Not only was it informative ... it was also a 'magic' read.
I loved the counterpoint of the skeptical journalist being trained to open up to her sixth sense. Roz was the perfect student; someone who wasn't a confirmed non-believer but also wasn't a devotee either. I also enjoyed seeing how Mia had to rethink what she actually did in order to teach it.
About 10 years ago I had a health scare and went to a well respected psychic - he told me that my health would be fine and I would be involved in 'the music business' (which was a far cry from the job I did at the time).
Well, less than a year later, he was spot on. Not only was my health okay after 6 months - I also found myself involved with rehearsal rooms and music production (my involvement lasted about a year and a half). Our production company developed a talent who has now become a well-known singer songwriter.
The psychic 'clearly' knew I was going to be there before it happened; this made me believe in spiritualism and also made me fascinated in it.
I enjoy watching TV psychic shows but reading this book was a thousand times better.
I wish every kid at High School would get to read this book as 'required reading' - instead of (or at least as well as) being made to attend other 'religious' education.
The world would be a much, much better place if that happened.

This book is amazing! It is well written, and you can learn along with mia's student. The best thing about it for me was that it stressed how accessable being psychic is. The quick way she describes to relax is extremely useful, and I found myself being able to do the things she described. Of course then I get exited and the images go away! That's just something I have to work on though! Such an easy to read book, it explains everthing that it touches upon. The book also helps keep your fear in check, and will be relieving if, like me, you sometimes doubt the things that happen to you. I truly recommend it as the start to anyones spiritual library. Or to breathe fresh air into your ready started collection. thank you Mia x x x

I found this book fascinating, couldn't put it down. I have read Mia's book The Gift and found it a great read. It brought up a whole set of new concepts that I had never known about including Spirit Guides, I'm hooked now and can't stop reading about the subject. Mia's World was great, the idea that we all have some psychic abilities that can be developed is a fascinating idea. In the book Roz's abilities unfold as the book progresses, I found myself willing her on, her attitudes would be like most of us, interested yet sceptical but by the end of it.....fascinating and engrossing! If you feel you have psychic abilities and need somewhere to start and some encouragement, read this book.

this book has hepled me a lot in my out look on life, changed my believes,is nothing like "the gift" I am always going back and reading bits from it, again and again.
Mia's World is the first book of Mia Dolan's that I've read, I know her mainly through watching her TV series called "Haunted Homes", (excellent series). With being interested in the psychic world I decided to buy this book.
Roz Chissick is a writer and a sceptic of the paranormal, she wanted to do an interview with Mia and find out more about her and her talent to see whether it's something that's real or not.
Mia asks Roz if she'd become a student to let her judge for herself and to see if she had the talent, as she'd had no previous training. Mia reveals more of her fascinating experiences of ghosts, spirits and explains the truth about the dark forces from the other side.
Anyone who is interested in the paranormal, whether you're a fan of Mia's or not, this is an excellent read and would help you to understand more.
The book is written in the form of two people chatting, so it's easier to make out who is saying what as Mia it telling her student what exercises you can do and how to do them. It also makes it easy for the reader to try these exercises out if you wish, (which I did try myself).
This novel is a compulsive and very enjoyable read as well as it being educational at the same time. It's a book I would definitely read again, it's worth ever penny and I highly recommend it. :-)
I look forward to reading other books that Mia Dolan writes. :-)
