between Life and Death. New York: HarperOne 2013. ISBN 978-0-06-208060-8. The implications for demography and life course studies have been signicant. As major causes of premature death are increasingly prevented or eradicated, medicine now focuses on pro-. longing life, curing hard-to-treat illnesses, and most importantly, from the point of view of Sam Parnia’s book, reversing death. Between the introductory and the concluding chapters, the book can be roughly divided into. two parts: part one, chapters 2–5, outlines new advances in medicine that allow well-trained and well-equipped.

Parnia has the extraordinary ability to communicate these complex concepts in a way that readers will understand. The result is a piece of work that is both stimulating and highly informative.

Parnia reveals how some form of afterlife may be uniquely ours, as evidenced by the continuation of the human mind and psyche after the brain stops functioning. With physicians such as Dr. Parnia at the forefront, we are on the verge of discovering a new universal science of consciousness that reveals the nature of mind and a future where death is not the final defeat, but is, in fact, reversible. Erasing Death: The Science That Is Rewriting the Boundaries Between Life and Death reveals that death is not a moment in time. Death, rather, is a process-a process that can be interrupted well after it has begun.

Erasing Death: The Science That Is Rewriting the Boundaries Between Life and Death reveals that death is not a moment in time. Death, rather, is a process—a process that can be interrupted well after it has begun. Innovative techniques have proven to be effective in revitalizing both the body and mind, but they are only employed in approximately half of the hospitals throughout the United States and Europe. Dr. Sam Parnia, Director of the AWARE Study (AWAreness during REsuscitation) and one of the world’s leading experts on the scientific study of death and near-death experiences (NDE), presents cutting-edge research from the front lines of critical care and resuscitation medicine while also shedding light on the ultimate mystery: What happens to human consciousness during and after death? Dr. Parnia reveals how some form of “afterlife” may be uniquely ours, as evidenced by the continuation of the human mind and psyche after the brain stops functioning. With physicians such as Dr. Parnia at the forefront, we are on the verge of discovering a new universal science of consciousness that reveals the nature of mind and a future where death is not the final defeat, but is, in fact, reversible.

I have read many book regarding death and Near-Death Experiences (or Actual Death Experiences (ADE) as the author likes to call specific types of NDEs). Dr. Parnia's thinking is exceptional, precise and scientific. He is dealing with a new phenomena and is his analytical and methodological thinking is outstanding. He describes death (our current understanding), resuscitation science, the AWARE study (trying to collect information during ADEs) and much more. Visionary - such a clear, open and non-prejudicial perspective on consciousness as a separate entity from the body.

In Erasing Death, Sam Parnia has created a highly readable review of the area of resuscitation medicine and of the now widely accepted phenomena of Near Death Experiences (NDEs) or Actual Death Experiences as he calls them. He provides a very thorough exploration of all the possible scientific theories, clearly showing why each falls short. In addition he has bought to light some of the latest developments in medicine that should improve survival rates.

Erasing Death also delves into the philosophical debate about the existence of the soul, and whether it is something that is generated by the brain or that uses the brain as a host. This discussion is expanded into the whole area of what consciousness means, including tussling with some of the modern attempts to explain it in quantum mechanical terms. Parnia is clearly a man who has contemplated and researched these concepts for many years, driven by the context of his own father's tragic permanent loss of consciousness and of the various experiences he has witnessed in emergency medicine.

However, many, would have bought this book to learn about results from the AWARE study and Dr Parnia does not disappoint. I will not put a spoiler in, particularly relating to any evidence supporting the out of body experience, but he does discuss some tantalizing initial findings. Interestingly, it would appear that a book published over a year ago, called Aware of Aware by Ben Williams, may have been on the money when it came to predicting the outcome. From what is revealed in Erasing Death it would appear that there are plans to expand the study and tighten some of the techniques used to insure better capturing of any evidence. As Parnia points out, this is a new area of science and these researchers are the trail blazers.

Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in the area of resuscitation medicine and NDEs. There are occasions when the writing is heavy on detail, and lay readers may get impatient, however this level of thoroughness should be expected from someone of Parnia's status and experience and only adds to the increasing authority that he brings to this discussion. For anyone who wishes to be fully informed on the latest and most valuable research this an absolute must read. Well done Dr Parnia and thank you for your dedication to this incredibly important subject.

Parnia deftly explains very complex processes for a non-professional audience. The book is roughly divided into an exploration of resuscitation and of experiences reported by people concerning while dead. In both sections he discusses standardization of process and scientific method. His language is smooth and easy to follow while not being so elementary to be condescending or boring.

His discussion of the "zip code" lottery that dictates the skill of the team attempting resuscitation is truly shocking. Equally disquieting is the fact that survival of cardiac stoppage has not improved since 1965. He presents compelling arguments for the training in CPR, the use of lowering the temperature in the patient, updating equipment, and mandating best practice are all balanced persuasive. Equally fascinating for me were his description of the exact mechanisms of death. He is quite detailed on the cascade of events that accompany the halting of a heart.

Parnia has chosen to scientifically study the reports of patients returning from cardiac death. His findings come strongly in support of cultural reports. He makes very solid argument for believing the brain and the self are not one entity. The philosophical history is an interesting adjunct to the exposition. This part of the.book provides a concise and thorough explication of the theories of the near death experience. He also provides convincing counter arguments to those who believe they are simply artifacts of the dying brain.

I heard of this book on NPR, and I am pleased with the reference. There is some repetition of content between chapters, the context is different. Therefore the repetition may be to support different points. It isn't annoying. Whether your belief system allows for after death experience or not, this book offers a balanced view of the subject, handled from the point of view of a researcher. The material on resuscitation speaks for itself. It is a book worth your time.

The book explores the issue of death both from the physical/medical side as well as the spiritual realm. I found the discussion of how the body reacts as it shuts down at death fascinating. The author made some very good points about the inconsistency and efficacy of resuscitation efforts in emergency rooms around the country if not the world. While some of the discussion about the spiritual side of death I have heard before, the author does add some interesting new ideas.
