I have read numerous books on this topic in the past but this book covers the subject in more depth. The subject is presented in a clear and objective manner making it easy to understand. This book is organized into five detailed chapters. The first part (the experience/experiencer) gives an overview of the history, types of experiences and other information. The second part (afterward) covers lives turned upside down, undeniable aftereffects, differences between child and adult experiences and other issues. The third part (time out for questions) deals with are the dead really dead, heavy on research, the scientific naysayers (my favorite chapter), debunking the debunkers and religion’s got a gripe, too. The fourth part (taking a leap beyond) and explores the subject from a different perspective. The final part (back down to earth) covers brain/biology link, but are the claims true and other topics. There is also a lot of great information in the appendixes section.
Even though reading this book did not convince me that near-death experiences cannot be explained by using the scientific method alone; nevertheless, there are some facts that certainly made me think more deeply on the subject. If you are interested in near-death issues you should check out this book.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Tactical Principles of the most effective combative systems).
There is one more thing that makes this book special -- its positive energy in spite of its morbid subject. It seems to stem from the authors' liberating intention to be truthful and a profound knowledge of their subject. It was a pleasure to read this book.
