This is a good book to read if you are curious about near death experiences (NDE) and want an MD's perspective. Dr Alexander's experience is amazing to read about. His recovery is also amazing.

As far as "proof" of heaven - that can be argued still. I read many reviews before I purchased this book and saw several poor ones. These mainly centered around the lack of concrete "proof". Don't expect that and the book is a good read. Heaven and the afterlife are about faith in God and the spiritual world. No book will convince skeptics in my opinion. Even if you don't believe in heaven and an afterlife, this is a great story about what happened to the Dr and his experience while in coma.

Another thing to be aware of is the Dr's perspective. He comes from a science background with specialty in the brain as a neurosurgeon. He spends a lot of time explaining why he believes that his brain could not have created the memory or experience. I read lots of books dealing with science and mainly am a non-fiction reader. That made the book more enjoyable for me. But - it may not be for everyone.

If you read this from a skeptical perspective, you can find plenty to criticize. Read it with an open mind or belief already and this is a excellent story sprinkled with neuroscience. I recommend it

Regardless of how detailed this person's experience was, and how unusual his physical condition was, it is still a subjective case of ONE person's Near Death Experience. It isn't "proof" of anything. The fact that his brain wasn't supporting consciousness in the way that is currently understood doesn't mean that his consciousness was separate from the brain Maybe it was, but this isn't proof - not in the way that proof is defined scientifically. It would be more compelling if there were other cases like his that had similar experiences. I understand that the rare nature of his disease/condition makes that difficult. BUT - it was very interesting, especially the level of detail he experienced. I would dearly like it to be true.… (lisätietoja)
