First I want to make clear, that if you haven't read Doreen's "Earth Angels" book, then this is the better addition to purchase because it has exactly what "Earth Angels" includes pluse a bit more information you will want to know. The only thing this newer addition leaves out is the chapter on walk-ins. Ultimately, they are inexpensive so purchasing both may be what you want to do if you wish to read about walk-ins. Let me add that this is a mini book so you could probably read about walk-ins standing at the book store.
Further, for those expecting this new addition to be more than it turned out to be read on. I understand the book said it would contain old material as well as new, but I didn't think that meant repeating word for word in most cases, which is what I found to be true for this book. I was looking forward to lots new information about incarnated Mermaids, and so forth. Like the review written before mine, you can read the newly added details by standing in the book store. I'm glad it only cost $7, again feeling disappointed.
I believe I was hoping as well as others who relished in the previous Earth Angels, for more information about their incarnated being qualities and the realms they come from. There is only one very short paragraph about Merangels, another short one for Merfairies and so forth. There is a little more information than the last book but only a little, including a few new realms about Knights and Leprechauns. Again, why didn't they just wait for more material before making a new book. I suppose it's worth it if you really want even the slightest bit more information about your realm (I guess like I did).
I really don't understand how the Spiritually minded author and publishing company could come out with this book, when they knew how little new information it would contain. I believe they also thought all those who loved Earth Angels would buy it. I wish they would wait until there was significantly more information to publish instead of using only a little and throwing it in with the exact same material as the previous version.

I too pre-ordered this book expecting to receive more information and possibly some new guidance. As the other reviews indicate it is almost a word for word reprint of Earth Angels. For anyone who hasn't already read Earth Angels, I would recommend this book instead. It is a slightly expanded version, with some additional categories. Again, quite dissappointed.

I was dissapointed in this book because when I got it, I saw that it was really just pretty much the same as the first Earth Angels book. (it is really the same book with just one chapter on what she already talked about in the first book so it is basically THE SAME BOOK) I would not buy it again because first of all, I felt really deceived and secondly as I already said it is the SAME BOOK! AS EARTH ANGELS ONLY WITH A DIFFERENT BOOK COVER!

This is an excellent book for people who are interested in spirituality and have a sense of being "different" in some way. Dr. Doreen Virtue outlines different types of "earth angels," as she did in her original "Earth Angels" book. The book also contains information on new groups of earth angels, which is helpful for those who did not relate to the groups outlined in the original book. If you enjoyed reading Doreen's book "Healing with the Angels," you are sure to enjoy this book as well. There are interesting anecdotes from people who relate to being an earth angel, as well as key physical characterisitics for recognizing other earth angels on our planet.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book (as I did the original version)- it contains fascinating and helpful information for many people on a spiritual path. It is particularly helpful to people who may have a sense of not "fitting in," as it explores why earth angels feel this way. If you feel drawn to this book, you will most likely learn something new about yourself in the course of reading it. You may also want to read the original version, "Earth Angels," if you would like information about "Walk-Ins."

I expected so much more since Im fan of Doreen and have many of her books and cards. The book was superficial, you could get so much more by reading Dolores Cannon. There were two or three things she says that I found interesting, about each group of earth angels.
I expected more explanation on what it is earth angels are here to do, and what they have contribuited in the past. Instead, I found it was like a horoscope section in a magazine, where you would check to see if you fit the description and find if you have red hair you are probably a merpeople. If you do fit in, voila feel great and that is it. The book doesn't go any further than that, or at least, not in the profundity I expected.

Just as I found her "Goddess & Angels" book dissapointing, I have also found that this one was a terrible read. Doreen Virtue titles her book with a very "welcoming" heading, and then when you actually purchase the book and read it, it turns out the title and the actual manuscript have no relation at all. Speaking as a book fan, Doreen Virtue's writing personality just doesn't do it for me. I feel she is lost in space and has problems relating to our world, Angels are on earth to help us humans and yet Doreen has problems linking a connection to what Angels can help us with in our daily lives. Not everyones life is a fairytale, we need real guidance, real information, we need a REAL person writing spiritual books! Having recently read a book titled "They Shine, They Fly, They're Angels" I am having problems connecting to Doreen Virtues way of writing, the authors of "They Shine, THey Fly, They're Angels" have a REAL grip to life and how we can practice spirituality in our normal daily lives, also the Author of "They Shine, They fly, They're Angels" is somewhat rare to find these days, because she is a "DOWN TO EARTH" Author, and can relate to REAL PEOPLE! No offense to Doreen Virtue but she would really need to start writing "worthwhile" material, because as a past "fan" I'm dissapointed that society has affected her work.

I'd imagine anyone drawn to this title would be seeking information about the game of life and how it's played. I've been doing that for years and I found this little book was packed with helpful tidbits that shed light on areas of darkness for me. It offers personal accounts of people who have gotten in touch with other aspects of themselves and how this helped put their earthly existence into perspective.

I purchased this book along with Earth Angels, both were fairly inexpensive which was nice. Also the size is great if you want to take something along with you when you might have a wait (Dr. office, etc.)
Overall both books were interesting to me, and I felt like I did not waste my money. The only real 'complaint' I have with this book is unlike Earth Angels, it did not have the little quiz to see which Earth Angel you would fit in most with. If it had that little quiz, I would not have bought the first book, as this book is more or less a repeat of what the first book had, but with a tad bit more information.
I did feel like the first book, and this one answered some questions for me. A lot of what I read in both books made sense to me, also it was interesting to read about all the other Earth Angels.
Again like I mentioned before, if this book had the quiz that came with the first book, I would have not bought the first book. I believe it is thought that everyone who has the first book would buy this book and those who hadn't read either one would do like I did and pick up both books.
It was an interesting book; tho it would be nice if it even more information. Also if it had the quiz so one wouldn't 'have' to buy the first book to test and see which category they fit into most.
I do recommend this book as an interesting read, it definatly opened my eyes and gave insight as to why I am the way I am about some things. Also the price was not bad at all, which makes it all the more appealing to buy.

I'm sure that for many who have felt "out of place", to some extent, can benefit from this book. As humans, we do tend to find comfort in labels for ourselves for some reason. However, I personally don't really find it as something that really is going to help a person grow. I mean, in all honesty, how can saying "Hey I'm an incarnated angel!" really truly help someone? There's a lot of different personality and categorizing systems out there in psychology and in more psycho-spirituality, but what does it really help? The goal, in my mind, is to develop more intuitively and to discover yourself internally rather than create labels for it. To some extent, I can see a bit of understanding and comfort in the label but after the discovery... what changes? Anything?
I do like Doreen's books, workshops, and other information. Yet, I must say what I have find most helpful is her information on intuitive development and connecting to your Angels. Some of these other books, I feel, are like a toned down additional material that really doesn't amount to much.
Perhaps part of my opinion stems from not really finding a category that fully "gels" with me. I guess the one I most related to was incarnated angels, but I tend to be rather independent, quiet, and detached at times... which I could see going along with starpeople, possibly... but I could also see that as simply being a nurture aspect (due to my upbringing... as recognized in traditional psychology) rather than a spiritual aspect. That being said, I've read of other systems that are more spiritual based that, though were perhaps a bit more "out there" (like saying what planet(s) you lived at previously) that gelled with me more. However, as I said earlier, even though the "label" gelled with me it's not like it was any real significant information that I really needed to know in order to grow. It was more like a "oh that's nice" and carry on learning and growing with more proactive things.

There is not much new infomation in this rewrite of the original "Earth Angels" book, but it is still a great little mini book. If you do not have the older book, just buy this new rewrite. As another reviewer already mentioned, this rewrite omits information on "Walk-Ins" (I don't know why.)
If you have neither book, this little 193 page mini-book (about the size of a pile of postcards) basically gives you clues of what to look for if you think you might be: an Earth Angel; an Incarnated Angel, an Incarnated Elemental (elves, fairys, gnomes, etc), Starpeople, Wise Ones (Reincarnated Sorceresses, etc), Hybrids (combos).
A quickie example--Incarnated Elemental: can't stand rules, always looking for a laugh, fiery, passionate, often reddish hair and freckles and Celtic (Irish) heritage or appearance, mischievious/playful, fast metabolism, slim bodies, etc.
--Incarnated Angels: obey rules, get angry at rule-breakers, serious and polite, voluptuous bodies, slow metabolism, food addictions, patient and calm, etc.
Of course, the book contains much more info. I suspect that many people will find they are predominately one of these, but have some additional aspects of others. For instance, you may be an Incarnated Angel, but remember playing with Unicorns as a very young child (Elemental Kingdom) and have freckles and a Celtic background with some red in your hair. You may also have rememberances of Isis (Wise Ones), or at least sense that you do.
Whether you believe this stuff or not, this little $[...] book can be fun to read. Heck, you probably spend more on lunch!
I have a 50-year old friend who fits "Elemental" to perfection. When you see that twinkle in her eyes, LOOK OUT WORLD! Guess what? Her red-headed, freckled grandson is "Elemental" too. He is also 4 years old, going on 35. A child of "Now," he is most definitely a very old soul in a very young body. Looks like a little Leprechan right now, right out of the old Disney movie with Sean Connery!
