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

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

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.
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.
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.
recommended to me by my aunt...she said it reminded her of me...kinda cool i guess
if i was psychic I woulda known...

still want to be

What a great read! You will be transported to a very revealing memoir of a girl who grew up in a family of psychics.
A true story of a family of psychics. Her brother is Frank Andrew, a famous psychic in NYC. Very interesting. Wild!
don't know whether i believe this or not, but it was still an interesting/thought provoking book.

I really enjoyed this book! It's a great read, but definantly not good for a skeptic.
A delightful book...highly enjoyed reading it and I highly recommend it.
Disappointing, mostly about drugs and sexual preferences. Skip it.
This is one of my favorite books. Nonstop entertainment.
Interesting coming-of-age story of a very original woman.
This book really made me want to visit a psychic...
Starts off really good, but then gets slow
