I have yet to get to that part of the book that the author indicates, in interviews, describes the scientific explanation of why he now believes in the "Proof of Heaven."

What I've read so far is thru the middle of his brain dead experience and the journey he traveled. It's interesting, he's very vivid and almost overly expressive. Even though I am a believer, I have yet to make up my mind on what I think about his experience.

It is an interesting read so far.

And please ...no spoilers; Thanks!

Great book. Read it many years ago. Got so into it I went to the Library and tried to read "The Tibetan Book Of The Dead" which was referenced in the book.

Fascinating reading !

He's certainly well educated..........U.N.C. at Chapel Hill, Duke University Medical School, Harvard, etc., etc.........if my memory is right.

The good doctor admits he was a scientist through and through..........and we all know how scientists feel about "the unknown".........so I can't wait to read the book.
I've always enjoyed the personality of people who have "open minds" on any subject and are NOT rigid in their beliefs in general.

We had other things to do today, but I will get back to the book tomorrow.
Eben Alexander will be appearing locally in April to discuss his book.
