5.0 out of 5 stars Good read 12 May 2007
Good read, was wanting a bit more from the book, but some good insights into the work and mind of Colin were included. In some ways you got to understand more about what he does and how it works. For him. His personality shines through, and you can hear him speak through the words. That gentle way and manner that we have all come to love and enjoy on the stages and shows, and on the television with his show The Sixth Sense. Would like to have heard more of his thoughts and experiences with the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live in good spirits 6 Aug. 2007
By Leon
Colin, being well aware of his popularity, has written a book which nevertheless resists the temptation to be all about himself and instead, and with the best of intentions I think, goes through a variety of self-help and life lesson techniques, drawing on Colin's considerable knowledge as a bereavement counsellor. Mediums can get a bad press and even be confused with illusionists such as Derren Brown and Marc Salem who are very highly skilled in their own right. Whilst my understanding of mentalists' craft is pretty good (although not comprehensive) I don't see true similarities with proper (ie genuine) mediumship. This book includes an insight into how mediums may receive messages and help people. It also touches upon how Colin "ticks" and how he fully developed to much success in this sphere. He touches upon inspiring examples such as the seemingly random visitors who actually turned out to be in his life for a very good reason indeed, as he engaged in the humdrum of running his family's carpet showroom. We learn of important influences such as Michael, and Colin's view of friends and other coping mechanisms. The famous trumpet incident is gone into and described as inspiration to not let setbacks, however they may be perceived by others, to hold you down. Some of the mediumship examples and inspirational stories come from Colin's television programme, 6ixth Sense, but he adds greater value by explaining in some depth as to what he and the sitter derived from the encounter. Although the book does at times pump out cliched pop psychology, it's message about making the most of now would frankly be hard to convey in any other way. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality book, by a quality man. 22 Aug. 2007
I read this book on Holiday, and was enthralled by the words of comfort, support, and good old fashioned positive thinking,! that in a fast moving world as the one we live in today, it made stop, and take stock, re-asses, prioritise and move on!
I wanted to leave my copy in my hotel book shelf for all to share, but knew I would want to read it again,and again!
I am home now and reading it for a second time, A Brilliant Read, Congratulations and sincere thanks to Colin Fry for sharing his vocation.

A very inspiring book that will change the way you look & feel about life.
No amount of stars can do this book justice, just go out and get a copy.
This book will help you to see life and death in some many positive ways and once you finishing reading it, im almost certain it will help you cope with anything that life has to throw at you.
I am very much a believer when it comes to life after death and im glad people like Colin give hope and believe to us all.
A book worth reading again and again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 11 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love to see Colin Fry at work on TV, and was happy to buy ALL of his books, every one of which I think was disappointing. In Secrets from the Afterlife at the end of each chapter a "secret" was revealed relating to the content of that chapter. Not a "secret" at all but common sense! From the title I had expected to learn something about the "secrets" of the spirit world itself, but there was nothing at all. I think I may have expected too much. I had hoped he would reveal his personal experiences and knowledge of the spirit world itself, to explain what he thinks it must be like, how he perceives God or indeed if he believes in God. Each time I buy a book like this, I hope that the author will tell us what they believe to be true regarding life after the death. I have yet to find one! I didn't even finish one book, just boring. Sorry Colin!

5.0 out of 5 stars Colin Fry - Life before Death 31 Mar. 2010
Colin Fry comes over as a very genuine, humane person who's book is excellent. It is very easy to understand and gives very credible information on the whole life/death situation which is much more acceptable in my view than the usual religious view. I felt very comforted and informed after reading this book which answered many questions for me. Thank you Colin Fry. TONY
