Life After Life is a report based on a qualitative study in which the author, Raymond Moody, interviewed 150 people who had near-death experiences (NDEs). The author, in this book, has presented a combined opinion of these people about what it is like to die. The author found that their testimonies and descriptions of 'death' and 'beyond' were very similar. They had an immense feeling of well-being and peace, which included freedom from pain. They felt that they were located outside their physical body. This book may have an effect on the way one views life, death, and the spiritual hereafter. Life After Life will fascinate and infuse confidence in those who have wondered about the after life. More than 13 million copies of Life After Life were sold and were translated into a dozen foreign languages. It became an international bestseller making the subject of NDEs popular and opening the doors for other studies. Raymond Moody born on June 30, 1944, is a medical doctor and a psychologist. He has gained recognition for writing books about NDEs and life after death. Life After Life is his bestselling book.
