Fragen, die jeden Menschen berühren und die in diesem Buch auf revolutionäre Weise neu beantwortet werden. Mit 54 Jahren erkrankt der renommierte Neurochirurg und Harvard-Dozent Eben Alexander an einer extrem seltenen Form der Hirnhautentzündung. Er fällt ins Koma. Die Ärzte stellen fest, dass sein Gehirn irreparabel geschädigt ist, und prognostizieren sein baldiges Ende. Doch Eben Alexander kehrt ins Leben zurück – und gesundet innerhalb kurzer Zeit. Minutiös berichtet der Gehirnforscher, was er während des Komas durchlebte: Begleitet von einem Engelwesen taucht er ein in eine Welt ohne Zeit und Raum, in der sich ihm die göttliche Quelle allen Seins offenbart. Hier erfährt er: Wir alle sind Teil eines universalen, unsterblichen Bewusstseins.

Innerhalb kürzester Zeit erkrankt sie schwer, leidet an Wahnvorstellungen und wird binnen weniger Wochen zum Schwerstpflegefall in der Psychiatrie. Vollgepumpt mit Medikamenten wird sie ans Bett gefesselt und vegetiert vor sich hin – dem Tod näher als dem Leben. Doch ihre Familie gibt nicht auf bis endlich der renommierte Neurologe Souhel Najjar hinzugezogen wird. Er findet heraus, dass Susannah an einer erst vor kurzem entdeckten Autoimmunerkrankung leidet, in deren Verlauf der Körper das eigene Gehirn angreift und Symptome wie Schizophrenie, Autismus und Wahnvorstellungen erzeugt. Einmal richtig diagnostiziert, sorgen die geeigneten Medikamente rasch und dauerhaft für Genesung und Susannah gewinnt ihr Leben zurück. Ihre Schilderung des Leidensweges ist eine bewegende und aufregende Geschichte über Familie, Liebe, Hoffnung und darüber, wie sich ein perfektes Leben innerhalb kürzester Zeit in eine Katastrophe verwandeln kann. Ein fesselndes Buch, das man nicht aus der Hand legen kann, bis die letzte Seite verschlungen ist.
