This book was good in that you read "real accounts" from people ......I would recommend it for people starting to read Sylvia Browne..touches on many basics....then whatever peaks your interest reach for another of her books to read about it more
She makes reference on p.8 to some people I'd like to read further about like Madame Helena Blavatsky - although a little outrageous in her presentation, she predicted things that came to pass after her death in 1891. Apparantly Albert Einstein kept her book handy - The Secret Doctrine.

H.G Wells (War of the Worlds) predicted many modern day machines also.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock Holmes stories....almost the last half of his life was dedicated to spiritual studies.

Edgar Cayce - also prop...more
Sylvia has the tendency to write about the same things over and over, publishing them in book after book. She usually talks about when she first realized she was psychic, how she dealt with this realization, and what being a psychic really means. However, while she touches on these topics (how can she not?), this is one of Sylvia's best books. She actually goes into details about cases she's helped to solve, and some of the stories are truly gripping. This is a great read!

This was a really interesting book. I liked reading Sylvia's experiences growing up, and I found the cases she presented and the testimonials to be fascinating. I would say this is even a feel-good book. Sylvia left me with a feeling of well-being and reassurance, actually. She seems like quite the character, and I have to admire someone who has such clarity and acceptance about who she is, even in the face of skeptics and scoffers.
this was a really uplifting and inspiring book! it was so warm and comforting, i recommend it to anyone who wants to find some inner peace...i really felt like it centered me! one caveat though - if you've never read any of Sylvia's books, don't start with this one, it doesn't cover the necessary background needed to understand Sylvia's abilities.

Fun yarn of a rainy day read if you're in the mood for such things. A fast read, but if you've read her other books you'll find this derivative, and the anecdotes are somewhat bland, and sound as if they were written more to convince of the accuracy of her work than the impact of it.

Recommends it for: sylvia fans
Agree with some of her stuff.. but don't really like her that much!!!
For one thing.. she charges way too much for her readings... and then writes about why she does it..
oh well.. that is my ONE S. Browne read
gave the book to a friend who loves her stuff
Again, information repeated over and over from her other books.
Get new material to talk about!
Youre a freaking psychic. You should have more case files than just the ones explained in other books.
Sylvia brown confuses me. She goes from great insight to shady gimmicks. I do not know how to take this book. It seems to both ramble and contradict itself. I want it to be true.
This is the sixth book that I've read by the author Sylvia Browne. They are more alike than different. Interesting reading if you are curious about afterlife.

Mostly letters that people wrote in to Sylvia after they have a reading so it is an upbeat book. Some of the information provided was interesting me.
Same stuff repeated plus i just youtubed and reality is taking the place of my imaginationg. not as interestign as i thought.
DOE has read this book. Fun and very interesting. Leaves you feeling good about yourself and the future that awaits.
Sylvia tells stories of her years of clients, hauntings and helping out the police to solve crimes.
FANTASTIC!!!! By far my favourite book! All those testimonials just goes to show she's for real
this book was just like all her other books,I forgot I was onto the next!
I love all Sylvia Browne's books!!!! I highly recommend all of them!
So So, not as good as the other books by this author
Beautiful. Wonderful. I love this woman!
