A suspenseful and emotional journey which reveals something we all secretly wish for.
Allow yourself to be taken in by the unimaginable idea of visiting heaven...or is it all in the mind?

Dr. Ethan Lewis's past doesn't allow him the luxury of sleep. He's guided by guilt and heartache, both of which motivated him to perfect the unorthodox treatment for anxiety and depression. But, when his lab assistant, Kyle, pushes the limits of the treatment, he threatens his own life and reveals the drug has unimaginable reach.

Lies, deceit, and a revelation regarding Dr. Lewis's past halt the aggressive trials, but Kyle's new love interest provides the final blow. A rift forms between the two best friends. Kyle's disloyalty begins a cascade of events leading Dr. Lewis to enter The Beyond Experience himself in order to solve a string of missing persons. What he finds inside will destroy his beliefs, and, provides the answer to why his fiance spoke those final haunting words as she died in his arms; "forgive me."

"You're going to feel a chill." The Beyond Experience was, in a word, stunning. To be blunt, I was skeptical about reading this. I'm a cognitive scientist, and most books I read that have something to do with neuroscience and psychology are so far from reality that they are painful to read. Mike, this story was fantastic. The amount of passion and research that went into the characters and their story was quite clear from the get go. Even the setting of the story was intimately detailed. Mike clearly has a marvel of an imagination, and an eye for taking brilliant scientific ideas to the next level, while still remaining as realistic as possible. That is one tall order to follow. The characters were really well written, it was enjoyable to watch them grow and change. The dynamic relationship between Dr. Lewis and Kyle, and their battle between science and religion, was well crafted. There were incredibly brutal struggles some of the characters faced, but I loved the book even more for that. It was easy to grow attached to the characters and really feel for them. The Beyond Experience was captivating. It might be bold to say, but I think this book really has something to offer for everyone--whether you are a scientist, a religious/spiritual person, both, or neither--and that is an extremely difficult variety of people for an author to please. Plus, how gorgeous is that cover?! That'll do Mike, that'll do.
