Have you read any good books lately?

I am suggesting it might be interesting to post some reviews of books we’ve enjoyed reading. Many people with an interest in the afterlife are currently reading “Proof of Heaven” by Eben Alexander. I think it is unique in that the person experiencing a prolonged NDE (of a week!) is a neurosurgeon who can say with absolute certainty that the neocortex of his brain was not active during this time. This book review was written by QFAS committee member, Ros Smith.

  1. I have been reading and rereading “Application of Impossible Things” by Natalie Sudman, who had an NDE after being blown up in Iraq. It’s a slim volune and the story she tells is complicated. She is a very down-to-earth woman, with a very unusual story, and her experience links in some ways to Eben Alexander’s experience. Both of them were interviewed by AfterLife tv (they are on youtube) about the experiences in their books, which adds a dimension to the experience of reading them. Natalie’s book is rather dense – she writes well and fluently, but often a single paragraph will contain so many challenging ideas that it takes some time to process it. I haven’t yet read, but intend to buy or borrow “Dying to be me” by Anita Moorjani.

    • Thanks, Fee – I had not heard of “Application of Impossible Things”.
      YouTube has quite an amazing archive of interviews on NDEs now, including one with Dr Penny Sartori, author of The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences, given at Watkins Books in London in January (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkW0ikd8i7U).

  2. I am studying in detail “Astrology and the Art of Healing” by A T Mann currently. He summarises all other significant works at the beginning of the book. It’s the first time i have understood the subject! Have a look if you can.

    • Thanks for this Jenny; I will try to get hold of a copy. At the moment I’m enthralled (that’s not too strong a word!) by Adrian Ross Duncan’s book, ‘Astrology’. I qualified in Astrology Psychology many years ago to use in my counselling and healing work and have been searching for a book that really sythesises these disciplines. While it is a bit heavy – I am finding it worth the effort!

  3. Thanks for posting that, Angela. Here is another book review by Ros of Telephone calls from the dead that members might find interesting. The author, Cal Cooper, spoke at the 2013 QFAS spring conference.
