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.

The book was a little scientifically heavy handed given the subject matter, but the subtitle does after all, state that it is a scientific report. I would have liked more detailed examples. That being said, the narrator read it as if it was a news report, even when talking of things of a spiritual or heavenly nature. All the same voice. And as soon as he started mispronouncing words - I counted 6 or 7, the most common being "anesthesia" - used dozens of times, he completely lost credibility for the subject matter... very unprofessional. Is there no one editing or listening to his performance who can clue him in on correct pronunciation of common english words? VERY annoying and distracting!
First of all, I would recommend they read it, not listen to it. And then, I would recommend this as a book to read only after reading some of the other books out about NDE from the people who experienced them. There are many good ones out there to read first. This book's conclusions are the same, but from a different direction.
Narrator should think about the experiences he is talking about and use more reflection and thought in his voice. And if he doesn't know how to pronounce a certain word, look it up first!
I was glad to hear of the research the author did to confirm the afterlife, something I already believe in. I will be interested in visiting his website to learn more.
Probably not because the author didn't read the work.
Not sure, maybe Flipside by Richard Martini in that they both deal with the afterlife. Whereas that book is an amature-sh production, this one is a professional recording.
Sure, but I find him too generic with a lack of character or personality.
Audio books should be read by their authors.
Say something about yourself!
An excellent compilation of a great number of NDE stories about transformtive encounters and the resulting life changes engndered.
The author....as first person.
Changed by the Light
I have read many books on Near death experiences and the resulting effects and transformations on people lives and I oiked this one more than any so far. Why? Because it is comprehendive adn also be cause the authoer has created an excellent website and Facebook community to share NDE experience with multi lingual translations and he adn his rtetam attemtp to create some science around the stories to find the baasic spiritual truths underlining the NDE's. I find this book essential to uderstand the joy and healing that many experience when they leave their body and encounter the higher Spiritual forces which are essentially loving adn forgiving adn without critical judgement...of our " personal shortcomings".
Doubtful. The narrator mispronounced critical words like anesthesia, which is repeated dozens of times throughout the book. He would pronounce it "Anastasia". Another was jubilant, which he pronounced jubUlant.
All the accounts of out-of-body and near-death experiences.
This is a very compelling study. He even speaks to the skeptics and explains why their explanations don't hold up.
I live in a remote area of Alaska. I read and listen to audio books. I am single and live with 3 dogs and 2 cats. I have a horse. I am 73
The author provided many examples of NDE and OBE and gave references to other studies.
There are no characters in this book.
I have listened to it about 1 hr each night.
Yes....It will help you to look at each of our relationships from a slightly different perspective
This is a great book!
I'm curious & creative and I love new ideas about life!
I have lost my fear of death after listening to this book! Now I know that we go to a better place when we die!
I really liked this story and was pretty much glued to the book.
No single one moment.
Nice and clear voice.
Liked all of the stories
Thanks for a good audible book.
It was repetetive, and the reader didn't make clear transitions.
Almost any of the stories of people's experiences - they were all very interesting.
depending on the topic, maybe.
Not really, but if there was a follow up I might be interested in it.
The take-home message of the book was well worth putting up with some repetition and wordiness with regard to the proofs.
The speaker talked way too fast...felt I was speed listening with no time to absorb the info. Book has way to many facts, numbers and percentages...add in speed reading equals low rating. Disappointing as I am really interested in subject matter.
