Editorial Reviews (from Amazon.com)
"Allison is an engaging and inspirational young woman -- her gifts are exceptional and I count myself privileged both to work with her and to call her friend."
-- Kelsey Grammer, star of the hit TV series Frasier, Executive Producer of the NBC television series Medium
"I have been fortunate enough to work side by side with Allison as a research medium. She is accurate, compassionate, and full of integrity -- in a word, brilliant."
-- Laurie Campbell, Director, Research Mediums Committee, Human Energy Systems Laboratory
"Allison DuBois is a gifted medium who has dazzled us and our audience. She's been referred to as 'the Michael Jordan of mediums' and has proven to be worthy of that distinction. Her book is compassionate and poignant. A must-read for anyone who's struggling to understand the mystery of death and the afterlife."
--Chad Lewis and Terry Fisk, hosts of the radio talk show The Unexplained and authors of the Road Guide to Haunted Locations books
"Allison's greatest strength is her ability to balance equally within herself the qualities of love and compassion with those of courage and tenacity. In laboratory research readings, both the specificity and the accuracy of the information she conveys are repeatedly remarkable."
--Dr. Julie Beischel, PH.D., Assistant Director, The Veritas Research Program
FROM THE PUBLISHER (Barnes and Noble Website)
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.

I really enjoyed this. Allison has a really interesting life and survived a difficult childhood, dealing with her gift.
The book could have used a bit more editing, nothing major, just some minor grammatical or typing errors that were missed.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Posted to amberC - the first participant in the bookray.
thankyou for the calendar. it's lovely to look through it and see some of my favourite places.
She has had a variety of experiences using her abilities.
Do i believe she is psychic? not sure but she is convincing.
posting to MadamMuck today.
I still loved finding out more about this gift and really enjoyed the chapter from her husband, a brief insight into living with someone with this gift.
Interestingly, after seeing me reading this book, my son (15 year old) told me of some psychic experiences he has had. He was relieved that I was willing to listen to him, and not just put it down to imagination or something. I'm encouraging him to explore the psychic world. So, if nothing else, this bookray has helped one young man feel more comfortable about psychic abilities. Thanks so much for the chance to read this book, now I've got a good idea of how to help my son accept any special talents he has.

thanks for the chance to read it! off to pm Hearth-crafter now :o)
I've had some experiences myself, mainly via dreams. One in particular I try not to dwell on, however reading this had made the experience even more depressing because it's seem I may have received it to intervene. But back then I didn't realise the significance. Won't happen again ...
Off to c-a-m today.
Ive been in hospital with pancreatitis for the last 6 days.
Sorry there was no way i could journal it recently.
Will send it off ASAP

Still good to read about a real psychic and her role in helping people. Thanks aussieange2 for sharing.
I've always been interested in psychic phenomenon, after life etc so found this book to be very interesting. More example stories would have been great, but over all I found Allison's book to be an interesting read. I have her other book 'We Are Their Heaven', and 'Your Inate Psychic Powers' (different author) both on my TBR list for a day I have no bookrings to read.
Thanks aussieangel2 for including me. On it's way to wirigerie now.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
On it's way to wirigerie - next reader on this bookray. Enjoy :o)
Both my girlfriend (kitten70) and I are looking forward to reading this!
Passed on to kitten70 by hand.
I disagree with the Foreword's description of the book as "warm". It seemed much more clincal and unemotional, more a logical presentation of the facts as she sees them. As a result I found it difficult to engage with. It didn't hold my interest very much at all.
Dubois' black and white viewpoint on people discouraged me too.
All in all, it made me think about some of my misconceptions but was hardly a fascinating read. As to the question of whether I believe or not... well some of the phenomenon fits in with experiences had by my boyfriend and his family. However just reading the book wouldn't have convinced me. I'd be much more interested in reading some of Gary Schwartz' research.
Overall a good read!
Now, where to on the next part of its journey???
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Have started reading already and will be happy to post on once I've finished.
Thanks aussieangel2 for starting things.
I have just finished reading this book, and have to say I have really enjoyed it. It is a good insight into the world of the medium.
While only the viewpoint of one medium is available, that is the same with any other book you might read. So agree or disagree with her it's your choice as a reader.
I agree that it is aimed at young mediums, but it also gives an insight to anyone curious about this topic and leaves you to make your own choices.
At least that's how I took it with my open-minded attitude.
Definately worth the time if you have an interest in the field, skeptics will probably still be skeptics, but hey read it anyway.
I am SO sorry that I kept it for so long. I think I have overcommitted myself with some book rings *blush*
I'm a fan of the show "Medium" and found it hard not visualising the show's characters. I agree that she emphasised the "fake psychics" a bit too much. I'm till a bit of a sceptic but I haven't experienced the appearance of someone from the "other side" so till then, I think it's a matter of "I'll believe it when I see it"
Am posting onto gabbysmum.
Thank you for giving me the chance to read this.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Now on its way to the next on the list
5.1.2014 I read the book already a month ago (at last), but I'm behind making journal entries of the books I've read (once again). I've liked the series "Medium", so I expected the book to tell about Dubois's experiences. But like others have mentioned before, it was more of a guidebook to other mediums. Yet it was interesting enough. What bothered me a bit was Dubois's attitude sometimes - everything was either black or white/good or bad. It's not what kind of picture you get from her from the series. I'm no believer in afterlife at all, but these kind of things are interesting to ponder about.
This book is reserved to someone, who has wished for it.
