""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"
"Dr. Eben Alexander's near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon. [He] is living proof of an afterlife."--Raymond A. Moody, M.D., Ph.D., author of "Life After Life"
"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"
