His unwavering belief in evidence-based medicine fuelled a career in the top medical institutions of the world. But all this was set to change. One morning in 2008 he fell into a coma after suffering a rare form of bacterial meningitis. Scans of his brain revealed massive damage. Death was deemed the most likely outcome. As his family prepared themselves for the worst, something miraculous happened. Dr Alexander's brain went from near total inactivity to awakening. He made a full recovery but he was never the same. He woke certain of the infinite reach of the soul, he was certain of a life beyond death. In this astonishing book, Dr Alexander shares his experience, pieced together from the notes he made as soon as he was able to write again. Unlike other accounts of near-death experiences, he is able to explain in depth why his brain was incapable of fabricating the journey he experienced. His story is one of profound beauty and inspiration.Hide synopsis

Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Dr. Alexander knew that NDEs feel real but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, Dr. Alexander's own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion--and in essence makes us human--shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Dr. Alexander's eyes popped open. He had come back. Dr. Alexander's recovery is a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Dr. Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself. Dr. Alexander's story is not a fantasy. Before he underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. Today Dr. Alexander is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition. This story would be remarkable no matter who it happened to. That it happened to Dr. Alexander makes it revolutionary. No scientist or person of faith will be able to ignore it. This is even truer of this new edition, in which Dr. Alexander expands upon the lessons he learned from his experience, adding new insights and guidance for a world more in need of them than ever. Reading this book will change your life.Hide

For those who like to assure themselves that there is an afterlife by reading the near death experiences of others, this is a book with a slightly different slant. Most of the narratives we read include conversations with loved ones and descriptions of other beings. This book is written from a very left brain viewpoint as well as being told by an obviously intelligent, scientific narrator. He does not include warm and fuzzy images, but by relating his story in concrete descriptions without a lot of emotion, it is even more believable to us that he is telling the absolute truth as he experienced it. The structure of the book is a bit choppy, and this person is no romantic author, but he does provide an important perspective for us: the more we learn about vibrations, microscopic particles,and so forth, the more plausible it is that we are existing on only one of many wavelengths, and therefore the more believable it is that we can also experience life on other planes after we have left this one. The book is also refreshingly free of any dogmatic religion, and this is advantageous for agnostics, atheists, and all the rest of the viewpoints in today's world.
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT STORY TOLD ABOUT NDE BY A MAN OF SCIENCE WHO UNDERSTANDS THE PHYSICAL SIDE OF COMA BUT NEVER EXPERIENCED THE SUBCONSCIOUS ENENTS WHICH TEST AND ULTIMATELY AWAKEN HIM TO REVEAL "THE OTHER SIDE".
