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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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*

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.

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.

Networking With People & Spirits - I have to say first of all, that this man gives credit where credit is due and to whom it is due. He clearly respects those who have helped him on his journey as a psychic medium and acknowledges their input onto his path. John is a very honorable man and it shows in the book - how he wouldn’t back down from his gut feelings, his ethics, his beliefs and his own set of life’s rules to become something other than what he is today. He stood steadfast and that is truly commendable. He also had ongoing help from “The Boys” as he calls his Spirit Guides. Great back-up team !!! I like the way he writes about his life, all the polite swearing when he is upset or strongly mad over something and the stories…so many beautiful stories…of the lives he has become involved with – those who have passed and those still living. I also like the little anecdotes that he instills in his book giving one cause to smile while reading. I understand that John, as well as many other psychics, mediums, etc. in the metaphysical world like to tell us about their backgrounds growing up; however, I do not feel the need to put any strong emphasis on whether or not they have degrees in this, that or the other thing. It does not impress me and you don’t need a degree to do this work. Now the ballroom dancing that John does occasionally with his wife…now that I would like to see !!! It’s a whole other side to this gentleman who has been given a gift of conversing with spirits. Another way of working up the energy….or working it off. If there is just one chapter in this book which I would like to specifically point out to you, it would be Chapter 6 – Debbie’s Daddy. It is so intertwined with people, instances, happenings, validations, etc. – so much so that you are totally immersed in the whole storyline with the word “WOW” constantly being repeated by you throughout the chapter. This was another very well written book by John Edward and I high recommend it.
