A New York Times bestselling author and documentary filmmaker presents the definitive biography of Edgar Cayce, the father of the New Age and harbinger of alternative medicine—the mesmerizing story of a simple man with a complex gift. Edgar Cayce Jr., born in 1877 in rural Kentucky and educated only through the eighth grade, was a man with special powers. Known as the “sleeping prophet,” Cayce was an endless source of information. Awake, he had no knowledge of any of the subjects he discussed, but in a trance he prescribed medical treatments, predicted future world events, interpreted past lives (including the life of Jesus Christ), designed innovative technologies, wrote screenplays, spoke in foreign languages, and brought spiritual messages from the “other side.” Although he never examined patients and often gave trance readings for people hundreds of miles away, his medical diagnoses were deemed to be correct nearly ninety per cent of the time, and his predictions were often uncannily accurate. The first researcher to have unlimited access to thousands of Cayce’s documents, Sidney Kirkpatrick has written a fascinating, definitive biography of a humble man whose psychic work prefigured the New Age movement and the alternative-health movement and brought him a huge following.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sidney D. Kirkpatrick does an excellent job of giving a complete chronicle of Cayce’s life. He holds us spellbound with an engrossing narrative of this remarkable man.” Sylvia Browne, New York Times bestselling author
“This engaging biography reads like a codex for the New Age…[and] lets the facts of his subject’s life speak for themselves.” New Yorker
“Presents an evenhanded story about the life of this American prophet…What makes this biography especially fresh and lasting is Kirkpatrick’s excellent storytelling skills… Kirkpatrick always stays grounded in documented facts and clear information. Cayce aficionados will enjoy especially the accounts of encounters with George Gershwin, Marilyn Monroe, and even the likelihood that he met with President Woodrow Wilson.” Amazon.com
“Presents what every Cayce fan hungers for: a detailed and complete biography that reveals family secrets that were deemed too sensitive to include in earlier works, as well as the long-suppressed identities of the many famous people, from Woodrow Wilson to Thomas Edison, who benefited from Cayce’s readings.” Booklist
“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 reading…[A] fair, fascinating, and well-researched biography of one of twentieth-century America’s most famous psychics.” Library Journal
“There have been several hundred books written about my grandfather, but this definitive biography is in a class by itself. A tour de force, this book carefully documents startling new details of his life and clearly articulates the complex and life-transforming concepts of his psychic readings. For anyone curious about the life and work of Edgar Cayce, this book should be at the top of your reading list.” Charles Thomas Cayce, grandson of Edgar Cayce
