Dr. Brian Weiss is a highly respected psychiatrist from the mainstream of the medical establishment. Catherine is one of his most difficult cases, a 27-year-old woman racked by phobias and anxieties. In the course of Catherine's treatment, Dr. Weiss makes a startling discovery. Under hypnosis, she recollects, in vivid detail, events from past lives ranging from the prehistoric times and ancient Egypt to the 20th century and the fires of World War II. Encouraging Catherine to relive her most painful experiences, even her moments of death, Dr. Weiss steers her toward recovery, while his own life is dramatically changed forever.

In Many Lives, Many Masters, Dr. Weiss tells the true story of Catherine, her many existences, her remarkable therapy sessions, and the vision she revealed of the human mind and soul.

'Fiction pretending to be science?'
Reviewer JonDanzig
 September 22, 2012
Dr Brian Weiss is a psychiatrist and self-proclaimed ‘scientist’ whose best-selling book, “Many Lives, Many Masters”, has apparently “scientifically proved” reincarnation by recounting the hypnotic regression to past lives by one of his patients. His book has sold over 1.5 million copies with rave reviewers mostly giving ratings of 4 or 5 stars out of 5.

I give the book zero stars. I believe it’s fiction, pretending to be a work of scientific discovery. The book gives doctors, and science, a bad name, and Dr Weiss was already censured by the medical profession when his book was first published. The fact that so many readers believe that his book provides “evidence” for reincarnation shows that modern universal education has in many ways failed to properly explain the principles and discipline of science.

Of course, reincarnation is a comforting thought for many people, especially those who have lost loved ones. ‘Faith’ is the belief in something that cannot be proved, and I respect those of ‘faith’. However, Dr Weiss’s book purports to provide scientific evidence, and if he had really managed to do that, then we would not need faith.

I’ve now written my in-depth review of this 'work of fiction'. I’ll let Dr Weiss sue me in the next life. :) Here’s the link for my review on ‘Good Reads’:


Excellent! Lifechanging!

This book changed forever how I look at my life and how I view death. Death does not scare me anymore. This book also gave me a lot more compassion for others and the sense that we are being guided through life. Life is a school that we are all enrolled in and if we don't "get it" this time, we have lots of other chances in upcoming lives. We will see our loved ones again in other lives. It also helped me make sense of birth defects, uncanny injuries, and of senseless actions of others.
