I gave it 3 stars because of its unique content and some important lessons. However I do not like Rev. Don Piper at all! The book is mostly about his whiny recovery from his near-fatal accident. The first 2 chapters deal with his experience in heaven during the 90 minutes that the paramedics thought he was dead after a truck hit his car. He is a southern Baptist and the description of heaven is complete with pearly gates (literally) and a personal welcoming committee of people he knew who died before him (very welcoming and comforting though) and music (all playing at once, and very angelic, but supposedly wonderful) and lots more that he can't describe in words.After that, it's all about his injuries, pain and recovery. Lots of complaining and a terrible attitude most of the time. Big humbling lesson is that he needs to allow others to help him in some way. This is very hard for him to do, but he does start to do it somewhat sometimes. I think it's a great lesson.
