There are some real pearls of wisdom and some astute observations of human nature, but I find the likes of Tart, Tiller, McTaggart and others far easier to follow - and more orderly - than P.M.H. Atwater's conclusions. Her approach, in my view, is often speculative, although she speaks with complete authority. But all experience, even that of an NDE, is surely filtered through our personal perceptions. I like the poet Rilke's point that we need to have "the courage to live the questions." I would have preferred the author to discuss possiblities rather than aim at certainties.
I would also have liked her to include the fact that people who have survived a major trauma can also have the same kind of mind shift she refers to with NDEs. An important point I would think, because we don't all need an out-of-this-world experience to achieve the transformation described - there's a remarkably similar alchemy to be found in life at ground level.
Perhaps the book was meant to convince (which I didn't need.) But I was disappointed there were few down-to-earth suggestions for approaching one's own reality shifts. To me, therefore, it was more a philosophical exploration than a pragmatic exercise.
