My Book Review. Near Death in the ICU: Stories from Patients Near Death and Why We Should Listen to Them

Dr. Bellg invites the reader to consider that bearing witness to a patient's near-death experience is a respectful and meaningful part of medical care, a way for families to support their loved ones, and an important part of the patient's healing.  
This book invites you to reconsider what happens when we die, and in doing so, challenges you to ponder that perhaps we are much more than our earth-bound physical bodies.  
My review of this book:  It is well researched and well written by an ICU doctor who had personal contact with the patients.  So these are first-hand experiences that she writes about.  I found the patients' experiences to be thought provoking - why are they all so similar.  Thos book offers a variety of experiences from a variety of people.  It  will leave you wondering if there is more to death than we presently know.
