Book Review- Afterlives of the Rich and Famous

Who hasn't been curious about what happens and where we go after we die? What is it like, who will be waiting for us on the other side and what really happens many ask themselves. Sylvia Browne attempts to answer these questions in her latest book "Afterlives of the Rich and Famous" in which she speaks about famous movie stars like Heath Ledger, Marilyn Monroe and even Princess Diana.
The book starts out with an introduction, a chapter titled "Death... and then What?" followed by a glossary of terms that will be used in the following pages that uniquely describes the afterlife and various concepts such as "The Left Door," "The Hall of Wisdom," "Ghosts" and "Astral Travel." It is an interesting and wonder filled explanation of just what lies on the other side and how she understands it with the help of her spirit guide Francine.

After the introduction and the glossary we are treated to her list of celebrities starting with Paul Newman and ending with Lady Diana Spencer, more fondly known as Princess Diana. Each celebrity's story starts out with a fantastic biography of their lives and gives highlights and outstanding moments from each of their lives and then after, proceeds to explain in detail what each star is doing now that they have passed on.

As explained by Sylvia, Paul Newman's father was waiting for him on the other side even before he reached "home" and was greeted by his son, Scott, whom had passed away years before from an accidental overdose. The scanning machine was both difficult and healing for him and he is deeply grateful for all of his blessings. You can find him now, pursuing humanitarian affairs and animals in need charities that he was so fond of in this world. He is a popular lecturer and focuses on giving rather than receiving.

Although my personal beliefs differ about what happens after we die and just what we do in the afterlife, there are several wonderful biography's that pay tribute to the rich and famous and it is an original written account of just what Sylvia's spirit guide narrates to her.
