Some of it was kind of intellectual, but in general I thought this was a good book on ways to understand the afterlife, and ghosts and such. I would recommend some others too, "Psychic Gifts in the Christian Life - Tools to Connect" by Tiffany Snow, tells some things about "energy tracings" and "fallen angels" as well as some new things about angels about how to see them, how to send them "to the light" (both ghosts and fallen angels/demons), along with a lot of unique and sometimes funny stories. Also, "Ghosts at my Back Door - and in the Living Room!" by Angela Watkins is a good book, although it may be out of print here in the US. This is mostly stories, but from a ghost hunter who has a lot of experiences, both frightening and funny, and also how to "expel" or "exorcise" them (so does Snow's book, a part on exorcism of dark spirits, behind the glossary). Sylvia's book is OK, but it isn't the complete "Bible" on ghosts, hauntings, etc. It's good enough to add to your collection, though.

Some of it was kind of b o r i n g, but in general I thought this was a good book on ways to understand the afterlife, and ghosts and such. There were some good stories, but too few. I would recommend (2) other books, "Psychic Gifts in the Christian Life - Tools to Connect" by Tiffany Snow, tells some things, and differences, about "energy tracings" ghosts, spirits, and "fallen angels" as well as some new things about how to try to see them, how to send them "to the light" (both ghosts and fallen angels/demons), along with a lot of unique and sometimes funny stories.

I have admired Sylvia from the moment I saw her on The Montel Williams Show. Just listening to her, you could tell that, indeed, she was "for real." She has stated in every book - or the vast majority of them - that she simply does not believe in pretending to feel something that's just not there. In this book, she stated that there are loads of film in production companies' wastebaskets with her saying, "Nope. Nothing here."
In this book, Sylvia explains the difference between ghosts and spirits. Ghosts are souls who do not realize they're dead or don't want to face that fact. Very often, they are seen on our level (eye-to-eye) because, technically, they are still on our plane. Spirits, on the other hand, are souls who have made it to the Other Side and visit us (they are seen, according to Sylvia, three feet higher because their dimension is higher than ours). Spirits do their part to warn us of impending danger, or some joyous event, or comfort us in times of deep grief and sorrow (many times, they visit us to let us know that they're alive and well on the Other Side and thinking of us).
She rehashes her favorite ghost stories and gives us updates on older ghost stories from previous books (for instance, Johnny Johnson in the Toys "R' Us, who is still exactly where he was all those years ago).
The one thing that makes Sylvia stand out is the fact that she encourages people to be skeptic about everything (she admits she's one of the world's biggest skeptics), including all matters psychic. A charlatan just wants you to believe everything, without question.
I enjoy and admire Sylvia's honesty, sarcasm, and sense of humor. She has done her small part to make me understand the meaning of life and the fact that, indeed, there is life after "death," and that life is eternal.

I find the content of this book highly questionable, mostly due to the alleged comments made by Elizabeth Short. The bulk of the comments were not anything you could not find out by doing a bit of research of your own.
But what gave it all away was the reference of TWO books written by people who place blame for Beth's death on their fathers. The reference was given PAST tense, even though these comments were allegedly made two years BEFORE the second book (Steven Hodel's BLACK DAHLIA AVENGER--don't bother).
Furthermore, reference was given to her "killer", Dr. Walter Bayley. The only problem with this is, of course, at the time of Beth's murder, Bayley was a senile old man; hardly someone with the cunning and precision this dreadful action took. And this was a suspect first introduced by LA Times reporter Larry Harnisch, who Browne openly acknowledges in the opening of her book.
Finally, if you want to ask her a question about it, well, guess what? According to her website, you have to make an appointment and pay her money first.
