This is a very charming book by Brian Hurst. It starts out a little slow for my taste, but it picks up, and becomes very interesting. The first part of the book is mostly about Brian's childhood, and how he felt different from most children, and how he did not have a very good relationship with his parents, always trying to please them, but not able to, by no fault of his own. His Mother wasn't exactly the most supportive person in his life. He stumbles and bumbles about learning of his extraordinary psychic abilities, finally to become at ease with them, and how these abilities grew into an amazing side of Brian Hurst and furthered his awesome career/life. There is no doubt at all about his honesty and sincerity of all the events that take place, and you almost wish you could invite him over for dinner to chat about all of this. All in all it is a very enjoyable book, worth the money. He is a very believable fellow, who seems like he could live next door to you and you might not know how amazing he really is! But beware, the first two chapters are boring and too involved in his childhood, which is not exactly the most fascinating reading, but it DOES get better! I'm giving him 5 stars because I truly believe him, and he has a fascinating life! Brian, why don't you come to Hawaii so I can meet you !!? Bottom line.....buy the book, it's worth it.
