Reviews

"A subject currently the focus of intense public discussion, this book conveys a lot of important information in a very brief compass."--Edward F. Kelly, University of Virginia, author of Beyond Physicalism: Toward Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality
"A landmark study of seemingly trascendent consciousness reported by patients who were revived after dying. Research into such experiences began with Greek philosophers, including Plato and Democritus, but Dr. Hagan's book will be the gold standard on this subject for years to come. The book brings together historical, philosophical, psychological, clinical and neuroscientific aspects of near-death experiences to illuminate one of the deepest mysteries of human existence."--Raymond A. Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life After Life
"As editor of Missouri Medicine, the journal of the state medical association, Hagan resolved to put into words, as reasoned and rational as possible, what people in near-death states say they've experienced."--The Kansas City Star
"The work's authors suggest an openness to comprehending NDEs and further exploration of how these experiences may inform a broader perspective of consciousness. Overall, this book offers interesting insight into NDE research."--Choice
