Expert Sam Parnia writes that both in Religion and Culture there are common aspects when dealing with the near-death .

Expert Sam Parnia writes that both in Religion and Culture there are common aspects when dealing with the near-death experience; it’s (1) an extracorporeal experience; (2) may imply contact with ancestors or diseased ones, (3) with light and peace experiences and (4) there are distinct frontiers between the dead and the living ones. The parts of the book - which are disappointingly rare for a work titled What Happens When We Die - devoted to what actually happens to the human body and the brain during cardiac arrest are lucid and interesting. Had most of the book been written in this mode, I suspect it would have been quite good.

Dr. Parnia's experiments demonstrate that an individual's consciousness travels outside of their body when they're unconscious, and that it does continue to exist even when the brain is dead. Written in a scientific, balanced, and engaging style, this book is powerful and compulsive reading.

Dr Sam Parnia works everyday in hospital emergency departments.

Parnia, Sam. Publication date. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Near-death experiences from antiquity to the present day - Setting up the Southampton study - What is it like to die? - - The scientific paradox - Understanding the mind, brain, and consciousness - The ingredients of life - Is it real? - - The horizon - Implications for the future.

Sam Parnia wrote a book without an ending. Dr. Parnia raises thought-provoking questions about the nature of consciousness and is to be commended for trying to tackle the biggest problem facing us all-death. So we are left with a book that has no ending (but an intriguing beginning) that I suspect was written to raise money for further studies.

Sam Parnia's work as an emergency doctor, dealing with death every day, led him to become enthralled by the state of the human mind at the end of life. His research explores what happens to our sense of consciousness and mind at the end of life.

As one familiar with much of the referenced science (including the physics, chemistry, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology described in this book), much of the book was very slow, repetitive, and uninteresting. It is written for an audience that is not scientifically trained, and does a thorough job of explaining relevant theoretical and practical issues in a highly accessible way. If you are already informed in these areas, here is the relevant take home message:

The brain-consciousness connection is still an open scientific question (if you don't believe that this book is worth at least skimming for the evidence he presents in that regard). Study of NDEs is a likely candidate for establishing more facts about this relationship. Large enough studies haven't been funded to establish certain relevant facts about NDEs. Studies are underway, but not finished yet, and won't be for a few years, even if enough funding continues to grow.

There are interesting side points along the way about bias, scientific inquiry, the level of proof required for statistical certainty and how the studies can address that, and what a well designed study will or won't prove. These things have been carefully thought out, but could have been summarized in a long scientific journal article (but that wasn't the intended audience).

Sam Parnia wrote a book without an ending. That is because he was unable to complete his research due to a lack of funding into near-death experiences (NDEs). The reason was simple--there is prejudice in the research community over the funding of projects of this type. Dr. Parnia raises thought-provoking questions about the nature of consciousness and is to be commended for trying to tackle the biggest problem facing us all--death. So we are left with a book that has no ending (but an intriguing beginning) that I suspect was written to raise money for further studies. The biggest problem the book raises is how people can have lucid thoughts (NDEs) during cardiac arrest when there is no blood flow and no electrical activity in the brain.

Dr. Parnia would benefit from reading Rick Strassman's book, "DMT: The Spirit Molecule," and noting that NDEs share some of the features encountered in other altered states induced by stress, temporal lobe epilepsy, and powerful entheogenic substances. (Dr. Parnia mistakenly glosses over these areas in his book.) Dr. Strassman brought up a viable link between these experiences and reports of UFO abductions suggesting a comparable process within the mind. A curious similarity in UFO abduction reports, shamanic (religious) experiences induced by physical stress or entheogens, and NDEs is reports of subjects' bodies being tied by a cord or beam of light to their "selves" in the heavens (a phenomenon similar the biblical story of Jacob's ladder). Implications of this type leave people uneasy about the possible examination of religion by science; two areas that merge as easily as oil and water. These links suggest a common source that hopefully will be investigated when barriers to this kind of research are removed and more open-minded, scientific investigators like Dr. Parnia are allowed to do their research.

I have a science education and really enjoyed the research and short stories of those with NDE.

I like What Happens When we Die because it talks openly about a subject that few real medical doctors and scientists are willing to touch. I recommend Parnia to anyone interested in what happens both physically and spiritually when our bodies begin the process of death. Comforting book for those facing death, or the death of a loved one.

Nice to know what to expect when your sand runs out.

If you're interested in near-death experiences, this is a must read. I hadn't read any current information on this subject for quite a while and was presently surprised with the latest data and thinking on this subject.

I've read the book and was not impressed. Although there was great promise in the pretense of this book, the author never actually got around to conducting the 'large study' he talks about concerning NDEs and what happens when a person dies. He has some anecdotal stories to tell, but he never reports on any factual findings. All in all it was disappointing, and the authors writing style was amateurish and not very captivating. I would not recommend this to anyone.
A very great book that was unavailable where I live in Alaska
