An Engaging Read

“Stone’s little book is an especially engaging read because of the thoughtfulness he has given exploring what happens to our consciousness when our body gives out. While I thought I would rip through this small book in no time—having had a near death experience myself that led to establishment of a Buddhist practice as does Stone’s main character—I constantly found myself putting down the text to contemplate a passage, or just marvel at how right he’d gotten elements of my own experience.

He weaves qualities of Alice in Wonderland into his own text to delightful effect. Stone and his publisher also have done an especially effective job of integrating Under the Tree with a Web site that is especially informative.”
