Publisher's Summary

The star of TLC's Long Island Medium shares her extraordinary gift and reveals how she helps people who have lost loved ones find peace, closure, and healing.

In her highly anticipated new book, brassy and beloved medium Theresa Caputo, star of the hit television show Long Island Medium, opens the door to her world and invites us to experience her exceptional gift of communicating with those who've crossed over to The Other Side. The always funny, frank, and down-to-earth medium began communicating with Spirit at the age of four, but didn't fully accept her gift until she was 33 years old. She had a good life as a busy wife and mom, but also suffered from chronic anxiety that came from ignoring her unique abilities. Once Theresa began channeling, she discovered that she felt much better after delivering a message from Spirit and releasing that energy. Since then she's used her extraordinary gift to help countless people heal from the loss of their loved ones.

Theresa makes us all aware that there is more to life than what we see here in the physical world. She wants you to know that our deceased loved ones are safe and at peace assisting us from The Other Side. She also wants you to realize that the unexplainable things you sense and feel from these souls are real, and that it's healthy and essential to acknowledge them.

There's More to Life than This explains how Theresa's mediumship works, what happens to our soul when we die, what Heaven is like, what the deceased want us to know, the importance of living a positive life, and the many roles that our family, friends, angels, guides, and God play here and in the afterlife. It also explores how to safely connect with Spirit, so that we can recognize when our loved ones are reaching out.

Combining Theresa's personal story, compelling anecdotes, and client readings, this remarkable book teaches us about Spirit and helps us understand the life-affirming messages that are sent to us every day.

Yes! Theresa Caputo has an incredible gift. And she is fun and funny which gives a light-hearted feel to a serious book.If you like her TV show "Long Island Medium", you will love this book!

What did you like best about this story?

I don't know that I could pick a favorite part. What I loved the most were Theresa's insights and descriptions of her ability and readings. She makes the other side feel so familiar and close that it brings comfort to me.

I was moved by so many of her stories about specific readings. They helped put her descriptions of her gift and of spirit, in context.

Interesting, but hard to listen to!

What did you love best about There's More to Life than This?

I have watched Theresa Caputo on television and while she is an original, I do believe much of what she experiences is true. I was glad to learn more about her life and experiences in this book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I feel terrible saying this, but Theresa did a horrible job narrating her own book! I know she had assistance writing it but she reads it as if she isn't even aware what is coming next. Her delivery is monotone, she pauses mid-sentence at times and it feels like she is reading someone else's book aloud. That was VERY distracting from the experience. If the author of a book is not good at reading it with emotion and as if they are storytelling (as Theresa should be since it's HER life story) then they should not do the audiobook.

Any additional comments?

Great book. Theresa Caputo is not a good narrator and I am surprised they didn't spot this in production and work with her to improve her delivery of the text.

I needed to hear this

This book has helped me to heal a little more. I also understand signs from our loved ones more clearly and I no longer feel like "I'm just imagining things". I'm looking forward to the next book.

Helped me to stop worrying about my son

My son died almost 4 years ago & I've driven myself crazy with the "What if's". I've seen Theresa's show & I believe in her. She taught me that, he didn't go to hell just because he took his own life, that nothing I did could have changed what happened, and that he's happy & at peace where he is. I've been told all the same things at Church, but hearing it from someone who's not Clergy makes me believe it's true & not just someone trying to make me feel better. Theresa's reading is a little choppy, but it's because she's making sure to speak slower & enunciate her words for people who have trouble understand Long Island accents. She does a great job speaking clearly & concisely.

Thoroughly enjoyed! And I really do believe her.

Whatever your thoughts and beliefs... Just do it! Buy this audio book and listen with sincere, undivided, attention. Put ALL of your conceptions, partialities, prejudices and bias on the side for a time. Theresa Caputo really does an exceptional job of courageously sharing what it's like for her being a medium as well as explaining the afterlife, the spirit world, energy - both positive and negative, answers to stuff uncertain, advice, comfort and just altogether, I believe to be good and real information. Overall, this audio book was most interesting and intriguing. I will reference this audio book again and again. I, for one, do believe her.

not so sure

I was a fan of TC , but this book made me wonder. The afterword by the ghost, play on words, writer was annoying and too patronizing. My question is T said she wasn't sure of her gift until after her children were toddler age, after going to see Pat., but then later talks about seeing the fly/and knowing it was Nana right after giving birth to her daughter. Also, not sure God would want her using the gift to persuade people one way or another for $. And lastly, why and how would Pat need to help a departed soul go to the light. wouldn't God be capable of moving the soul along or teaching passed souls. I don't doubt her gift but feel uncomfortable the way she uses it. She also is way too happy and always positive about hard lessons that must be learned. I do like that she lifts the weight but people should be able to do this without T.

Theresa is the Real Deal

What made the experience of listening to There's More to Life than This the most enjoyable?

Everything, her personality is what made it most enjoyable and that she read her own book makes it even more personal. I also love how much content she covers. Anything you ever wondered about the afterlife she discusses.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Theresa of course, her personality is so fun and she tells amazing stories about her readings, I never got bored.

What about Theresa Caputo’s performance did you like?

She had very high energy, it wasn't overwhelming but the content she covers can be sad but she made it happy throughout.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When she talks about God, heaven, everything. I have met other mediums and they say the same thing, she is the real deal!!

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent book for those that want to know about their loved ones that have passed, how they are doing and to find peace with them, yourself and especially with God.

What an inspiration!

We lost our daughter almost 7 weeks ago. I've also been intrugued by Theresa's gift, so I bought this audiobook to answer questions I had. I found this book to be comforting and was relieved to learn how grounded Theresa was in her faith. I only wish I could meet her in person.

Answers a lot of questions.

Thanks to the authors for writing this book. All my life I have known spirits, but we didn't talk about it in my family because my father was so frightened of them. I never understood why they scared him because they never did anything- they were just there. So many questions built up over the years, but no answers. This book has finally answered some of those questions. Wish I had had this book when I was a young girl.

Amazing

I loved this book. It resonated with me in a very profound way. I got so emotional in parts that I lost count of the times I sobbed like a baby. Just hearing this book has made me feel closer to my departed loved ones and brought me much needed comfort. I also loved that Teresa narrated the book herself. It felt more personal somehow. I'm onto her next book now.

Inspiring and uplifting

I love the tv show but this book was unexpected. Read in Theresa's jolly upbeat style she offers lots of insightful life lessons and some very sound advice on life and life's challenges. The paranormal aspect is very interesting. She seems like a good soul and it was a lovely listen.
