After: A Doctor Explores What Near-Death Experiences Reveal about Life and Beyond
Dr. Bruce Greyson, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry & Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia, began his career wanting to understanding the human brain and what it was that made people tick. His goal was always to help those who needed help, and he found a way to do so which spawned what became known as NDEs, or “near death experiences.” Originally working and learning of these NDEs with Dr. Raymond Moody, bestselling author of Life After Life, he has spent the last forty years collecting these unique stories from people who apparently died for a little while and then were brought back to life.
Greyson is not religious and approaches the phenomena of NDEs from a scientific perspective, categorizing and grouping them together to try to understand their commonalities. What’s incredible is that cases of NDEs go back to ancient times, and Greyson shares some of these old stories along with a plethora of newer ones he has collected throughout his career. Using what evidence he can, he provides a new perspective on NDEs and discusses possible theories of what death might actually be, and whether there could be anything after.
