Review by Library Journal (2000-09-15)

Psychic healer Cayce (1877-1945) had no medical training yet correctly diagnosed illnesses and prescribed original and effective medical treatments while in a trance. During these "readings", Cayce would also predict future happenings (the 1929 stock market crash, no less) and interpret past lives and historical events. Beginning with Cayce's birth and early years in Kentucky, Kirkpatrick (Lords of Sipan) chronicles Cayce's unsuccessful ventures as a photographer and oil prospector, leading to his eventual decision to devote his life to the work of healing.

Unlike Cayce's other biographers, who were affiliated with the Cayce Foundation, Kirkpatrick steers a middle course; he does not completely believe in or refute the effectiveness of Cayce's medical readings: "The true measure of Edgar Cayce's contribution to medicine rests in the holistic approach he brought to help the people who came to him". This fair, fascinating, and well-researched biography of one of 20th-century America's most famous psychics is recommended for public and academic libraries. DLucille M. Boone, San Jose P.L., CA
