Top Customer Reviews
Never having had any Near-Death experience myself, I found this book to be an excellent reading as well an intriguing research on the subject, especially on how the experiences affected one's brain structure/chemistry/function.
It indeed is a big book and well worth a read.
I strongly recommend this for converts and naysayers alike. When you have finished reading this book if you still have a question, you must have skipped a chapter by accident.

This takes up about the first half of the book.
The second half seems to turn attention to the subtitle "The Ultimate guide to what happens when we die." Some of it was interesting and thought provoking. Unfortunately, many of her theories and conclusions are at best a stretch and I think she fails to make a good case on several occasions. I also thought she droned on a bit long on some of her pet theories such as evolutionary change, but you may not mind if you liked her book - Children of the New Millennium.
There are a large number of references throughout the book and in the appendices so the interested reader can check facts and delve deeper in the subject from a variety of authors and researchers.
So I liked the first half - This is a big and excellent book on near death experiences. I learned a lot.
But I did not like the second half - This is not the ultimate guide to what happens when we die.
This is THE book about NDE's and is a must read for anyone even curious about the near-death experience. It is another book that I wish could be given more than 5 stars.
