Format: Paperback
Lisa Barreta's new book The Street Smart Psychic's guide is awesome. So far, I've already read the first few chapters - it's moving and Lisa is very funny, in a "street smart" way. I've had skepticisms about psychic phenomenon, but her writing style is so compelling and fluid that as a reader I was instantly drawn in. It's wildly imaginative and is generally just so entertaining reading about the characters seeking psychic support, and how to get my own without setting my wallet on fire. The book is down to earth, thorough, honest, and highly informed. This is not a "Cleo" book, it's the real deal. I think in our current climate of linear thinking predomination in American culture, the world needs a book that opens pathways for people to indulge in the oft-ignored world of abstraction and intuition. Cheers!

I received this as a gift from a friend. I don't get readings done. No particular reason, I just don't (well, let's say "haven't" for many, many years). That being said, I think even if you're like me, you may enjoy the "behind the scenes" info about what goes on during a reading.

They say you can always tell a Philly girl because she pulls no punches when she's talking to you. That's exactly the way I felt reading this book. For the novice who's never gotten a reading to the "seasoned pro" who's been getting them for years, I think just about everyone can enjoy and learn something from this book.

It's funny, personal and very down to earth. By the end of the book you feel as if you've met the author for coffee and had a good chat (and a chuckle or two!).

As a working Psychic and Consumer Advocate I'm always appreciative when I find any kind of guide that can help people protect themselves from possible victimization, something the Psychic industry is rife with for any number of reasons but mainly due to the fact that it's so easy to deceive the desperate.

While this book has some serious flaws and inaccuracies, more than likely due to the author's denial or simply a lack of knowing about how charlatans actually work, the essence of what it offers is sound, giving to the reader a reasonable look at the pros & cons within the psychic industry and what we, as consumers, need to consider when looking for a professional in this field that will be honest with us, trustworthy and of course, able to fill the niche -- provide the type of service we happen to need at the moment. Too, the author gives you a rather interesting overview as to the different kinds of Psychics you'll find out there; practice and personality quirks, fields of specialty, etc.

For anyone looking at this arena for help, possible vocation or just plain curiosity this book is a decent primer.
