertainty if only for a moment This book was well written sober in tone and fascinating
