—San Francisco Chronicle
"An exemplary and eloquently written story that makes it easy for nonbelievers in intuition to believe. You must read this book."
"Judith Orloff is a talented writer, and her book moves like a thriller… Orloff's real goal is to awaken your sense that you too are an intuitive --- indeed, that we all are --- and that you can sharpen your gifts. If you've ever had an experience that gives you chills to remember, if you ever find that you 'know' facts about people they would never have told you, this book will be a great relief and a door to more… Forgive me my moment of intuition, but this book feels right."
—Jesse Kornbluth, Huffington Post
"An intensely personal spriitual odyssey. Dr. Orloff's self-portrait as an intuitive psychiatrist is filled with love and a truth born of an extraordinary gift."
—Norman Lear, Writer, producer
"Fascinating...Dr. Orloff writes with wisdom and humility about her emergence as a physician with extraordinary abilities. Highly recommended."
—Dean Ornish, M.D., Author, Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease
"Poignant…courageous and refreshing. Must reading for all."
—Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 Astronaut, Author, Way of the Explorer
"One of those rare books that has the potential to create shock waves and revolutions within a profession. An inspiring, lofty statement from a very courageous physician."
—Larry Dossey, MD, Author, Healing Words
"We are far more than we have allowed ourselves to be. Judith Orloff is to be commended for helping us understand that simple truth."
—Louise Hay, Author of You Can Heal Your Life
"A book to re-read...a story that gives one pause...Orloff tells her story with conviction and a gentle, literate style that wins the reader to her narrative."
"Second Sight reads like a thriller. It is a page turner ...inspiring...controversial. This pioneering book shares the struggles and well-won successes of a courageous physician who fights against a skeptical medical system to validate the power of intuition. You will find a new friend in Judith as her writing style is as intimate as if she was talking to you in her living room."
—Joan Borysenko Phd Author, Mending the Mind, Minding the Spirit

That's how it felt to read Dr. Judith Orloff's Second Sight - like one of those wonderful all-night conversations that you'll never forget. Through her warmth and honesty she reminded me that there is a place for Empaths in this world. We must not let the fear of untrained gifts stop us from accepting our calling. Hiding from it doesn't help. Judith's story leads ultimately to acceptance of this.
Presented in two parts, Second Sight begins with Initiations, detailing Judith's difficult lessons and growth toward acceptance that medicine and intuition can be successfully integrated into both work and life. In part two, Teachings, Dr. Orloff shares "practical techniques to develop intuition, dreams, and a connection with your own spiritual path."
"What saved me were the angels who appeared along the way - mentors and teachers who had travelled this path before and shared their wisdom with me. This made all the difference."
This book has been that for me. An angel along the way. A mentor encouraging acceptance of my gifts. A teacher sharing a path through the traps and pain. A friend holding out a light in the dark. A kindred spirit. Judith, Thank you for sharing your self, your story, your truth. It has been an honor and a real blessing to me.
If you're an Empath, Intuitive, or otherwise sensitive, read this book.
If you aren't, but want to understand, read this book.

Like many who struggle with their intuitive gifts, I found it challenging to walk comfortably in my psychic shoes. Dr Judith's life was like mine, I found relief and validation from knowing that these gifts are "real", that they serve a purpose for good and healing.
"A real gift of the psychic is that it allows us to tune in to an authentic inner authority, offering us an alternative to acting out the endless negative scripts we write in our own heads."
The self doubt and feeling of isolation were profoundly reduced after reading this book.
Not only is the book informative and practical it is a treasure of gentle anecdotes and insight.
I recommend this book to my clients as a "go to" initial resource when they question their intuition and gifts. Dr Judith is a science based psychiatrist sharing the magic of our inner wisdom. Her professional and warm approach is palpable in her writing. I have ALL of her books. All wonderful, all powerful in expanding self acceptance and practical knowledge. Thank you.
First of all, i heard the extraordinary story of Judith on the Radio, Coast to Coast, it was! I was on fire and wanted more. Then i thought, i must buy the book.
What disappointed me was that it was more story-telling and less practical, so i read it quite slowly, took me a whole week, though i had a lot of time...
That shouldn't mean the book is not the right book for you, it's just that i am a bit more advanced in this topic than the rest, so i expected to get only boiled down information, like what you get from her Audio: Emotional Freedom. I haven't read the book ''Emotional Freedom'', but can imagine, it's just learn, learn, learn.
''Second Sight'', for somebody who has had many wonders happen to him/her already, like myself, may become a bit boring by the detail of the life story of Judith. Nevertheless, she has had her deeper emotional troubles before unmelting her suppressed heart, and it is fascinating for 99,99% of the people to follow her story with thirst, cause they can identify with the dilema- ''Am i gonna be myself or the one the society wants me to be?''. I am a very tiny exception who overcame this problem long ago in my childhood, that's why for me it was boring at times, but if i would put myself in the shoes of an ordinary person struggling to balance his inner and outer world, this book would definitely save you lots of trouble, time and effort by showing you how you are going to feel if you did this and that in your path to expressing your abilities in a world that thinks exceptional people to be spooky or creepy.
Do it, read the book, and let it encourage you to trust you inner voice and reach your goals sooner and easier, rather than going through year-long inner fighting which will anyway end with the heart winning the battle over the brain.
Remember, the Brain sees the differences, the Heart the similarities!
Judith went through hell, emotionally, and the cool thing is, you don't have to.
That's why sharing ones' experiences is so important, so that others know what can go wrong and save their sufferings and time by consciously deciding to put the solution into action immediately after learning about it. In this book, you are going to learn some pretty nice solutions, simply put, poured out of the heart, by a person who was once, more similar to you now, than you think!
Open your heart, and prepare yourself for a unique ride, cause by the time you reach the end of the book, you'll already be transformed into a more wholesome being than when you started it!
