Mr Mills is a wonderful author as well as a neurosurgeon. Have always been interested in NDE. Now that I am getting older and nearing the end of my life on this earth, I am even more interested. This is the first book of a NDE I have read that actually described being in the earth, seeing the worms, darkness, etc before seeing something pleasant, i.e.the pretty girl on the butterfly. I thought it would be his wife he recognized on the butterfly at the end but it was his birth sister, whom he had never met. Yes, I loved the book. I would recommend it to anyone and especially o anyone who is having doubts about where we go after death.
