As a developing medium, there are many questions we need answers to concerning our ability, but find that many of those questions have no answers no matter how hard we look.

In this book I describe different sides to becoming a medium and give some guidance as to what sort of circle may best suit an individual. I explain how different circle venues and the people who attend and run them can help or hinder progress in this field. I also explain the different techniques that various tutors use and discuss the experiences I've had with the mediums, tutors and lessons I've taken in the circles I've attended. I explain how connections are experienced, made and lost, and the ups and downs to connections made.

If you've read my first book, Fifty-one Percent, you will know that I like ...

Yeah, I took it down. Another review right after his was 5 star and said, "Enough action but not overdone." Then three more good reviews followed that. So, it's pretty much buried now.

Smart move, Wayne.

As I see it, if nobody pays attention to a negative review, it won't have much impact if the majority of the reviews are positive. If you get into an altercation with the reviewer, it could turn ugly and bring more attention to the review than warranted. The main difficulty lies in the author's desire to explain or defend themselves, but if your book is any good, it will weather the storm without your assistance.

It is everybody's right not to like a book for whatever reason. I feel terribly peeved sometimes, but what can I do? I'm about the only person in Germany who does not like potatoes.
Ok, i don't review potatoes but I'd always suggest to take the pasta.
You get the weirdest reviews but if your stuff is good, you will overcome.

Good advice. And I will add that readers will police themselves. I noticed this over the last few days on a weird review. I stayed out of it & let the readers decide. Works for me.  ;)
