    "not great if you're looking for ghost stories"

    Mr. Van Praagh's focus here is to explain how HE perceives the world of ghosts around him. It's a little self-important, and he's not the best narrator. The last 1/3 of the book is info about how to become psychically grounded and what you need to go "ghost-hunting." If you are looking for individual ghost stories, (like I was), there aren't too many to be found in this book.

    "WHAT???"

    I am a believer in the supernatural. I believe that there are people who are given the gift of being able to communicate with those who have passed. But this guy is NUTS. I had never heard of him, and thought the book sounded interesting. The stuff he says is SO out there, as if he knows exactly from the minute we are born to the minute we are reincarnated what happens, how it happens and why. I went along with it until he started talking about Abraham Lincoln coming to him with a group of others to help support him in his mission. The dude is so full of himself, and full of something else that I dare not say...I hate that I gave this fraud a dime of my money or a minute of my listening time. He is the type of fake that gives naysayers an example of absolute nonsense.

    After telling my friend about the LUNACY I was listening to, she told me she had heard of the guy and that she had seen him and felt the same way. Apparently he is famous, but clearly as a sideshow freak. God bless him, he's making a ton of money.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Not even interesting as total fiction.

    "This book really made me think."

    I can't say the number of times I had to stop the audio because something was said that really struck home. I used to have a dream often as a child that was disturbing to me. It wasn't until after I "read" this book that I dug a little deeper and discovered how on the mark my recurring dream was about something I could not have known about as a 5 to 6 year old. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

    Story
    "So good I listened to it twice."
    If you could sum up Ghosts Among Us in three words, what would they be?

    This book is very interesting. It is told in many stories but they are stories you can identify with. I like the way it tells the story of James Van Praagh's life. This book gives you a lot to think about.


    What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

    I think Lloyd James sounds a little bit like James Van Praagh. I would have loved to hear James Van Praagh tell the story himself.


    Any additional comments?

    I just bought another book by James Van Praagh and I hope it is as good.

    Story
    "I have a hard time believing Van Praagh"
    What would have made Ghosts Among Us better?

    I felt it was more fiction than non-fiction


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Van Praagh again?

    Nope - I don't think he is legitimate.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The presenter was ok. It wasn't hard to listen to....just hard to believe.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book should be moved to fiction

    "A Classic from James Van Praagh"
    What did you love best about Ghosts Among Us?

    James Van Praagh delivers another awesome book, the stories and messages that James communicates are both life affirming and life changing. Just wish that James was the narrator, but the voice of the narrator is decent.

    "Very Interesting"

    Worth the read and very enlightening. However, he tends to come across as very self absored or self importnat (I did this, I did that, etc.). Because I liked how he described the other world, which makes a lot of sense even being from a Catholic background, I've bought another of his books. Worth the read.
