For fans of TLC’s Long Island Medium and anyone
interested in the big questions of life, death, and finding out
what’s important in between, New York Times bestselling
author and medium Theresa Caputo shares how she discovered her gift and
her many encounters with Spirit.

Beloved medium Theresa Caputo,
star of the hit television show Long Island Medium, opens the
door to her world and invites you to experience her exceptional gift of
communicating with those who’ve crossed over to the Other Side.
The always funny, frank, and down-to-earth medium—whether
she’s talking to her family, the local butcher, or the souls of
those who’ve passed on—began communicating with Spirit at
the age of four, but didn’t fully accept her gift until she was
thirty-three years old. She had a good life as a busy wife and working
mom, but also suffered from chronic anxiety that, as it turned out, came
from ignoring her abilities. Once Theresa began channeling, she
realized that she felt much better after delivering a message from
Spirit and releasing that energy. Since then she’ s used her
extraordinary gift to help people heal from the loss of their loved
ones.

Theresa feels that it’s her purpose to make us all
aware that there is more to life than what we see here in the physical
world. She wants you to know that your deceased loved ones are safe and
at peace, and that they’re now with you in a different
way—watching over you, loving you, and assisting you from the
Other Side. She also wants you to realize that the unexplainable things
you sense and feel from these souls are real, and that it’s
healthy and essential to acknowledge them.

There’s
More to Life Than This
lends insight on how Theresa’s
mediumship works, what happens to your soul when you die, what Spirit
says Heaven is like, what the deceased want you to know, the importance
of living a positive life, and the many roles that your family, friends,
angels, guides, souls of faith, and God play here and in the afterlife.
It also explores how to safely connect with Spirit, so that you can
recognize when your loved ones are reaching out.

Through
Theresa’s personal story, compelling anecdotes, and fascinating
client readings, she teaches us about how she communicates with Spirit
and helps us to understand and appreciate the important lessons and
touching messages that we’re meant to embrace every day.

I've read a number of books over the years by psychics or mediums. Theresa is the ONLY one who, for me, doesn't raise skepticism. Her main purpose of using her gift is healing, and she does such a wonderful job of helping people with what can be such a hard part of life. She gives such an amazing view of how our soul lives on after the physical world, and reminds the reader that there is one Higher Power, whether you choose to call this God or by any other name.

Although I don't feel like I have the gift that Theresa does, I do feel that my loved ones who have passed are safe, secure and that their Spirit remains with me, which is such a blessing in itself. I highly recommend this book to everyone. ...more

Alright so why did I give this book 4 stars? Because it was actually pretty good. I expected it to just be strictly entertainment, but for me personally, it went beyond entertainment and I actually found some of the things she said about the other side, comforting. I lost my father suddenly at the age of 12 and since then I've been searching for answers.

Theresa Caputo is known for her big hair, outrageous nails and crazy outfits, but she is more than that. What I was most impressed about in this book was when she talks about her childhood going into her adult years and how she experienced night terrors, terrible panic attacks, avoided going most places unless they were her "safe" zones, and at times she became agoraphobic. This part made me think maybe just maybe she is for real. If you know anything about and or are a sensitive, many of them suffer from exactly what she suffered from. Who knows it could be made up but the book really made me like her.

If you are into this mediums or psychics I say give this book a try. If you are looking for some comfort because you are grieving for a loved one, this book is not half bad. ...more

I've been putting of the review of this book.. I don't know how to proceed to do it. I think it is the fact that it deals with religion and spirituality and I don't want to step in anybodies toes, so to speak.

Here goes nothing...

For those who have seen the show "Long Island Medium" and enjoy it, this book is going to be a breeze. It's like having Theresa Caputo talking in your head. You would be reading this whole book with her voice in your mind.

She gives some examples, and stories, just like I've been putting of the review of this book.. I don't know how to proceed to do it. I think it is the fact that it deals with religion and spirituality and I don't want to step in anybodies toes, so to speak.

Here goes nothing...

For those who have seen the show "Long Island Medium" and enjoy it, this book is going to be a breeze. It's like having Theresa Caputo talking in your head. You would be reading this whole book with her voice in your mind.

She gives some examples, and stories, just like the ones we love to see in her show, and that always make us cry. At the same time, she goes beyond by explaining everything that goes behind cameras, as well as in her being as she receives the messages from the other side.

She answers some questions, such as... when did she know she had that talent? what does heaven look like? how does she receive her messages? how does she see spirits? Has she spoken to God? Has she been in contact with evil spirits? demons? what is it like to die? to cross over? and many more....

I consider myself an agnostic at the moment. I was raised a Roman Catholic, just like Theresa, and as I was reading about God, Jesus, The Virgin Mary, the Saints, Angels, and everything associated with the Catholic faith, I kind of got a little weary, thinking, Oh boy, here we go, preaching!!

I was surprised to find out otherwise. Theresa writes that no matter what faith you follow, in the end we all go the same place and we meet with our creator (whether is Yawhve, God, etc.) To her, her visions and symbols represent the Catholic faith because she knows that this will make it easier for her to understand and interpret it and explain it to others. Were she to practice a different faith, her talent would go hand in hand with that faith.

Another thing that I found peculiar, it that if you know anything about the Catholic faith is that reincarnation is a big NO. you die and either you go to heaven or hell or stay for a while in purgatory until you're clean enough to enjoy the Heavens. but there is no such thing as having multiple lives. Theresa being strong in the Catholic faith has embraced the message from the other side as true, even if it contradicts her strict Catholic faith. I'm not going to spoil it for you but it does sounds like re-incarnation (a belief that, if I'm not mistaken is seen in Buddhism and Hinduism faith) and honestly it sounds like a lot of fun...

In conclusion, I found this book is not preachy at all. Theresa is just telling us her story, sharing her special talent, how she acquired it, how she conveys it and communicates to use her knowledge of the other side.

Is it all true? I don't know. Like everything else it is just a matter of faith.... Do I believe it? I don't know either... but It kept my mind entertained and it all sounded very pretty, attractive, comforting. I'll keep looking for answers.

If you love the show I recommend this book
If you have lost someone and need some comfort, I recommend this book
If you are curious about an image of the afterlife (or a least a point of view), I recommend this book

No matter what faith you practice, you can still enjoy it.

I have to admit that I am a little conflicted about this book. I do love the show, I did like the book, but not for the reasons a fan might have.

There are many people that think she is faking it all - one of the more vocal being "The Soup". I don't know where I stand anymore, but this was my takeaway from my research, her show, her book, and my own personal opinion: Does it matter? If she's helping grieving people process the death's of their loved ones should it matter how it's happening? This woman could be lying through her teeth, and yet, after reading her book I started praying again - after almost 20 years of not praying. Was that her? Was that God? Was it just the catalyst I needed to connect with the Lord again? Does it matter? It happened, I'm happy, and I feel like that should be the bottom line. ...more

When I saw the ads for Long Island Medium I was sceptical to put it mildly. I thought it was just another crappy American reality tv show starring a big-haired Long Island fraud. After watching a few episodes I was won over by Theresa and her family's genuine warmth and sincerity.

I still didn't expect much from this book which I thought was going to be a bit of fluff to cash in on her fame. I was again proven wrong because this is a very substantial book that grapples with the really big questions. It confirmed much of what I have come to believe about death and spirituality. I also appreciated the insights about religion and the fact that there is no one "true" faith that stands above all others. Each religion is an expression of the divine that is no truer or better than any other faith. We all come from the same God, and the sooner people realise this the sooner we will be able to see through the lies of those who use religion for their own ends.

Despite her glitzy appearance I strongly believe Theresa is the real deal. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering a bereavement or who wants to know more about what happens when we die and how to make the most of the time we have on earth.

Just goes to show you shouldn't judge a Long Island medium by her hair! ...more

Should have wrote this review last night haha but I was so tired from work.

When I first heard of 'Long Island Medium' I brushed it off as ANOTHER reality show (we have way too many of those already) and forgot about it. Then one night mom was channel surfing and put it on... I was bored and figured 'eh, why not?"

I was pleasantly surprised by Theresa, very outgoing and caring person... the messages she delivered to these people were so uplifting and the hope she gives them. I was sold. Every Should have wrote this review last night haha but I was so tired from work.

I was pleasantly surprised by Theresa, very outgoing and caring person... the messages she delivered to these people were so uplifting and the hope she gives them. I was sold. Every episode never fails to make me cry or laugh, alot of times both.

So when I heard that Theresa was coming out with a book I was thrilled :). But also a little wary, only because I wasn't sure if I was ready to listen to this.


This book was just a wonderful read... What Theresa said about heaven/Spirit touched on some of what I believe. Soul bounds and soul circles especially, and her definition of 'soul mates' makes sense to me (someone you share a deep bond with). There's definitely people in my life I feel that connection with.
I always told Jessie and Stephanie that it seems we picked up right where we left off. I firmly believe we knew each other in other lives, in whatever form. Same with my puppy Tasha, she was my babygirl... one of the sweetest souls you could ever meet. When she died, a part of my soul went with her.

This book touched me in a lot of ways... at times I was even crying in the car.
A few parts made me think of my Pop-Pop (grandfather)... he died in December and I miss him so much. He was such a big presence, it still feels surreal to think of him gone. (Maybe he was the one to give me the push to say 'Heck with it' and just buy the book.

It's hard to pick a favorite part but one of them was when she talked about reincarnation and learning lessons from each life... I've always believed in reincarnation and that people are put into our paths for a reason; I just never thought about it as that they are put in our way to help us learn something from this life. Another thing I wondered was why we didn't remember our past lives if it would help us learn these lessons quicker... all of the explanations Theresa gave made sense to me and reinforced my beliefs about it :).

It was also interesting to hear about different ways Spirit communicates and the guides/guardian angels... it was different yet not so different, if that makes sense. It opens your eyes in a way.

I'm now intrigued also by the concept of past life regressions and meditation as well.

I like to think of myself as spiritual but not religious (I think that's the phrase)... if you don't agree with me, that's fine.. We're all entitled to believe what we want :).


Theresa has a comforting way of talking to you in a way that makes it feel she's sitting right next to you or reaching out through Spirit as the audiobook goes from chapter to chapter. She doesn't push you to believe in everything she does/says or insists her word is gospel. She just lays out the facts as she knows them and leave it up to you as to what you take away from the book.

Highly recommend the audiobook... just hearing Theresa's voice magnified the enjoyment for me. I'm hoping I get to meet this woman one day to tell her in person what her book meant to me.

Theresa's friend Patt also sounds like someone I would love to meet or have a cup of hot cocoa with, maybe if I'm ever in the area *crosses fingers*

Happy reading! ...more

Don't read this if you are an atheist because you will find this book disturbing, but if you have any doubts about the spiritual world this is fine. I like Caputo's personality because she doesn't take herself or life too seriously, which is refreshing.

This is a refreshing take on the afterlife and spirituality in general. The Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo's warm and earthy tone and bubbly personality makes her the kind of person you'd want to have coffee with just to hear her talk about shoes and pasta sauce, mediumship completely aside. Statements like, "On the Other Side, you are literally part of God," like "ornaments…on a Christmas tree" help us to understand abstract concepts in a concrete way.

Much of this book is dedicated to the This is a refreshing take on the afterlife and spirituality in general.

Statements like, "On the Other Side, you are literally part of God," like "ornaments…on a Christmas tree" help us to understand abstract concepts in a concrete way.

Much of this book is dedicated to the techniques that Theresa has learned to hone her gift as well as ways we can become receptive to the presence of our departed loved ones, protects ourselves from negative energy (or evil, if you like, e.g. declaring "Only Spirits who walk in the white light of God are welcome here. All negative energies must leave by the power of God"), and heal from a loved one's death. She also explains a great deal about energy and how it relates to communication between the living and the departed.

There's More to Life Than This joins the bestselling trio of Proof of Heaven (Alexander), 90 Minutes in Heaven (Piper), Heaven Is For Real (Burpo). In contrast to the latter two that stand firmly in the Evangelical Protestant tradition, Theresa asserts that her mission from God is to restore fragile faith in the divine by reconnecting loved ones on both sides of the veil, to heal hearts broken by death, and to spread the message of love and unity. She perceives her Catholic upbringing as merely her personal perceptual framework and asserts that God, the Source, whatever you want to call the divine, transcends the divisions of religion.

This book is a breath of fresh air, full of hope, love, tears, and laughter, highly recommended for popular consumption.

“There’s More To Life Than This” by Theresa Caputo with Kristina Grish, published by Atria Books.

Category – Memoir/Metaphysics Publication Date – October 01, 2013

For those of you who don’t know who Theresa Caputo is, she is the star of the highly successful show on TLC, the “Long Island Medium”.

Category – Memoir/Metaphysics Publication Date – October 01, 2013

For those of you who don’t know who Theresa Caputo is, she is the star of the highly successful show on TLC, the “Long Island Medium”.

Theresa Caputo talks to the dead. She works through a medium she calls Spirit. She was aware of this “gift” in her early life but did not accept it until her early thirties. She comes from an Italian family that is very religious in their Catholic faith. However, Catholicism is not the foundation of her “gift” as any belief in a “God” whether it be Muslim, Baptist, or whatever is acceptable.

The book details her early life and her struggle with realizing she was a medium. It goes on to explain how this happens to her and she uses her “gift”. There are many examples from her show and the many appearances she has made in theatres across the country.

She has been known to be standing in line at a grocery store and suddenly get a message concerning the person in front of her. Theresa deals in only the positive as she has asked her Spirit not to deal in negativity.

The reader will get an idea of what heaven is like and the role of angels and guides in our lives. She provides a lot of good information about coping with the trials and tribulations of life and how what we do here on earth will affect us in the after life. In all honesty I have never seen an episode of the “Long Island Medium” (my wife has seen them all) and I tend to be a skeptic. However, whether she is a true medium or not, Theresa Caputo brings a wonderful message of life, especially to those who are experiencing problems dealing with those who have gone before us.

She is a down to earth, tolerant, genuine person with a great gift who wants to use that gift to help people heal and encourage them to be kinder to each other in this world. She lives next door to the house she grew up in. I appreciated learning more about her. ...more

Awesome book! Contrary to other gifted people of her kind, Theresa chose to focus on a topic that not many "mediums" talk about....GOD. She shares how she truly believes her gift comes from God, and talks openly about her Catholic faith and being a practicing Catholic while delivering messages to those who need to hear from their lost loved ones.

Again, unlike others in her category, Theresa is a different soul----while she does charge for her readings, since she chose to dive into this as her full time job, she does donate a lot of money to charity and her local parish in Hicksville. She and her family are very involved in their parish community, and volunteer their time a lot. ...more

My Mom turned me into a fan of the show. Since her death, I still watch and weep like a baby when I see the reactions that people have to the messages Theresa delivers. The book doesn't deliver that same sense of emotion that you get from the show. I have no problem buying into Theresa being able to talk to dead people, but in the book she talks a lot about reincarnation, vibrations, spiritual healers, spiritual guides, cleansing with sage, etc. Those topics feel very new-age/hippy-dippy to me, My Mom turned me into a fan of the show.

My sister, mom, and me have been watching reruns of Long Island Medium and her new season started, so we were in the mood to check it out again.
I had just read a nonfiction book, so I wasn’t really in the mood for another, but my sister got done with it and passed it along to me.
Going into this, I thought it would be about Theresa’s life and how she reads Spirits. I definitely didn’t know this book was about I think I checked this out once before, but wasn’t in the mood to read it. My sister, mom, and me have been watching reruns of Long Island Medium and her new season started, so we were in the mood to check it out again.

Going into this, I thought it would be about Theresa’s life and how she reads Spirits. I definitely didn’t know this book was about reincarnation, how we all have guides, and how life and the afterlife is all about lessons. This rocked my world, and not in a good way. It made me question things and made me realize life is a whole lot more complicated than even I guessed.

This book ended up being heavy and wordy, and I can’t say I enjoyed reading it. I got this because I’ve always believed in spirits and am a fan of the show. I love the emotion of it, and Theresa’s reading style. Long Island Medium is my favorite medium show. But I’ve never believed in reincarnation, beyond thinking it can be a good storyline for a romance book. There were some things in here that frankly scared me, like reincarnation, and how you review your life and how you made people feel.
I think there should be a warning at the beginning before going in about what all this book covers, because I did NOT know what I was getting into when I started this, and didn’t know of the subjects this book would cover.
I don’t know how I’m supposed to forget the things I’ve read about. Now I’m thinking everything is a dang lesson and wonder if I’m passing or not! Wow, how complicated life is now!
I feel bad for giving this two stars, because I love Long Island Medium. I guess I should stick with the show, because the readings are what I really like watching. I don’t need to get into all these heavy topics.
I don’t mean to imply I didn’t enjoy any of it, because I did. I laughed at parts, teared up during others, and some things gave me chills. Some stories and things were pretty emotional, just like the readings on TV are. Overall though, this wasn’t for me.

I love her show Long Island Medium so I was hoping I would enjoy this, but it fell flat for me. I don’t think it’s necessarily Teresa’s fault, I just didn’t find some of the content interesting or didn’t resonate with me. I’ll just stick to watching the show!
