In these lively and often witty essays, Dr. Kenneth Ring, best known for his pioneering work on near-death experiences, reveals his talents as a Kenny-come-lately humorist and would-be man of letters. Now in his mid-80s, this book shows he has lost none of his verve for writing on a range of subjects as diverse as they are entertaining.
But quite apart from his gift for the droll phrase, the reader will find that Ring also touches on and often goes into depth on serious topics, such as dealing with the COVID pandemic, the right-to-die movement, and the epidemic of loneliness. He also spends some time describing how he became interested in near-death experiences, his explorations with psychedelic drugs, and his one extraordinary and mind-blowing reading from a medium. A lifelong lover of classical music, Reflections in a Glass Eye contains three sparkling and hilarious essays on composers, musicians, and their patrons. The book ends with some touching and moving accounts of Ring's remarkable love life, which will give the reader a sense of how rich and wondrous has been the life of the author.
You are in for a treat with this book. Now read it. Available on Amazon.com

I met Claudia Carawan during one of my speaking appearances in Virginia, and I was so struck by her gifted, soulful singing voice and the lyrics she writes. After reading my book, My Beloved, she was so inspired by it that she wrote a song based on my book called, "More Than You Know." I am wholeheartedly recommending you visit her website to learn more about her and where you can order her CD's. Her music is so inspiring to listen to that I will soon wear out my copies of her CD's from constant use. Please check her out. ww.claudiacarawan.com
What happened to Dr. Alexander while he was in a coma is probably the most astonishing NDE ever told. He believes it is his duty, his calling, to tell people about what his experience revealed to him - that the death of the body and the brain are not the end of consciousness.
Dr. Alexander was very kind to mention me in his acknowledgment section in his book.

Kenneth Ring, PhD, is an internationally recognized authority on the subject of NDEs. He is the co-founder of The International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS), researcher, and author.
I am highlighting one of his books, Lessons From the Light which reveals the core wisdom of the NDE. Dr. Ring suggests that learning about the NDE has similar positive effects to those reported by people who actually have had NDEs.
I highly recommend all his books!
Larry Dossey, M.D., is the NY Times bestselling author of Healing Words and has written many fine books.
In this book, Dr. Dossey explores the ultimate argument for the nonlocality of consciousness which means that minds, are nonlocal with respect to space and time. In some sense, all minds come together to form a single mind. A very compelling read.

Hello From Heaven! A New Field of Research Confirms that Life and Love are Eternal was written by Bill Guggenheim and his ex-wife Judy Guggenheim. Their book documents the study of after-death-communication experiences (ADC's), a term they coined.
Its powerful messages of love offer comfort, hope, and spiritual inspiration to all readers.
Josie invited me to contribute one of my own after death communication experiences that is also described in my book, Hear His Voice. I also wrote a chapter in Josie's book called "Awakening To Our Inherent True Nature." If you want to read a very good book that will challenge your assumptions about death, it will give you the proof that you never thought existed. I highly recommend Visits From Heaven by Josie Varga.

PMH Atwater is one of the world's most recognized near-death experience researchers. She has spent over four decades of listening and carefully noting what nearly 4,000 child and adult experiencers of near-death states shared - what they saw, heard, felt, and suddenly, absolutely knew. Dying to Know You embraces the collective voice, the sum of the many millions of people worldwide who describe their dying and their coming back to physical life. They describe a God that in ways is beyond description, a Source, an all-encompassing Oneness. Perhaps it makes sense that so many who share the same experiences are getting to the core of the world's longing for the truth about God.
Dying To Know You will shake your beliefs about humanity's relationship to the nature of God and the universe in which we live. Available on Amazon.com
