From Assante is a bit unusual. Not only is she a medium; she has a PhD from Columbia, and her focus of study is Near Eastern history. That puts her in a position to understand the death traditions of the ancient world, and, of course, as a medium, she can speak directly to the dead. Even if not every reader believes that, Assante’s book offers many fascinating insights into death and dying. She covers not only near-death experiences but also discusses reincarnation, what death feels like, ways to empower yourself to “a good death,” and the role of religion in death practices. There is also much here about communicating with the dead, including plenty of anecdotal evidence. The conversational style and “insider” information make this easy to read, and though skeptics might laugh, those inclined to believe will find this account both comforting and useful. And, on more of a global level, the book’s concluding chapter, “What Would the World Look Like without the Fear of Death?,” is insightful and thought-provoking. --Ilene Cooper

Review “Social historian Assante, who is also a medium, has penned what may be the most important book on the enigma of death since the groundbreaking work of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross....An outstanding read.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Throughout history, the fear of death has caused more suffering for human beings than all the physical diseases combined. You are holding in your hands the cure for this suffering. Some books transform lives. This one may transform a planet.”
Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words and The One Mind

“A convincing glimpse of nonlocal reality, which may be the essence of our immortal being.”
Deepak Chopra, author of Spiritual Solutions and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

The Last Frontier presents a brilliant combination of three categories of evidence for survival of consciousness after death — the science, the history, and personal experience....Exceptionally well grounded and accessible, it offers an important contribution to our understanding of death, dying, and beyond.”
Dean Radin, author of The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds

“Unveils the afterlife as a realm of unlimited possibility, expanded awareness, and ineffable love.”
Dianne Arcangel, author of Afterlife Encounters and coauthor (with Raymond Moody) of Life After Loss

“Julia Assante helps us to approach death in ways that enlarge life, and to grow our ability to step between worlds and have timely and helpful contact with those who are living on the other side....She succeeds magnificently in a venture that is of urgent and essential relevance to all of us.”
Robert Moss, author of The Dreamer’s Book of the Dead and Dreaming the Soul Back Home
