Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Whether readers believe what Bertoldi has to say is a matter of choice, but the charm of this "average Jersey girl who talks to the dead" goes a long way toward making this one of the more approachable titles in the recent wave of medium-authored books. It also has a format with wide appeal, more or less cribbed from the bestselling Why Do Men Have Nipples? Instead of personal health questions, Bertoldi answers queries like "Do the dead go to ball games?" (Yes) and "How meaningful are coincidences in our lives?" (Very). The book also has a dishy element, delving into the medium's personal life (her husband's a skeptic) and a number of celebrity encounters. Though generally fun reading throughout, questions of God, heaven and other spiritual matters are met with vague language; she's similarly uninformative regarding practical matters like finding happiness or contacting the seemingly omnipresent dead.

Review

“With her fun loving and sparkling personality, it is no wonder the spirit world wants to speak to her.” (James Van Praagh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of TALKING TO HEAVEN)

“I most definitely believe…Concetta Bertoldi is definitely not your run-of-the-mill medium, definitely not.” (Billy Baldwin)

“GHOSTS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN: the dead do walk among us, watch us make love and sometimes even try to get in on the action—but they won’t follow us into bars.” (PAGE SIX, New York Post)

“The charm of this ‘average Jersey girl who talks to the dead’ goes a long way toward making this one of the more approachable titles in the recent wave of medium-authored books.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Bertoldi swears she has been communicating with the dead since she was a little girl. Now she reveals everything you’v ever wanted to know about what it’s like.” (Daily News)

“Sweet, funny, and reassuring . . . What makes Bertoldi stand out are her personality and positive energy, which shines throughout. An engaging, life-affirming read . . .” (Library Journal)

“I have never read a more straightforward book about ‘The Other Side’…Concetta instills a sense that there is more living after death…heart-warming.” (Abigail Carter, author of The Alchemy of Loss: A Young Widow's Transformation)

“Believers will delight in knowing the answers…any way you look at it, it’s interesting reading for anyone curious about the afterlife.” (Chicago Sun Times: The Book Room)

Her short stories are fun to read, her battles with her mother-in-law make you know she is just like the rest of us, and her wit and humor pop right out at you.

If you believe in psychics and and afterlife, I believe this book can offer some comfort, especially if you have lost loved ones.

When I saw this book, I was a little leery to read it because as a Christian, I've been taught that "mystical" things are to be avoided (psychics, ghosts, etc). However, Bertoldi often mentions that she belives in God and that in her "readings," she asks for God's protection. That, plus the interesting title, caused me to read the book, and I am glad that I did!

For people who are unsure about the afterlife or the existence of God, in no way does Bertoldi preach or push her beliefs throughout the book. She even mentions that her husband is a nonbeliever. Rather, Bertoldi shares her experiences and the things that she has learned from the spiritual world.

Personally, I've never really been a believer in ghosts and aliens and things, but Bertoldi's work makes a really good case for a spiritual world that is near our own. It hasn't made me a hard-core believer in mediums and such, but it's at least opened my mind more, helped answer random questions that I've had about death, etc. It made me stop and question if I'm living a good life, and it helped pull my focus away from living an Earth-life to trying to live a life that is more fit for Heaven.

Very interesting book. I highly recommend it!

I loved this book. I can't say that Concetta Bertoldi convinced me that life of the spirit continues beyond physical death because I was already a believer. But I loved Concetta's warmth and irreverence, and while a lot of her stories just confirmed what I already believed, there were also a LOT that made even a believer say, "Wow." One thing that stood out for me is nothing "paranormal" or "spiritual" at all - that was Concetta's advice for anyone who wants to be happier, just SMILE.

I enjoyed the question and answer format of the book. It made it a light read; however, in some answers she described the dead as individualike with the ability to see everything we do and in other answers she stated that we become part of one mass or unit. I hate to think that when I speak to my late husband I am actually speaking to one collective. Another contradiction was when the Other Side is described as only able to feel love, no emotions, judgement, anger or sadness .....They are no longer human and therefore don't need these things, but in another answer will tell you how They will hide your keys to be playful because They still have a sense of humor. Either They remain individualike and retain some humanlike qualities or They become one omniconcious blob... And why is it that a personal reading lasts about 10 minutes, because that's all the spirits can last, but they tend to be able to hang out in her hallway all night? I sound like a skeptic, but I am not. I do think Concetta has the ability, but perhaps just needs to clarify some things. I do believe there is an Other Side and I do believe there are special people who can contact this Side, but I also believe that 90% of people who say they have the ability actually do not.

This is a wonderful book! The question and answer format is one that has long been needed for this kind of subject. Examples of two of the questions: "Are we still married to our spouses on the Other Side?" "How is it that the dead, in spirit form, can manipulate material objects on this side?" I had long wondered about the latter, and her answer made perfect sense to me.
Concetta does an excellent job of explaining the basics of the afterlife and reincarnation, in a gentle and fun way. I have long believed in what she says, but still enjoyed reading her answers. This is the perfect book to introduce someone to the Afterlife and reincarnation.

The title of this book, "Do Dead People Watch you Shower?" has been a question of mine so I bought the book to find out the answer. Unfortuately, according to the author, the answer is yes, dead people do watch us shower and watch us do everything else that we thought was private. This wasn't the answer that I wanted to hear but later in the book she presented information about two readings where she did not see any spirits around the two people she was giving readings to. I'm hoping that I might possibly fall into this category and if so, then my showers have been indeed private. LOL

The book is written in a question/answer format and she includes some questions where she says she really doesn't know the answers. I thought this was alittle strange as I would have expected and preferred her to only include the questions that she could answer and leave out any that she couldn't. Anyway, the book was very interesting.

This is a great book for those of you unfamiliar with mediums and exploring the other side of life and death and everything in between. I come from a catholic background so the skeptical side definetely exist in me. As I was taught growing up, when you die, if you are good you go to heaven, if you are bad you go to that other place. Well, I have to say that there is a place where our loved ones go and Concetta Bertoldi knows exactly how to bring them back to us, and she does this ever so cleverly. She puts everything into perspective without pushing her faith or spirit on you. She is clear and to the point with an easy to read question and answer book. She takes you deep into her world and you will find that you will not want to put the book down once you start reading it. I found it great because there is no beginning, and there is no end, and at times I found myself just reading the first entry I would open up to. This is purely reading without pressure; no characters to follow, no story to understand, just a fun filled journey to a place we are all curious about, but could never seem to quite understand. Her short stories are fun to read, her battles with her mother-in-law make you know she is just like the rest of us, and her wit and humor pop right out at you.

I have had the privilege of seeing Concetta do her thing in person and her audience is always captivated, her presence is immediately felt and her feel good personality puts you immediately at ease. She can bring a crowd to tears and moments later explode in laughter, as her charm takes over the stage, making you feel as if you have known this woman forever. The hope and love extended to you makes you see that Concetta is a real person and not just an act. This is someone who will make you think twice in what truly lies beyond the limits of this tiny world we live in. This all shines through in this book and you will have fun talking about it with your friends and family; I highly recommend.
