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.

All loving God.

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.

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.
