About the Author

Sylvia Browne is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. She has appeared on Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The Montel Williams Show, Sally Jessy Raphael, Unsolved Mysteries, CNN, and Entertainment Tonight. Her website is sylvia.org.

From AudioFile

Sylvia Browne has become well-known as a psychic through her appearances on TV and a number of bestselling books. In this program Browne presents her interpretation of many aspects of the paranormal through explications of related terms. Jeanie Hackett works hard to give an animated narration of each segment without overdoing it. The audio format is not the obvious choice for a dictionary/encyclopedia. Nonetheless, Hackett's narration permits listening to the book as an introduction to the topic. Each term begins a new track, and the package contains an index of the terms by disc, a resource that may help to make this a useful reference.

Customer Reviews

If this book has a main failing, I think it is weak in the problem of explaining evil in the world.
Jim Curry
Her books are excellent as well as her psychic abilities are a phenomenon as you can see her on the Montel William Show every Wednesday.
Desiree Breidenstine
Sylvia Browne is one of the most sincere, convincing, honest people I believe a person can every meet.

When I bought this book, I was expecting long chapters on specific topics. I was a little disappointed to find out it was basically a book full of paranormal terms and their definitions. Despite this fact, I kept reading, and realized the book was actually really good. There were a lot of terms I'd never heard of that were explained, and that was interesting, and a lot of terms I had heard that were finally explained, and in a simple, easy to understand, makes sense kind of way. Ultimately, the book helped me to understand Sylvia Browne's view of the afterlife and all its side topics. And it made me feel good that no matter what happens in my life, at the end everything is going to be just fine. Because I planned it that way to learn from it all. It was pretty reassuring. I plan to look for more books from Sylvia Browne, not just for her experiences, but she was very entertaining as well.

"As time goes on, more and more people are figuring out that so-called `psychic phenomena' aren't so unnatural or uncommon after all; that the worlds of the paranormal and spirituality are handmaidens to each other; and that both can actually deepen and enhance a whole spectrum of even the most devout religious beliefs." - From the book

The paranormal, mysterious, and unexplained have intrigued humankind for millennia. With the dawn of the internet, ancient wisdom and mystical lore are now at the fingertips of anyone with computer access. Concepts like the third eye, clairvoyance, the "silver cord", psychic detectives, reincarnation, chakras, and auras are making their way into the mainstream, and curiosity about the Other Side and "paranormal" experiences are at an all time high. However, some of these terms and practices may be unknown or confusing to those unfamiliar.

Psychic and author Sylvia Browne has compiled a thorough encyclopedia of metaphysical topics in her book Phenomenon: Everything You Need to Know About the Paranormal. This 332-page book demystifies, explains, and sometimes debunks the various practices, experiences, and concepts of the New Age.

Hey there. Just a quick note to all the haters and doubters out there. Don't judge before you have experienced. When I first encountered Sylvia Browne in the late 1990's, I used to think exactly as some of the reviewers of her books and her detractors characterize her. That is, as a useless and dangerous criminal charlatan. But then, something amazing happened. I got to actually be "read" by her at an event in Toronto at the Learning Annex. In the span of a minute and a half, Sylvia (through spot-on and specific references to people I know or have known, experiences I have had or was in the midst of having at the time, etc.) proved to me that she was for real.

I am not talking about some John Roberts BS like, "I'm sensing someone by the name of G in the room.". I'm talking specific names, dates, events, chronology, and the relation between them. Then, after giving me a rundown of what was going on in my life at that time, she proceeded to tell me how everything was going to unfold in the next year. Well, all I have to say is that she was right on the money on all counts. Not only did what she said would happen happened, all of it occurred at exactly the order and time intervals she predicted. I will not divulge the details because this had to do with private matters that, frankly, are nobody's business but my own (another thing, even though we were in a large hall with hundreds of people, Sylvia maintained professionalism by not embarrasing me with too private a reading). Since then, I have had the priviledge of having 2 formal readings with her, each of which was just superb.

There are those who say that she is not a serious scholar of the paranormal. But, I ask you, how in the hell can anyone be a serious scholar of the paranormal?

This book is basically a dictionary for the terms used in the paranormal world. I have read most of Sylvia Browne's books so I found this one mainly repeating the same information. I did learn a couple of new things though. I would recommend this book for someone who really hasn't read much of Sylvia's books or just looking for more information on the subject. Overall, I was happy with the book.

I used to think the world of Sylvia Browne--until I started to read more widely about the paranormal. Now I can see how empty of content her books are. Whether its on paper or on television, Sylvia is obviously just spouting things off the top of her head--no validations or evidence needed.

Writing books like "Phenomenon" make that process even easier. I've read so much about this subject in the past few years, enough to see that this book is a complete work of fantasy and imagination.

Paranormal fantasies might be a fun read, if you're looking for fiction and imaginative free associations about other-worldly experiences with no basis in history or experience. But to really find out "Everything You Need to Know About the Paranormal" one should look to authors who've really done their RESEARCH.

This book is definitely Not Recommended.
