My 1st Book: Now Retired: Ghosts and Spirits

On Dec. 18, 2014 I contacted my publisher, CreateSpace and officially retired my first book "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium."  
  I published the first edition of this book 5 years ago this month - in Dec. 2009. It was my very first book. 
  It was a very personal book to me, because it contained all of the amazing ways that my dad communicated to me and my family to prove his spirit was still around us the week of his passing.  It also includes my experiences in detail with the spirit of my first dog, Buzz-Wyatt, who passed in 2005.
  Since I published the book,  I've learned a lot about the paranormal and the book needs some updating. 
 So, although there will always be some copies floating around on Amazon.com, the book will no longer be available.  - My newer books, "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," and "Pets and the Afterlife" are more up-to-date, and I hope you enjoy those.

I've read plenty of books dealing with spirits, ghosts and the like while experimenting and exploring my own gifts. I have to say that none of them ever really delved into the detail and personal level that this books does. It offers a more distinctual look at the supernatural elements around us and how they work. The scientific aspect of it was insightful and answered a lot of questions that I had that other books could not. I give this one 5 stars! A must-read for budding mediums and other psychics, or even if you just want a good source of info about the supernatural!
Format: Paperback
Have you ever wondered how we can tune-in to the other side of the grave or why people who have died want to bother with the living?

Rob Gutro, author of 'Ghost and Spirits: Insights From a Medium,' takes his readers on a personal journey of discovery, sharing his own experiences with ghosts and spirits. By taking us on a tour of haunted sites, revealing his own accounts of family haunting, and telling story after story of how deceased people attempt to grasp our attention, Rob's work encourages us to re-examine what many of us have written off to mere coincidence: People in spirit are very near and communicate with us regularly.

Rob truly knows the power and importance of love and forgiveness -- all lessons we can take away from his book. I know you'll be encouraged by 'Ghosts and Spirits,' and I highly recommend it! - Louis
Helping Ghosts: A Guide to Understanding Lost Spirits from Angels & Ghosts

First and foremost I have to say I met this author and had a very interesting conversation with him. He was very articulate and was well informed on the paranormal. He offered me a proof copy of his book if i would read and give my honest opinion on his book. I want to let you all know I do believe in Ghosts, I have seen Ghosts/Spirits if you believe me or not that is your opinion, I will now give my opinion on this book.

Rob Gutro gives you a insightful break down of paranormal activity, ghosts and haunts in the first few chapters which answer a lot of questions that are normally asked about how,what, where and why paranormal activity happens. The experiences that are written in this book are not only from Rob Gutro's personal experiences and that of his family but also of many other people and historical sites. This book is full of experiences that make you go wow and look at things in a different light. This book is not one of those typical haunting books that you can pick up in gift shop which gives historical "ghost" facts, this is something more real and personal. I truly enjoyed this book and for those looking for answers or just wanting something a little different I recommend this book to you.

Great book

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
