A first-person account of Jim Tucker's experiences with a number of extraordinary children with memories of past lives, Return to Life focuses mostly on American cases, presenting each family's story and describing his investigation. His goal is to determine what happened-what the child has said, how the parents have reacted, whether the child's statements match the life of a particular deceased person, and whether the child could have learned such information through normal means. Tucker has found cases that provide persuasive evidence that some children do, in fact, possess memories of previous lives. Among others, listeners will meet a boy who describes a previous life on a small island. When Tucker takes him to that island, he finds that some details eerily match the boy's statements and some do not. Another boy points to a photograph from the 1930s and says he used to be one of the men in it. Once the laborious efforts to identify that man are successful, many of the child's numerous memories are found to match the details of his life. Soon after his second birthday, a third boy begins expressing memories of being a World War II pilot who is eventually identified. Thought-provoking and captivating, Return to Life urges its listeners to think about life and death, and reflect about their own consciousness and spirituality. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • An important milestone of an emerging scientific paradigm. Deepak Chopra
  • “In Return to Life, Jim Tucker painstakingly and meticulously documents the recycling of memories from beyond the barrier of physical death. He then rigorously offers a scientific theory to explain how our consciousness transcends space/time and is, hence, eternal. This book is an important milestone of an emerging scientific paradigm that suggests that consciousness conceives, governs, constructs, and becomes the universe or perhaps multiple universes.”

    Deepak Chopra

  • “With Return to Life, Dr. Jim B. Tucker has driven a very large nail in the coffin of materialism. This is an important contribution to the growing body of evidence that consciousness survives the death of the brain and body. The fear of death and annihilation has caused more suffering in human history than all the physical diseases combined. This book is a powerful antidote to that dread.”

    Larry Dossey, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Healing Words

  • “Jim Tucker is a worthy successor to Dr. Ian Stevenson. He approaches these fascinating cases of children who appear to remember previous lives with an intelligent curiosity, sober judgment, and a real knack for telling a story, which is a good thing, because these are great stories.”

    Tom Shroder, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and author of Old Souls: Compelling Evidence from Children Who Remember Past Lives

  • “A breezy page-turner…Tucker presents these cases…with professioanlism and palpable respect.”

    Spirituality and Health

  • “Return to Life comes as a resounding wake-up call regarding human existence…The empirical evidence that Dr. Tucker presents in this book challenges the reductionistic, metaphysical beliefs of scientific materialism…The empirical facts he reveals compel us to reassess even our most fundamental assumptions about consciousness, human nature, and the universe at large.”

    B. Alan Wallace, PhD, president of the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies and author of Dreaming Yourself Awake
