    1. Is there an art to dying? What can we do to achieve a good death? We have few special rituals to prepare for death, or to mark it and we often fail to help the dying prepare for death.I don’t want anyone reading this review to think that I have a morbid slant on life. My only excuse is that since I lost a loved one two years ago, I have become philosophically involved in trying to find a meaning between our life on earth and death and whether there is anything afterwards.

    2. This book is one of the best books you will ever read, because it will forever alter your view of death if it is one of fear, and it will reinforce it if it is positive. I truly believe that our world would be a different place if everyone took the time to read this book. People would spend more time on love and learning because they wouldn't be so scared that their time is "running out." This book is filled with numerous personal accounts of people who have communicated with the dead and dying, [...]

    3. Arguably one of the most comprehensive book on the subject.

It is c [...]

    4. Excellent. Wonderful personal experiences! My mother shared with my sisters & me a wonderful awareness of beings & spoke with them the day before she passed away.

    5. This book has wonderful personal experiences and I loved reading them. I did not like how the author kept analyzing every story, that got a little boring. But overall, it was a good read.
