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.

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.
I enjoyed the audio version, well done and easier to find time for...
I enjoyed the stories of the people who had experiences.
His voice was very good, he kept things moving even during some of the dry statistical material.
When the dead die, the dead get going....
Great book, loved the shared stores and experiences. The book story line did get a bit dry in the statistical data needed to substantiate the gathered facts. Other than those slow parts I enjoyed the book!
Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy
This is not a new subject for me and it continues to fascinate me. While I consider this book a worthwhile listen, I felt it was too statistic-oriented and as a result, it failed to grab or excite me. I do believe the author is very sincere in his belief of an afterlife based on near death experiences around the world (and I certainly hope he is correct); however, I think reciting statistics in this manner is not the way to convince people.
Additionally, the narrator seemed to mispronounce some very common words and give a very dry, boring narration. If you can get past these complaints, the ideas presented are illuminating and optimistic about the possibility of an afterlife.
