From the Back Cover
In this engaging exploration of the past lives of some of our most beloved celebrities, world-renowned psychic Sylvia Browne tells the story of more than fifty celebrities who have passed on and gives us details of the lives they led before their most recent one, and describes how those lives (some filled with joy, some with heartbreak and loss) shaped the celebrated people they became.
Previously Sylvia has written about what transpires after death, but now she explains what happens before birth. Who would have guessed that Amy Winehouse was once born to a homeless couple in Haiti and then sold into a wealthy family, or that Elizabeth Taylor lived forty-seven times before she became the famous star that we all adore?
Finally, Sylvia outlines a three-step plan so that you yourself can take a fascinating journey back and find out what you were doing in your past lives that helped make you the person that you are today!
About the Author

Bob Hope: Sylvia says one of the EARLIEST of Hope's 56 lives was in the 1700s (most recently he was born in 1903). Do the math: even if his earliest life she describes was ~ his 6th one, then that leaves 50 to cover in the next 200 years (that averages out to FOUR YEARS per incarnation). Did he spend countless lives dying as a child only too springboard back and forth again and again?
Also, she claims Dick Clark was greeted at Home by Elvis - but she states in a previous book (and on her radio show) that Elvis is already reincarnated - so could not have been at Home to say howdy to Dick 8 years later. Hmmmmm...didn't her editor read her previous books?
Is anyone besides me insulted at Sylvia's assumption that her readers lack the intelligence to question these inconsistencies?
For example, for the Karen Carpenter one, Sylvia claims, "It was very much to Karen Carpenter's credit that after becoming a highly respected performer and celebrity, she spoke out about her anorexia, which encouraged other celebrities to open up about their own eating disorders."
Um, no. Karen wanted to speak out about it, but died before she had the chance. It was Karen's DEATH that encouraged others to come out with their eating disorders. I think Sylvia misinterpreted this from Wikipedia. If that wasn't even right, how can I trust the rest of this book?
Now, this is coming from someone who actually does believe in reincarnation and the like... *when it can be fact-checked* (see Ian Stevenson, Jim Tucker, Carol Bowman, even Carl Sagan in "The Demon-Haunted World," and the like). I didn't used to believe in it, because I thought the "believers" were all hucksters like Sylvia. She gives actual researchers a bad name. From what I understand from previous reviews, maybe Sylvia used to be more accurate, but has "lost it" as she's allowed greed to take over, and I think this book is evidence of that (not to mention other reviews that have listed her iffy track record).
If you really want to read about the past lives of celebrities, for free, and fact-check them, I suggest the blog "Channeling Erik" if you're into this sort of thing. It's a much more enjoyable read, and greed-free.
