Publisher's Summary

The most compelling scientific evidence for life beyond death ever compiled.

Evidence of the Afterlife shares the firsthand accounts of people who have died and lived to tell about it. Through their work at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, radiation oncologist Jeffrey Long and his wife, Jody, have gathered thousands of accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) from all over the world. In addition to sharing the personal narrative of their experiences, visitors to the website are asked to fill out a one hundred-item questionnaire designed to isolate specific elements of the experience and to flag counterfeit accounts.

The website has become the largest NDE research database in the world, containing over 1,600 NDE accounts. The people whose stories are captured in the database span all age groups, races, and religious affiliations and come from all over the world, yet the similarities in their stories are as awe-inspiring as they are revealing. Using this treasure trove of data, Dr. Long explains how medical evidence fails to explain these reports and why there is only one plausible explanation?that people have survived death and traveled to another dimension.

    "Department of Redundancy Department"

    The writing seems very redundant in content and phrasing and becomes hard to listen to, but the tidbits of data are what kept me listening.

    The reader mispronounced a number of words continuously. Anesthesia was pronounced like Anastasia, scintillate was pronounced like skintillate and akin was pronounced like bacon without the 'b'.

    "Interesting listen"

    I was engrossed and interested in the book. Ant then I got to the part where he was discussing how patients under general anesthesia were recalling what the staff did during a code. About the 10th time he pronounced anesthesia "Anastasia" I had to click the off button and stop listening.

    "BORING!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    An endless reciting of stats and studies. I had hoped for stories of NEDs not endless stats. The reader is mechanical and flat, making it all the worse.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bob Dunsworth’s performances?

    no

    "Ingnore the narrator. The info is worth it!"
    Would you listen to Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences again? Why?

    yes the book was very good. but I struggled with the narrator. Really struggled!!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences?

    Depth of the scientific study. This was a great mix of statistical evidence and personal stories. The dedication to this subject by the author is very clear and impactful! Clearly the author knows this subject and has made every effort to cover all angles.


    What didn’t you like about Bob Dunsworth’s performance?

    Bad choice for a book narrator.
    He read the entire book as if the was listing the side effects for a drug commercial. Very disconnected and very unaffected. Likely this narrator was choses in order to sound scientific. The narrator was impartial, but way to unaffected by the material. The caring personality of the author of this book is lost within a dry reading. Also the mispronunciation of very important words is just annoying.


    If you could give Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences a new subtitle, what would it be?


    best evidence, wrong narrator.

    "Based on Science"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book because it was based on Science, not just stories. If you're not a believer, this book probably won't convince you. However, even if you have a small amount of faith in the afterlife, this book will enlighten you to those who have died & come bace, & offer a better understanding of what lies ahead.

    "For those looking for a more scientific analysis"

    While there is no proof of corroboration of all the stories contained in the book, other than assertions made by the person having the experience, the author made a concerted effort to analyze near-death experiences in a scientifically statistical way. He addressed and responded to a multitude of arguments against the likelihood of NDE that have been made by various "experts" over the years. He also intentionally analyzed inconsistencies and addressed them. For those those who like statistical analysis and data, this is a real attempt to analyze the reality of NDEs in a precise and accurate way. It held my interest enough to complete the book.

    "Great content"

    Delivery was robotic. Content is life altering. One of the most complete research so far on death experiences.

    "Focus on research not detailed stories"

    Well designed book that's purpose is to make a scientific argument for the existence of an afterlife. It manages to interweave many short examples of actual NDE experiences that hint at the deeper messages and meaning that these experiences hold.

    The only limitation for me of this book is that in trying to be scientific and objective it looses much of the detail in the actual experiences. This will frustrate people who are looking for in depth analysis of these heavenly experiences, and broader conclusions on what meaning we can draw from these personal accounts.

    "The Truth will set you free"

    Scholarly and well written. Hopeful and inspiring. Truth that will stand the test of time but is just a glimpse of things yet to be revealed.
