"Cook has distilled a lifetime of spiritual seeking and learning into a highly readable work that is both a synthesis of ancient arcane teachings and esoteric meanings behind modern world religions, as well as a personal spiritual autobiography. He writes with the attitude of a friend or brother. One gets the sense that he simply wants to get the good news about mankind's divinity and ascent into higher consciousness out to as many people as possible." from a Book Review section of the Lifesteam newsletter.
Being a personal friend of Rick's, and knowing as much as I do about his background and interests, drafting this blog extending an invitation to local community members for a 'signing' of his most recently published book is cause for celebration. In scanning some of the reviews that have already been written, Tony Cardy in New Zealand's, The Guardian Political Review offers a concise assessment of Rick's otherwise spacious text in saying:
The review is especially intriguing in its speculation about "what kind of economic system will prevail when the old world is swept away and a new world of love and compassion comes into being". Regardless of what this future may actually look like though, but as Cardy phrases it, "the world is at the beginning of a major transformation. It will be a spiritual revolution that will affect every person in the world."
