There are several books that directly address the concept of past lives. I personally have read Have you lived before this life? and found it fascinating. These books are not sold yet in general bookstores to the best of my knowledge. If you wish you can send me E-mail directly and I can get you any of the following books or you can call

Book: Have you lived before this life? The subject of past lives has mystified man for eons. This book is an adventure into the memories of over 40 people who have recalled past lives through the use of SCIENTOLOGY.

Book: Scientology: A history of Man This is the cold-blooded and factual account of your last 60 trillion years. Learn the real truth about man's ancestry. These breakthoughs led to the development of the OT* levels. An extension course is available for this book.

*OT means Operating Thetan
