Summary

The Spirits Book (1857), written by Allan Kardec, is widely regarded as the most important piece of writing in the spiritist canon. It is the first in a series of five books that Kardec wrote that are collectively known as the Spiritist Codification. Although the other four books, The Medium's Book, The Gospel According to Spiritism, Heaven and Hell, and The Genesis According to Spiritism, are of great importance to the Spiritist movement, it is The Spirits Book that lays out the doctrine of the belief system.

Unacceptable Narration, Good Content

Horrible choice of narrator, didn't like the pacing. Also, for a book which is mostly a Q&A style, two voices are required for better understanding. In a lot of cases I got lost in the narration because it changed from the questions to the answers and vice versa with the same voice and pacing. Recommend to read the book instead of listening to this narration.

very good information

I got this book after watching Kardec on Netflix. the information is excellent. There is some audio errors, especially in one chapter where it sounds completely unedited. But the information is worth over looking that. It is encouraging to see the wisdom of Spirit has been imparted through the ages, for those ready to hear it.

Not actually a spirits book

More like a brainwashing book. Lots of explanations of what is "true", just because. Great for loyal subjects of some blind faith of a christian God.
