    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    D says: "Spiritually Uplifting -- and entertaining!"
    "This is the best book I have read in years."

    Since the beginning of time, human nature has driven people to explore beyond their surroundings. The results have shaped the world not just in terms of geographic boundaries, but also in the context of spiritual values. Seeking direction, generations have looked to others for spiritual guidance hoping to find timeless wisdom that will withstand any turmoil or hardship. Over time, one message has provided comfort and continues to ring true today: Seek the answer from within, and you will find the truth.

    Story

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Kelly says: "Compelling"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Proof of Heaven to be better than the print version?

    It is read by the author. When there were emotional times in his story, you knew it. It was not done by an actor.


    What other book might you compare Proof of Heaven to and why?

    N/A


    What does Eben Alexander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The detail he gave was outstanding.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When his son went to the hospital. The decision was about to be made to "pull the plug"
