Despite her academic background, I actually found that the book is written in a very easy and addictive style. It thoroughly describes NDEs and provides an informative read which also includes previous research into NDEs.
I found the examples she wrote about to be amazing and although I have an interest in NDEs, there were many things that I'd never been aware of before.
The conclusions really made me think about the way I live my life.
One thing I particularly did like is the fact that Dr Sartori is not trying to enforce her opinion onto the readers. Instead she provides them with the facts and encourages readers like myself to make up their own mind.
I started reading her extracts in the paper and downloaded the ebook, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it finding it extremely fascinating and thought provoking.
I would like to thank the author, personally, for her conviction and courage in undertaking the research. Bless you, Dr Sartori !
Instead she argues that these experiences often have very real relevance to the experient, and so should be acknowledged and witnessed as important by those in the medical community who have contact with the experient, rather then being ignored, or worse sometimes trivialized.
Dr Sartori re-presents the results of her 5 year clinical study into the NDE's of hospitalized intensive care patients in a more condensed format. Somewhat dry in presentation, it is interspersed with examples of new recalled experiences that attempt to lighten the writing style. Indeed, her book sometimes reads more like an academic text book, and perhaps in the end of the day, her book probably 'is' targeted at the medical professional.
She challenges the medical community (indeed our whole western society) to consider how they deal with the patients (and relations) of those within their care who are dying - particularly the elderly - so that they are not robbed of the right to have their own NDE, and that they die as dignified, peaceful, and comfortable a death as possible - surrounded by family and friends where practical.
Dr Sartori suggests that we 'rethink' how we deal with death and the process of dying, both personally, and in society. That exposing death and the dying process as an important part of living, might allow us to live our lives more fully.
