About the Author
P.M.H. Atwater is a global leader in the study of the NDE. She dedicates her life to investigate and report near-death phenomena using a systematic, scientific method. Through her efforts, medical workers who routinely deal with trauma and emergencies are now recognizing and recording the near-death experience and sharing them. In 2001, the medical journal Lancet reported on the near-death experience, for the first time citing the work of Atwater to the global medical community. This book is the culmination of her life-long work and is written to be a sourcebook for doctors, nurses, EMTs, and anyone who has experienced either first hand or through a loved one the life-altering near-death phenomenon. She has appeared on Larry King Live, Regis and Kathy Lee, and Geraldo and is a workshop leader at major spiritual/holistic gatherings. She has addressed audiences at International Association for Near-Death Studies conferences, as well as the United Nations.
