This guy is a fraud. If you watch closely, you'll find that he doesn't come up with anything person-specific, he lets people think that he has. He says something, and the person interprets it. In one episode I just watched he asked "Who works in a correctional facility" and this woman says that she does. If nobody had answered that they did, Edward would have tried to fish for anyone who had died who had, if that hadn't worked, he would have started getting even more vague until he got a response.
Besides that, I have read a testimony from a professional debunker (the name escapes me) who got a place in the audience, and described how the audience were sitting or standing in close proximity of the studio microphones before the show, often talking about the people they were hoping to come in contact with, also a mini-bus arrived on the lot with six or seven people in, who later sat down in the audience... spread out, not together. Once in the audience they did not seem to acknowledge one another at all. The stuff he cannot get out of the people more or less speaking into the microphone, or the planted people, he cold reads. It's not that hard.
THIS IS NOT FOR REAL, FOLKS!!! John Edward is a con-man, and should be treated that way.
Watch the episode of Southpark called "The biggest douche in the universe", and get a second opinion.
