In Erasing Death, Dr. Sam Parnia presents cutting-edge research from the front line of critical care and resuscitation medicine that has enabled modern doctors to routinely reverse death, while also shedding light on the ultimate mystery: what happens to human consciousness during and after death. Parnia reveals how medical discoveries focused on saving lives have also inadvertently raised the possibility that some form of "afterlife" maybe uniquely ours, as evidenced by the continuation of the human mind and psyche in the first few hours after death. Questions about the "self" and the "soul" that were once relegated to theology, philosophy, or even science fiction are now being examined afresh according to rigorous scientific research.
With physicians such as Parnia at the forefront, we are on the verge of discovering a new universal science of consciousness that reveals the nature of the mind and a future where death is not the final defeat, but is in fact reversible.

Loved the technical thoughts!
Being in the acute care setting for my entire carreer as an ER/ICU/CCU nurse, this got me thinking. Although it didn't explain much of what I already knew, the case studies were great. It still left me wanting more information, but it may be impossible to get more unless there are subjects who would agree to die and come back to life.

Excellent mix of science and antecdotal narrative-
Sam Parnia is a credible man of science who takes on a tough subject. His approach is as he was trained and he recounts his success and his troubles with a fair hand. The book is thought provoking and worth the read.
