This was a great book opening up my eyes to what happens after death. The author who is a neurosurgeon became very ill with a very rare, life threatening disease and spent 7 days in a coma. He describes his journey to the afterlife and how it contradicts everything he knew about science. It is a spectacular book that made me feel so much better about death and those I loved that have passed. Some of the chapters and pages get a little too "scientific" and are a little hard to follow, but overall a very good book!
