But if we are to believe that some of us can communicate with the dead; then what is being told in this book is wonderful. The anecdotes are about deceased ones wanting their living correspondents to be happy, to fulfill their dreams; get over all misunderstandings and faults and even their crimes.
They are reaching out to help their loved ones to make the right choices and protect them. They want people to realize their short-comings I am a scientist and I find all of this very hard to believe. They want people to realize their short-comings before they pass to the other side, because apparently what you have here continues over there unless you understand and correct yourself. The book focuses on the well known theme of 'nothing is what it seems and everything happens for a reason'. It also hints that one can change all the negative experiences to have positive outcomes, and suggests that actually is the idea behind all bad experiences for people on both sides.
This was an interesting book that may help heal the saddness of having lost a loved one and encourage a brighter perspective for pessimists. View all 4 comments.

You know how some people scan the Bible for inspiration? Or read their favorite quotations? THIS is that book for me. Certain passages rang out to me with truth. James Von Praagh isn't preachy, or irritatingly positive, or condescending. He takes what he believes, condenses it into a book, and lets you decide. He doesn't seem terribly concerned with your opinion of his ideas, but he's putting them out there in hopes that they'll help someone. I know that this book has changed the way I think about life. It's also an entertaining read, unlike most of these types of books.
Reading it cannot hurt, and I can almost guarantee that it will help. Jul 19, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: life-after-death. I like to believe that James Van Praagh can really see the spirits of people who have died physically. When I read this book, I am persuaded that he does.
Part of the persuasion is that his message is so positive.

He is continually advising the reader to make amends for past mistakes, forgive wrongs, and understand that our thoughts create our realities.

He is so good at explaining the power of our own thoughts and that we can change the experience of our lives through the choices we make about how we will think about and react to life. As a result of reading this book, I've resolved anew to be more aware of my thought patterns and to stop short when I find myself awfulizing about things with negative or worrisome or depressing thoughts.
Being positive does make each day better. It doesn't remove the obstacles and difficulties in our lives, but a broader perspective helps lessen the impact of those obstacles and difficulties. The only aspect of this book that I disagree with is the concept of reincarnation. I know that Mr. Van Praagh is utterly convinced that we all go through multiple incarnations on earth to learn various lessons and balance out karma. I don't believe that. I'm quite certain that if he is talking to spirits on the other side of the veil, what he is learning from them is not translating well into a time-bound world.
Eternal life is not a concept easily described by those living it and not easily grasped when living in a construct of measured time like we do on earth. Nov 09, Corinne rated it really liked it. I'm really glad I read this book. It was a departure from my typical more literary reads, and at first I was a bit skeptical but by the end I was not only inspired, but had strong hope in an afterlife such as the one described by Van Praagh.
I also could "hear" lessons that my very recently deceased father would be saying to me, if he could. Now I crave a psychic experience such as the ones Van Praagh describes. Additionally, in all my experience with yoga and meditation, I don't know that I've I'm really glad I read this book. Additionally, in all my experience with yoga and meditation, I don't know that I've found meditation and the practice of emptying one's mind as well described as it was in this book. I recommend it! I especially recommend it for those who have recently lost someone.
May 20, Mary rated it it was amazing Shelves: all-time-favorites. I went to one of Mr. Van Praagh's spirit circles in Laguna Beach. He spoke about this book and I've waited eagerly for its release. I was not disappointed. He delivers a message of love and freedom; that every single day, every monent we have a choice to be loving, compassionate and happy or the opposite. Ultimately though, its much easier to be positive than negative and we reap the harvest of our choices in the end.

It was very inspiring and has shed light on how I can live a happier and productive life while I'm here on earth.
Great book! Feb 05, Andrea Samadi rated it really liked it. James Van Praagh writes a powerful work with "Unfinished Business" where life lessons are apparent on each page of the book. I have not been able to put this book down, and am re-thinking my behaviors after reading these life-altering insights.
I don't want unfinished business in my life, and do want to accelerate towards my goals, so why would I not listen to someone with such insight for a peaceful, successful life. I suggest that you not only read this book, but listen to the messages within, James Van Praagh writes a powerful work with "Unfinished Business" where life lessons are apparent on each page of the book.

It puts us in touch with our loved ones who have passed and those here, and leads to a greater understanding of just how close we all are.
It is a wonderful book. It is full of profound and awesome new information from the other side. This is a book t I have always had an interest in stories about the afterlife and this book never has a dry moment also because it is written in the language of You and I. This is a book that you will not want to put down, just like me, and will most probably keep to reread again and again. So, If you are wondering "what can I learn from the spirit world"? Then pick up this book. Read it, learn from it, and live your life the way you need to live it - not based on misplaced guilt or anger.
Sep 02, Lynn Marie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone looking to improve their lives. I thought this book was very well written. It provided some excellent insight on how one can try to be a better person now. The concepts that James discussed were not anything new, but were written in such a way that I felt truly inspired. While I was raised Catholic, I don't subscribe to any particular religion now. James had a chapter or maybe it was part of a chapter about the difference between spirituality and religion which was right on the mark for me.
I think everyone can learn somethi I thought this book was very well written. I think everyone can learn something from this book no matter where your faith come from. Feb 02, Sandra Mckenzie rated it it was amazing.
I have read a little over half and this book has helped me start changing my attitude and I want to, for the 1st tme in four years I can honestly say "life is good"!!! Finished it today.. Life is still good!!!
Thank you so much Mr. Van Praagh! You are loved and loving. I brought it home for the paranormal stories, but turns out I also needed the life advice. More self-help than ghostly, but exactly what I needed. Having been loaned this autographed book by the author's niece, I knew it would be a kick to read. It was extremely fascinating to hear his perspective on the afterlife. He provides numerous accounts of messages he shares from those who have crossed over to their family and friends.

The details are so rich and specific, you've simply got to wonder. I can't wait to see him when he comes to lecture in Boston this Fall! Sep 06, Noelle rated it it was amazing. A friend's 16 year old recently drowned. I loved this kid and have known her since she was about 3. I've always known somehow that death is not the end but another phase of life. This book confirmed all I've always felt was true. I loved it. It helped me tremendously at this very sad time in my life. May 31, Patricia rated it really liked it. James Van Praagh is a psychic medium and he seems to be the "real deal.
The number of details he is able to recount to those who have lost loved ones is amazing. What makes his readings seem even more credible is that he doesn't always get in touch with the spirits that members of the audience obviously expect to hear from. Sometimes the spirit that appears to him is someone that the person hasn't heard from or even thought about in years.
