Discover what a close approach to death can teach us about how we live. Dr Sartori is uniquely qualified as author of this book, having conducted one of the most important near-death experience (NDEs) studies ever reported. She has nursed dying patients in an intensive-therapy ward for over twenty years, and her research is scholarly and concise, yet touched with spiritual resonance and easy and delightful to read. Looking beyond the science of NDEs, Dr Sartori shows us through case studies, aneCDotal evidence and documented research that those who have experienced an NDE have much insight to give us on the way we live and can empower us to have more fulfilled and meaningful lives. Just as importantly, her research provides the bedrock for a revolution in the humane and intelligent care of the dying.
