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.

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.
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'.
I enjoyed the approach taken in this book to credit the theory of an afterlife and counter critical claims otherwise. Definately leaves me feeling hopeful.
Not a narrated one.
It was good.
He pretty much sounded like a male version of Siri reading a book.
The book itself was good.
I think that I would have enjoyed the book more if I just read it myself. The narrator had no emotion in his voice, no inflection...it reminded me of the cost accounting class in which I fell asleep in college. The content of the book was great, though.
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.
yes the book was very good. but I struggled with the narrator. Really struggled!!!!!!
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.
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.
best evidence, wrong narrator.
Say something about yourself!
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.
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.
