After reading the synopsis and some of the reviews, I did not expect to like this book as well as I did. A lot of the story is about the author growing up in NYC in the 70's.
The author is a great storyteller and I'm sad the story had to end.

Terry Iacuzzo is apparently one of the big psychics to the stars (and to other VIPs), although of course we have to take her word for it because she refuses to reveal who she's done readings for. This book is mainly a memoir of childhood and early adulthood, and details her strained relationship with her brother Frank (who was/is also a famous psychic) and the rest of her family, who also possess uncanny abilities. It's a rather difficult memoir for a skeptic to read. On the one hand, it's absol ...more

Just because you have an interesting story to tell does not mean that you should write a memoir. In fact, even if your life isn't terribly above the norm or outside the box you still can write a memoir as long as you are proficient at expressing yourself using the written word.

I thought this book was pedestrian at time in the dialogue that Iacuzzo wrote and also in the way that she highlighted various remnants of her life without much introspection or connection to a larger picture. She may be a

This book was awesome and I really enjoyed it. Some of the things that happened to Teresa while growing up are very disturbing. But she finally comes into her own and relaxes and becomes a great phychic. Amazing to think the entire family are phychic. It saddened me that they didn't have a better relationship with one another. They all seemed to be solo throughout their lives. It would be amazing to have a reading from Terry Iacuzzo. But maybe scary to think what she may have to tell me about my ...more

Recommends it for: lovers of intense autobiographies!
WOW! I could NOT stop reading this book. Seriously, I read it in one day. The writing (obviously) flowed smoothly and quickly, and the author has a fascinating life (to me, at least).

Some parts are really creepy, some make you laugh out loud. I'm so glad she finally found her calling as a psychic; sometimes it was so obvious as she struggled with different things to do with her gift you wanted to yell at her, "are you a psychic or not?!" and throw the book across the room.

Loved it.

Wow. A good read. I think this book is a good book for any one who is a skeptic of psychics. The author is so normal/down to earth/relatable that you can't help but trust the story and trust her. It's also a great picture of NY in the 70s. I'm not sure what I expected when I picked the book up, but it's a great tale of an interesting life --well up until her 20s. Definitely worth a read.

I picked this up off the floor at my boyfriend's brother's house and ended-up taking it home with me after flipping through the first few pages.

I should have left it at that.

Not particularly recomended.

Facinating title but I was disappointed by the content. I had hoped to read more insights into the psychic elements of her family life. Instaed a good deal revolved around promiscuity and drug use by a woman who for years seemed directionless.

Hilarious....her deadpan humor had me cracking up every few pages. Thats a good book! Seriously funny, but serious at the same time.

In the hands of a skilled writer, Terry's story would have been engrossing. But there is no denying that she has lived a fascinating, if sometimes very disturbing, life.
