Alastair (Bruce) Scott-Hill, a Professional Engineer (now retired), graduated as a BE (Elect), Cant. and spent his career in communication technology, particularly in telecommunications and information technology. The main portion of his career was with Telecom New Zealand spanning some 35 years designing national telephone exchanges, and telecommunication networks. He also designed the first Telecom online nationwide supply computer system. Subsequently he then took up a position with Standards New Zealand, where he was responsible for all New Zealand Standards in Telecommunications, Information Technology and Acoustics. He has had a lifetime interest in science.
"Everyone should read this book, which won the New Zealand 2016 Ashton - Wylie Literary award."
"The book should be given widespread publicity so that it somehow gets through the fog of main stream reporting. Modern science is held in such high esteem that a book providing solid science in support of non-physical reality can be an eye opener and a life changer for many. It is an eloquent and erudite bridge between science and spirituality, providing a common ground upon and through which a meaningful dialogue can take place. Plus, the immense amount of findings presented in this book from standard scientific research, presents daunting challenges to even the most materialistic of hard-nosed skeptics."
Dr Dennis Grega, Psychologist researcher and joint CEO/Convenor of the Afterlife.com website and services - the world's largest "afterlife" website.
"Where science generally offers only despair, Scott-Hill offers hope that goes beyond the blind faith of orthodox religion and into providing true afterlife validation and belief for us all."
Michael Tymn, Editor, The Journal for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies. Michael is considered one of the world's foremost living experts on evidential afterlife studies. He has produced six books on the subject over the last 60 years, and more than 1600 articles for newspapers, magazines etc.
"A clearly written, well researched and richly detailed book on the reasons, scientific and experiential, for a belief in the survival of death and reincarnation. Scott-Hill is right to insist on the many ways in which they are in fact supported by post-classical physics. A stimulating read!"
Robert McLuhan, Editor of "Paranormalia," a website which deals with consciousness, spirituality, and psychic research. He is author of three books to date including his latest, "Randi's Prize: What Sceptics Say About the Paranormal, Why They Are Wrong, and Why It Matters."
"As might be expected of such a writer, his presentation is clear, logical and concise: and I found it convincing. I find it illuminating, fascinating, and expect to refer to it, again and again. "
Rev. Michael D S Cocks, a former Anglican Vicar, Christchurch, New Zealand. He has published two books, "the Afterlife Teaching from Stephen the Martyr" and "Into the Wider Dream: Synchronicity in the Witness Box." He is editor of "The Ground of Faith" website."
