About the Book

'Brothers in the Light' is a remarkable book about near-death experiences and related phenomena. The result of years of diligent research, it reveals little-known facts about life and death that are at times more fascinating than science fiction. How does it really feel to float out of your body? To die and return to life? What are the sure signs that an 'unclean spirit' possesses someone you know? What is the significance of a post-mortem visitation? These are only a few of the questions answered by this book.

'Brothers in the Light' breaks new ground in our understanding of near-death experiences and related phenomena. After reading it, you will know not only how to determine if someone you know has had a near-death experience, but you will also know what kind it was, using a new comprehensive system of categorization. Through exhaustive research, 'Brothers in the Light' also dismantles the myth that near-death experiences are nearly always positive. There's nothing farther from the truth. There are at least as many Hellish as Heavenly ones.

'Brothers in the Light' is at once amazing and enlightening, inspiring and educational, and guaranteed to be a riveting source of discoveries for experts and laymen, for newcomers and veterans. Finally, this book is required reading for all seeking to broaden their knowledge of this little-studied but very important area of human existence. An area in which superficial differences lose their significance as obstacles and we are all drawn together as brothers in the light.
