Recommends it for: Those interested in the occult and mediums.
Shelves: paranormal, occult
A rather interesting look at developing psychic or mediumship abilities. This book draws heavily on the works of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches as well as historical accounts of mediumship throughout the last century and a half.

For a practical guide to developing these abilities I'm not sure I would recommend this book. However, from an historical point of view it covers some interesting topics although it serves as an apologist work for much of the physical medium movement o
This is a book (actually it is a retooling of Buckland's book "Doorways To Other Worlds") that looks like a companion to his famous "big blue book"(The Complete Book of Witchcraft)...but while it is also set out as a series of "lessons" (this time on becoming a "medium") it actually seemed to me to be a series of profiles on different spiritualist personalities (including John Edward who I think was shown to actually be a charlatan...LOL!) It is in truth a very very basic survey on spiritualism. ...more

This book is best as a historical book if you are interested in how mediumship developed in the beginning. It mentions different historical figures. This book was very basic, and i felt the whole book was merely an introduction.
This is not a book I'd recommend to my friends.
Very interesting and enlightening. After reading this book, I feel a whole world of exploration opening up for me.
