Excellent with a spiritual twist!

This book was very interesting and spoke to me on many levels. I wasn't truly expecting the spiritual side of the message! Definitely a must read for anyone who wants to better understand themselves and others. It will leave you with a calmness and will center you in an oftentimes crazy world!6

We've been lied to

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Fans of Ghost Whisperer.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I was looking for an informative read about ghosts in today's society instead of a six and a half hour plug for Praagh's show.

Any additional comments?

Not a horrible book, just not accurately represented as what it is.

Fantastic!

I have read many other books by well-known mediums, so I was afraid I wasn't going to learn anything new when I began to read this. I'm happy to report that, not only is this very well-written, it was full of surprising, new information. There was never a dull moment, and I LOVED all the helpful exercises toward the end of the book for protection, raising your vibration, etc. that the author included.

For anyone looking to learn about Spirit and the afterlife, how to improve your own quality of life, or even just for good entertainment, I highly recommend this book.

Good story But a bit bragidocious

Would you listen to Ghosts Among Us again? Why?

Yes, I have as well. I liked it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghosts Among Us?

James' uncanny accuracy.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I had trouble turning it off many times.

Any additional comments?

James Van Praagh should have left out things such as the mention of the caliber of restaurants he'd eaten at, The cost of the wine, Champagne ect. Otherwise a good story.

Informative and eye-opening perspective

What made the experience of listening to Ghosts Among Us the most enjoyable?

I have read similar books on the subject of spirits that surround us and how they may influence our lives. This one hits on important points that directly pertain to daily living without trying to convince or hard sell the concept but to merely "teach". It helps to have a genuine belief in this kind of thing or at the very least, an open mind to the possibility that ghost do exist and are there to guide and assist. I especially enjoyed the chapter on the different levels of spirit guides and also the chapter on how to protect yourself from the daily negativity and evil that exists in the world around us.

Have you listened to any of Lloyd James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to Lloyd James before, but thoroughly enjoyed his clear, strong voice. It is very easy on the ears.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's a book you may want to take in short increments as there is a lot to take in and digest. Especially if your desire is to increase your knowledge and skill at becoming aware of the present and the other dimensions that exist around us. This book also takes the time to illustrate many steps in honing your intuitive gifts.

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.
