What People are Saying About This

Kim Fadiman

Anyone who reads this book will live in a larger universe than they did before. (Kim Fadiman)

Daniel Buxhoventon

You have integrated incredible times of reality with experiences we have yet to understand or replicate. And you have kept your head above the waters. I have never read anything to match it. (Daniel Buxhoventon, brain evolution specialist, affiliated faculty member of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of South Carolina)

Roger Lewin

I think your book is very important. The wealth of your extraordinary experiences will help many. (Roger Lewin, author, Bones of Contention,Origins Reconsidered, and Principles of Human Evolution)

Harvey Priesler

Here is the other side of cancer. I could see, for the first time, the mates and caregivers of my leukemia patients. I had never paid them any attention and so many of them were in worse shape than the patient. I will never again treat only my patients. How could I not have noticed? (Harvey Priesler, former head of oncology, Rush Medical University)

Andrew Greeley

Carole Travis-Henikoff's fascinating story raises questions and mysteries, the kinds of questions that modern science is often afraid to acknowledge and the kinds of mysteries that both scare us and give us hope. It is folly to ignore how many people have experiences like those she describes. (Father Andrew Greeley, priest, sociologist, journalist, and bestselling author)

Sebastian Fetscher

Passings has helped me greatly to understand the incredible and all too often underestimated power of the mind in controlling our mental, psychological, and physical well-being-even and especially in the proximity of death. (Sebastian Fetscher, MD, Frieburg University Medical Center, Germany)

John Allman

An important book ... for all of those who struggle through the experience of death without anything to guide them through the storms of conflicting emotions. (John Allman, neuroscientist, California Institute of Technology)
