Preferably... watch the movie instead, April 20, 2003
Reviewer: chris banez lim "Crutchead" (Philippines) - See all my reviews
Michel de Nostredame is perhaps indeed one of the most undisputed 'psychics' ever known to man. His reputation as a defied prophet, mainly in our modern times, is made much likely due to the many false interpretations of self-professed 'interpreters' to his prophecies - that when time shows their fallacies, it is Nostradamus' name who suffered in the result.
Although not to the full extent of taking some high acclaim about her abilities to interpret Nostradamus' prophecies like the number of the other so-called interpreters -- Erika Cheetham is not too far being different from the number of these "Nostradamus experts"; her quatrain interpretations of Nostradamus' prophecies either lack accuracy or they miss out on some overlooked detail to further identify the intended meaning from Nostradamus' writings. Her commentaries on some of the verses interpreted are even at times self-confessionary in admitting to this.
THE MAN WHO SAW TOMORROW however, may be good enough to fill in for other books in the study of Nostradamus' works; the author, along with a biographical chapter found in the introduction to this book on the life of Nostradamus, have provided commentaries on some of the Century Quatrains, and is quite impressive with her notes for the portions pertaining to Hitler, Queen Catherine, and Napoleon. (I don't buy much of the stuff about the over-rated Kennedys though).
This book (which is the basis and companion to the film of the same title hosted by Orson Welles) contains all of Nostradamus' ten Century text writings with the authors' personal translations for each verse.

But if you would like to save some of your time, watch the movie instead.
