About the Author
For forty years Yvonne Perry was enmeshed with the fundamental dogma of religion and lived according to the interpretation of the Bible that her family, society, and church leaders passed down to her. Before she had a label to put on her empathetic ability, she called herself an intercessor carrying the burdens of others to the throne of grace. While praying for others she empathically took on their suffering until it severely challenged her emotional and physical health. A graduate of American Institute of Holistic Theology, Yvonne holds a Bachelor of Science in Metaphysics.

I can tell the author has a lot of information and a lot of experience, but I have to wonder where her editor was when the author handed in her rough draft? Did nobody tell her, "Know your audience"? If I'm just discovering that I'm an empath, I really don't want to hear stories about picking up entities in dark alleys and be inundated with references to a bunch of techniques and studies I've probably never heard of. Is the author trying to bewilder and freak out people who aren't used to such talk and ideas? Or is she just attempting to brag about everything she knows?
Despite this, I trudged on thru the book, because several years ago I did read quite a bit about new-agey subjects, and I could disregard without much difficulty. Then, I ran into the next problem: the author's anger and unforgiveness toward the religious community. I believe you can be a sane empath and still embrace Christianity, and, again, it was something else I had to disregard in order to get to the real information.
The author has written a book for beginner empaths that will bewilder, confuse, frighten, and even possibly offend beginner empaths. I'd like to say that if you can get past all that, it has good information. But if you can get past all that, you're not a beginner (and also probably not a Christian, or one just as angry and unforgiving as she is) and you don't need the book in the first place. If you're truly a beginner, there are probably many other books that are better organized, less scattered, and less frightening, perhaps truly written for beginners.
I was also annoyed that throughout the early chapters, the author kept repeating over and over to see Chapter Nine. At some point, I seriously considered just turning to Chapter Nine and forgetting the rest of the book. Once I got there, I saw that Chapter Nine was full of ways to cope, and it probably was the best chapter in the book, but it DID NOT HELP ME IN THE LEAST. All of the exercises I had already figured out myself, been taught in therapy in a more psychological sense, or had tried before and hadn't found success. For Chapter Nine being the best chapter, the author could have gone into much more detail about each technique.
I bought two other books on the subject and I'm hoping at least one of them is much better. I am thoroughly disappointed in this book. If she retitled it "Bizarre Tales Of A Psychic's Life" and marketed it toward the horror movie or Halloween crowd, I would give it a different review. As a beginner's manual on how to cope, it utterly fails. I give it 3 stars because I can tell she is knowledgeable.
This book is the perfect first book for someone who is just realizing their empathic gifts (that sometimes feel like a curse!)
I would recommend this book for its warm and supportive style, it's concrete techniques for managing energies and it's honest and authentic examples and narratives. It felt like listening to a good friend or a fairy godmother. It was just what I needed and I'm planning on rereading it soon.
