Ride shotgun with author and award-winning copywriter Josh Langley as he battles his inner-cynic and subjects himself to a barrage of strange and creepy adventures as a result of his lifelong obsession with the afterlife.
Determined to find out what happens when we die but realising it’s unlikely that an obliging ghost is going to jump out in front of him with the verdict, Josh designs his own unique “afterlife investigation plan” and sets off on an extraordinary journey in a quest for answers to the question we all secretly want to know.
Things get a little weird and spooky as he visits crematoriums, experiments with out-of-body experiences, attempts past-life regressions, conjures up dead people, converses with his long dead grandmother and is scared witless on a terrifying ghost hunt, to name a few.
Explore the paranormal from the safety of your armchair with Dying to Know a humorous and moving travelogue like nothing else before it. Join Josh as he searches for answers to the question that has plagued him for years, and reaches his final, and somewhat surprising, thought-provoking conclusion.

Josh Langley takes a refreshingly honest, down to earth (no pun intended) approach to the subject matter. His breezy style will quickly disarm hard core skeptics. And even though Josh makes no bones ( no pun intended, again) about his desire to find proof of life after death, he doesn’t let this influence his findings (often phenomena is discovered to be completely natural) His exploits take him on an eye opening tour of a crematorium, a genuinely hair raising ghost hunt, and a bizarre night in an abandoned classroom attempting to communicate with the the spirits of two school kids. Langleys persona is affably self deprecating at times, but always entertaining. This is one journey worth taking and Langley is the ideal tour guide. Does he discover proof of life after death? You’ll just have to read the book to find out.- Wayne
One of the main reasons I love this book is because it is Josh’s PERSONAL JOURNEY! There’s no “it happened to a friend of a friend of mine”, and that’s what makes it a very real book. I felt like I was right there in the thick of things with Josh and Andy while they were on their adventures. I was so excited when I receive this book I read it in two sittings, I just couldn’t put it down! Well done Josh, can’t wait for the next book =) – Stelle
As someone who “enjoys” the topic of death as much as you do, I found your book Dying to Know refreshingly candid and so easily readable. I love your style of writing – both serious and fun at the same time, and sometimes scary! I love that you are curious and searching – continually asking questions – how else do you define who you are or where you fit in this vast universe of ours? Like you, I see death as simply a part of life – something that we have to start accepting as part of living, something that has to be talked about openly and not behind closed doors anymore. Bring death out in the open – and let’s all be comfortable with the fact that there is only one certainty in all our lives – that we will all eventually die. Your book is a great way to bring this topic out in the open. I have recommended it to our participants and I know that they will enjoy reading it. – Irene
I love your style and the way you have constructed and broken down the different parts of your journey. I would have no hesitation in recommending “Dying to Know” to others.
I know it is about your personal journey but it is also a wonderful gift to those that perhaps do not have that persistent voice inside that is pushing them or they are not listening.
For those that do not know where to start, but have questions, it can be a road map.
It shows different ways that can be experienced to find answers and clearly shows that they are not black and white. And although that is how it is, you will still get your answer if you allow it to come to you, perhaps not how you envisaged though. “Letting Go” and “Allow”, are still very much a part of my vocabulary when talking to participants of the programs or the workshops I am facilitating at. It was an honour to be a part of your journey. – Gwen Jones
This book is enjoyable reading. The style is comfortable and easy, taking the reader along on the writer’s journey. He explores a variety of the areas people need to know about, such as the validity of mediums, reincarnation, and past-life regression. While being personal and humorous, the author does provide a good overview of the evidence showing that we are eternal beings having a physical experience. Craig R Hogan.
