Too little coverage on this big topic
am 20. Dezember 2012
A fascinating topic and I highly appreciate Dr. Alexander's efforts in conveying the heavenly message to the medical world, which is definitely not easy. Yet on the whole, I am quite disappointed about the book. For me, the author has given too much coverage on describing his biological conditions during the coma, with many technical and medical terms which are difficult to comprehend (and also boring) for laymen. What also bothers me is his repetition about his contracted disease being "very rare" among adults and even a precedent in the medical world. It just seems to me that he is "proud" of being the first one having such a disease, which is quite disturbing.
The first few pages of the book about his dangerous experience in skydiving are again too long and boring. I fully understand the author's purpose in mentioning this part - to tell the world that there is something higher which (or who) makes a spontaneous and correct decision in the very last second, instead of our brain. I have no doubt about this point. But his way of conveying this message just doesn't sound convincing. There is something missing in bringing up the two topics into one.
I expected more descriptions about the other realm, his adventure up there and the change of his life after the experience (apart from the fact that he now believes the existence of heaven). Sorry to say that this book could not fulfil my desires.
