Publisher's Summary

What happens to consciousness during the act of dying? The most compelling answers come from people who almost die and later recall events that occurred while lifesaving resuscitation, emergency care, or surgery was performed. These events are now called near-death experiences (NDEs). As medical and surgical skills improve, innovative procedures can bring back patients who have traveled farther on the path to death than at any other time in history. Physicians and healthcare professionals must learn how to appropriately treat patients who report an NDE. It is estimated that more than 10 million people in the United States have experienced an NDE. Hagan and the contributors to this volume engage in evidence-based research on near-death experiences and include physicians who themselves have undergone a near-death experience. This book establishes a new paradigm for NDEs. 

The book is published by University of Missouri Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks. 

“A landmark study of seemingly trascendent consciousness reported by patients who were revived after dying.” (Raymond A. Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life After Life)

“As editor of Missouri Medicine, 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)

“Offers interesting insight into NDE research.” (Choice)

Pseudoscience at its best

This is a concise, well-chosen collection of essays summing up the very non-scientific work and conclusions of folks purporting to be at the forefront of scientific NDE research. The misinterpretation of quantum physics is glaringly bad.

So-So

If you're into numbers, stats, percentages surrounding the incidence of NDEs, proceed as usual from the Foreword and onward. Otherwise, go directly to chapter 5 for a collection of personal stories of individuals who have had a Near Death Experience. Nothing remarkable here, but if you're interested in the topic, there are worse ways to spend about 3 hours before the book lapses back into tedious data-driven observations. Narration is fine.
