About the Author

Anita Moorjani is the New York Times best-selling author of Dying to Be Me, an account of her nearly four-year battle with cancer that culminated in a fascinating and moving near-death experience in 2006, which vastly changed her perspective on life. The book has since been translated into more than 45 languages and sold more than one million copies worldwide. In February 2015, Scott Free Productions (owned by internationally acclaimed Hollywood producer Ridley Scott) optioned the rights to make Dying To Be Me into a full-length feature film. Now completely cancer-free, Anita travels the globe, giving talks and workshops as well as speaking at conferences and special events to share the profound insights she gained while in the other realm. She's regularly interviewed around the world, having appeared on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, Fox News, The Jeff Probst Show, the National Geographic Channel, and the Today show in the U.S., as well as The Pearl Report in Hong Kong, Headstart with Karen Davila in the Philippines, and many others. Anita was born in Singapore of Indian parents. When she was two years old, her family moved to Hong Kong, where she grew up. Because of her background in British education, she is multilingual and has spoken English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously from an early age, later learning French. Before becoming an author and international speaker, Anita worked in the corporate world for many years. Website-www.anitamoorjani.com

Reviews

Growing up in Hong Kong, Moorjani struggled to reconcile her traditional Hindu heritage with a Chinese culture largely under British influence. These divergent cultural expectations amplified a lifelong fear of disapproval and not being "good enough." In 2002 she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, and in 2006 she slipped into a coma as her vital organs began shutting down, although she remained aware of everything going on around her. Describing her ensuing near-death experience as a realm of clarity and expansiveness, "a state of being," Moorjani made the choice to return, and her rapid and remarkable recovery defies all medical understanding. "Realizing that I am love was the most important lesson I learned, allowing me to release all fear, and that's the key that saved my life," Moorjani recalls. Her psychospiritual healing, which continues to this day, was self-realization: of her own magnificence, of oneness with universal energy and with a universe comprising. This candid memoir is a cathartic testimony to the magnificence and healing capacity of every human being. (Mar. 1)e probability of success under various scenarios). With a research-driven approach and scholarly tone, this hefty text escapes the tediousness that characterizes some academic works through the use of anecdotes about real-life founders, each very different, whose stories are woven through the chapters. Also peppered throughout are observations of such well-known entrepreneurs as Apple's Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, and Microsoft's Paul Allen. Sure to be required reading in business school curricula, this illuminating and captivating read will also appeal to aspiring entrepreneurs or founders who want to make better decisions in existing ventures.

"This book is very thought provoking. Can we take the learnings, and make the changes, from someone else's Near Death Experience? Can I create for myself the same level of faith and knowing just by reading this book? Honestly, I don't think I can. But what I can do is open my mind that little bit more, take this book as another brick in building that wall of strength, and take her learnings with me on my own journey. I recommend that you do that same." - Rachel Bell

"I had the pleasure of reading Anita's book after hearing her speak in Sydney, Australia at the end of January. Her NDE experience is profound. The wisdom she shares is life changing." - Cheryl Richardson

"This book reminded me how important it is to live life from a place of passion rather than from a place of fear. No matter what challenge life gives us, it's really important to look for the gift in it. This book is truly amazing." - Vibrant Living with Celine
