About Glimpsing Heaven
• Paperback: 256 pages
• Publisher: National Geographic (September 2, 2014)
If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to come back to life? Many people alive today have experienced clinical death—a heart that has stopped beating, brain activity that has flat lined—and returned to life with lucid, vivid memories of what occurred while they were dead. Judy Bachrach, investigative journalist and contributing editor at Vanity Fair, presents their astonishing stories here, giving us a rare glimpse of life after death. She consulted the world’s leading scientific and medical experts on death experience to explore whether the science supports the stories—and now, in Glimpsing Heaven, her surprising discovery puts death in a whole new light.
