The little book of true ghost stories

From Library Journal:

At the age of 17, Bodine found that she had psychic abilities and a gift for healing. Since then she has written several books (The Gift: Understand and Develop Your Psychic Abilities; Echoes of the Soul), appeared on TV shows, had her own cable and radio program, and claims to have encountered numerous ghosts. Her third book about her experiences with ghosts covers some of the same ground. She shares her personal experiences with various ghosts, explains why they were still on Earth, and reveals how she convinced them to move on. At the end of each chapter, she includes a "Ghost Fact"; most of these seem to reiterate that living people have power over ghosts (in an interview about her ghost-busting activity, she stated that the practice was more like ghost counseling). The last few chapters advise readers on how to determine whether they have ghosts in their lives and how to rid themselves of those ghosts. VERDICT Bodine's book is fairly well written and appealing despite a certain amount of repetitiveness. It would work well in public libraries where patrons want to read "real" stories about ghosts.-Mary E. Jones, Los Angeles P.L. (c) Copyright 2011.
