"Whatever readers believe regarding death and the supernatural, Travis-Henikoff's tender, wise memoir of love, grief and truth-seeking will help them accept death as an affirmation of life's value." "--Publishers Weekly"
"I think your book is very important. The wealth of your extraordinary experiences will help many." --Roger Lewin, author, "Bones of Contention, Origins Reconsidered", and "Principles of Human Evolution"
""Passings" has helped me greatly to understand the incredible and all too often underestimated power of the mind in controlling our mental, psychological, and physical well-being--even and especially in the proximity of death." --Sebastian Fetscher, MD, Frieburg University Medical Center, Germany
"Here is the other side of cancer. I could see, for the first time, the mates and caregivers of my leukemia patients. I had never paid them any attention and so many of them were in worse shape than the patient. I will never again treat only my patients. How could I not have noticed?" --Harvey Priesler, former head of oncology, Rush Medical University
"An""important book and should be published for all of those who struggle through the experience of death without anything to guide them through the storms of conflicting emotions." --John Allman, neuroscientist, California Institute of Technology
"Carole Travis-Henikoff's fascinating story raises questions and mysteries, the kinds of questions that modern science is often afraid to acknowledge and the kinds of mysteries that both scare us and give us hope." --Father Andrew Greeley, priest, sociologist, journalist, and bestselling author
"You have integrated incredible times of reality with experiences we have yet to understand or replicate. And you have kept your head above the waters. I have never read anything to match it." --Daniel Buxhoeveden, brain evolution specialist and affiliated faculty member of the department of religious studies at the University of South Carolina
