Best of Both Worlds is the true story of how childhood misery and trauma helped Gordon Smith discover a gift that has helped many people throughout the world who are in mourning come to terms with death and bereavement, by working as a medium to put people in touch with their loved ones who have passed over. Gordon Smith's mother, a fiery Irish immigrant, protected the family from the burglars, bullies and violent gangs that lived in the Gorbals, Glasgow. For a while Gordon felt safe in his dangerous neighbourhood. But, when Gordon was only six years old, he was first sexually abused by an older boy. It was during these traumatic episodes that Gordon first realised he could leave his body, and enter a different spiritual dimension. Gradually, he became more aware of premonitions he was having during his everyday life and started to become aware of what people were thinking. Gordon held off telling the story of his discovery of spiritual powers, as he believed his mother would have hated people knowing the poverty they came from or the abuse that her son suffered. After her death last year, Gordon decided it was now time to tell his incredible story from humble beginnings all the way to becoming an internationally praised medium working for some of the most famous and powerful people in the world. His previous volume of memoirs Spirit Messenger was a massive bestseller but only now is he able to tell the unvarnished astonishing truth.
