Dr. Jeffrey Long, M.D is a physician practicing the medical specialty of radiation oncology and author of “Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences”.
In 1998, I founded the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), and the corresponding website at www.nderf.org. NDERF grew over the years. Over 1500 people who experienced a near-death experience (NDE) have shared and agreed to have their NDEs posted on the NDERF website. The NDERF website has by far the largest publically accessible collection of NDEs in the world. Over the years, NDErs sharing with NDERF became among the greatest teachers I have encountered in my life. I have certainly learned a great deal from Anita’s remarkable NDE.
I have been researching and writing about near-death experiences (NDEs) since 1977. During that time, I have personally interviewed or talked extensively with hundreds of near-death experiencers and have dozens of autobiographical accounts of such persons in my own library. I have also written a number of books on NDEs and scores of articles on the subject. In addition, I have had the pleasure, and indeed the privilege, of spending several hours with the author, Anita Moorjani, of the book under review here. So I think I know something about the subject of NDEs.
