Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Outstanding work, & delivery"
    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.

    "Such a good book, but so poorly read."
    Would you try another book from Richard Martini and/or Richard Martini?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The message.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could have been professionally done, with patience and aptitude.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Damn... You were "this close" to greatness and pissed it away. Sorry, but Richard Martini also knows it's true. He has to.

    Story
    "The worst read book I have ever listened to."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story was great, if you can get by the lip smacking and general horribly mouth noises


    What did you like best about this story?

    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


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Martini’s performances?

    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


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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


    Any additional comments?

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Interesting and well done w/only a minor complaint"
    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.

    "Flipside was a flipping disappointment."
    Would you try another book from Richard Martini and/or Richard Martini?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Richard Martini’s story?

    His reading style rushes what little story there was to read.


    How could the performance have been better?

    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.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Flipside?

    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.

    "Enjoyable, Expanding, Human, & heartfelt delivery"

    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.

    "If you liked Journey Of Souls..."
    Would you listen to Flipside again? Why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Flipside to and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Martini’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't yet


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When one of the patients described their experience in the afterlife as a white classroom and it brings the story of his wife's deathbed visions full circle

    "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
