Editorial Reviews


“Richard Grossinger is one of the most original spiritual writers of our time. Gifted with an extraordinary range of knowledge, a passionately idiosyncratic mind, and a style whose electric elegance married with profound wisdom challenges all of us to go deeper into the adventure of transformation that our time is demanding. This book will open up the essential questions of the Earth to all those who are lucky enough to read it and will raise the level of conversation about them to a new height of complexity, passion, and action. All of Richard’s work is fascinating and inspired; but this book is his most important yet. I cannot recommend it highly enough.”
—Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism and The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi

“Deep within everyone lies a longing for a handbook of the future, an internal wisdom that helps us navigate the ever-expanding unknown. If read carefully and contemplatively, this astounding document will facilitate your joyfully expanding into the future rather than fearfully contracting away from it. The World-Spirit is grateful.”
—Robert Sardello, author of Love and the Soul: Creating a Future for Earth

“I think 2013 is fantastic. These adjectives and phrases came to my mind: brilliant, intimate, humorous, erudite, sophisticated. Grossinger has a great synthetic mind and is a master of poetic prose and imaginative, free-ranging scholarship.”
—Michael J. Harner, author of The Way of the Shaman

“In 2013, Grossinger illuminates the real-life experience and implications of the techniques and systems he studies; and even more importantly, he models, with kindness and generosity, how to engage life maturely and fearlessly. Mixing honesty, self-reflection, fascination, and openness to adventure, he meets life in a way that can give each of us everything to look forward to now, in 2012, and beyond.”
—John Friedlander, author of Basic Psychic Development: A User’s Guide to Auras, Chakras, & Clairvoyance

“The latest addition to Grossinger’s unique genre, the ‘poetic textbook,’ inspires us to view the panorama of our times inside the details of our lives and the healing story within the history: outrageously vast yet grounded and humane.”
—Frederick Baker, coauthor of Conscious Conception: Elemental Journey Through the Labyrinth of Sexuality

“In 2013, Richard Grossinger delivers a deep and complex, endlessly ranging examination of where we are now, displaying many moods, delving into many worlds. It may seem at odds with the zeitgeist and therefore be imperfectly noticed by those demanding something they can text to their brains, ‘Get to the point, will you?’ But this brilliant and luminous book echoes the play of all of our minds and is to be treasured.”
—Michael Brownstein, author of World on Fire

In his latest book, 2013, Richard Grossinger, America’s great unsung cultural prophet, melds his personal explorations and cosmic reflections to elevate prophecy to a more serving and liberating role.”
—Dharma Café

"A fascinating commentator on the way the world is and will be in the near future written with candour, honestly and an unashamed lack of apology for telling it the way it is."
—My Spirit Radio

I bought this book hoping to learn more about how I might personally respond to the challenges of this amazing time we are in. While the author is undenyably brilliant and he does have fascinating and important things to say and reflect upon, he has, in my opinion, a lack of awareness of his reader. It appears to me that this is one long (600 pages), unabridged rumination, perhaps a private journal of several years - not what I expected. I didn't have a clear understanding of the kind of book it was, and I probably wouldn't have bought it if I had known.

I wish he had been more selective about what to publish and what to leave out.
He seems to have included everything, and I do mean everything, that passed through his mind as he was writing, and never bothered to ask which items would be of interest or relevance to someone else, and which would not. I found myself wading through descriptions of social events that went badly because the hosts were too shallow and materialistic, diatribes directed at John McCain and Sarah Palin, (well-deserved perhaps but nothing new or particularly well-said) and while I could relate to his point of view and I even agree with him, I don't understand why he would include this stuff in this or any book or why I should want to read it.

Other parts of the book were completely incomphrehensible to me, partly because he referenced so many other works I hadn't read with little or no introduction or explanation, and partly because of his habit of stringing together about ten different metaphors in a single paragraph. We are legumes? That could be an interesting metaphor if I had a clue what he was getting at. Without more information this use of image only makes meaning less accessible.

The problem with this book is that it has too many voices. I felt as if I had gate crashed a cocktail party and was wandering about listening to snippets of conversation here and there.

One of the author's voices sounds like he is channeling a National Geographic staffer, which is great if you like the "scientist trying to be artistic" tone, but which has always made me nauseous. (I won't even read National Geographic if it is the only magazine on the dentist's table.)

Above all, the title is misleading. 2013: Raising the Earth to the Next Vibration does not prepare you for what is actually a grab bag of note book jottings.

Some good editing could have tightened this book into something eminently readable. As it is - chop suey.

Richard Grossinger has humbly offered us another tour de force. For those familiar with his writings, it will come as no surprise that he can tackle a topic like the 2012 predictions with breadth of vision, thoughtfulness and heart. As is his wont, he elevates the discourse far beyond the usual hype and hysteria and gives us all of glimpse of who we are and what we could be. The result is a book full of gems - itself a pearl of great worth. Fittingly, the pearl is the only gem made by a living organism out of its own pain. Likewise, Dr. Grossinger offers a distillation of his own painful road to understanding, and hands to us a milky, luminous sphere of reflection where we can see ourselves and universe glowing, growing and evolving. And as the title 2013 suggests, there is indeed hope for us all.

As we approach the end of 2012 it is refreshing to read a master of words who has explored the subject more thoroughly than most of the aspiring apocalyptics out there. I'll admit I had to go buy a dictionary just to comprehend many of the words he utilizes, only to laugh when I saw that his verbal arsenal far surpasses the standard Webster fare. Internet would be more efficient, but not having consistent access renders me humbly oblivious in particulars...but overall breadth of his intellect is fantastic. I don't think I've read anything like it since William Irwin Thompson, whom he also references on occasion. One can feel confident that the Universe knows what it is about in spite of our fumbling and bungling existence as a species. I love this shining example of what are capable of. I have a new hero!
