Sadly, this quantish person says:

"As another example of how scientists tend to handle unwelcome data, 
let's look at the reaction to Schwartz's publication of The Afterlife 
Experiments. In my view, Schwartz' results are proof, beyond any 
reasonable doubt, of life after death."

I had the unhappy experience of ploughing with gritted teeth and 
rising gorge through Schwartz's appalling book. The more interesting 
parapsychologists I spoke to tended to reject his supposed scientific 
work (of that time), sometimes with disdain and even contempt, to my relief.

On the other hand, some of his quite recent attempts at triple blind 
mediumship does show some promise. It's all in the details.
