    The tome that is 'Irreducible Mind' is very good, heavy on the academic stuff, which is to be expected, but good nonetheless.
    Ian Stevenson's books are very good from what I'm told
    Dean Radin's books (although I shudder at his association with Chopra)

    Currently seems to be available as a free download for Kindle:
    http://www.amazon.com/Heaven-Available-Help-John-McGinnis-ebook/dp/B00IBI5G84/

    I've not read that one, but found the previous two books in the series interesting/thought provoking, though they may not be to everyone's taste.

    Now reading Ian Stevenson's Cases of the Reincarnation Type, Vol. I: Ten Cases in India. (1975). Some good ones in there, but I've heard it say there are even better ones in the next tome, Sri Lanka. Strictly from a reading perspective, though, the manner of presentation can get a little repetitive, but the scientific process requires it I guess.

    Going back to Stevenson, I've taken a short break from my recently started UFO journey, focusing on the nults and bolts perspective. Keith Chester's Strange Company (2007) is a pretty good book on the foo fighter phenomena during WWII, including a lot of lesser known solid craft sightings, not just luminous light phenomena. Before that, I REALLY enjoyed the classic The UFO Evidence (1964), by Richard Hall/NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena). If you want tons and tons of data on the best of sightings from the mid-1940s to the early 60s, selecting the very best cases from the very best witnesses, and engaging in really fun (but serious stuff) like pattern analysis, the various UFO waves that occurred, in North America and around the world. Strictly empirical, but awesome if you're into data, or if your favorite bedtime reading is reading the phone book - just kidding. This is one of the books that people like Stanton Friedman consistently bring out that Skeptics don't bother to read. All that stuff documented in Leslie Kean's book (strong cases by strong witnesses), it was already there, and in spades.

    You can read it online if you look around, but I found it easier reading through a used 1997 reprint of the original (which had been sent to all members of Congress). For many years until '97. this stuff was on the black market, and hard to get:

    I fully agree with this Amazon reviewer:
