Don't Kiss Them Good-bye by Allison DuBois

"Death is a funny thing. It brings out the best and worst in people. It casts light on the truth and makes life blindingly clear."
Her visions have helped solve crimes; her instincts have helped find missing people; she can predict future events and sense your thoughts.
These are some of the extraordinary gifts that define the remarkable Allison DuBois, the real-life medium, wife, and mother whose life is the inspiration for the hit NBC television series Medium.
When she was six years old, Allison's deceased great-grandfather came to her with a message for her mother: "I am okay, I am still with you. Tell your mom there's no more pain." Allison shared his comforting words with her mother and thus began a lifetime of creating connections between loved ones and those they have lost. The purpose of her gifts became clearer when Allison worked as an intern in the homicide bureau of the district attorney's office and found that she visualized the crime as she handled the evidence. Allison now works as a profiler on criminal investigations.
In this stunning book, Allison shares fascinating stories of her encounters with people who have passed and her adventures as a profiler for various law enforcement organizations. With wit and compassion, Allison shows us what it is like to live with these special gifts and talents and also tells about her struggle to live a normal life as a devoted wife and mother. She shows how learning to accept her own gifts has helped her accept the unique gifts of others and how her compelling desire to relieve the pain of others has helped define her own life, a life committed to the search for ultimate truth.
If you have ever questioned whether there is an afterlife, this book will help you see that there is a living energy beyond death.

This book is for everyone, even the skeptic. This book validated my sensitivity to the other side's energy. My children also feel the energy. My grief is more managable from what I have read.

Though the television series based on the life of Allison DuBois is one of my favorite t.v. shows, I was very disappointed in this book. I found it overly repetitive and lacking in any kind of engaging content. Basically, it was just plain boring. She may well be gifted...but not at writing. Even the editing was weak as "typos" were plentiful, making this book even more of a struggle to finish. I've never been one ditch a book before I've finished it, so I was actually relieved when this one turned out to be less than 200 pages. Save your money and stick to the t.v. show.

This book was ok. I believe there are much better books written by mediums out there. The type was very big and spaced and it seemed to me as though they were trying to drag it out, so they didn't have a 50 page book.

You can tell by the writing style Ms. DuBois wrote this herself without intervention from a professional writer which makes it all the more real and convincing. I enjoyed reading about her experiences and explanations of why life ends early for some and not for others. And they are out there, no matter what your belief system this is hard to ignore.

Allison Dubois is a refreshingly enjoyable author and this was a great one-night read. She candidly speaks about what the world really needs to know about mediumship and human decency.

It is nice for people like Allison DuBois to give us a peek of what we don't see or feel, but what is real. There is no beginning and there is no end, it all continues. Open your mind with no fear and your heart will also know.

I've read this book and enjoyed it so much. I cna't tell you how much it helped me to read it. I loved the show on TV and thought I would read this book, since it was by person show is based on. I was not disappointed at all. I would read it again and recommend it to anyone. I will make sure to read anything she writes from now on.

I would really like to know what medications the person who wrote the last review was taking when they wrote it. This is an amazing book written by an amazing person who I look up to. I myself being sensitive, and also planing on writing a book, Allison Dubois is, to me, a person to look up to and ask many questions. This book will answer all of them... it answered mine.

The book was a little lightweight. I expected there to be more written about her psychic abilities than there was. She explains how to enhance your gift or your child's gift if you are lucky to have the power. For the most part, the book was about the fact that not all psychics are charlatans. Many psychics are good people wanting to help others and not bilk them out of money. I believe this was the real motive behind the book.

I read Don't Kiss Them Good-bye for a book report this is a great book book but she talks to much about what to do if you are a medium or if your child is a medium and for people that aren't mediums or don't have children that are Mediums that part can be boring I thought it would talk about her life more So its not good if you you where looking for a biography but otherwise its a great book.

When I found this book, I couldn't put it down. I lost my only brother at the tender age of 26 and this gave me reason to believe that he is alive in spirit. A wonderful read for people who are grieving. I now know for sure that there is life after death....

I loved the book because I have actually experienced a few of the same things that Allison discusses in the book. It proved to me that I wasn't just 'dreaming'. I think it's a great book for anyone who is 'on the fence' when it comes to the question Is there life after death? Easy & interesting reading.

I found this book to be absolutly inspiring and relaxing. I origionally picked it out because of my interest in the show Medium. I couldnt put it down from the minute i picked it up which is quite unusual for me.I had a cousin who died at a young age of 17 whom which i was very close with when i was very young, and have always had many questions about death and life after death ever since. But after reading this book by Dubois, it has given me not only answer many questions that i have had for a very long time, but also reassures me that there is a life after death and that your lost loved ones are watching over you.

I have carried the weight of the unexpected death of my mother for 15 years always thinking that if I had paid more attention to the signs she was giving me I could have saved her. In Allison's first chapter she made me see what I have always believed, except in the case of my Mother, that when it is your turn to go, you go. I now know that even if I had pushed her to see a doctor, she would have gone anyway. It was her turn. About two weeks before she passed on she told me that if she could get in touch with me after she died it would be through a number that was important in both our lives. I am pleased to tell you that she is in touch with me at least once a week and more often when each one of my Grandchildren were born. I think she is happy.

I found it moving and informative. The writing was personalized and it was an easy read. At times I found myself reading the book in Patricia Arquette's voice. If you have seen the tv show Medium, you'll know what I'm talking about. It's very easy to get lost in this book. As the headline states; I recommend this book for an afternoon or rainy weather read

This book is both very sad and very inspirational. The author, Allison DuBois, is the woman whose life formed the inspiration for the TV show <i>Medium</i> . This book explains how she came to realize her talent and how she came to use it for good. It contains several actual cases and readings she has worked on and is finished by a chapter about what it is like to live with a medium, written by her husband Joe. This is an excellent book that is an easy read, and it will have you run the full gamut of your emotions before you are through. Well worth picking up.

Allison DuBois is absolutley sick in the head. She is mean, spiteful and witchy with a capitol B. Look her up by searching for "Allison DuBois +realhousewives". Watch the episode with her in it and see how much you like her after she really reveals her true self. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS WOMAN in any way. Everything about her is tainted and dirty.
