Based on over twenty-five years of spirit communication and thousands of professional readings, world-famous medium James Van Praagh shares with readers the personal regrets, misgivings, remorse, and, most important, the advice of the dead who have chosen him as a medium. These spirits have a great deal to say about what they have learned and discovered on the other side and how we, the living, can benefit from their experiences.

Unfinished Business is filled with shocking and emotional stories of Van Praagh's communication with loved ones who cross over the barrier between the living and the dead to send messages to those whom they have left behind. Through these pro-found true stories, Van Praagh guides us on an adventure into the spirit world. The lessons for the living that he has learned from these experiences range from the dangers of emotional baggage caused by guilt, fear, and regret to the importance of karma, forgiveness, and taking responsibility for our actions. Van Praagh shares with us now the wisdom that, without him, we would only gain after death.

Van Praagh writes:

"When people shed their physical bodies at death, their spiritual selves see life from a whole new perspective. It's as if they had Lasik surgery. They can finally take off their glasses and see everything more clearly.

"Spirits understand why certain situations had to happen. They are able to recognize the value of others, even their enemies, and what they had to learn from them. They also realize how they could have skipped certain mistakes by not letting their egos get in the way. After crossing into the light, spirits are ever eager to share their newfound knowledge with the living, and I am fortunate to be a beneficiary of spirits' wisdom and guidance, and I am happy to share their insights with you."

    " This book will change your attitude about others, especially if you harbor grudges, and it may just alter your thoughts about death. Well written with an excellent ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ian Drew Forsyth | 2/13/2014

    " Didn't really read it the whole way through, heard though what it claimed. Nice things to believe surely. The style of the book was a bit oversimplified and oversentimental, but then it was about dealing with dead relatives, and he does sound like a good man. "

    " My husband Steve and I saw James Van Praagh in Chicago for ALA. We attended his session and he signed two books for us. I loved his latest book. It is spiritual and talks about forgiveness and love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lynn Marie | 2/7/2014

    " I thought this book was very well written. It provided some excellent insight on how one can try to be a better person now. The concepts that James discussed were not anything new, but were written in such a way that I felt truly inspired. While I was raised Catholic, I don't subscribe to any particular religion now. James had a chapter (or maybe it was part of a chapter) about the difference between spirituality and religion which was right on the mark for me. I think everyone can learn something from this book no matter where your faith come from. "
