Good Book - Great Information

I'm a writer (that's my book below), a working hypnotherapist, and I do Past Life Regressions, so I'm not unbiased. But even though the title of James Van Praagh's "Ghosts Among Us" conjures up old movie images of wafting, misty entitles, his book gives a different sen...
I'm a writer (that's my book below), a working hypnotherapist, and I do Past Life Regressions, so I'm not unbiased. But even though the title of James Van Praagh's "Ghosts Among Us" conjures up old movie images of wafting, misty entitles, his book gives a different sense of the "other side." He makes it clear that the "other side" is right here; you can reach out and touch it. His writing is clear, direct, and most of all encouraging and comforting. He assures his readers that they have access to hearing from dead loved ones if they allow themselves to take the time, learn to listen and connect. I love James's work because he helps make the "unreal" more concrete. And most importantly, he helps to make the real communications from "ghosts" taken seriously, even though they are easier to simply ignore. I recommend this book highly.

Interestingly bad

I read this book for a school assignment and was pleasantly surprised. It was completely absurd but interesting non-the-less. He was contradictory and illogical but the shear stupidity of it all provided me with limitless entertainment.

    Not so bad

    I have yet to read beyond the ssmple, and though the book seems quite deft i did find an inacuracy in the introduction. Right now in this country is not the peak of intrest in ghosts. That particular tittle would belong to the mid ninetnth centery when an intire religion was built around the beleif in ghosts, spiritialisum. These books are tough, as a rational person you never quite know what to believ. I grew up in a haunted house, acording to my mothet anyway, she saw this woman all the time she said, this being the woman who had spent her life in ghe house and died there shortly before my family purchused the hose, this woman from what i heard sounded like some one who might haunt her childhood home, you see dhe never left it, never married and allways remained there even after her broghers and sisters moved on. Any i was only one the first and last time i encountered her, though i was one i was talking. It was the middle of the night and my mother woke to me crying she headed to my room to comfort me but upon entering discovered i was not in the crib, i was behind ghe closet door. My mother quite upset that her child was some how out of the crib and shut in a closet, asked me how i got in tbere "the old lady brought me in here" is what i told my mothef, i guess there was not much of any more resonable an explaination, no one else was in the house that night and this crib was not one i had ever gotten out of on my own before or after the incident. So was my only evidence of this ghost in my home, but even as a grown woman there was still some thing about the second floor of that house that gave me a chill ..willa.....

    Easy and fast

    this book was easy to read and fast moving. I love books about spirits and ghosts, and seeing others poiints of view. However this book was a little too easy to read and the dialog was very bland. The story was like it was being told right to you and not painting a very vivid picture for the reader, granted it wasn't that type of a book, and no real pictures would be needed for the stories that were told.<BR/><BR/>however much I liked this book, I still prefer Mary ann Winkowski's When Ghost Speak to this one.
