Leslie Says… Read This Book by Dr. Eben Alexander

Proof of Heaven by Dr. Eben Alexander
Proof of Heaven
by Dr. Eben Alexander

Dr. Eben Alexander is a man of science – a Harvard educated, well-respected neurosurgeon; this man is first and foremost a believer in facts, scientific research and what can be seen and proven empirically. Dr. Alexander’s life was turned upside down in 2008, when he contracted a rare form of meningitis that left him in a coma for a week. During this time, his brain was effectively “shut down” by the disease, with no activity in his neocortex. While his family stood watch by his hospital bed, his life hanging by a thread, Dr. Alexander was on a journey that changed his life forever.

No matter your beliefs about what happens to us after we die, this book will fascinate you. I was riveted by Dr. Alexander’s descriptions of his travels through the afterlife. The perspective of a physician is quite different than other books written about near death experiences, mainly because he openly admits his former, mostly agnostic, beliefs, and describes his condescending responses to former patients who shared their own near death experiences. The more I read, the more I found myself liking this man; he shares a lot about his personal life and deep love for his family. Dr. Alexander is obviously not a professional writer, but, all in all, he did a wonderful job relating his amazing experience.
