If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to comeback to life?
Investigative journalist Judy Bachrach has collectedaccounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memoriesof what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing.Clinical death - the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activityceases - is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors arenow beginning to concede. Hundreds of thousands of fascinating post-deathexperiences have been documented, and for many who have died and returned, lifeis forever changed.
These days, an increasing number of scientific researchersare turning their studies to people who have experienced what the author callsdeath travels - putting stock and credence in the sights, encounters, andexciting experiences reported by those who return from the dead. Throughinterviews with scores of these "death travelers," and with physicians, nurses,and scientists unraveling the mysteries of the afterlife, Bachrach redefinesthe meaning of both life and death. Glimpsing Heaven reveals both the uncertainty and the surprising joys of life after death.

A look at things to come. . .!
The fact that it's something we'll all experience - one day!
Characters as individuals didn't matter too much; it was the flow of ideas and experiences.
As a non fiction book, this would be more of a documentary.
As a subject this is something that has always fascinated me, and the older I get the more fascinating it becomes. But I liked the fact that this book was not just an endless list of similar stories; it was more a set of ideas with people whose stories supported the ideas.
A fascinating book, well written, albeit from an American point of view - not a criticism - and the narration was very good.
Content very Interesting
She gives a lot of detail about each person and their experiences. She interviews the experiencers and this fills out their stories. The nature of the death experience is also explored and she considers the ideas of those who have made a study of this phenomenon.
Most books on the topic do not give much detail. The author has done a great job in finding out more about the people and what happened to them before and after their NDE.
I did not like the narration at all. In fact I found her reading style very distracting and irritating. Her pausation is very odd It made me wish I had bought the kindle version.
No it is pretty comprehensive.
I recommend it for anyone interested in this phenomenon as it's one of the best books on the topic.
