If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to comeback to life? Investigative journalist Judy Bachrach has collectedaccounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memoriesof what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing.Clinical death—the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activityceases—is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors arenow beginning to concede. Hundreds of thousands of fascinating post-deathexperiences have been documented, and for many who have died and returned, lifeis forever changed. These days, an increasing number of scientific researchersare turning their studies to people who have experienced what the author callsdeath travels—putting stock and credence in the sights, encounters, andexciting experiences reported by those who return from the dead. Throughinterviews with scores of these “death travelers,” and with physicians, nurses,and scientists unraveling the mysteries of the afterlife, Bachrach redefinesthe meaning of both life and death.
