He'd been working on other sections on and off for months, losing then regaining his confidence.

They don't indicate how lively and joyous this book is. I've been reading the Spiritualism books for the last year or so, downloading all the public domain titles I could find.

book by Gordon Phinn. Eternal Life and How to Enjoy It is a real-life tour of what awaits us in the afterlife, as told by a guide Henry, who just happens to be dead. I found Gordon's book to be utterly delightful and have recommended it to a number of friends. An aspect of the descriptions that was compelling to me was the lack of traditional karmic consequences in the afterlife, other than the one's we made for ourselves.

by Gordon Phinn, Henry. Published September 2004 by Hampton Roads Publishing Company. I died in the early 1960s, during that breathing space between the Cuban missile crisis and the Kennedy assassination, those halcyon days of our commonwealth whose charm and promise have come to be commemorated, even by the cynical, as Camelot.

Author Gordon Phinn has been in communication with Henry for many years and brings us the tragicomic tale in his own inimitable style. Hi, I am Gordon Phinn, author of Eternal life And How To Enjoy It. Just a note to clarify the composition of the book

Author Gordon Phinn has been in communication with Henry for many years and brings us the tragicomic tale in his own inimitable style. Just a note to clarify the composition of the book. It was the result of many out of body experiences, had by me, during the winter of 1998/99. Some of these experiences seemed like lucid dreams, and others classic obe’s.

Eternal Life and How to Enjoy It is a real-life tour of what awaits us in the afterlife, as told by a guide Henry, who just happens to be dead. Author Gordon Phinn has been in communication with Henry for many years and brings us the tragicomic tale in his own inimitable style.

Henry, a so-called "boring accountant," relates how--immediately after being killed in a car crash--he is welcomed by the affable Jack, who guides him on his first day dead. We see this new world through Henry's eyes and feel his amazement at every turn. Even better, we witness this stuffy "bean counter" let go of his suffering and guilt and turn into the fun-loving, carefree soul he truly is.

After Henry gets used to the place, he becomes an afterlife guide himself, indulging the newly deceased in any whim or fantasy that will help them to "wake up and realize they're dead." Henry explains that most people have the afterlife experience their cultural and religious belief systems set them up for--including all the heavens, all the hells, and all the purgatories in between. When really, he says, we can view the afterlife as a constant progression towards the reunion with the god consciousness that we put aside to practice the art of being human.

Looking at the cover and reading the title, I was not hopeful. They don't indicate how lively and joyous this book is. It sparkles with humour and makes the topic of "death and the afterlife" a delightful and entertaining subject. I've been reading the Spiritualism books for the last year or so, downloading all the public domain titles I could find. There was something wrong with all those heavy, portentious works. Although they describe an afterlife of happiness and joy, they did it in a rather serious manner.

This book is written as a dialogue. It unfolds like a novel, telling a good story. I compare it to only two other books that treat the afterlife in the same literary manner: Life in the World Unseen (plus it's follow-on title) by Anthony Borgia and The Astral City by Andre Luiz. Both of these are the best books to read if you really want to be immersed in the experience of the afterlife. Books that are more scientific or analytical give you facts, but alas, are often accompanied by preaching and "lessons" to be learned. Here, just like with any good novel, you still get the moral of the story but have a thoroughly entertaining ride while you do.

I love the tongue-in-cheek humour, the quips and the irreverant attitude of "Henry", the newly dead character, as he tours the astral realms. As he says "I couldn't help thinking how a little bit of deceipt and smarminess spiced things up a bit". I read books on the afterlife in order to pick up hints on how best to live life on earth now. I'm so delighted that humour and mischief are just as important over there as they are to me here.

I think this book is destined to be a classic of its genre. I just hope the publishers reprint with a much more illustrative cover, one that gives a taste of all that is inside: hope, peace of mind, joyous anticipation and of course, humour.

And I'm only on page 24 - I was just so keen to write this review!

I found Gordon's book to be utterly delightful and have recommended it to a number of friends.

An aspect of the descriptions that was compelling to me was the lack of traditional karmic consequences in the afterlife, other than the one's we've accepted, or made and continue to believe for ourselves. I felt this to be a deep affirmation of unconditional love as the basis of life in the universe. We are forgiven and the purpose in living is simply to expand ourselves into the fuller complete dimensions of existence regardless of our history. Very liberating!

The story and events unfold fluidly with fascination. A joy to read.

This book seems to have borrowed a lot of its ideas from Anthony Borgia's "Life in the World Unseen," but throws in some amoral sophistry, like nothing is really right or wrong. The trouble with all books of this ilk is that they don't really answer the important questions like: why do humans exist? What is the point of it all? Why are we created so imperfect in the first place that we have to go through countless torturous incaranations to "perfect" oulselves? Instead, these types of books are content to chatter about what may be termed astral gossip--who's doing what silly things with whom on the Astral Plane. Who cares? He introduces so many characters that I felt like I was reading a Tolstoy novel. The end-point, the author implies, is, after progressing through all these planes, to merge with one's higher self, an amorphous blob of bodiless energy that just sits there like a toad waiting to lap up the flies of our incarnation experiences. Phinn compares the higher selves to glowing onions! (which may be apt since onions stink and make you cry). Phinn also seems to have a vested interest in plugging the Monroe Institute for OBE's. If these books are really dictated or inspired by someone in spirit, why don't they prove it by telling us something useful, like the cure for AIDS or a cheap energy source to replace oil. This guide, Henry, seems flipant, frivolous, and deceitful (he likes to dress up as someone else and lie to people--for their "own good" of course.) The whole book seems fictional.

This book is fiction at best. There is not an element of truth in it. It's not worth the penny I paid for it. If you really care about the truth of the afterlife you will want to avoid this account.

I have been fascinated by the esoteric for years and was looking forward to the release of this title.

It is a great account of life in the "afterlife". Of course it takes somewhat of an open mind to understand the concepts and in that I would encourage reading up on this subject prior to or after reading this book but for those who are open to it and curious then this is the book to read.

I also think books like this are invaluable to read even if you are somewhat doubtful or agnostic as to any form of spirituality. Possessing some knowledge of what the afterlife is like will help you significantly in your awareness and recognition when it's your time to go out. :-)

Gordon is a great writer and there is also a lot of humour interspersed throughout the book. This is NOT a typical new-agey peace, love and mungbeans book that discusses concepts like the Galactic Federation etc but just a first hand, sometimes quite raw, account of life in the afterlife.

Definitely worth the purchase.
