Book Description

Aug. 5 2002
Crossing Over takes fans through the extraordinary journey that has been John Edward's life since One Last Time was published in 1998. It delves into the highs and lows that he has experienced in his role as a psychic medium, the powerful stories of the people he has encountered (and the spirits that have accompanied them) and how he has made his own transition into international celebrity while trying to bring peace and insight to those who grieve for their loved ones.

Product Description

From Amazon

Crossing Over reads like a casual conversation with an old childhood pal instead of like a memoir of a world-renowned psychic who has his own talk show on the Sci Fi channel. John Edward's narrative is down-to-earth and filled with vernacular expressions (including plenty of instances of "holy shit!"). There's the story of how his deceased mother finally gave him the three signs he hoped for after she died, and how he once contacted the recently departed songwriter Carl Perkins. Most of the time, Edward speaks about how the process of consulting with a psychic brings peace and reconciliation to those left behind--standard fare for medium memoirs. As compelling as Edward's stories are, what makes this memoir unique is how readily Edward exposes his own vanities and ego bruisings. He also delves into the behind-the-scenes reality of being a television medium. For instance, he reveals how his producers wanted to have dead-people "theme shows"--for instance inviting grieving members of Mother Against Drunk Driving to be the audience. This kind of "gallery rigging" goes against Edward's desire to enter readings without any prior knowledge of the person seated before him. Edward offers an amusing, and at times disturbing, look at how the ethereal world clashes with the celebrity world. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars How Crossing Over with John Edward was born May 16 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book talks mainly about how Crossing Over with John Edward came to be. Although interesting, I had hoped for more afterlife experiences shared from the show and a more in depth explanation of the process. Perhaps he has written another book that focuses more on this?? I will definitely be ordering more of his books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected July 29 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book seems as though it was designed to follow his other books and earn some extra cash. All it really talks about is how he got famous. What I really wanted to know was the stories of people that crossed over and what that experience is like.

Bough another one of his books that I haven't yet started reading. Hopefully it is better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crossing Over Aug. 10 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to read. Having lost a son recently, I was looking for consolation/ explanation and reassurance. This book is more about John Edwards life-story and how he had to struggle to have a TV show. So not really the reassurance I was looking for- except for the part where his deceased mother actually sends him signs from the afterlife.

Format:Hardcover
John is a good writer, and communicates well on this side besides the other side! What I think is lacking is a broader scope of experiences. What other authors, like Tiffany Snow and Sylvia Browne are doing, is touching many aspects and challenging the reader to do the same, BESIDES telling the personal experiences. Too often, John just tells his own stories, which are entertaining, but limited. But, this book I like better than his other one, "after life," which is more of the same and even dryer than this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Edward... March 28 2004
Format:Hardcover
This is another book by medium John Edward that entertains the reader and will confound the skeptics. Again, Edward relates many experiences that will leave the believer enlightened and the skeptic dumbfounded. This book is highly recommended. The only reason I did not give it five stars was because I was bored by the talk about the development of his TV show. Regardless, you will enjoy this book!
