I've read a lot of these books - having to do with NDEs and I think this one is as close to the mark as it gets. As a previous poster mentioned, if you've had a similar experience you can relate. My experience was similar and yet very different. But I recognized truth in the pages of this one. If you're interested in this kind of thing, you'll enjoy this book.
I enjoyed reading about this respected neurosurgeon's near death experience while he was in a coma for almost a week.
He discovered the oneness of all life and the illusion or "dream" of separate beings, and he encourages meditation to increase awareness of our true nature, which leads to heavenwhich is remembering wholeness.
I also enjoyed the portions where Dr. Alexander tries to illustrate the fact that spirituality and science are most definitely not mutually exclusive.
Now, of course, this isn't a book for everyone. Skeptics should simply skip it rather than read it just to massage their own egos with harsh criticism.

The most medically thorough description of Near Death Experience I have ever read.
