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, this audiobook documents interviews with hypnotherapists around the world trained in the method pioneered by Dr. Michael Newton, as well as examining actual between life sessions.
The author agreed to go on the same journey himself, with startling and candid results, learning that we are fully conscious between our various incarnations, return to connect with loved ones and spiritual soul mates, and together choose how and when and with whom we'll reincarnate.
Martini 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 listener 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 listened to Flipside, you'll never see the world in the same way again.

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 ;-)
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.
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...
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.
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.
I would recommend reading this book to ANYONE, but the manner in which it was read was very disheartening. I want to listen over and over, but it comes off as breathy, rushed and unprofessional. I'm wondering if it was done in a home studio and in one or two sessions. The words written required patience and flow and they come off like he was late for dinner or needed to do something else that was more important at the time.Overall, I would STILL suggest it, but damn... Just damn. I hate half-ass work.
It could have been professionally done, with patience and aptitude.
Damn... You were "this close" to greatness and pissed it away. Sorry, but Richard Martini also knows it's true. He has to.
The research that went into it was outstanding
Too many to pick just one
Yes, I was enthralled
I would recommend this to serious seekers
The story was great, if you can get by the lip smacking and general horribly mouth noises
The story was good, I'd recommend getting the Kindle version and reading it yourself. It was so badly read full of lip smacking and general mouth noises, which are terribly annoying. The dude spelled out words he couldn't pronounce. annoying could have done way better
If Richard himself read the book and it was this bad than no. But with a different reader yes, I read the story and I enjoyed it
The story was great the book itself was well done, just the reader shouldn't read a 2 year old a bedtime story let alone an actual book. Guy really need to learn to read to people, he can read just not to anyone else. It takes a special type of actor to do books...that dude was terrible
Aside from the reader being horrible? not really...People don't waste your money or credits on this version, buy it for your kindle or whatever you read on and do it yourself...You will be able to actually enjoy the story...You could tell between lip smackings the reader was board and didn't like the story. Seriously Audible if you guys put out another book that is read this bad I will drop this app...total waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
His reading style rushes what little story there was to read.
He should have hired a professional story teller. I don't mind hearing his cat meowing in the background, but I felt like he was cutting corners to save a buck.
People in the film business are always dropping names to bolster their credibility. For me, it does just the opposite. A solid script doesn't need to be over stuffed.
This book can stand on it's own as a book examining and sharing after life and in-between lives experiences.
Beautifully narrated by the author, I really enjoyed his descriptions of the photographs or illustrations that must be at the beginning of his chapters.
At the end are books that are recommended reading, books that would add to one's knowledge of this topic, and while I've read many books on afterlife, or Consciousness, or to do with a greater reality beyond our five senses and physical matter, about 2/3rds of the books listed were ones I'd never known about, so I appreciate the recommendations.
The narrative, unlike some books relating what people say upon hypnotic regression, is less "case-like" and more a personal relation and presentation. I liked it and it made the book flow and had relevance since the author was the main connection.
One surprise to me was the number of influential and respectable people in the entertainment industry who are aware and awake, and very likely influencing in a positive way the masses through their touch, here and there, on some messages that go out.
Of course, there is a negative element that is doing the opposite. Which brings me to a question or criticism, there doesn't seem to be any mention of a negative influence in talking of "the other side". As if it doesn't exist.
In Tom Campbell's My Big TOE, there is acknowledgement of some negativity in the greater reality, and while his description of the greater reality is more map-like or more of a blueprint style, and much broader in scope, there is at least some mention of negatives. Even Robert Monroe's trilogy of books, of which only the first book (and least interesting) is recommended at the end of this book, mentions the negatives.
The people's stories shared here are fascinating, and like those in Dolores Cannon's books there are interesting regressions that are shared, such as that of an ET now in human form, as a walk-in, and of someone who saw Jesus Christ in person. Most people have probably read Dr. Brian Weiss's and Michael Newton's books if they are interested in this topic, but even if they haven't this book, Flipside, could stand on its own for the first time reader.
However, there are hints in some books that the astral area, of which these past life regressions cover in the life-between-life revelations, may be a trap in which we reincarnate over and over again in order to provide *something* to somewhere else, maybe in some type of energy format. In physicist/OBEer Tom Campbell's My Big TOE there is an explanation that indicates that the astral area is just one subset to a much greater reality. He explains how the beings we relate to (family friends guides councils) are more like relatable sub-programs, but without freewill. In Robert Monroe's 2 later books humanity has a chance to break out of this astral recycling.
So, I enjoyed this, and even though I have been affected by other books and sources of information like youtube vidoes, to have a perception of the astral plane and these guides and councils as a limiting factor in our higher evolution, it would still be neat to explore past lives or life between life. The Newton method trained people seem to have a high recommendation per this book.
A very interesting book, and an enjoyable way to expand one's thinking.
I probably will listen to Flipside again. It's one of those few books I would actually like to listen again in a few years to remind me about the message it has and to relive the stories and feel the sense of peace again this book brings about to me.
Journey of Souls by Michael NewtonDestiny of Souls by Michael NewtonMemories of the Afterlife by Michale NewtonAll of these because the author of this book has the same philosophy on the purpose of live and reincarnation and they both provide countless anecdotes of moving cases of hypnotherapy sessions and real world stories. Both are thought provoking, and provide me a sense of peace and oneness. Listening to this type of book is my version of meditation.

I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.
The content in this book is, in a word, beautiful. Most who would seek out a book like this are either already receptive to the message or otherwise open-minded enough to digest it. Naturally, not everyone will believe it or want to. The good news is that's not one of those books about new age crystal chanting or whatever. It's about the common themes learned in past life regression and life between life therapies, which are still controversial but gaining traction in psychological practice. Whether you believe or not, the idea is compelling, and the messages are thought-provoking. Some points in this book are easier to digest than others, which is to be expected from anyone with even a hint of skepticism about them. What will likely be the most difficult thing to wrap your head around is the lack of judgment as a result of immoral action. Such things are explained, and it's on the reader to accept those explanations.
The audio quality on this title is poor, as though the author recorded this on his personal home setup. It's good enough for podcasting, but hardly professional level. Each chapter seems to have a different volume and/or distance between the speaker and the microphone. Professional filters and edits for lip smacking and tripped over words are non-existent. There are a handful of issues where the sound simply drops out and picks up a few seconds later. If I were to guess, there was one attempt to record each chapter, and the settings had to be readjusted every time. The performance is otherwise heartfelt and honest, but for all intents, this sounds like the audio equivalent of slapdash self-publishing. It's distracting in the extreme, which is a shame on any title, but more so when you feel the content deserves so much better. For spiritual seekers, it's well worth pushing past the problems to hear the messages, for only then can you know how those messages will translate on a personal level.
Not sure if it was worth my time due to poor narration.
He kept making mistakes, like starting his sentences over again.
The content seemed to be interesting, but due to all the mistakes of the narrator, I found myself starting to listen for and even counting the mistakes instead of concentrating on the book's contents. Should have had a professional narrator.
I did not read the print version.
Throughout the book he references to numerous situations that are substantiated with objective facts, and same facts from different therapists, authors, patients. I read Michael Newton's 3 books some 15 years ago, and respect his approach:- question and answer format, that requires tremendous work; detailed, comprehensive, unbiased, acute observation, with the benefit of doubt at hand.
No. I have not listened to his other performances.
Defending your Life.
Reading subjects like this, life after death, (including bible), requires our outmost Critical Thinking skills, Intuition, inner sense, insights and Mindfulness, keen observational skills; to separate the wheat from the chaff. And in my view, both Michael Newton's and Martini's work stand on solid ground. I give 5 stars. Thank you Richard Martini for your great work, and putting yourself through this ordeal.
"slow down Richard Martini!!"
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
