Part memoir, part spiritual exploration, part inspiring stories, Expect the Unexpected provides wisdom, knowledge, insight, and support for communicating with and tapping into spiritual realms we do not fully understand.
Bill Philipps had the kind of childhood that seems too tragic to be true — drug-addicted parents, parental kidnapping, homelessness. At age fourteen, he watched his mother die. Two days later she appeared to him, letting him know she was spiritually alive. From then on, spirits “knocked on his door.” He tried to ignore them. He wanted to be “normal.” But as he pursued his singing gift at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, his psychic gift pressed for a hearing. As Philipps began giving readings as a psychic medium, and witnessed the comfort the spirits offered, he came to accept and honor his abilities.
With testimonies from a breadth of people — everyday men and women, celebrities, business leaders, and one-time skeptics who had attitudes nothing short of cynical — Expect the Unexpected is an honest firsthand account of how spirits communicate with Philipps, why he believes they chose him to do this, and how he works with them to ultimately convey their messages. As Philipps confirms, it is normal to ask questions about what happens to our loved ones after death and to hope to reconnect with them. The inspiring personal stories of those he has helped illustrate what can happen when we seek connection and answers. He offers insight and suggestions to help you ask for and receive signs with or without a medium and shows why he is convinced that readings always contain the possibility for love, peace, healing, and hope.
“Bill Philipps’s book is like a spiritual spa day. It is as peaceful and powerful as the man himself. You will learn so much about the spirits and yourself.”
— Dorothy Lucey, entertainment reporter and former cohost of Good Day LA

“‘Always be prepared for surprises’ is a lesson I have learned over two decades of conducting scientific research on mediumship and life after death. Expect the Unexpected expresses this truth in a clear and convincing manner. This beautifully written book is educational and enlightening — well worth reading for believers and skeptics alike.”
— Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, professor, University of Arizona, and author of The Afterlife Experiments and The Sacred Promise
“To read Bill Philipps’s writing is to be held by his spirit. He is a force of goodwill on this earth, and he heals hearts. His stories teach us that mediums are real and that passing on is not scary but simply a change in location, to a location that is only accessible with an open heart. I am grateful for Bill Philipps. I am grateful for his book.”
— Christine Woods, actress, Hello Ladies and The Walking Dead
“This book not only gives evidence of life after death but also gives a very accurate view of the struggles a pure psychic medium goes through. Bill Philipps is real, down-to-earth, humble, and obviously very gifted, and I’m so grateful he wrote this book. Another hundred pages would still be too short.”
— Echo Bodine, author of Echoes of the Soul and The Gift
“This book captures the wonder of communication with the afterlife, a wonder felt not just by the deceased’s families and friends, but also by the mediums themselves. Bill Philipps’s insiders’ accounts, written with energy and conviction, demonstrate again and again the maxim of professional mediumship: the dead are always right.”
— Julia Assante, PhD, author of The Last Frontier
“Philipps writes with humility, respect, and compassion. It’s clear that his intent is to help, not to impress. He speaks, not from a pedestal, but toe-to-toe with the people who seek his help....They will find this book to be a lighthouse on the path to healing and serenity.”
