I found this book interesting and it made me realize how much of a skeptic I still was about mediums and mediumship. I was amazed by the people involved and the results from the readings time and agian throughout the book. The way this doctor/author set up, performed and graded the results was brillant so no one could go back and say it was set up or faked in any way. Even if you don't believe at all you should take a look at this book. You may find your beliefs shaken and have to rethink what y ...more
I was fascinated by the incidents that happened in Allison DuBois' life that were recreated in the TV show.

The scientific experiments got a little tedious, but you have to appreciate how the scientists tried to preserve the integrity of their experiments and anonymity of the test subjects. How exactly did the mediums even know who to read when it was being done via telephone through a second party?

I don't know how much I believe in psychics and mediums, but it was an interesting book.

The first half was interesting but then it devolved into the politics of skeptic/believer, and started listing the author's own grievances, and I suddenly got really really bored.
I got about halfway through this book and found I could get no further... It just wasn't what I expected. Too "scientific" yet not convincing.
I found the topic very interesting and the book gave me many resources plus things to think about.
Too much scientific jargon for me.
