5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Derek Fans! 18 Oct 2004
Being a fan of Most Haunted and Derek Acorah, I couldn't resit buying this book. I have not read any of his other books, but found this one provieded a history of Dereks life, from Childhood to the present day, briefly detailing the work he has carried out over the years.
The tone of the book mirrors that of Dereks performance on TV. The book reads as if very softly spoken and is a joy to read but I found myself questioning weather some of the words used in the text had been made up? For anyone who has watched Derek at work they will know he tends to express himself using combinations of words. Dialect aside, he gets his point accross very well.
The Psychic Adventures of Derek Acorah, is both warming and pleasurable to read.
I can safely say, I closed the book with a smile on my face and with a little more knowledge about the world of spirit than when I began.
This is definately a book for any Derek Acorah fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars enlightening and entertaining 17 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of 'Most Haunted'and have always been a bit curious about Derek Acorah's part in it, when he is often taken over by spirits etc, and talking to Sam. I wondered if he was just a failed footballer looking for another way to make his name and money. Having read this book, I am now a big fan of his! He explains his first encounter of seeing a spirit, and how he grew up with this gift. He tells some facinating stories of spirit encounters and how he is affected, and also tells you all about his relationship with Sam, who is his spirit guide. He tells a really funny story about how he gets pestered by spirits when trying to take time out from his work. I would recommend this book to believers and sceptics, and I bet even the sceptics would struggle not believe in the spirit world, even just a bit!!

Derek Acorah's latest book certainly lives up to expectations for all those interested in his highly entertaining television and theatre appearances. Derek's writing style is compelling from beginning to end as he explains his first psychic experience to his rise and rise as a household name. His book contains numerous short stories which recount his experiences working with individual clients to team investigations including the International Society for Paranormal Research and the Most Haunted series. I found each story interesting and heart warming as Derek relayed his positive nature and humour to most of the book. Those who are aware of Derek's spirit guide Sam will also be treated to an insight into their relationship and adventures together as they encounter good natured and malevolent spirits. This truly is an amazing book which I would highly recommend to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Wonderful Man 1 Nov 2004
By ALR2011
This book was delightful!
For any Derek Acorah fan this book was tenderly written by the charming television Psychic.
With short, easy to read chapters covering from his early years as a psychic to a mature renowned medium, this little book gives a loving insight into his life, work and experiences as a meduim.
If familiar with the TV show Most Haunted, you'll see that the narration of his tales are told in his enthusastic way, showing a true love for his work for spirit and the adventures it has given him along the way.
The gentle nature of Derek Acorah and Sam his spirit guide, are shown through his respect for those he gives readings to and those he receives the messages from.
A true inspiration and an overall incredible life story...

5.0 out of 5 stars shan hendry-sceptic 9 Dec 2004
I have always been a fan of poking fun of the so-called mediumistic abilities, so when a friend recommended to me I read this book I poo-pooed the idea straight away. Having seen the elusive mr Acorah on the most haunted programmes I was intrigued to read that he had once been a pro-footballer and his life had been pretty normal up to a certain point in time. To be honest the narrative of the book was so compelling and down to earth (not intended as a pun!!) that I the sceptic could not put it down. Having opened my mind suitably Derek Acorah's simple story telling and recollections are a must for believers, fans and sceptics alike-a must read for the enlightened!! I've even gone so far as to pre order the new book and buy the first-long live Derek Acorah

Derek Acorah is one of Britain's most famous psychic mediums and is well known as a result of his TV shows. This book is a must for anyone interested in parapsychology or the world of spirit. Acorah here traces his career as a clairvoyant and medium and the many contacts he has had with those in the spirit world.

When Derek was a child he was frightened a man on the stairs of his home, and told his mother and grandmother who showed him a picture of his late grandfather who died before Derek was born. Derek identified the photograph as being that of the man he met on the stairs and his grandmother affirmed that "He's the next. Derek will be the next person in the family to work for the spirit"

The author describes his 'people friendly' spiritualism' , and his work in spiritualist churches, as well as his famous TV shows such as 'Most Haunted', his connection with people who have passed to the spirit side and have wanted to communicate with the loved ones they have left behind. As Acorah explains nobody really dies, but simply passes from the physical ream to the world of sprit. In many cases people's lives have been changed for the better on advice of their departed loved ones when they have been summoned by Acorah and have told their living relatives what they needed to know. This makes for some very moving anecdotes. Acorah describes his relationships with his invaluable spirit guide, Sam, who he had known in a life two thousand years before in Ethiopia.

Acorah describes his meetings with Jack the Ripper's victims, and his revelations of who The ripper may have been, definitely someone from a genteel background, and that there ware copycat murders at the time based on his actions.
