This book was disappointing. The anecdotes were too simple and pat to convey a sense of real events and the messages were generic and scattershot. But worst of all, sensible doubt and critical introspection have no presence in this book.

Anna Raimondi is giving people input and advice about their deepest personal issues, and cloaking her own words in the authority of her clients' deceased family and friends. Because she claims to be speaking for dead people, Anna's words carry much more impact for many clients than would the words of a trained therapist or doctor, or even the words of a trusted friend.

So is this added authority real or not? This is important to know - important for Anna's clients to know and important for her to know. Are these words really coming from dead people, or are they coming from Anna's imagination?

Yet Anna doesn't acknowledge any responsibility to truly determine whether (A) she's truly discovered proof of the afterlife - a discovery greater than all of history's Nobel Prize-worthy accomplishments combined, or (B) she's just making this up - intentionally or unintentionally.

Self-deceived "psychics" are quite common. These are the sincere, innocent people who have been so encouraged by enthusiastic and credulous followers that they truly believe they have paranormal abilities. These people are genuinely surprised when their powers fail a formal test or in the presence of a skeptic. Videos and testimonials of such failures are readily available. Anna's may be a case of such self-deception, growing up as she apparently did in an environment where every day events were given supernatural interpretations.

This book is easy to captivate and keep you reading until finished. It is written with purity and honesty, and easy to understand. It speaks volumes to the down-to-earth part of us, leaving us with an understanding that says, "hey, I can really relate to that!" The author, Anna truly IS a messenger and you can sense this humble spirit in her written work within this book. She writes this book well with deep understanding and compassion that does not lift herself up above others, but leaves you with a feeling of "Wow! I'd like to meet this person!" She leaves you feeling as though you can easily connect with her and not feel as though she is so different because of her gifts. She has mastered her gifts in such a way that us ~ordinary~ ones without the "same" gifts (we all have different gifts) can still relate and feel connections. She truly IS an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift!"...and yet so down-to-earth!..now THAT in itself IS EXTRAORDINARY! Everyone should have a copy of this book!!

"Talking to the Dead" is clearly a labor of love by Anna Raimondi. In every page she shares her love and her healing gifts, and inspires her readers. Anna's stories about her friends, family, guides and spirits are warm and heartfelt, and give us more than a glimpse into another world. I recommend this book for anyone who has loved and lost, as well as for anyone who could use a little support in coming fully into the gifts of their own. Anna, thank you SO much!

I heard Anna Raimondi on a teleseminar and I enjoyed her interview very much. Her story was beautiful and refreshing, so I purchased her book. However, the writing in this book is not what I expected. Ms. Raimondi repeats herself often about her intentions for the book, synchronicity, etc. I couldn't finish it. I felt like I was a baby being spoon-fed the information, instead of a reader who can think on her own. I wanted to say: "I get it, Anna!" The stories are interesting but the way that the information is presented lacks a professional and polished quality. This book needs some strong edits to flow like Anna's spirits and love.
