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.

    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "Sorry, but performance ruined it for me"
    What did you like best about Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences? What did you like least?

    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!


    Would you recommend Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences to your friends? Why or why not?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    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!


    Did Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences inspire you to do anything?

    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.

    "Good science well presented"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences to be better than the print version?

    Probably not because the author didn't read the work.


    What other book might you compare Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences to and why?

    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.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Bob Dunsworth?

    Sure, but I find him too generic with a lack of character or personality.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Audio books should be read by their authors.

    "Fantastic compilation science and stories"
    If you could sum up Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences in three words, what would they be?

    An excellent compilation of a great number of NDE stories about transformtive encounters and the resulting life changes engndered.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author....as first person.


    Have you listened to any of Bob Dunsworth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Quite sufficient...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Changed by the Light


    Any additional comments?

    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".

    "Fascinating, well-researched study"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All the accounts of out-of-body and near-death experiences.


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

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This is a very compelling study. He even speaks to the skeptics and explains why their explanations don't hold up.
