When boiled down to the essence, it's the story of one honest, self-aware man's sad disillusionment, on both a personal level and a more universal one. Not only does the author's own "guide" (supposedly the spirit of a woman with whom he had a relationship in a previous life and to whom he has become very attached over the course of three years of channeled communications) prove to be a fraud, but so does every single "guide" (some "attached" to members of the author's own channeling group, others "belonging to" mediums he meets in the course of his research) he investigates.
And yet, each of these so-called guides is clearly possessed of personal information about his or her "charge," as well as a wealth of background information that would substantiate the life each claims to have led - IF only the author could have located the associated birth, death, marriage, and/or military records for any of these entities. This exposure of these "guides" as hoaxers truly raises a lot of troubling questions, which the author is ultimately not afraid to face and then closely examine for readers' illumination and, perhaps, own disillusionment.
This book sheds a bright, clear, unbiased light on the channeling phenomenon and, in my opinion, presents strong evidence for its rejection as a genuine means of communication from the type of highly evolved and humankind-loving spiritual guides their channelers claim to be in contact with. As such, I believe it's simply invaluable.
From all the mediums and channelers books that I have read, He is the first one to revealed his misfortune with such so-called highter beings. Which brings us to think twice before calling entities and to trusting them at 100%.
This wonderful book brings us back to reality when being caught on the divine magic of communicating with the spiritworld that we all think is and makes us to doubt the safety of connecting with the otherside. We learn that practicing channeling and mediumship is not a game for unexperienced curious who wants to try calling their dead relatives and It should not be practice by anyone . On my part, I think that Joe Fisher' misadventure is only a side of the coin and that we should always have to questioning with who we are receiving messages from and be sure if the spirit is really hight evolute guide. Like here on earth, their is bad and good on the astral plane and it is like inviting a stranger to your home without knowing nothing about them.
If you are fascinated like me for psychics and mediums, I highly recommend this book. It will make you think and take caution on cunning earthbound spirits who are waiting to get you on their web.
