I read this book roughly 15 years ago and just reread it again. Considering that it was copywrited (copywritten?) in 1974, I am amazed at how cutting edge it still seems.

I really find this so very fascinating.

I'd love to hear from anyone else who has read this and be able to discuss this. What did you think?

Deliciously controversial from the man who lived on a boat for a few years, and never used a computer to write his notes, preferring to do everything by hand for a more organic experience. Great book. I came into contact with him through sumo and contacted him for my sumo book research. He was do helpful - gave me a handwritten letter!

The most imressive book i've ever read. Then i lost my book. What a great responsibility, i'm still looking for it but can't find any library have it around here... I should say that again; "READ IT!"
This thought-provoking book gives accounts of different near-death experiences. It greatly inspired me to write my second novel.

One of the loveliest accounts that will stay with me forever is the near-death experience of a farmer who, before he was resuscitated, saw his bed surrounded by all his formerly deceased dogs - expectantly wagging their tails, waiting for him. :)

Non-fiction book concerning all aspects of death from the biological to the anthropological. Sounds grim but is absolutely fascinating.
