I really enjoy her theories. I liked the book a lot and it gave me comfort as I recently had a loved one pass away. This book also has some humour. If you are open minded I would definitely recommend this book.

As her opening statement goes in this autobiography's first chapter - Self-proclaimed psychic, Sylvia Browne boldly states (*and I quote*) - "Before we come here from the "Other Side" to start a new incarnation... We choose our parents, our siblings, our enemies, our health issues, our best/worst qualities." (*end of quote*) - Yes, folks. According to Sylvia Browne, our choices are really as simple and premeditated as that.

Browne makes this utterly absurd statement as if it were, in fact, an absolute truth that no one (in their right mind) is permitted to challenge or rebuke in any way, shape, or form.

And, so - (With Browne's arrogantly blind words in mind) - I ask myself - If "we choose our health issues & best/worst qualities" as she so states - Does this mean that a person who's born physically deformed or mentally insane is, literally, choosing this sort of hell for themselves before birth!?... (Oh? Really!?)... And, what about suicide?... Did this person choose to kill themselves before they were born?.... (Like - Hello!?)

Anyway - On that one damning point, alone, I have no choice here but to completely dismiss the absolutely deluded Browne (and her apparent "psychic" abilities) as being totally fraudulent and, yes, not worthy of earning my attention in the least.... And, that's that!!
