AFTER: A SKEPTICAL SCIENTIST’S JOURNEY TO UNDERSTAND LIFE, DEATH, AND BEYOND
The world’s leading expert on near-death experiences reveals his journey through 40 years of pioneering research, discovering evidence that led him to rethink his understanding of the nature of death, life, and the continuity of consciousness. For all of us facing possible illness and eventual death—and anyone who wonders about the nature of life, our final fate, and the meaning of it all—this book reveals conclusions from over four decades of scientific research. Dr. Greyson provides the results of his systematic study as well as dramatic first-person accounts from his patients and research subjects who have had profound and unexplained “near-death experiences”—spiritual experiences on the border between life and death. He explores not only the astounding features of the near-death experiences themselves but also the profound effects of these experiences on others and the implications for how we view our world and our place in the universe. Dr. Greyson also reveals the effects of these experiences on himself personally, as a scientist and physician. This book has the potential to transform lives in the tradition of Raymond Moody’s groundbreaking Life After Life that has sold more than 13 million copies since its publication 45 years ago. After offers a dramatic story of discovery by an initially skeptical doctor on the vital role of so-called “spiritual” experience in understanding the very nature of our material reality.
