If they are going to make a movie or TV series about Edgar Cayce, they can easily toss out half of this book.
Edgar Cayce was a humble man who had the ability to put himself to sleep. Once asleep, he would be asked questions regarding the health of strangers and would recommend "treatments" to help these people. Author Thomas Sugrue was a person friend of Edgar Cayce. Sugrue's writing style ruined this book for me. It was just so...boring. Someone should have edited out chunks of this book. At times, it read like a Cayce genealogy. I've nothing against the Cayce family, but I bought this book to hear about Edgar, not his father or his sisters. If you are mildly curious about the life and work of Edgar Cayce, go somewhere else for your information. If you have a burning desire to hear about ever little detail of the Cayce family, every business dealing and partnership that Cayce had throughout his life, then this is the book for you. There were two narrators for this audio book: a male and female. One narrator would read a chapter and then the other narrator would read the next chapter. I don't know why the producers chose this method as it added nothing to the story, nor did it improve the performance of said narrators.
