Yes, if they are Christian. I love the author and his style. I listen to his podcasts regularly. he makes Christianity, well, not so "offensive" as I remember it from childhood. He makes it OK and understandable. Now, if I could just get past my doubts I have about the translation of the Bible.
And, if they would remove the commercials in between the chapters read by the lady with the sickening voice, it would be far better!
Yes. I like his style. He is down to earth and humorous.
His delivery is pretty darn awesome. He sounds like the kind of guy you's want to have a beer with - to be your neighbor - to be your friend.
No - it is not a story.
LOSE THE DARN COMMERCIALS IN BETWEEN THE CHAPTERS! The sappy voice of the lady that reads these makes me want to vomit.
It was WAY too technical. The facts were great - and that was why I ordered the book (based on someone's review)...but, geeeeez, the guy yammers on and on and on and on about math dreck for 30 minutes at a shot. It is as if his publisher wanted him to just fill pages with anything to make the book longer.
Not sure what this means - next book? Not sure...
There was no characters in this book.
Some of the facts were cool.
Don't use your credits to get this book. It sounds much more fun than it actually is. I was soooo bored with it...
Yes. And again and again. And again.
When she (the author) described the typical sociopath and listed who these poele could be, and described the head of our Condo Trustee Board 100% - and then said, this person could be the head of your condo Trustee Board. YIKES!!
Never heard any others...
No - it is too heavy of a topic. And it hits WAY too close to home for me. I was married to a diagnosed sociopath, my father was one, and the head of condo association is one. That man had single-handedly ruined the lives of SO MANY people in our condo complex...yet people think he is so "charming." That is the key word used to describe most sociopaths...or so I learned in this book. They are more deceptive than you think. And, 1 in 25 people fall into this category...yikes.
A MUST read for every adult. I can't emphasize this enough.
If more people read this book, they would know what to look for and question the actions of people that seem just a bit "off." If more people did this - so many other people would be better off and lead better lives because of that. Had someone questioned my father's actions, perhaps I wouldn't have been sexually abused by him for 14 years....every one thought he was sooo "charming."

Yes. It is much better to hear the author read it the way he MEANT it to be read. And his Southern accent was charming.
Tom Piper's book is very good - and there another about a little boy that had an NDE - Colton Burpo - it used to be on Audible but is no longer there, sadly.
Eban himself - Hearing his words in his own voice (and charming southern accent) helps the reader "be there" with him.
"a medical journey there...and back!!"
The acknowledgements at the end were WAAAAAAAY too long. Not meant to be read out loud, in my opinion.Best book on the subject that I have read. Tom Piper's book is great, as is Colton Burpo's story written by his mom and dad - it was in my library but is no longer there for some reason - (Heaven is For Real).
Looking forward to reading additional, more current science-based books on the topic.
