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.
