This book was recommended to me by a friend with an interest in the paranormal; because my grandfather is fascinated by mediums and the paranormal, I decided to leaf through it, though I've never experienced anything out of the ordinary myself. Phenomenon is an encyclopedia-type book that offers explanations on a number of different paranormal terms. Some entries are short and to the point; others are much longer and span pages. For folks (like me) who don't have much background knowledge on the ...more

I have read this book from front to back, it is set up like an encyclopedia but in her own words. I am a big fan of Sylvia as I am a fan of her ability's. I watch her on Montell and I believe that her insights have inspired me in many ways. To say about the book a bit, I will say that if anyone has any questions about the paranormal, the meanings for divination, the differences between a ghost and a spirit, so many things she discussed has a connection with all of us nomatter what belief you hav ...more
Sylvia writes a book this time in a different format. This is set up like a matter of fact A to Z dictionary of terms about the mystical/paranormal/afterlife, etc. Even if you're a skeptic or non-believer, Sylvia writes from a position of acceptance; being nonjudgemental. I read her first book years ago, and was captivated by her account of her near death experience, her spirit guide, and her journey to find answers about our spiritual lives. Whether you're Christian, Jewish, Catholic, Buddhist, ...more

I wasn't really expecting to read a dictionary on all things paranormal, but that's exactly what this book is. Only Sylvia Browne could make that a pleasurable experience! I really enjoyed how she threw in her own opinions, and stories. This book might just be one of the best for someone with a newly sparked interest in all things spiritual/paranormal.
I must say, I'm not fan of Sylvia (most psychic I find questionable), but she's converted me with this one. It's dictionary style so if you don't agree with the definition you can pass to the next.. very interesting and it's creeped me out. Life will be viewed in a different light by this reader!
Very interesting things to think about that mirrors alot of other books of this sort say. Not sure I agree/believe in all of it and she says 'what can it hurt' quite a bit, but in my opinion, it could hurt spriritually trying some things. Still gives quite a bit to think about.

Este libro define y describe muchas de las palabras que frecuentemente se utilizan en el mundo de lo paranormal. Por suerte, algunas de ellas se han convertido en parte del vocabulario corriente, pero otras son desconocidos o se emplean a menudo de manera errónea.

Very information packed. If you are interested in the paranormal, this is the go-to book for all of your questions. You'll find yourself refering to it more than once.
