Kirkus Reviews

Byrd’s memoir almost reads like a suspenseful novel, and readers are sure to be gripped by the possible explanations she provides for (her son's) seemingly inexplicable memories. She also thoughtfully reflects on her own spirituality, and the ways in which her son’s revelations challenged her Christian faith . . . On the whole, this is an affecting portrayal of parenthood, and an affectionate love letter from a mother to her unusual child. An eclectic mix of mystery, memoir, and the supernatural.

This is a wonderful book, intelligent, humorous, and overflowing with spiritual insights —one of the most transformative and thought provoking books I've ever encountered.

A riveting tale of a talented young boy with a love of the game and the natural talent to go along with it. More importantly, it is a story of how a mother's love can defy all logic and move mountains. Cathy Byrd is one heck of a baseball mom and a true advocate for all children.
Dr. Shefali Tsabary
A testimonial to the fact that children can be our greatest teachers when it comes to spirituality and matters of the heart. So many children are providing evidence that we are all in nite spiritual beings having a temporary human experience. A message of light and love that will appeal to baseball fans and non-baseball fans alike.

In her inspirational new book, Cathy Byrd documents the compelling past-life memories of her young son. She also describes her own past-life regression recollections, linking both mother and son in a previous lifetime. "The Boy Who Knew Too Much" is an exciting journey into the mystery and power of past-life memories. I highly recommend this book.

Growing up in the 1970s, I’ve always viewed the Lou Gehrig story as somewhat mystical, from the famous farewell speech to my all-time favorite movie, The Pride of the Yankees. After reading the amazing journey of Cathy Byrd and Christian Haupt, the spirit of Gehrig resonates for the next generation of baseball fans to appreciate.

The story you’re about to read is at once, astounding, riveting, and truly unbelievable, yet before too long, as humanity continues waking up from its deep spiritual sleep, this story will be most believable. The nature of our soul and its adventure is eternal, yet we’ve hidden this from ourselves for too long. For the courage of Cathy Byrd and her family, we can have a front-row seat on the revelations of a child who can see through the veils of time and space. The Boy Who Knew Too Much is about to blow your mind. Enjoy!

Meeting Christian and Cathy Byrd and doing a past life regression with them both allowed me to witness for myself the extraordinary life story of Lou Gehrig and Mom Gehrig. I fell in love with Christian and Cathy, and you will too as you dive into this riveting account of their adventure exploring reincarnation and the deeper truth that love always brings us together life after life. As a result of our work, Christian no longer has asthma and Cathy is fulfilling her soul’s purpose in opening people’s minds to the truth of our eternal existence. After I left their home, I immediately called my friend Dr. Wayne Dyer and with awe and contagious enthusiasm I shared their story with him. I know that as soon as your turn the last page of this exceptional book, you too will be passionately sharing Christian’s and Lou Gehrig’s story with everyone and carrying the light of their soul in your heart.

The Boy Who Knew Too Much is a real life story about a young boy, a talent for baseball, and a memory of a past-life. It poses the most important question you can ask: Do I only live once?  One game, nine innings, and out forever! Or do I live many lives? Beautifully written, with integrity and humor, this gripping story might change the way you choose to play this game called life.

Experience this joyful journey of knowingness. This story will remind you of your own eternal soul and how we timeless beings share this earthly existence with others to learn and experience the connected force of love.

For her debut publishing venture, Cathy Byrd offers a memoir of exceptional intrigue that at times reads like the pursuit of The Divinci Code. Told with the skills of both investigator and spiritual pilgrim, it is also a tale of the connection between mother and child beyond the unexpected—a love story of the spirits.

A soulful memoir about the mystery of life that should be read far and wide.
