This book is a very helpful guide to developing as a medium. Gordon's sincerity and compassion shine through as he shows the reader that the development of mediumship is a spiritual journey, not the acquiring of a skill. He does provide lucid, concise advice and steps to help bring forward our spiritual gifts and there are plenty of practical suggestions. It is also written in an upbeat, no-nonsense tone with some very funny examples and stories thrown in to keep us smiling. Anyone who has trained with Gordon or received a message from him will recognise, in these pages, the love and humour which radiate from him in everything that he does. He is also humble as he reveals common mistakes and owns up to making plenty of them himself, especially in the early days of his development. For me, the most inspiring thing about this book is the way that Gordon reminds us that mediumship is a gift that is meant to be offered in a spirit of love and service. He's a great teacher and it's wonderful that he has finally distilled some of his wisdom into a guide that's both practical and spiritual.
