This provocative study explores what happens to those who commit suicide. Drawing on communications from the spirits of more than 100 'successful' suicides, it offers an intriguing look at what the dead themselves say about suicide, its repercussions, and their experiences in the afterlife. Bringing together the channeled messages of three types of suicide—traditional suicide, assisted suicide, and the suicide mass murder adopted by terrorists—the book covers a wide range of topics, including why people commit suicide, what it is like to cross over, adjustment problems, what suicides would say to those left behind, and what they would tell others thinking of taking their own lives. Additionally, the book conveys powerful messages from suicide bombers, warning potential terrorists of the serious karmic consequences that await them. For anyone contemplating suicide or euthanasia, the book offers profound, sometimes unsettling, insight into the ramifications of these acts.

"Klimo and Heath have written one of the most provocative and challenging books on suicide to appear in recent years. Anyone who has been touched by suicide, or anyone who has contemplated survival of bodily death—and who hasn't?—will benefit from this highly original book."
-Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

"In this meticulously documented, fascinating book, Heath and Klimo investigate the tragic nature of suicide and break new ground in exploring one of the most emotional and meaningful issues of our time."
- Dean Radin, Ph.D., author of Entangled Minds and Conscious Universe, and senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Studies

"Exceptional! There is no other book anywhere that approaches the subject of suicide from 360 degrees as does this book, nor as thoroughly, nor with such a high standard of integrity—and in readable, easy-to-understand fashion."
- P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D., author of seven books on near-death studies, as well as Beyond the Indigo Children: The New Children and the Coming of the Fifth World
