WARNING: This is not the actual audiobook Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander. Do not buy this audiobook summary and review if you are looking for a full copy of this very interesting and inspirational book or audiobook, which can be found back on the Amazon search page.
Instead, we have already read Proof of Heaven and pulled out all the key insights, events and take-away points to give you a comprehensive chapter-by-chapter summary and review in an engaging and easily digestible format.
In doing so, unfortunately we do not have the space to describe all of the helpful background scenery or events. To get it all, you need to order the full book or audiobook. This concise summary and review works best as an unofficial study guide or companion to listen to alongside this enlightening book or audiobook.
Many are skeptical of so-called "near-death experiences." Given his neuroscience background, Dr. Eben Alexander III was one of those skeptics - until he had an experience of his own. In Proof of Heaven, Alexander details his terrifying but fascinating ride through a life threatening illness and hospitalization.
He drifts in and out of consciousness throughout the book, thus shifting the narrative from chapter-to-chapter. At times he describes the interactions he has with his doctors and family at his hospital bedside, while at other times he articulates the enlightening visions and encounters he experiences in another state of consciousness. By the time he has made it through this near-death experience, he has undergone a thorough transformation from nonbeliever to believer in an afterlife.
It seems this is part of an 'unauthorized' book summaries. At the beginning the book recommends you get the full book first and use this as a guide, which is ridiculous IMO.
The bigger problem is that it is repetitive, shallow and soulless. Everything is repeated twice. A summary of a chapter and then a summary of the summary. There is not enough detail, there is no flow in the story.
Most importantly, there is no emotion. I got the gist of what the full book is about. but now it is ruined for me. I don't have any interest in the full book.
Don't waste your time
