    Excellent Book

    I really enjoyed this book. I also really enjoyed her show on Lifetime and was very disappointed when it was canceled. This book was very easy to read and I had trouble putting it down. It was fascinating to read about her psychic experiences as well as her personal life and how she found her way to what she was meant to do. I hope she writes another book soon!! I highly recommend this book!!

    An excellent peek into life among the dead

    One of my dear friends told me to turn on the TV to see someone amazing, and it turned out to be Lisa Williams. She had a show on the Lifetime Channel that featured her giving readings for people who wanted to contact spirit - and also she did 'housecalls' to homes with spirit activity. It was fascinating as it not only showed us how sessions were done, but let us into Lisa's life. The 3rd season was not picked up by Lifetime. And that is a shame - Lisa Williams wrote her biography, Life Among the Dead, and it is a refreshing look at the woman behind the metaphysical person. She gives a frank detailed look at her life, and how her gift was cultivated. Her grandmother was a famous psychic/medium, and she certainly inherited that gift. It also goes into detail how she and her family came to America. Merv Griffin, who was a spiritual man, was instrumental in the show. Her validation to Griffin that she was the real deal was amazing. Ms. Williams also does Reiki healing and her healings have been verified in her book. I also am familiar with Reiki and am glad she put this information in the book. There is little of the 'teaching' aspect in this book. Sometimes when you read something authored by a psychic/medium, they include little tidbits on how to meditate, or some insight into the metaphysical. While Ms. Williams does show us the various spiritual happenings, the only mention of 'the Other Side' is at the end, and that is an explanation of what happens when we 'cross over'. Whether or not you agree with her interpretation, if you are interested in expanding your knowledge, you will probably greatly enjoy this book. One hopes that Ms. Williams will continue her path on the metaphysical. She is delightful and a gifted lady. You will enjoy this book. I'm sure Merv Griffin is proud. ellen george

    Lisa's first book

    I really liked that book. Reading it during my lunch hours and having difficulties to go back to work! This books tells us all about her "gift", the beginning, the way she faced it. Very very interesting to read to know more about her and her personal life. She is now finishing her second book, which I cannot wait to buy!

    Lively Book - Couldn't Put It Down

    I picked up the book because I bought tickets to see her show at a theatre. I had never saw her television show, and I wanted to get a feel for her style. I thought the book was a quick, and easy read. It was interesting enough that I couldn't put it down. The subject matter is one that is intriguing. I liked it. I recommend the book.

    Life Among the Dead by Lisa Williams is a great book!

    I started to read this book and couldn't put it down until I had finished it. Lisa Williams has a show on Lifetime and some of her episodes can be seen at mylifetime.com. She is a wonderful, caring person.

    Chatty, Charming and Real

    I'd never seen Lisa Williams on TV, but picked up her book in B & N, and started reading. I sat down, and before I knew it, I got hooked. The sweetness of her personality comes out on every page, and you go along for a ride and she's chatting with dead people. Just normal -- for her. And that is normal for many people, but a lot of people won't admit it. If you're interested in this world, this is a great place to start! Charming book, and fun to read!
