Really interesting second book from Eben A ... what I really loved the most was the copious, abundant book list of both in and out of print mysticism titles assembled by both authors. I've been slowly reading through these books and learning quite a lot! ( )

Very interesting book. It's a follow up to his book The Map of Heaven. As I have a good friend whose mother passed away in 2013 and had a VERY similar experience of death as shown in this book, I truly believe in the afterlife. Can't wait to discuss it at book club. ( )

This is a wonderful follow up for Dr. Alexander's book 'Proof of Heaven'. He draws on the wisdom of Greek philosophers on through modern day medical personnel. He uses his personal experiences as well as letters from people who were moved to share their own experiences after reading "Proof of Heaven. The book is well written and organized.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book is interesting. Not necessarily in the good way. I agree with most of what the author is saying, but the way he says it... He tends to take quotes or scientific facts, tells us about them, and then come up with a therefore that has little to do with the source. One example would be in his introduction when he basically says that gold was important to alchemists for its physical properties, therefore, we are both part of heaven and earth. I have nothing against either statement, I just can't see how he makes the jump in logic.

Likewise, he promises an appendix on how to reach these upper planes of understanding through meditation, but only writes about the importance of sound, without any specifics as to what sound works best.

I love the subject and the book has some very interesting examples and imagery, but it just doesn't mesh. ( )
