Recommends it for: Anyone grieving a loss or interested in the "other side"
Recommended to Scotti by: Close friend
A good friend brought me this book a few months after my daughter passed away, almost five years ago. I have since bought used copies at about six at a time and most always have one on hand when anyone I know, or meet, has to go through a tragic loss. It has blessed me with new possibilities and I have great respect for George Anderson. I have now read many of his books.

Lots of accounts of spirits coming through and leaving juicy little profound nuggets of what life is like on the other side of the glass - the good work continues, without temptation - i cried a few tears every day with the revelations - and have a new understanding

This was the perfect time to be listening to this audiobook as it gave me great comfort during my father passing this week.

The books I’ve previously read were first-hand accounts of experiences on the other side. This book, as the subtitle aptly states, is about conversations from the other side and was the first about a psychic medium. George however, is not any medium, he is the world’s most scientifically test medium. His website states, “In his career, George has done more than 35,000 sessi

First read this years ago. A classic in after death communication. Long before John Edward and James Van Praagh were known there was George Anderson. This book features his life and gifts in communicating with those in spirit. Highly recommend.

This book is absolutely fascinating. I had heard of George Anderson and his ability to communicate with the dead several years ago when I was interviewing a woman who had lost her son to suicide. She had visited Anderson and had a personal experience with him that brought her great comfort in her grief. I finally got around to researching him myself by reading this book. Anderson is probably the most convincing medium I have ever researched.

While definitely an interesting read, I found myself skipping through some of the latter "reads". However, I found the Q&A in the last chapter interesting. Bottom line, whether you agree or not, there is life in the hereafter!

I think this is the first book I ever read about the life of a psychic and what we know about the afterlife. Having lost my dad 14 years earlier, it definitely gave me hope that my dad was actually "alive" and was aware of things happening in this plane, like my two oldest children being born.
Avel Rudenko
This is the best book on the after life that I have ever read. After reading this book, I am no longer afraid of dying, I realize that this is just the beginning, that we live on forever. George Anderson has an exceptional gift. Anyone who has ever lost a loved one should read this gives definite hope that our loved ones are still with us. If you ever had a fear of death, if you've ever wondered about a loved one who passed away, please read this book. George Anderson will give comfort ...more

VERY interesting book about communicating with the dead. Could be that I'm very gullible, but I want to believe George Anderson and his "gift". From what's reported in here, Anderson is accurate with his confirmations about the dead people he's communicating with. He verifies information about the dead without knowing anything about the person he's "talking" with. Makes me want to contact him to see if he can talk with any of my dead loved ones.

“At the 1986 reading George delivered to Barbara the following message from David: “I got a new job. I’m counseling young people who cross over.” He explained that he made the decision to do this and that all of the family’s and friends’ prayers had helped him to grow on the other side. Toward the end, he joked, “I earned my wings.” pg. 173.
This made me laugh out loud, I loved this part. Very nice book, changed a lot of the ways I viewed the afterlife.

What happens after death? Do we really die? Is there Heaven, Hell, or just blackness? All of your questions are answered in WE DON'T DIE.

To be frank, I've lost my grandpa to dementia and cancer, my only cousin to a military training accident, a best friend to an unknown heart condition, and two other friends to murder. I've known enough heartache for one lifetime, and still have more to go.

I wasn't raised in a Christian oriented home because my parents wanted me to find God on my own instead of

This book is a recompilation of "connections to the other side" of a desperate wannabe medium who relies on desperate dwelling souls who've lost loved ones. Save yourselves the trouble (and money) and don't buy any of his commercially driven bullshit. People like these mock the confidence on the possibility of a real connection and the process of any real deal medium. This one is just not the guy you are looking for.
Shame on you George Anderson and those who manage your "work".

Here is a real pai

As with Anderson's book Our Children Are Forever, this one can be very comforting for those who are grieving, depending upon one's mindset. If you are curious and have an open mind, it's an interesting read and I really liked learning the reasons George attributes for his psychic abilities. Having known two people who had readings by George, I know he has some sort of ability to be spot on, so that made me even more fascinated by him. It's a book that will leave you wondering and it made me feel ...more

I am very happy I read this book. It is about the psychic medium George Anderson, who can communicate with those who have passed over. George argues that no one really dies- they just move to another plane that is parallel to our earthly plane. The author shares various recorded transcripts of George's sessions with those who have lost loved ones. In these meetings, George shares astoundingly precise details. It is almost obvious that he is receiving messages from the "other side"! This is a com ...more

Not much new here, but entertaining and well-written . . . I haven't flown through a book so quickly since Out on a Limb {Shirley MacLaine}.

Seems like a research paper (extensive bibliography), mentioning Ruth Montgomery, Edgar Cayce and many more, combined with the author's personal interaction in a quest to possibly debunk George's abilities.

So much energy wasted on convincing the know-nothings; that was draining. Just get to it.
This is my third book about psychic mediums to help me understand how they communicate with our loved ones who are no longer in their physical bodies but are very much still with us. George's journey was very intersting and his readings very comforting. I found the Q&A in the last chapter very interesting to understand how he communicates and what he thinks of his gift. Bottom line, whether you agree or not, there is life in the hereafter!

I found it interesting, and he could perhaps be psychic, but I definitely do not believe he was communicating with the dead. I found it astounding how they mentioned he heard voices and had all those emotional difficulties...yet casually said 'but it definitely wasn't schizophrenia' - oh? why not?
Andrea Gutierrez
A very good book...if its just from the beginning. The only thing I didn't like about this book is the way that different stories were being told by different people who have encountered George but have the same process and method by which these people have encountered him. I just seems too...tedious.

I really enjoyed reading this book. His story of how his spiritual gift affected him growing up. Loved the stories of the readings. Glad it included how the scientific method was applied to this phenomena and comparisons of different forms of communicating with spirits. Also felt like I got to know George as a person and I liked his matter of fact style.

Own in paperback.

FS: "In the United States a person dies every sixteen seconds - or doesn't die."

LS: "Nonetheless, partially as a result of his and other' work, the near-death experience and research into discarnate survival have been rescued from the Twilight Zone and are currently being considered by researchers in a wide range of fields."


I choose this rating because it sooth me at the time of my husband's illness
I didn't care for all the details as much as the stories themself got a little humdrum saying the same thing over and over or I would of gave it a 5 star.

Very compelling evidence of George Andersons psychic abilities. A little to wordy & repetitive but worth the read if you are thinking you may want to visit a psychic.
