Yes, definitely! Although only purchasing this audio book this last week, I have completed it and just about to listen to it again. I have purchased this book as a gift for family and friends.
Although this book is ultimately about Dr Alexander's astounding near-death experience (NDE), I feel that his journey prior and post his NDE is at times gut-wrenching (I cannot give away too much here). Therefore it is difficult to compare this book with say "Dying to be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing" by Anita Moorjani, being the only other book I have read on the subject matter. In my opinion, Anita's book introduces the reader to the idea that "all is well in the universe and live your life fearlessly". Dr Alexander a renowned academic neurosurgeon, who previous to his own account was a sceptic of the phenomenon of near-death experiences, raises the level considerably by giving us substantial medical PROOF and elaborates in detail on the concepts of "Truth" and "consciousness". This very moving book is very well written and is a must read.
Dr Eben Alexander, who incidentally is a brilliant narrator - you will not be disappointed here.
Surprisingly I did. One night, I was so overcome with emotion that I had to take a break from reading. Keep a box of tissues handy.
As a loving and devoted mother of a precious three year old special needs child (both medical and developmental), I gravitated toward this book seeking hope and inspiration to quell the insidious sense of abandonment I have felt from family, friends and moreover God on this seemingly lonely and long journey. Unexpectedly, this book has delivered on many fronts, but particularly a message Dr Alexander received as he travelled through heaven: "You are loved and cherished, dearly, forever"; "You have nothing to fear"; "There is nothing you can do wrong."
Absolutely! If you like to know the how's and the why's, and I guess moreover, what you can do strategically in dealing with certain personality types (i.e. manipulative in nature), then this book is worth a listen.
The author - what a brilliant mind!
Wonderful narrator - adds to the seriousness of dealing with covertly aggressive people.
Could easily meditate/listen to these verses daily.
The prayers were (for me) fitting and well-timed.
No, but I certainly will!
I felt that the background music was tasteful and appropriate.
Big thumbs up!!
