I read that book, and found it quite interesting.

I got rid of the books after I read it. I can't remember if it was in his website or his text, but some references to some New Age music that was really profound to him, but sounded so hokey and unlistenable to me. But I liked the book, but I enjoyed listening to some of the audio on him even more. Can't recall the links though.

I'm still unsure my belief on NDE though. I mean, I believe the experience was real for him. But there are just so many 'hokey' experiences out there. Particularly the 'went to hell' ones, etc. In short, there is a lot to apply to some serious 'deciphering skills' to weed out the many stories that seem quite fabricated on this topic.

With Dr. Eben Alexander though, I don't know what purposes he'd have to fabricate the experience though. He also runs an organization on the topic. But, being a neurosurgeon, I'd imagine that if it was all about the money or fame, he'd stick with neurosurgeon than peddling his NDE. So, it's eaiser to conclude that it very well could have been true for him.
