On the Other Side of Life; Exploring the Phenomenon of the Near-Death Experience
Is a probing examination of the NDE that will influence your attitude towards life and death.  Supported by fascinating testimonies of people undergone near death experiences, Evelyn Elsaesser Valarino, an expert in the history of NDE, present this phenomenon in a systematic and analytic way, and discusses the rise of interest over the last 15 years.  The author then sets up a forum with distinguished investigators and scholars in the field of psychology, biology, physics, the neurophysiology, theology, and philosophy.  The result is the first crossed disciplinary scientific research into the theoretical understanding of the NDE.

On the other side of life is an unbiased and thoughtful exchange of ideas and knowledge on the NDE.  Ms. Elsaesser Valarino infuses this book with disarming intellectual honesty so that the reader is not unintentionally prejudiced by the controversy surrounding the NDE phenomenon.  The book will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on anyone willing to open up to this fascinating phenomenon. 

Evelyn Elsaesser Valarino, born in Bern, Switzerland, is head of the law library at University of Geneva.  In search for existentialist answers, she spent many years studying scientific as well as philosophical works.  The author�s discovery of near death experience testimonies prompted her to undertake a rigorous five-year program of research to explore and understand these accounts within the context of different disciplines, culminating in this fascinating book.
