About the Author
Since completing her Ed.D. in counselor education in 1988, Dr. Janice Miner Holden has been on faculty at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton, Texas, where she is now a professor of counseling and chair of the Department of Counseling and Higher Education. Jan’s primary specialization is the transpersonal perspective in counseling, addressing the counseling implications of experiences that transcend the usual limits of space, time, and/or identity, and their associated developmental potential. In particular, she has researched near-death experiences (NDEs), with more than 30 journal articles and chapters as well as numerous presentations, on the topic. Beginning in 2000, Jan served 6 years on the board of directors of the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), 3 of them as president. She was lead editor of The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation (Santa Barbara, CA: Praeger/ABC-CLIO, 2009). At UNT, she developed and regularly teaches a course on the transpersonal perspective in counseling. Jan is a Texas Licensed Professional Counselor, Texas Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, National Certified Counselor, and American Center for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences (ACISTE) Certified Mental Health Professional. Dr. Stathis Avramidis has served aquatics and water safety as an athlete, lifeguard, instructor, academic, and media professional since 1993. In Greece, he works as an Advisor of Health Education and Accident Prevention at the General Secretariat of Public Health at the Ministry of Health, as an Associate in the Hellenic Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, and as a Director of lifesaving sport at the Hellenic Federation of Underwater Activity. He was a Lecturer of Aquatics/Visiting Research Fellow at Leeds Metropolitan University (2003–2012) and presented the TV program Prevention and Rescue (2012). He holds a diploma in adapted physical education, a degree in sport science-physical education (University of Athens), an M.Sc. in sport-exercise science, and a Ph.D. with a thesis on the topic of drowning (Leeds Metropolitan University). He has authored approximately 300 publications and conference presentations on water safety and was honored many times around the world, including the Paragon Aquatic Safety and the ISHOF Service awards by the International Swimming Hall of Fame and two diplomas by the Royal Life Saving Society Commonwealth.

I applaud the authors for their diligence and devotion to bringing this topic to light for public consumption, as any accounts of near-death experiences are often looked upon with skepticism, especially by those in the scientific community. Doubters in a "hereafter" or the existence of an afterlife may remain skeptic after reading this book, however, a doubter will often remain a skeptic regardless of evidence to the contrary. This book details the stories of people from all walks of life all over the world and the irrefutable evidence and commonalities they all share.
