My original intention was to write a brief overview for people who are interested in this topic, but who don’t have the time to deal with the extensive literature. Unfortunately, it have become some long pages for me now too. If you have time you can read one of the following books:
Doctor Jeffrey Long: Evidence of the Afterlive. The Science of near-death experience 2010 HarperOne, HarperCollins Publishers, NY, USA
Kenneth Ring and Sharon Cooper: Mindsight: Near-death and out-of-body experiences in the blind. Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, William James Center for Consciousness Studies. 2008 iUniverse
PIM van Lommel: Consciousness Beyond Life, The Science of the Near-Death Experience 2011
