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?

This book changed my perception towards life and death. Its not just a book but the research work with alot of real life references. The dots are perfectly connected. It clearly defines that we know very less of cosmos and there are alot of possibilities. This read opened up so many aspects of life which were hidden for long.

Qu'est-ce que la vie ? Où finit-elle et où commence la mort ? Où se situe la frontière qui les sépare ? Cette frontière même existe-t-elle ? À ces questions qui hantent l'homme depuis la nuit des temps, Lyall Watson - un scientifique de réputation internationale - apporte aujourd'hui des réponses. Biologiste, anthropologue, qui s'appuie sur les techniques d'investigation les plus modernes, observe, analyse, éclaire, parmi cent autres, des cas, des phénomènes étonnants. ...more

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. :)

Life after death... Huh? More likely death after life. Read it many moons ago when I was into Lyall Watson.

Lyall Watson looks at the transition from life to death, revealing in the process how we still don't really know where one ends and the other begins. ...more

It's an interesting book, but didn't engage me in the same way as Supernature. ...more

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