Afterlife Knowledge Guidebook

133.9013 M393A:
 
The author’s stated purpose for writing this book was to educate readers with regard to effective methods of exploring the “afterlife”.  The premise being that, by refocusing our attention on non-material realities, we enable ourselves to perceive and interact with the “ghosts”or “souls” or “spirits” of those who have died--and, that by acquiring, in this manner, first-hand experience of the afterlife, our grief over the loss of loved ones and our fear of our own death is dispelled.
 
This may all be; I have not tested it in any substantive way.
 
What strikes me about the book is the clear, accurate description of what happens, both psychologically and physiologically, when one is hypnotized. Anyone who has ever been hypnotized or engaged in any type of self-hypnosis will recognize the “scripts”or “exercises” which form the bulk of the book as hypnosis induction routines.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies


The full title of this book is: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance - Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!. And, this is one book you can judge by its cover.
 
Not one for the die-hard fans of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, but many an English major will savor the addition of Seth Grahame-Smith's zombie-focused storyline to the original Jane Austen prose. This wonderful pop-culture mashup is an hilariously irreverent, escapist parody.
