Format: Paperback
This book is the personal story of a woman who had two near-death experiences while she was in the hospital undergoing extensive treatment for a severe back condition. Her story on a personal level is interesting, but more than that, this book has alot of information about the NDE, and what the experiencers go through AFTER it happens to them, and how to understand it, cope with it, and incorporate it into their lives. All the big names of researchers of NDEs are consulted, and there is alot to be learned for everyone, especially the experiencer themselves. It's all about understanding this true and real phenomena, and how to deal with it. Interesting and helpful. ... The experience is totally real and it's about time we talked about it! It's for all of us to learn from. Important book!

Format: Paperback
Barbara Harris wrote this book in 1989 as the first near-death experiencer to share her memoirs. And she was in a perfect position to do it because -- she was also a researcher at the University of Connecticut researching the near-death experience with the top people in the field, Bruce Greyson, MD and Ken Ring, PhD. Whatever she shared in this book, was also shared by the 100s of people they interviewed. Her story explains the results of the research -- that people experiencing a profound spiritual awakening, near-death and in other ways -- can have an energy arousal that is not understood by Western medicine. She continues this explanation in her next book Spiritual Awakenings.

Barbara Harris Whitfield is extraordinarily insightful on the matter of Near Death Experience, having experienced one herself and then working in hospital settings where she saw people who were also NDErs.
Her personal story and her eloquent, lucid and compelling way of competently expressing the difficulties, positive and negative effects of non-NDErs, and coming to terms with the ND experience in one's life is a priceless gift.
I'm glad to have this book and hope that others also see the value in having it on hand for reference.

Format: Paperback
In his Introduction to this 1990 book, professor of psychiatry Bruce Greyson (co-author of The Near-Death Experience: Problems, Prospects, Perspectives) says that "this not a far-out story. Barbara's near-death experience is not extraordinary... I have heard hundreds of accounts that are more fantastic, more other-worldly, and more awe-inspiring than hers." (Pg. 2) Greyson also later provides a "Scientific Commentary" on Ms. Harris and the book.

The book states, "Carol [a friend] asked Barbara to see a movie called Resurrection... Little did she know that the spontaneous decision to see Resurrection, a film neither of them knew anything about, would trigger recurring visions of the images she'd seen during the NDE." (Pg. 68)

They recount that "a man who had shunned books most of his life" had an NDE, and began blurting out things such as "quantum," "Max Planck," and even visualized passages from Planck's book Scientific Autobiography and other papers." (Pg. 130-131)

They record a conversation: "'Being close to death is a reliable trigger for this kind of experience, but there are many other triggers besides being close to death,' Barbara said... 'It changed my life completely!' Elaine said. 'You're kind of drafted into this. It's not something that you ask for. All at once you're picked up and put into an experience and brought back to life. It changes your whole perspective.'" (Pg.

The book was in almost new condition. It arrived fast. Price was more than reasonable. I am very satisfied with it, as it was an out of print old edition, impossible to get from regular retailers.
