Van Praagh's book will appeal primarily to those who already believe in psychic phenomena, but he works hard to make it both convincing and appealing. He grounds accounts of his psychic experiences with learning from many traditions and explains both terms and processes carefully. Barrett Whitener is a fine choice as narrator. His delivery combines the lucid clarity of a scholar with the gentle tones of an old friend. When he reads Van Praagh's stories of encounters with spirits, he enters into the spirit of them, often sounding as if these are his own personal experiences. Subtle shifts in tone communicate humility, surprise, and wonder, sometimes all at the same time. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 03]
