We followed the ups and downs of their lives in the media. We know about their mistakes, their struggles, and their joys. But have you ever wondered how celebrities and public figures would reflect on their lives since they passed? In an unprecedented reading experience, Conversations with History sheds some light. Channeled by a psychic medium and written in interview format, this book takes readers on a unique journey with 22 spirits who were famous (or infamous) during their time on earth. Renowned personalities from 600 b.c. to 2011 a.d.—from Charlemagne, Ben Franklin, and Gandhi to Walt Disney, Kurt Vonnegut, and Steve Jobs—have returned to share their most important messages with us. Their passing led them to understand their life lessons and the ramifications of their choices. And now, with the clear-eyed vision gained only from the Other Side, they’re taking center stage one last time to offer us insights into their lives that they didn’t possess while they were here. These famous spirits open up to share the lessons they’ve learned since their passing in order to help us live our lives better—lessons in abundance and prosperity, love and relationships, creativity and art, personal responsibility for the world around us, and the legacy we will leave for future generations. In every interview, there are simple but powerful lessons that readers can use to improve their lives every day.

Conversations with History by Susan Lander is a quick read that’s frame story is quite intriguing and the reason I decided to give it a whirl.  Susan is a medium that ‘interviewed’ deceased but famous and notable personalities in history.  The book includes twenty-two interviews from an array of personalities.  Everyone from King Charlemagne to Ben Franklin to Albert Einstein to Patrick Swayze and more.  The cast of characters is quite impressive, and just as these personalities held our attention in life, so shall they in death. Each spirit had their own chapter with a brief synopsis of what is historically known of their lives, along with notes at the end of each chapter detailing where additional information about each person could be found.  Those being interviewed had a definite reason for participating in the book and a very specific message that they wished to convey.  Some of the lessons felt as if they were included in the book just for me, while other not-so-personal messages spoke to our society as a whole. Many of the interviewees shared interesting tidbits of information about their lives that weren’t previously known about them.  I felt like this added in just a little something extra for the reader. I have to say that while the writing style was a bit basic for me, I understood the necessity for the format and was able to overlook it as the material being shared was very intriguiging. The messages at the heart of each interview were quite poignant and applicable in not only my own life, but also for our society as a whole.   Overall, I enjoyed the book.  I felt that it served as a personal affirmation for me regarding recent thoughts and ideas that I have been exploring and the synchronicity of this book showing up in my world was not missed.  I would definitely recommend this book to others interested in similar topics.
