In hospital Dr Sam Parnia faces life and death issues every day. Through his work in critical care, he became very interested by some of his patients' accounts of the experiences that they had while clinically at the point of death.
He started to collect these stories and read all the latest research on the subject. He then decided to conduct his own experiments, and his work has culminated in this extraordinary book.
Picking up where Raymond Moody's Life After Life left off, this ground-breaking study explores the answer to the ultimate question: what really happens when we die?
