From the cover: Near-death experiences fascinate because they seem to provide a glimpse of what lies beyond life. They are of interest to scientists because they seem so often to follow a pattern, which implies that they are part of a shared human experience, underpinned by brain processes common to everyone. But are they merely the product of a dying brain? Do they teach us anything about the after-life? Or at the very least do they show us anything about what death and dying will probably be like?
Dr Peter Fenwick, a neuropsychiatrist who is Britains leading clinical authority on the near-death experience and President of The International Association for Near-Death Studies in the UK, has received hundreds of letters from people of all ages and in all walks of life. But virtually all of them have two things in common a certainty that what they experienced was real and a total freedom from that most basic of human fears, the fear of death.
In this compelling book which contains many first-hand accounts, Dr Fenwick analyses over 300 near-death experiences to see how far science can provide an answer to the puzzle they present, and what we can learn from them when science can take us no further.
