Anthony Peake is an author to be appreciated because he deals with big issues but writes in an enjoyable way that doesn’t intimidate the reader. So here he discusses such big names as Friedrich Nietzsche, PD Ouspensky and Walter Benjamin, but he also fills the book with stories and case studies which back up what he is saying. It might not surprise you that this book is a sequel to his classic title Is There Life After Death? and it goes on to expand the range of material compared to that earlier book. He is not trying to overwhelm us with evidence as stories but instead he surveys the material philosophically and in a cool way. These are questions that concern and even obsess many of us and it will be immensely reassuring to almost all that he concludes that the world is genuinely not what it seems to be.
