Well, if you've never read anything about this topic, then it would be a good read as it presents the possibility that there is something that comes after this life. And it also provided reference to a good number of studies on this topic. However, I did find that I got a little bit tired of trying to keep track of the various studies that the author used to back up the instances of NDE's. I definitely think it's a good place to start though.

Very Disappointing. The two biggest flaws/faults with this book is (a) the constant reference to statistics and (b) the same things said over and over and over again. It didn't convince me of anything which I had not already been convinced of before. There were a few small parts of the book that was interesting and added to my knowledge but for the most part, you can achieve just as much by doing a thorough search for NDEs on the Internet without wasting your money on this book.

I wish there were more content, the stories were fun to read, I wanted more! It would of been nice if it was a bit more scientific and philosophical. Perhaps interviews with people studying this phenomenon. I guess I will have to look elsewhere for more depth.

This book helped to assure me that my spouse is in a happy, loving and peaceful place with his family and friends that had gone on before. It delivered everything promised. I highly recommend it to anyone grieving for a loved one that has died.

As time goes on, it seems that more and more cases of near death experiences are recorded. This has resulted in a potential wealth of valuable data just waiting to be captured and studied in a careful and meticulous way. In this fascinating book, that is exactly what was done. The authors have used the scientific approach by adopting careful research techniques combined with statistical methods to sort through a vast amount of carefully collected data. They have weeded out cases that seem wanting for various reasons, set up criteria on which to base their analyses, performed various meaningful comparisons between selected groups of cases and came to some intriguing conclusions. The cases that are discussed include those from small children to adults to people from different cultures and religious beliefs. Arguments brought forth by sceptics are also carefully discussed.

As far as actual "proof" is concerned, that is something that readers can decide for themselves. In my opinion, the authors should have clearly defined what would constitute, by any standard, a truly concrete and unequivocal proof, and then compared their conclusions with that definition. Nevertheless, the evidence presented is indeed immensely compelling.

The writing style is very clear, accessible, friendly, inspiring, authoritative and quite captivating. The research techniques and analyses are very clearly explained. In fact, some passages read like parts of a scientific report. This is a book that should be of great interest to everyone - sceptics, believers and those who are not sure what to believe.

I was a skeptic before reading Jeffrey Long and Paul Perry's book titled "Evidence of the Afterlife", but since we all have our eventual death in common, the book intrigued me enough to purchase it and read it front to back. I think the book definitely presents a strong case, with a lot of research and data behind it. Some of the presentation of the data was tiresome, but great for those who love to read all the facts. I thought it was written well, with a nice personal touch, Jeffrey Long come across like a very nice, intelligent man. I highly recommend for those interested in NDEs and want some well thought out proof.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon February 26, 2010
If you are only going to read one book that deals with near death experiences, this is the one to read. Having read numerous publications on this topic, while all of them were good in their own right, this one gives the best summarial statements and proofs of the existence of NDEs. Having had an NDE myself less than a year ago, I can personally verify that what the author writes about is absolutely true. This is a state of heightened awareness, is a completely surreal experience, it does change your life's outlook, your fear of death is lessened considerably and that there is a lack of words to describe the event itself.

But this author takes this process even one step further. Having created a website the allows persons to detail their personal NDEs, Jeffery Long MD is able to take the data from these surveys and conclude, from his studies, that there is life after death and that NDEs are merely one manner of showing that. He bases his conclusion on nine different parameters each of which would lead to the conclusion of a likelihood of the survival of consciousness after death. By adding the conclusions of all nine parameters together, however, the author feels that he is compelled to conclude that life after physical death is inevitable. While none of us can know this with 100% certainty until it occurs to us (myself included), it is encouraging to have this conclusion be reached by a man of science, where facts drive conclusions, and not merely by a religious figurehead who 'feels through faith' that this will occur.
