Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Just a reminder, there is no radio show tonight. Also, our regular bloggers Lisa Grace, Mark Hunneman, and Stephen Piersall won't have blogs for us due to the holiday weekend.
I reviewed a copy of Theresa Caputo's book There's More to Life Than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight About the Other Side from the Long Island Medium. Aside from the endless and meaningless title, was it as bad as I thought it would be? Yes.
I posted my review on Amazon and to save you a trip over there here is the review in its entirety.
You'll find more wisdom in the bottom of a Jack Daniel's bottle
I was a part of the new age in the 1980s and worked as a psychic-medium for several years, so I think I'm in a position to offer a unique perspective of Theresa Caputo's book. I'd like to point out it was also written by her teacher, Pat Longo. Kristina Grish, the credited co-author, was brought in to make sure the manuscript got that Long Island phraseology.
Just like Caputo's reality show, the book is nothing more than a scam to suck in the sad and the hurting. Theresa and Pat make grandiose claims yet offer no proof that any of these claims are real--because they can't. This book consists of catch phrases popular within the new age movement. "Everyone has intuition!" "Everyone can communicate with spirit!" Theresa should feel guilty for referring to herself as a "good Catholic girl" as the content of the book is 100% contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Two examples: Catholics don't believe in reincarnation, and they don't believe in consulting mediums. Nor would anyone with any genuine wisdom and insight choose to plunk down hundreds of dollars [and wait for months or even years] to consult a medium. Especially when God and Jesus Christ don't charge any money and are always there.
The biggest problem with this fantasy book is the gullible readers who believe what this Long Island housewife says. What happens when they die and come to find out that the life Theresa and Pat rhapsodized about on the Other Side is a lie? Sadly, it's too late to ask for a refund.
