5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best book about a near-death experience -- ever!, April 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing (Hardcover)
A book review should concentrate on the book, not the reviewer, but in this case I think it would be appropriate to say a few things about myself at the outset - things that make me, if not unique, then at least rare among the other reviewers of this book. First of all, I have been researching and writing about near-death experiences (NDEs) since 1977. During that time, I have personally interviewed or talked extensively with hundreds of near-death experiencers and have dozens of autobiographical accounts of such persons in my own library. I have also written a number of books on NDEs and scores of articles on the subject. In addition, I have had the pleasure, and indeed the privilege, of spending several hours with the author, Anita Moorjani, of the book under review here. So I think I know something about the subject of NDEs.

That said, I am prepared to say that Dying to be Me is perhaps the most compelling, insightful and deeply moving rendering of an NDE I have encountered over the past 35 years. It is a book that not only tells an incredibly gripping story of an NDE and the healing from a disease that seemed destined to be fatal, but one that also offers a great deal of spiritual and practical wisdom that the author derived from her experience during her otherworldly sojourn.

I haven't read any of the sixty of so reviews of this book (though I noticed that they are overwhelmingly of the 5-star variety), but I'm sure many of them must already inform the reader of the book's contents. I have no need to be redundant on that score here, but for the record, Moorjani, a woman of Indian heritage, grew up in the multi-cultural setting of Hong Kong, eventually contracted cancer, suffered with it for four years and by February, 2006, was taken to a hospital and given no chance to survive the night. However, when she was on the brink of death, she had an extraordinarily powerful NDE, which she recounts with impressive articulateness, and knew in the moment of her experience that she would be healed. Indeed, that she would be completely cured. As in fact she was, to the stupefaction of her oncologists. (All is this documented in the book.) Her life has not been the same since.

Eventually, her story came to the attention of the well-known author, Wayne Dyer, who was so riveted by Anita's account that he spared no effort to track her down and once he did, he told her that she must write a book about her story and he would see to it that it would get published. He did and it did and within a month of its publication, it had deservedly become a best seller.

What more do I need to say? Anita Moorjani is the real deal. Her book is destined to become not only the best seller it already is but a classic among books on NDEs. It will inspire you, thrill you, bring you comfort and bring you joy. You will be deeply touched in so many ways by this book. What are you waiting for?

Dr. Ring -- how wonderful to read your review here!Your book on the NDE experience, "Lessons from the Light," came into my hands several years ago by chance. Halfway through the book, I received a call from my family that my father had gone into a coma. I flew home with the knowledge in my heart that he would be all right, and it changed the way I responded to my dad's death. I am forever grateful for your moving and powerful book. Thank you.
