With a well-written and clear narrative delivered in layperson’s terms, this book chronicles Dr. Greyson’s incredible quest to learn all he could about near-death experiences, or NDEs. He begins by telling readers of his pragmatic upbringing and how his skepticism fueled his need to study all he could. He presents many firsthand examples of his “Experiencers” episodes, telling his audience how these NDEs were transformative for every Experiencer and how the event not only affected how they felt about dying but also changed their view on living. He also states that 10 percent of people will have an NDE so there is no way to tell who will or won’t have one, and that NDEs have become much more socially acceptable and an Experiencer today would be much less likely to be offered counseling as in the past. He also tells readers how his title reflects the mixed focus of not only life after death but also life after an NDE.
VERDICT This book is educational and informative. Both professional and fans of nonfiction books on NDEs will find this important work a must read.
