Review

"Dr. Eben Alexander's near death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon... one of the crown jewels of all near death experiences... Dr. Alexander is living proof of an afterlife." ~ Raymond Moody, MD, PhD “Eben Alexander brings a unique perspective to the sacred world combining a glorious, personal vision of spiritual consciousness with patient, insightful scientific inquiry. Proof of Heaven is a compelling story of what may lie ahead for all of us in the life beyond this one. We have nothing to fear.” —Allan J. Hamilton, MD, FACS, author of The Scalpel and the Soul and Zen Mind, Zen Horse “I can highly recommend this important book that has the potential to break many scientific taboos.” —Dr. Pim van Lommel, cardiologist, author of Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience “Proof of Heaven is more than just an awe-inspiring account of a profound encounter with spiritual reality. Dr. Alexander’s neuroscience career taught him that near-death experiences are brain-based illusions, and yet his personal experience left him dumbstruck. His honest struggle to make sense of this unforgettable journey is a gripping story, unique in the literature of spiritual experiences, that may well change how we understand our role in the universe.” —Bruce Greyson, MD, co-editor of The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences: Thirty Years of Investigation --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is a fascinating account of an NDE by a neurosurgeon. The first half of the book is about the event itself with historical and family background to help the reader understand his perspective. The second half is a summation of what he learned from the event with recommendations for the reader to explore the subject as well. He communicates well a subject that must be very difficult to relay. Truly moving and thought provoking. He leaves the religious questions out of the picture and up to the reader to decide, however, espousing the refreshing viewpoint that we are all loved equally by the Creator. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, well worth the price. Amazon.ca delivered on time!

A trusted friend recommended this book, and he is never wrong... This book is amazing... I must admit I haven't been drawn to NDE books; there are so many on the market right now, but this one is different. Understanding the complexities of the brain and journeying with the Doctor through his coma was facinating to say the least. If you read one NDE (near death experience) book, read this one!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

I experienced a Near Death Experience 4 years ago when I suffered an anaphylactic shock from a medication. I was "clinically dead" for 12 mins. Dr. Alexander's book was extremely helpful in helping to validate some of my experience & also in helping to expand on some of the science and medical knowledge that I needed to provide a fuller understanding of my own experience. I'm a Nurse Practitioner, so I especially appreciated his physiological & neurological explanations, as well as (& primarily) the NDE exploration. Although my own experience differed in some ways from Dr. Alexander's, particularly in the length of time he was "gone", there were many strong similarities between my NDE and his. And the validation he provided was very affirming to me. As a science-based individual & professional, I too had struggled with many of the questions he brings up, yet the very deep "knowing" of the actual experience is irrefutable. Although I've read many other books on the subject since my own "death", this book, Proof of Heaven, is the most accurate, explanatory & deeply resonating one that I've seen. I am deeply appreciative that Dr. Alexander had both the courage & the drive to write & share his experience with everyone.

This book had a profound effect on me. It left me smiling and reassured that the reality that we experience is neither the beginning nor the end of our consciousness. Parts of the book had me close to tears of joyful understanding. If it had been written by less a person and renowned than this highly skilled neurosurgeon, I might have stopped reading with a sigh, thinking that this was just another NDE book that proved nothing. As a scientist who thought he understood consciousness and how the brain controls it, his story with its conclusions left me believing that he is on to something as big as the universe itself. A truly worthwhile read. Do yourself a big favor!

This was an interesting account of a near death experience, given greater credibility by the fact that it was written by a neurosurgeon. His recollections I thought lacked clarity and needed further detail. Admittedly, it must have been profoundly difficult to make sense of the impressions he encountered in his suspended state. His discovery of the continuity of consciousness after death was perhaps the most interesting revelation and conforms with what some modern theologians have also suggested. It was a good read but not the compelling one that I had expected.

My own life experience has taught me that life is a journey and death is our next adventure. But to read about a brain surgeon's proof of our afterlife was not only a page turned but a relief to read about his phenomenal experience. The only way this man could have survived his brain illness and without brain damage is if a miracle had occurred. I'm so happy that this book has been published. Every person alive should read it.

A number of years ago there was an article in Time Magazine about how the brain functions. This statement was made at the end of that piece: "We still don't understand how the brain gives rise to consciousness." No kidding. That's because it doesn't! That fact became apparent to me at the age of 14 when I had what some call a "spontaneous mystical experience" (different from a near death experience). In that moment I experienced my own consciousness as an eternal awareness that did not arise from the brain at all, but existed independently of both the brain and the body. In other words, I had a direct experience of my own soul or spirit. But who was going to listen to a 14 year-old? I am happy that Dr. Alexander has been divinely inspired (or divinely chosen) to share his unique story with the world, and -- as a respected man of science -- give credence to something I have long believed to be true: that there is, indeed, life after life. Written simply and succinctly, this interesting account of Dr. Alexander's experience will comfort many who fear that death is the ultimate end of their conscious existence.
