When I initially began reading this book, I was disappointed because I had hoped the author would spend more time recounting his experiences in heaven. (Only a couple of pages are devoted to his description of dying.) I found the middle of the book to be quite boring, and I took a long time to read it and almost didn't finish it for this reason. However, the book really picked up at the end. Don's stories about his recovery, though painful and depressing, were effective at reminding me of all of the things that I tend to take for granted in my daily life. I also really enjoyed reading about how Don turned other people's lives around by sharing his experiences and insights. I recommend this book to anyone who has recently lost a loved one, or who is in the process of recovering from serious injuries. However, I don't recommend this book to someone who is closeminded in the sense that they might become offended by the Christian religious perpective. In some ways, this book reminded me of "Tuesdays With Morrie." If you enjoyed reading "Tuesdays With Morrie," you will probably enjoy this book as well.

Although Dan Piper's heaven experience is beautifully related to the readers in detail, most of the book is to relate his experiences for rehab and how his faith brought him the experiences yet to come. There is a lot written on his depression during rehab, but it all makes sense why that part of his recovery was indeed part of his recovery. It makes sense when you complete the entire book. It can be inspirational to someone or just really bring faith in God back to someone who needs it most now.

Wow. This book recounts what happened to Don Piper while he was "dead" for 90 minutes after grave injury in an auto accident. He vividly recalls, in detail, what he experienced during the hour-and-a-half rescuers worked to resuscitate him. His is truly a glimpse of heaven, told with an incredible eye for detail.

This is probably one of my all time favorite books. It is essentially a beautiful biographical telling of one man's faith and his miraculous return from heaven after he was pronounced dead at the scene of a horrible car accident. I believe this is a must read for all Christians.

The book was an interesting story of one man's experience with heaven, but I really wish it spent more time on that subject. The majority of the book chronicled his recovery process, and I think he did a great job of describing his emotions during the painful processes. I can see how this book would be a great spiritual confirmation or even a story of hope for others, but . . . let's just put it this way: I don't recommend this book for anyone who is a skeptic or cynic when it comes to religion.

Absolutely inspiring, it's so good to know that God's word is true. He has a plan for each trial we go through and he certainly showed He is still alive and at work in our lives even when we don't know it.

I love this book! While the description of Don's experience in heaven is brief, it is a wonderful reference for him (and me) as he recounts his lengthy, grueling, painful journey through recovery over the next couple of years (he will never recover completely). As someone who has experienced a lifetime of chronic pain, I found Don's testimony particularly relevant for my own experience. The spiritual message of his book is that our earthly lives are intentional: God has a plan for our lives, no matter what twists and turns life may take. Life here is temporary, and the promise of heaven for the believer makes this life not just tolerable but joyful and meaningful even in the midst of pain and suffering. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is suffering or has suffered a major injury, recovery, surgery or long term illness. Very inspirational!

I agree with another person, this book I thought was going to more about a description of heaven. The book was hard to read at times, because of all the suffering he did to recover. It is a good read to have the perspective of not taking your life for granted and living it well.
