Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Well written and good Narration"

    I'm fascinated by the NDE. This book is written by someone who was very skeptical about the whole idea, but went to work in a Hospice, which started her on this journey of trying to find answers.. Also, her mother had dementia, and I assume she needed to be assured that there was something better waiting for her mom.. My parents both suffer from different forms of dementia, so I would guess that attracted me to this particular book. It's well worth the listen (or read).. Lots of fascinating stories as well as theories from professionals, both pro and con.. I've listen and read a number of NDE books.. some were just a little too religious for my taste, while others just felt true.. This is one of those true ones..

    "wanted to hear more specifics"

    I would have enjoyed more specific details of interviewees experiences instead of the general overall picture of what a death experience is.

    Story
    "Very Interesting Research"

    I purchased this book due to the recent death of my son, though I had read many near death books 20 or so years ago. This was well researched and revealed a great deal about the unknown masses who have had near death experiences. I wanted her to include many more examples, but a book can go on, only so long.

    She asked some good questions for us to think about and made some good observations that gave more meat to the overall near death experiences.

    This is the first time I've ever heard about such a medical operation and I'm most impressed as to what occurred during it. There are many, many things we don't really know yet.

    Story
    "one of the worst"

    I'm a Christian and don't buy what this book says, it talks about it does not matter if you believe in God or not you will have a happy after life, such rubbish. If God had not come to me just after getting home from work one day and the ceiling in my living room faded away to a soft light with so love and peace and a voice from heaven asked I am the Lord your God do you receive me and I said yes Lord I do. I was awakened that day. It does matter if you received Jesus Christ or not. Don't waste your time with this book.

    Story
    "A look at things to come. . .!"
    What made the experience of listening to Glimpsing Heaven the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it's something we'll all experience - one day!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Characters as individuals didn't matter too much; it was the flow of ideas and experiences.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not yet.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    As a non fiction book, this would be more of a documentary.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
