    This book literally change my life and my faith. I was 21 when I first read this book on a whim. I was browsing the book isle while waiting on pictures to be developed at wallgreens when I saw this book and had remembered hearing about Sylvia Browne on TV and thought I would check it out. I have change my belief systems many times over. I have been Baptist, Non-denominational, Wiccan, Buddhist and a few others. I have always been fascinated with death and life after death and searching for the one religion and faith that had all the answers. I don't think we are meant to know all the answers, but Sylvia Browne seems to have more than most others. Sylvia even admits that she is not always 100% right. No psychic ever is. So it makes me sad when people give her such a hard time when she has been wrong in the past. She stats in more than one of her books that her accuracy is not always right, but most of the time she is. The best thing about this book is you don't have to be religious to enjoy and find comfort in it. After reading the first few chapters I was hooked! I have been following her and her spiritual teachings now for 13 years and am a member of Novus Spiritus. I have attended two of Sylvia Browne's seminars live twice while I lived in AZ. I own almost all of her books and have been involved in her study groups. I am currently working towards becoming a ordained minister through her church. This book is amazing and it will bring you the peace you need in your life.

    One of my elderly woman brought this book from the library, gave it to me, and told me to read it out loud to her.. next thing you know, over the time frame of 3 days, I have a group of people around me listening and we had very good conversation about this today. Yes.. it was a little heated at times because you have so many people and so many opinions, but all in all this was a great book. They really enjoyed it and so did I.. if not for what the book was about, then atleast for the fact that it gave elderly people whom are closer to death and what possibly comes after it than a lot of us reading this, a chance to really think and use their brains for more than BINGO. They talked about their own experiences, the things they have seen and/or felt when someone has passed in the room.. the things they have heard others say in the hours leading up to their deaths.. This book had everyone thinking and I honestly believe that is what it was put in my hands to do.

    I am writing this review now 11 years later and to this day I live my life based on the beliefs Sylvia Browne has laid out in this book.I read this book back in 2001 just after the loss of our daughter Victoria. It helped me a lot to understand the other side (Heaven) and why everything happens for a reason and how we choose our life before we come to this life or the body.I will add to this review again after I read the book again.I highly recommend this book to anyone that has lost a loved one. If you can believe in Sylvia it may heal your wounded heart as it did with mine.

    This woman is apparently surrounded by controversy and a lot of people say she is a fraud, and of course she herself claims to be a true psychic. I don't know what to believe, to be honest, but the truth is i'm enjoying this book regardless. What's important to me isn't so much wether she really did and have seen all the things she says she did, or if they come true, I still find it an interesting read, and i like the overall messages in the book.I definately think it's good to be skeptic about these kind of things and not to take anyone elses claims for granted, whatever they say and whoever they are. Don't let yourself be led blindly by anyone. Think, feel and live for yourself and stay true to your own convictions.It just so happens that I believe a lot of the same things as Sylvia believes, and her being a fraud or a 'true' psychic doesn't make what i believe any more or less true.

    Not everyone believes that Sylvia browne is a true Physic, me.. i dont know what i believe but i do know this Parts of this book rang true to me as it supported a few experiences that i have had, If your not a fan of Sylvia browne thats ok you dont have to be this is not a book of perdictions or anything truely Physic its is more or less a book about the other side told by those who believe they have seen it themselves

    As with any spiritual book, you take from it what you desire to know. I met Sylvia Brown before she became famous when I was 19 years old. I can attest to her amazing gifts. That being said, nothing is constant and predictions should be taken with a grain of salt. You are the creator of your path in life. If you are curious to matters beyond the physical existence, this is a great insight to those possibilities.

    Even if I have some different perspectives regarding some of the subjects, it is a good book in as much it encourages people to be positive, have the courage to search for their own truth and not to put themselves under any external influence that may take away their dignity and well being. It is certainly written by someone who is filled with good "vibes" and I enjoyed reading it.Maria CarmoLisbon 15th. August 2012.

    I thought The Church of Scientology was ridiculous until I read this book. I have a very open mind and was looking into a lot of spiritual based books to give me insight after the death of a good friend which I did not find through the pages of this book.Browns' “ideas” are so out there, they are ridiculous and demented! It is no surprise she appears on daytime talk shows. This book is meant for people who enjoy Jerry Springer and other trashy TV programs. Brown tells us that “the other side” is a dimension exactly three feet off the ground where we live with dinosaurs and mystic creatures, all spirits are 30 years old and can change gender/race/clothes with the blink of an eye. Time on the “other side” is spent living in a variety of homes, cruising around in hover carts, going to cocktail parties, concerts, art exhibits and lectures, all the while trying to decide if and when they should "re-visit" Earth for another incarnation.Although I found this book in the New Age section Brown is trying to market the book as non-fiction when it is nothing but a fairytale. After reading a few chapters I tossed the book in shame because I would be humiliated if anyone saw this trash on my bookshelf.

    After going through a crisis of faith, I was sure that psychics could help restore my faith in the divine. After buying several of her books and reading them I was completely convinced that she would make a wonderful fiction writer. She has no talents. After reading her biography and reviews of her 'psychic' sessions I realized she was a complete fraud. Her ideas are absolutely looney. If she believes half of what she writes she's a nut.

    This is my second book I've read by Sylvia Browne. The first one I read was solely about reincarnation and near-death. That was really good and it reaffirmed my belief in reincarnation and spirit guides, so I've always been interested in Sylvia Browne's work since that book. Reece found this for me recently and I'm glad she did.In this book she does talk a bit about spirit guides and reincarnation, but she mainly focuses on the "Other side" which is a form of heaven, but not your a-typical heaven with clouds and harps. Bleurgh. Who wants that? BORING. She talks about how the Other Side is much more in-tune in your interests and so forth. It is also on Earth, but its considered a different dimension. Better then the old tales of heaven and I can get behind something that doesn't involve me being naked on a cloud playing a harp. *nods*She also does talk about talking the dead, ghosts, angels, and even the future. I've had my far share of ghostie encounters, but as for the future? I can't take her serious. No one can predict the future in my mind. Maybe you can predict a general thing that is set in stone, but I don't know if if "God" or whoever would curse anyone with that knowledge.'s like reading the end of a book. Leave well enough alone.Now I have of course had my future told to me from many different psychics. They've been 20% right. I also do divination cards and tarot cards to give me direction or help or whatever (they've been more right then psychics), so I believe in those more so. However, the future is too fickle in my mind. Now...reading the past is more set in stone. I totally believe in reincarnation and all that stuff, because I've experienced a couple of my past lives through regression. Its spooky and explains a lot about why I am the way I am. It also explains why I am here and trying to "better myself". I won't go into details about my stories, because I am shy and I don't really want people too know that. I rarely have told any friends or my parents (I oddly feel embarrassed and I don't want people to look at me like I am crazy - I know, I know.....I should not be ashamed in my beliefs). This was a quick read and it was interesting. Do I believe in everything Sylvia Browne says? Hell no. Do I believe in some of it? Yes, but I've experienced some it and I'm a "have to see it to believe it" type of gal. THUS why I don't believe in aliens completely, because I have not had an experience with an alien or UFO or whatever. I do recommend this to those with an open-mind. It's an interesting belief on the world. Is it any more crazy then any other religious theories? Nope. Some of it makes sense, some of it seems out of this world. Out of five stars, I stamp this with 4 stars. More like 3.5 stars, but I rounded.

    I like Sylvia's style of writing. She is witty and interjects with many amusing things. Sometimes I find myself laughing out loud.I am currently reading this book and find it fascinating. For me it's an exploration which I remember to take with a grain-of-salt but I can't help but think it all make sense. And thoughts that I had before... are coalescing together. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to study spirituality and work on it.This book was witty, quick, and smart. It really urges one to trust in their higher power and offers so much insight!

    With her super natural abilities she tells what happens when you die. You might not believe but she makes a skeptic change there mind. Her books are very informing and leaves you only wanting more. If your not sure pick up the book read a few pages and you just might change your view. she is a very intelligent women who has knowledge to share even if you don't believe in what she does it doesn't hurt to expand your knowledge.

    I really need to read a few more of her books. This one fascinated me! I think my (by far) favorite part was when she explains how our children choose us. I was so overwhelmed with this idea that I immediately went to my son and put my arms around him in a hug and told him "Thank you for choosing me as your mother."

    Great intro and reference book to The Other Side. Covers the basics of metaphysical/spiritual concepts. Sort of reminded me of the 'Handbook for the Recently Deceased' in Beetlejuice. Looking forward to reading 'Life on the Other Side.'

    This book has helped me so much. When I read any of her books she makes me feel so positive about life. I've learned to worry less and look at death as another adventure and not the end.

    As I read this book, I kept comparing the thoughts of this psychic and author, Sylvia Browne, with Lorna Byrne, the author that can see angels. Lorna talks about our guardian angels, where Sylvia says we have a "spirit guide." Lorna seems to have more of a spiritualness about her, while Sylvia just wants to tell us all about her psychic readings and visions. Most of Sylvia's book really to me was telling us how to live a happy life, and be positive. I got very curious as to how Sylvia Browne passed away, but I couldn't find any indication as to a cause of death on the internet. I don't understand why her family would keep it a secret since she was a pretty popular public figure. Searching more online, it became more apparent that many people thought Sylvia to be a fraud since many of her predictions did not come true or were wrong. My "favorite" prediction was aliens will begin allowing themselves to be seen on earth in 2010. Has anyone seen an alien or do I have to watch the Syfy network for that? Well all I can say is this woman seemed very nice, was surprisingly a Catholic school teacher, and seems to have a very vivid imagination. May she rest in peace and hopefully she is in a better place.

    I read this book for a paper I was writing in college on psychics. It was extremely interesting whether you believe her or not or in afterlife itself. The extremely detailed and discriptive way she speaks of angels, ghosts, our spirit guides etc. is very interesting and really makes you think and wonder about all the things that might be out there.

    This was interesting and a lot of it was really nice to think about, but I still feel skeptical. But, I think that's okay though! Despite my skepticism it was still an interesting read and I would recommend it to others wanting to learn more about the different "afterlives."

    A beautiful book that gave me so many answers I didn't even know I was looking for- but my soul did. I haven't read these books in so long and have found I wish I still had them. I've read nearly all of her books cover to cover and then would use as reference. Sometimes it just helps to read a section or two of other people's experiences to know you're not alone or just if you need your spirits lifted. This book changed me and once I read it. As Sylvia always said, "take what you want and leave the rest", you don't have to believe blindly, she never intended that. But some things will just click.

    Another amazing book about the other side (life after death). I've read this book 3 times and still want to read it again. Highly recommend to those curious about the afterlife or to find comfort in their grief.

    An interesting concept of the afterlife that parallels in some ways to what I've experienced. Not sure how credible, but certainly tantalizingly specific food for thought.

    "The Other Side And Back", 1999, is an important book to any faith. Sylvia Browne insisted on substantiating spiritual details she received, with research. Banish any bias conjured by the word "psychic". This discusses everyday topics and some Heavenly questions we were keen to have answered. Sylvia consulted for a living but accepted no money for missing persons and refused a "psychic hotline". Our impressions of well known personages should not derive from hearsay. Read this book.Largely autobiographical, we learn Sylvia Shoemaker was the apple of her Dad's eye, mistreated by a dark-spirited Mother, and oddly; inherited second-sight from her maternal Grandmother. She found the courage to flee an abusive husband with her two sons. Those personal experiences are enough to connect with many people. Anyone religious-minded, leery of this book, should know she grew up Protestant and catholic and was a convent schoolteacher. No matter how surreal Sylvia's books might feel, to those who are new to peeking outside the box of what we've called "normal"; they are all about God. God outside of religion reassuringly reflects my beliefs!Imagine that we started as spirits and blueprinted an educational mission: these Earthly lives we are leading. This is a better explanation for sorrow, than wondering if God was unfair; like a cat we love so much, dying at only 4 years-old! Our physical state doesn't recall what we mapped, or any expedition would be mute. We affect some outcomes. We are not programmed. Although physical separation grieves us because contact is not the same, loved-ones are not inaccessible to us. The most helpful portion to me are Sylvia's hilarious, no-nonsense, surprisingly logical rebuttals to scoffers of our beliefs and intelligence! Low reviews you come across? Scoffers. *This* is the book that would sustain me on a deserted island.

    Since I was a child, I always liked Sylvia. I always vibed with what she was saying. The first time I read one of her books was last summer sometime. I liked most of that book, and flew through it. I have to say her writing style is very simple and easy to read, so even though I'm a slow reader, I can get through it quickly. This book took me a little longer to get through, and at times it felt like a chore. (I don't like reading to feel like a chore!) There were quite a few anecdotes in this book that were in her other book, so I wasn't as interested in reading them this time around. Also, there were chapters of the book that I didn't enjoy reading. There was a section on abusive relationships that took me a while to get through because I didn't find it relevant to my life at this point. I found that I disagreed with more of this book than the other book of her's that I read. The chapter on the "dark side" was very difficult for me to get through. I feel like in this book, Sylvia is coming from a more Christian place than I have experienced before. I previously thought that she was somewhere in the middle between Christianity and New Age/ Pagan beliefs. In this book she seemed much more slanted toward Christianity. That's fine, but doesn't resonate with me. I don't adhere to the belief in a constant battle between "light" and "dark." Over all, I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it either. I will probably give Sylvia's books another shot, but she may not be for me anymore.

    My fiancé asked me to read this book because she felt that it had helped her with her life and that it would do the same for me. I had seen Sylvia on Montel many times back in the day and thought to myself “what a crock”. Unfortunately, this held true for this book as well. For a while she had me going, thinking that she truly believed what she was saying, until I got to the end where she makes her predictions for the new millennium. None of which have come true by 2013, and just reaffirmed my belief that NOTHING happens when you die. Your body decays and you, your spirit or whatever dies with it. There is nothing after you die, there is no conscious anything, and it’s OVER. I really feel bad that there are people out there like Sylvia taking advantage of others hope (and to a certain extent their money, hey, someone paid for the book, right?)

    Getting a glimpse into another realm of our experience here is a gift. Not only is there information in this book about life after death but it touches on many other areas we can learn from with regard to our personal power, how we treat each other, what our goals are and purposes is here on Earth. Anyone on a spiritual quest has something to learn from this book about their personal identity with the constant ping reminding us to let ourselves truly live and appreciate each day for what it is, not allowing fear to run our emotions and thus our lives.

    Some of what she says rings true. But, over all, I think she is full of herself, an attention seeker and not as fully devoted to helping people as she claims to be. Some of what she says is insightful and thought provoking. The rest of it just sounds like it's made up. I am very wary of her. I like James Van Praugh better.. People who use their intuitive gifts mainly for profit make me skeptical.

    This was the first book I read by Sylvia Browne, and I remember I stayed up all night reading it, because I had to finish the entire thing. The next day, despite only an hour or two of sleep, I felt better than I ever had. I'd found something that rang true for me, that confirmed so many of my own personal beliefs, and gave me comfort. That's a nice way to feel regardless of what one does or does not believe.

    She has some wise words about life, and dealing with it's struggles! Is she psychic, and everything she claims to be? I can't say, but I can say this has been a very interesting read..and has hit many parts of my life dead on! Pretty disappointed that she predicted aliens would be here in 2010, and as far as I know THAT never happened! Lol!! ;) In the end she is very inspirational, so if you're looking for that and have an open mind.. This book is for you!
