Format: Hardcover
Though technically challenging at times, it won't take long for the reader to pick up the lingo. It makes the reader feels as though they are in the midst of a friendly and very brilliant debate. It will certainly capture the interest of those who have had a Near-Death, or Out-of-Body experience. This book is worth a second read.

Seventy-two percent of our female illness victims had a near-death experience, but the percentage drops to 21 percent for the accident and suicide attempt categories combined. Only 35 percent of the men... had near-death experiences in conjunction with illness, but 59 percent had them when they came close to death through accident or suicide attempt." (Pg.
