He also unabashedly admits there are a lot of things he doesn’t know, such as the purpose and meaning behind his specific experiences, and relays the frustrations of having too many unanswered questions and being unable to direct his interactions with the supernatural. Though some will question the validity or explain away his encounters, readers will be charmed by his freewheeling prose (“I… look up… expecting to see a whirling mass of tornadic doom—Damn it...I’m too young to die!—and instead I’m greeted by the sight of a shiny metallic looking disc…. I literally perform a cartoon-style eye rub”).
His affection for things natural and supernatural—he calls a particular branch “my old friend” and dedicates the book to “my guys on the Other Side”—and his gratitude for these experiences are infectious. Russell brings his treks to life with vibrant immediacy. His unadulterated joy and way with words yield an entertaining and meaningful account.
Takeaway: Motorcycle riding and psychic experience enthusiasts will relish in the physical and spiritual journey of this entertaining autobiography.
Great for fans of: Maureen Hancock’s The Medium Next Door, Marla Frees’s American Psychic.

I experienced an awesome return to The Ryan Lindsay Show as a featured guest. I had previously been a regular guest on Ryan's show for many years before he left the airways. Ryan's always been a popular radio host, and he's returned to radio and I'm back on his show again. Check out his show and give him a listen. I think you'll enjoy it.
