Overview

John Edward takes his fans with him on the extraordinary journey that has been his life.

In the style of his TV show and personal appearances—poignant, funny, and remarkably candid—John Edward deals head-on with the controversial issues he has confronted on his voyage as a psychic medium. On his way to success and fame, John had to learn his own lessons about the meaning of his work, the motivations of some of the people he encountered, and the spirits who accompanied them. Through his very personal stories, John has brought peace and insight to those grieving for their loved ones—but what makes Edward’s memoir unique is how readily he exposes his own vanities and ego bruisings.

In addition, he provides a behind-the-scenes look at being a television medium, offering an amusing—and at times disturbing—look at how the ethereal world clashes with the celebrity world.

John Edward’s wit, warmth, and passion will captivate readers—just as it has riveted the millions who view his landmark program.

In the style of his TV show and personal appearances-poignant, funny, and remarkably candid-John deals head-on with the controversial issues he has confronted on his voyage as a psychic medium.

Meet the Author

John Edward has brought a fresh, honest and thought provoking attitude to the world of psychic phenomena. As a psychic medium, author and lecturer, he has, over the last fifteen years, helped thousands with his uncanny ability to predict future events and communicate with those who have crossed over to the Other Side.

John embarked on developing his own abilities after an encounter with famed psychic Lydia Clar. Lydia made him aware of his abilities and directed him to use them to assist others. Since then, his clientele has ranged from young to old, student to professor, people of the clergy, law enforcement agencies and people from everyday life. . . His clients wait over a year to sit with him for private sessions, and although John is anxious to share his ability with those that need him, he is unwilling to compromise the quality of his work for the quantity that seek him out.

His long awaited book, One Last Time, was released in November of 1998 and has received wide acclaim from reviewers and clients alike. In November of 1999, it hit #1 on the Los Angeles Times Bestsellers list. John was featured in the HBO Documentary, Life Afterlife, that debuted in October 1999 where he established a connection to the Human Energy Systems Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona. Professor Gary Schwartz and his partner in science and life, Professor Linda Russek, head up the laboratory, and are dedicated scientists that are studying the science of mediumship and the evidence of survival of consciousness. I personally applaud their efforts, tenacity, and dedication in seeking to explore this realm in a scientific manner. More information on this to come ...

John has also appeared on Larry King Live, Leeza, Roseanne, Maury, Sally, Entertainment Tonight, The Crier Report, Charles Grodin and HBO. He recently released a series of new audio tapes that are key elements in raising awareness about psychic energy and mediumship. John is excited to host the new television show Crossing Over with John Edward on the Sci Fi Cable Network beginning in June 2000.

Born and raised on Long Island, NY, John exhibited psychic abilities from an extremely early age, and was deemed "special" by many in his family. The fact that he would uncannily know family history and events that took place prior to his birth solidified that fact. Because no fuss was made over these early experiences, he maintained as normal a childhood as possible. Since psychic phenomena was so accepted by his family, it was easy for his abilities to flourish. John graduated college with a degree in Public Administration and Health Care Administration. He maintained a management position in a leading health care facility in the Northeast, and always continued his research, lecturing, teaching, readings, and writing in the field of parapsychology. Due to the large demand for his time and ability, John now devotes his time to pursuing his psychic work full time.

John resides in Long Island, New York, with his wife Sandra and their two Bichon Frises, Jolie and Roxie.

    Great Behind the Scenes Stories About Being John Edward

    Crossing Over is more than just a continuation of John Edward's first book, One Last Time. Here John details all of the hoops he had to jump through on his way to his amazing success. There were many setbacks along the way, but John continued to listen to his guides and always moved forward. More stories here about amazing psychic skill and life after death to be sure, but this book is more about the life and times of JE's amazing journey to awareness.

    A look at the facinating world of a medium

    Learning about how John Edwards gift evolved making him one of the worlds most famous mediums is one heck of a read. He is as charming in books as he is on TV.

    Interesting

    I enjoyed John's first book and this one did not disappoint either. Instead of a series of readings, he gives more insight into his journey. How he got on TV and the struggle he went through to keep it real. Well written and well worth the time in reading.

    Must Read for JE Fans

    While I am still on the fence about the whole spirit connection, I have always found John Edward to be mesmerizing. I saw him live at a Nashville, TN event a few years ago and was more impressed. The book definitely highlights the fact he wants us not to focus on the man, but on the messages.

    Unexpected delights.....

    I knew that i would enjoy this book, I looked forward to learning more about the man, and if I were lucky perhaps a bit about his God given strengths and abilities. Both were delivered..... which is fantastic.

    I was suprised too.... I didnt take him for a dancer, at least not a good one.... *smile*

    more from this reviewer

    Loved the series. Loved the book.

    Great behind the scene view of how the series Crossing Over came to be. I loved (and miss) the TV series and loved this book as well. John Edward's writing was down-to-earth and understandable; like he was sitting across from me talking one-on-one.

    Everyone should read John Edward!

    John answers the question we all have asked - what's next? Many of us have had 'visits' or phychic experiences, but until John's popularity, were afraid to discuss them. Now, more than ever we need to explore the spiritual side of our lives. John's personality makes this book easy to read. I read it practically cover to cover and will be ordering his tapes as well.

    Not the Book I Was Hoping

    This book is mildly entertaining if you are already a John Edward fan. It mostly deals with getting the t.v. show started; and is a frustrating read, because it skips back and forth constantly. Did provide a few insights into the man, but not to the degree I was hoping.

    20-questions

    John Edward has made a career of playing 20-questions with the bereaved. He uses cold-reading to guess just enough details to make it seem he has a connection to the deceased, but if you really pay attention he gets wrong more than he gets right.

    The book is $1.99 too much.

    Too Dry - Try Tiffany Snow or Sylvia Browne

    John is a good writer, and communicates well on this side besides the other side! What I think is lacking is a broader scope of experiences. What other authors, like Tiffany Snow and Sylvia Browne are doing, is touching many aspects and challenging the reader to do the same, BESIDES telling the personal experiences. Too often, John just tells his own stories, which are entertaining, but limited. But, this book I like better than his other one, 'after life,' which is more of the same and even dryer than this one.

    Entertaining Reading

    John is a very charismatic individual on television and this comes across also in the book. He truly cares about his gift and his purpose to relay messages to those that are still on 'this side'. Every chapter is engaging, witty and heartfelt.

    Enlightening!!!

    I have never read nor heard of John Edward before now. My Mother-In-Law, who lost her husband a little over a year ago, was given this book for Christmas. I have always felt that no matter where I was that those I have lost could hear me if I spoke to them. Or at least I liked believing that. This book was wonderful. Many of the people and events described was very enlightening. I started reading it and finished it in 1 1/2 days.

    The Boy's Were Right!

    There is no doubt in my mind that John knows what he is talking about. After reading this book I understand that an open mind is all you need. I watched his show before I read the book and I did believe him... but now I also do not have a closed mind about other mediums. If you doubt mediums at all just read this book!
