Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
Virginia Adair's book will appeal to many readers because of its intensive interviewing of 43 female psychics and healers chosen at random selection from 15 countries. The women come from different cultural backgrounds and have interesting approaches to the paranormal. Their value systems and paranormal abilities are highlighted and shared with the reader.
Adair is an honest interviewer, and she gives depth and substance to these interviews. A well-known artist, her paintings are in many institutions and private collections. She puts forward the highly valid idea that neuroscientists must become more involved in studies involving psychics and the paranormal.
In addition to the introduction, there are 46 chapters and an epilogue. Among the many fascinating chapters and topics are "Dunwoody, Georgia: A Psychic Sleuth for All Seasons," "Dr. Jean Houston and the Time Compression Effect," "Singapore, Malaysia: A Clairvoyant Who Seasons Intuition with Reason," "Pondicherry, India: At the Ashram of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother," "New York, NY: A Modern-Day Ariadne Seeks to Lead Us Out of the Contemporary Labyrinth," among others.
The reader will discover new insights and information in this book. For those interested in the documentation of the return of female prophetic power, and the oracle, this will prove to be a fine reading adventure. Adair is a highly inquisitive interviewer who reveals many things unknown to the readers, and shares her findings in a well-written, concise, and enjoyable way.
