If you can only afford one book on Edgar Cayce, then this is the one to purchase. I have read every book in the library on the sleeping prophet. This book was publishing orignally in the 1940's and is written by a person who actually knew Edgar Cayce.
This book provides a history of Mr. Cayce from birth to death and provides the essentials for understanding who, what, when, and where of the sleeping prophet. Once you have that basic history of the man, then you can more easily concentrate other areas that he addressed such as healing, Atlantis, Egyptians, prophecy, etc.

In the mid-sixties I bought a paperback called "There is a River" by Thomas Sugrue. I believe he wrote it in the 1940s. Reading this book as many times as I had, inspired me to form a metaphysical study group at a Chicago area public library that lasted until the early 70s. During that time we became local "experts" on Cayce and everything he wrote.
Today, the interpretations of his readings and writings have changed - and that's not a good thing. At a bookstore recently, I sat down and studied this edition for a few hours and I regret to say that this updated version has been modified and changed to the degree that it has altered Sugrue's original and authentic insights into the Cayce he knew personally.
I'm grateful that I had learned about Cayce when his sons were still in control of publications coming out of A.R.E. in Virginia Beach. Things have changed over the years and whomever is in control today seems to be turning a once benevolent institution into a for-profit book selling organization in the name of Edgar Cayce.
I would recommend for anyone who has a sincere interest in learning from one of the original and genuine interpretations of Cayce's readings, to forego this edition and search for the original "There is a River" by Thomas Sugrue - who knew him personally.

I have read 7 of Edgar Cayce's books, this is my 8th. I told myself that I wouldn't read anymore Egar Cayce books until I've read his life story. I'm still reading Edgar Cayce books after reading, "There is a River..." and now I appreciate his books much more now that I know who the individual is. This book is very in depth, but there are some questions that I have that remain unanswered about his life. Perhaps I'll get more info from the book, "Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet". What I love about Mr. Cayce is that through the whole book, no matter how much fame he got, or how many people looked up to him, he always stayed humble and close to the Bible, which says a lot compared to some psychics that become arrogant just because they have stronger psychic ability than most people. He used his ability not to get rich, but to help people even though he was poor himself. God bless is soul!

I find the book"There Is a River" very informative, inspirational, and life altering. After reading this book, my life took on a new perspective. I am not alone. I had so many questions the doctors could not answer. I am so very happy that a friend of mine let me borrow her copy to read. After reading the first chapter, I returned her book, went to the bookstore and purchased my own copy. I don't know where I would be right now had I not read his book. My life suddenly became clear and my mission on earth materialized to me for the first time in my life. All fear left me and was replaced with hope, love, amazement, astonishment, faith and charity. My life remain changed forever. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has had the question: who am I? what am I doing here? why should I do good to others? ailments that the doctors cannot find no treatment for, unusual things that happens to one that cannot be explained for lack of words, spiritual things, dreams or visions, etc. I went on to purchase everything I could on Edgar Cayce.

Much of this book is ordinary - documenting in chronological order both the mundane and fascinating events in the life of a most enigmatic man.
If you're considering reading this book it's probably because you've already read something else about Edgar Cayce or a part of the body of philosophy that has grown out of his "readings". This book will provide the story of his life: How he came upon his "gift", how he struggled with it, how he used it, and ultimately how he never quite understood it and was never able to establish anything lasting from it.
Not very much attention is given to the huge body of metaphysical thought that came from his readings, however there is a 15-page summary of the resulting "theology" at the end of the book that outlines the implications of it all.
Where the book fails is that it never really wrestles with whehter or not the resulting theology is "true". It demonstrates how EC throughout his life questioned whether the gift might be co-opted and used for an evil purpose, but other than saying "people are being helped so it must be good" the author didn't ask the tough questions and apparently neither did the Cayce family.
And, although affirming Jesus Christ and Christianity there is very little effort put into reconciling the Cayce philosophy with the New TEstament. They iron out a few wrinkles but ignore obvious objections. The philosophy could almost boil down to "Hinduism is mostly right and Jesus showed us the right way to live". Nevertheless, the Cayce take on Christianity avoids some of the obvious pitfalls of the fundamental Christian take on the Bible.
If this review sounds confusing it's because, as this book unintentionally makes clear, Edgar Cayce's life and legacy are confusing. He had an odd gift that no one quite figured out.
