"flipside: a tourist's guide on how to navigate the afterlife"

What happens after we die? Author and award winning filmmaker Richard Martini explores startling new evidence for life after death, via the "life between lives," where we reportedly return to find our loved ones, soul mates and spiritual teachers. Based on the evidence of thousands of people who claim that under deep hypnosis, they saw and experienced the same basic things about the Afterlife, the book interviews hypnotherapists around the world trained in the method pioneered by Dr. Michael Newton, as well as examining actual between life sessions. The author agrees to go on the same journey himself, with startling and candid results, learning we are fully conscious between our various incarnations, and return to connect with loved ones and spiritual soul mates, and together choose how and when and with whom we'll reincarnate. The author examines how "Karmic law" is trumped by "Free will," with souls choosing difficult lives in order to learn from their spiritually; no matter how difficult, strange or complex a life choice appears to be, it was made in advance, consciously, with the help of loved ones, soul mates and wise elders. Extensively researched, breathtaking in scope, "Flipside" takes the reader into new territory, boldly going where no author has gone before to tie up the various disciplines of past life regression. near death experiences, and between life exploration. In the words of author Gary Schwartz, Phd, once you've read "Flipside" "you'll never see the world in the same way again." Praise for “FlipSide” "Richard has written a terrific book. Insightful, funny, provocative and deep; I highly recommend it!" Robert Thurman ("Why the Dalai Lama Matters") “Inspiring, well written and entertaining. The kind of book where once you have read it, you will no longer be able to see the world in the same way again.” Gary E. Schwartz (“The Sacred Promise”) "Everyone should have a Richard Martini in their life." Charles Grodin ("If I Only Knew Then... What I Learned From Mistakes")

It's been #1 at Amazon twice (kindle in all its genres, once in 2011, and then in 2012, after my appearances on the popular radio show "Coast to Coast.")  The first of three books, "Flipside" covers the work of hypnotherapist Michael Newton who had 7000 clients over 30 years say pretty much the same things about what happens to the soul after we die. Newton was a skeptic, but once people said consistent things about the afterlife, he became a believer (his books "Journey of Souls" etc) are at the top of their genre in all categories.  I began the project as a documentary, and then realized it made more sense as a book.  So the book follows my journey into this research, and combines actual transcripts - interviews with Michael Newton and other therapists, who have all had the same results, followed by transcripts of "between life" sessions where people under deep hypnosis (myself included) recount not only previous lifetimes (details which are verified in the footnotes) but also a between lives realm where people claim that we plan our next lifetimes.  The book travels to Tibet, India to gather information.  So the translator should be familiar with complex religious concepts if possible, and terms like hypnotherapy, near death experiences, consciousness studies and even quantum possibilites of science and psychology (in the second and third book where I interview scientists about near death experiences.)  I'm posting this because I've had numerous requests worldwide from people who would like to be able to read it in their native language.  Thanks for the consideration.

Sample text:

I consider myself a skeptic; I've always been wary of the "accepted norms." Film director Phillip Noyce, recently said of me “Richard has a penchant for looking into mysteries that defy resolution.” I'm Irish-Italian, raised Catholic, journeyed into the heart of Buddhism through India and Tibet and consider myself appreciative of all religious backgrounds. I’m a journalist, have written or directed feature films and documentaries. Inevitably it’s pointed out I have no expertise in any particular field other than being open to an interesting story. If you’re interested in what experts have to say on this controversial subject, I humbly recommend reading someone else. That being said, I was thrilled when Gary E. Schwartz, who has PhDs from Harvard and Yale offered to write the foreword to Flipside. “Self science,” he writes, “is where core discoveries are made.” I may not be a scientist, but I know one who is. It was the death and visitation from my closest friend that prompted my journey into the afterlife. She appeared after her death to guide me to the location where she now resides. How could that be? Either I imagined it or she actually had taken me to her location in “another galaxy.” The event started this journey into the afterlife, if only to see if I could find her again, on my own. I began with a documentary about reincarnation, planning to cover both sides of the issue - the science of doubt and the religion of belief. I investigated past life regression through the work of Dr. Brian Weiss, Ian Stevenson of the UVA, and Carol Bowman. Along the path, I discovered Dr. Michael Newton, a hypnotherapist who’d done 7000 sessions with clients under “deep hypnosis;” those sessions revealed not only previous lives, but a place between lives where everyone learns how and why we return for another lifetime on Earth; they consistently report life after death.
