Chico Xavier: the Medium of the Century

This is the first biographical and critical study in English of one of the outstanding mediums of all time, through whom more than 450 books were received by ‘automatic writing’ over a seventy year period, few of which until recently were available in English translations.  Extracts from some of Chico’s major works are included and give an idea of the scope and the high quality of the output of this unique medium, whose centenary in 2010 was marked by numerous celebrations, two feature films and a special postage stamp. This book tells the fascinating story of how a primary-school dropout from a poor working-class background rose to become a national hero.
