A fascinating, first person account of life as an internationally acclaimed medium. Very warmly and openly presented, John Edward comes across as the guy next door who is trying to explain AND understand what he does as a medium at the same time.

In chapters with titles like, “Living on This Side”, The 9/11 Factor”, and “Papa, Can You Hear Me?”, this author offers readers the constant assurances that life continues after death. He includes key psychic readings done before thousands of people or i

John Edward takes you, along with his documentary crew, to other countries, as well as to some celebrity interviews. Even more interestingly, he provides you with glimpses into his own personal life, and shares how what he's learned, affects him. For me, this book is reaffirmation of what I already know and believe.

I am NOT impressed with this guy at all. I won't go as far as to say he is a phoney, but I just don't get why he wrote this book. All he really does is talk about himself, himself, and more of himself. It's not at all what I had expected after hearing so much rave about this guy.

A really riveting reading experience for believer and critic alike; and maybe even the turning point for the non-believer. The concept is brought home by straight forward writing (no BS) and the work is easy to understand.
I was really surprised with John’s writing style, seeing that this was my first experience. I love the fact that he uses humor the way he does and it is also not an exaggerated attempt at it either; the balance he maintains throughout the book keeps it interesting, fun to read

I was talking with one of my coworkers about psychics and I mentioned that I enjoyed Sylvia Browne's books so she asked if I had ever read John Edward. I hadn't, so this was her recommendation.

I liked it. There are some interesting similarities between the two of them- they both have spirit guides, they both are able to communicate with folks from the other side. I like Sylvia's books more because she goes into the different topics of the unknown while Edward just seems to do reading after readi

i used to watch Crossing Over when it was on TV. with that background, i have an interest in hearing/understanding "more". the book delivers. very very thought provoking. inspirational. hopeful. JE reaches out to people with the intent to bring them more hope, more peace. he doesn't have an easy job, but he does it with patience, honesty, and committment.

John Edward is an excellent medium and great writer. His books are full of compassionate stories of reuniting loved ones on both sides of the veil, and to me in particular, his books are a sort of therapy. Highly recommend his One Last Time too! Thank you John for all that you do. God Bless!

I enjoyed Crossing Over a lot, and this book is more of John's accounts of his readings. The added bonus is that John talked more about his personal life. I particularly appreciated that he described his difficult relationship with his father. And the ending of the book was perfect.

My father and I followed the show Crossing Over, and for Christmas one year, I got my dad this book. I don't know if he read it or not, but it caught my eye one day, so I decided I would give it a try. I believe that every book comes to you with an important message that is (or soon will be) relevant to your life. It's the same with this book. I have been struggling with my own sense of grief, and there were passges in this book that have helped me to find a sense of peace. I feel that John Edwa ...more

This is my second book I've read from John. I'm always amazed at his openness and candor. Here is a man who is evolving and allowing us a peek inside of his family, experiences and abilities. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the psychic world and have always believed in the fact that you can communicate with those who have passed over and John has a way of bringing such excitiment to the subject that completely captivates the reader!

I am and have been a John Edward follower for years. I never missed his Crossing Over or Cross Country With John Edward and am sorry that it is no longer on TV. I like him and what he is conveying to us. This book came at a time when I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer. I know my husband is a believer and can only hope it helps him when the time comes. Keep up the good work John.

So, ok, little sappy time, but will help understand why I like this guy and this book. I read this shortly after my birth-mother passed, looking for some sort of understanding. I know it seems a bit hokey at times, but to someone like me that believes that alot of things exist that we just can't understand, it does help a bit.

An interersting look into what a medium does. If the book has a shortcoming its that what John Edward does is pretty difficult to put into words. Reading After Life had me convinced that Edward is the real deal though and not the fraud that some of his critics have labled him.

Kleenex required. The documentation of his readings was straight forward and allowed you to draw your own conclusion. I didn't feel "preached to". I found the book comforting.

More for boys and basketball fans than for me. I always liked books where the characters speak another language and blips of their dialogue is written in that language.

John Edward was amazing to me on T.V.'s Crossing Over. Now that I have read this book I am doubly amazed! He is helping people all over the world!
