What did you love best about Flipside?
I have read Michael Newton's books (listened to them actually) and have researched related areas my entire life, after having lost a sister in a childhood car accident dreamed about beforehand. This work by Richard Martini was the clincher for me to seek out a trained life between lives hypnotherapist. As a trained scientist, I tend to look carefully at independent confirmation of important but novel findings, and Richard has sought that out like a good documentarian or journalist also must. The fact that Richard already has an established & successful public career was key, as he likely only stands to loose some credibility by publishing these findings in a culture generally not inclined to take such subjects seriously. This area likely leads to one healing from poor choices/experiences, and taking on more personal responsibility. While I have not quite finished listening to his book (which I am very glad he narrated himself, the authenticity comes through even more in his personal recounting) I feel compelled to write this so that others who are on the fence about choosing this DO SO. Not only that, this work itself is excellent, engaging, and masterfully woven together. I feel sorry for people who have not had personal experiences that help them move beyond knee jerk cynical dismissal of such profound subject matter--though I imagine I could have been like that in previous lifetimes myself ;-)
Who was your favorite character and why?
The narrator. And no, I did not find this to be a narcissistic work, as a certain review at amazon.com expressed. On the contrary, I found it to be about as far from that as one can get and still express a splendid personality.
Which scene was your favorite?
The entire work. As an adjunct college professor teaching math and sustainability, I wish more folks would tune into this avenue of personal development, as I suspect it would help them in many other areas of their lives...
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It did make me laugh and cry, as well as feel other rich emotions, because it rang true to me on subject matter that counts most.
Any additional comments?
I only hope that more people in our world come across & explore this work, while we still have a decent shot at healing our modern psychoses--ones that are presently at the root of much inflicted suffering on ourselves and other living beings on this particular sphere. However, this work has also given me some consolation about what from a purely physical perspective can lead many (who are paying attention) to depression about what is going on. This work has lifted my spirits, once again, and filled me with an inner sense of luminosity that is not easily dimmed by our human failings.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book to friends. The stories are interesting and give a person hope for what awaits all of us.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could listen to this book all in one sitting. Richard Martini is an excellent story teller. Very natural style that I enjoy. Listening to his book is like sitting with a good friend and listening to him tell you stories. Well done.
Any additional comments?
My only complaint concerning this book is the production of it. The "popping of the P's", the thumping of the microphone, the change in sound from one chapter to another. For instance I was listening to a later chapter yesterday on the way home from NC. One chapter sounded like it was recorded in a large cave. I really like Mr. Martini's natural style of delivery but the noise from popping P's to hitting the mic and making a thumping noise is distracting.

The first chapter has white noise in the background, then on the second it has an echo as well. Seems to be getting worse.
If you are interested in the afterlife this is definitely worth a READ, but not a listen. The author (God bless him) talked far too fast and kept making errors which spoiled the listening experience.There was a lot of information to take in which was impossible since he was reading at the speed of light. I would recommend you buy this book in a readable format
