The real thing
The experience of hearing Allison DuBois, the psychic vs the author, is defintely a push-pull experience, as this audiobook serves well to demonstrate. While (judging from this audiobook) I cannot describe DuBois as articulately gifted (as a writer OR speaker) her more exalted gifts come across loud and clear: she appears a sincere and sensitive human window to the "other world". I enjoyed listening to her case studies and views of spirituality (and spiritualism)and also came to appreciate a certain lack of pretension in her personal style that many other mainstream psychics (such as Sylvia Brown) have long since either lost or never had in the first place. Imperfect, but also inspiring and occasionally even a goose-bumper, I enjoyed this audio book -- and I'll look forward to her next.

Sometimes self proving, often sweet
I have to say that I was expecting something different from this book. I don't read or listen to many titles of this genre but of course, being a fan of the TV show Medium, I was curious. When I couple that with my recent loss of a parent, I felt very happy in purchasing this audio book. There are many stories of readings in this book categorized quite well - death of a child, Medium episode truths and fictions, loss of a parent etc. Along the way Allison does spend time proving that she is a bonefide medium able to speak with the dead yet notes her frustration when she discovers her inability to readily to contact her own loved one who had passed.
I think that Allison's charm stands out in her ability to empathize with so many people in so many grief situations. Her readings are explained usually by the subject first and then by Allison herself. I found this format to be something other than what I expected still quite interesting and emotional.
I agree with the previous reviewer in that she lacks the "been there done that/seen it all" or "know it all" tone of other people who profess to speak with the deceased (Sylvia Browne - perfect example, I'd throw John Edward into that). I am skeptical about most "mediums" who make a profit from their "gift". That being said, there is something so genuine and warm about Allison I cannot help but feel she is the real thing.
Again, she does spend alot of time validating that she really IS a valid medium that can contact the deceased and actually "bring them through". Other than this, I think the book is charming, enlightening and can say it had a strong emotional resonance with me throughout my listen.
This was a few hours and a few dollars quite well spent.
