Dr Eben Alexander's near-death experience is the most astounding I
have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon.
In my opinion, Dr Alexander is living proof of an afterlife. * Dr
Raymond Moody, bestselling author of Life After Life *
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. * Dr Bruce Greyson, Carlson Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences, University of Virginia School of Medicine; co-editor of The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences *
An interesting account of how a man's spiritual beliefs were fundamentally changed by an unforeseen and nearly fatal event * Glasgow Herald *
I don't know whether Heaven exists, but I do believe that Eben's account is real and that he witnessed a part of the Universe that most of us haven't seen * Anthony Peake, author of Is There Life After Death?: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die and Making Sense of Near Death Experiences *
A man of science coming out for life after death has extra resonance, rather like Richard Dawkins saying 'God bless.' Based on his own life experience after falling into a coma, it's a fascinating read whatever your own opinions * Belfast Telegraph *
