Many Lives, Many Masters
Why this book?
I grew up thinking that an afterlife was a pretty enough idea, but I was an agnostic who leaned toward skepticism. This book only caught my attention because the author had real-world credentials. Brian Weiss is a psychiatrist, an MD and PhD with degrees from Columbia and Yale, and the former head of psychiatry at Miami’s Mount Sinai, who arrived very reluctantly and unexpectedly to a practice of past life regression. I found his book intelligent and compelling, and there’s one detail that’s simply astounding –– If you’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about! If he’s genuine, and I think he is, his message is kind of irrefutable: that we are essentially souls who live many lifetimes.
