Is death really the end? Find out what science, and the firsthand experiences of those who nearly died, tell us about what might lie beyond.

Do we each have a soul or spiritual essence that will journey on once the body has turned to dust? Will death appear as oblivion or a nightmare? In recent decades--thanks to sophisticated resuscitation techniques--more people have returned from temporary death to reveal what they saw and felt. Doctors have noted that these descriptions of near-death experiences (NDE) were remarkably consistent, even though the people had very little in common. All spoke of a sense of peace, of travelling through a tunnel towards light, of seeing cities of light, and hearing celestial music. Some even overheard conversations that wouldn't normally have been possible. Near-Death Experiences examines in detail a wide range of NDE case studies, encompassing children and adults, skeptics and strong believers, those who expected to die and some caught in sudden accidents. This thoughtful analysis offers a glimmering of what may lie in store for us.
