A Harvard-trained neurosurgeon's minute-by-minute account of his own near-death experience - and what he discovered in the heavenly realm beyond life.
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 functioned at all. That left only one conclusion: that we are conscious in spite of our brains - that, in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence.
The evidence supporting Dr. Alexander's experience transformed him into a believer in God's unconditional love and brought reconciliation to his family - and will upend our ideas about human consciousness and spirituality.

"Dr. Eben Alexander's near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon. In my opinion, Dr Alexander is living proof of an afterlife." (Raymond Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life Beyond Life)
"Eben Alexander brings a unique perspective to the sacred world combining a glorious, personal vision of spiritual consciousness with patient, insightful scientific inquiry. Proof of Heaven is a compelling story of what may lie ahead for all of us in the life beyond this one. We have nothing to fear." (Allan J. Hamilton, MD, FACS, author of The Scalpel and the Soul and Zen Mind, Zen Horse)
"I can highly recommend this important book that has the potential to break many scientific taboos." (Dr. Pim van Lommel, cardiologist, author of Consciousness Beyond Life: The Science of the Near-Death Experience)
Too see and hear of the conversion of this talented, experienced scientist and his detailed description of his experience. He will have an uphill task to convince other medical men of its validity.
Intelligent reader, pleasant voice, earnest performance
I have both, and it's great to hear the author's voice change when he's describing something particularly meaningful for him.
His authenticity and his objective presentation of data
but you must experience this book for yourself and make up your own mind. The story and background alone are deserving of a read. I found it fascinating.
I am a registered nurse and own an independent clinical research site in Ozark, AL. I love Audible! Also writing short novels as hobby.
It's OK............expected it to be better............saw the author's interveiw on FOX, but a little disappointed.
Experience was interesting...........his survival was a miracle.........God must have had reasons to bring him back.
Maybe a movie
A little academic...........
"I listen to learn"!
I always appreciate the reading by the author so thats a plus. Not exactly what i expected but it was a good book. i got lost in it alittle but i looked at a few of his interviews and then it all made sense. Pretty good read if this subject interests you, I didn't return it.
Award Winning artist and muse coaching artistic and creative minded people to develop viable business with my Empathic and medium ship skill
This book touches your heart in many ways. I laughed but I cried more. The author and reader of this book works VERY WELL. The story gets so difficult for him to tell you can tell he is having a very rough go at writing and reading about meeting his biological parents. He is barely makes it without tears, just at that part, you can hear it In his voice. I had to stop the book and allow my own compassion to be expressed so I could continue listening.
This is one of the best autobiographies about the NDE experience because it is written by a scientist formally a non believer.
I recommend this book with the wholeness of my soul. I will listen to this book over and over. It is that good.
Another book with great appeal is "Does the Soul Survive?" by Rabbi Eli Kaplan Spitz.
You will not regret either purchase.
details of brain functions or maybe it should be put in more layman terms.
no, not really
maybe to get details i missed.... Great to hear experience in authors own voice!
That it was what the author experienced.
bittersweet since i've lost a close loved one. Good to know where they might be.
The perfect coma.
A neurosurgeon presents a convincing case for consciousness in the afterlife.
No, but well written and a good audio performance. I couldn't stop listening.
A brain expert turned guinea pig makes for a fascinating and highly credible witness.
This is a story that is extremly hard to refute.
It was interesting to hear his point of view as a doctor.
Just one more proof of the existance of God and heaven.
