As a long-standing member of the Society for Psychical Research and President of the College for Psychic Studies, Paul Beard was an authority on psychical research and in particular the study of life after death. He wrote numerous books on the subject including his trilogy, Survival Of Death, Living On, and Hidden Man, followed by Inner Eye, Listening Ear. During his lifetime study the author followed the evidence wherever it took him; 'sitting' with many mediums he gained their confidence and meticulously recorded what he discovered. The result is a comprehensive account of our most important questions; Why are we here? Do we have a karmic footprint? What happens after we physically die?
As a result of his studies Beard was enthusiastic about his impending death. In 1986, three years before his passing he wrote: "Whatever is learned on earth, or we think has been learned, the path still winds forward, the quest goes on. The horizons extend, not diminish."
"I have been greatly impressed by this book. It deals persuasively and sensibly with a very difficult subject... It is well organized, well written, and perceptive."
~ Brian Inglis, author of Natural and Supernatural.
"Beard has in a truly masterly fashion analysed and provided a sensible, sane, reassuring picture of a psychic universe that is just, compassionate, caring and loving. This book has valuable and deserves to be widely read, even by sceptics like myself."
~ Prof. Archie Roy, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy in the University of Glasgow.
