5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting and Inspiring! December 2, 2013
By Drew
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a rare pleasure to read a book written as authentically and openly as this one. From his insights into life and love, to his wild adventures in pursuit of happiness, Marty tells all in this must-read autobiography of a self-made entrepreneur, seeker of truth, and meditation guru. I highly recommend this book! You won't be able to put it down... Although it's long, the chapters and material is easy to digest and flows smoothly.

Being pulled into Martin Birritella's "Field of Love" is a roller coaster ride of wonder and amazement. In a refreshingly candid story of his life, he reveals his secret to living authentically; his story shows that it is possible to be successful and fulfilled in both what one may call the "real" world and in the world of the spirit. His personal story and experiences are so intriguing that at times it is clear a larger hand is at work. In the end, love is at the core of it all. His life story stands as a clear representation that if one learns to listen to their heart, you too will find the field of love. And the best part, I suspect Birrettella is waiting for you there too!

Three stars (its OK) because it was well written and is an autobiography. I kept reading and hoping to get to some enlightened part. This is a story of a persons life who had a mystical experience when young and which he shut down; and then went to absurd extremes in life, justifying them as the road to recapture that experience. Although he grew through some of his excesses, he never quite got it. He explained creating million dollar companies with clever hooks to sell product made in Asian sweat shops. He went from a relationship, to prostitutes, to wild sex, to having a real loving relationship. He did evolve some, but throughout you could sense his desire to be the self appointed guru.

In the end he concludes everything is just perfect and all is as it is meant to be. He still has his statue of his guru that he worships, his nice house in Sedona, ... Never mind global suffering or species extinction - everything is just perfect and as it should be - sorry: I don't buy it.

He has learned not to beat himself up, which is something we all must do, but he still seems to be missing the essence.: There is a humbleness in real spiritual life and in the end he has traded self inquiry and psychological healing for enlightenment. From what he said, I think his father, the baker, was closer than he ever will be. I do think meditation is an essential aspect in the life for an authentic human. I do believe in humanistic love towards those whom we relate to and ourselves. However, I think that we all really need a deep passion if we are to bring civilized society to Earth (that would be where everyone is fed a healthy diet, has a safe place to live, has the opportunity to express their full potential, ...). I don't have answers, but you will not find them here either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! November 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading this book. Once you've read the first few pages, it is actually hard to put it down! The author's devotion and one-pointedness to finding the truth, year after year after year, is truly inspiring. The kindness with which he lived his life and his utter faith that things will always turn out for the best as long as you stay in the "field of love" as he calls it, are to me the most valuable lessons from his book. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read Field of Love and be inspired November 22, 2013
By Nancy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Martin Birrittella’s memoir Field of Love is the story of one man’s search for enlightenment. Birrittella was driven to pursue financial stability not for its accompanying status or success according to worldly terms, but as a means of allowing the fulfillment of the deepest yearnings of his spirit and soul – yearnings which his experience and intellect confirmed to be not just real, but possible and accessible.

The obvious comparison of Birrittella’s Field of Love with Thomas Merton’s The Seven Storey Mountain is undeniable. Merton’s autobiographical account of his search for communion with the Divine according to the teachings and practices of the Catholic Church as a Trappist monk parallels Birrittella’s journey and conviction which drove him in its pursuit: that “an all-encompassing, unified field of love was omnipresent and surrounding [him] at all times.” Merton’s “communion with the Divine” and Birrittela’s “field of love” are of course one in the same. And it is available to anyone who seeks it with sincerity and resolve, as Birrittella attests.

The same intimate honesty draws readers of both chronicles into the spell-binding tale of the struggle to answer the call for an authentic life lived according to our deepest capacities, and in service to others. Field of Love – like The Seven Storey Mountain – is less about the details of one man’s life than it is about allowing the passionate and personal telling of his journey to inspire your own. Perhaps Merton said it best in his introduction to the Japanese translation of The Seven Storey Mountain: "I seek to speak to you, in some way, as your own self. Who can tell what this may mean? I myself do not know, but if you listen, things will be said that are perhaps not written in this book. And this will be due not to me but to the One who lives and speaks in both."

Allow yourself to listen and be inspired: read Field of Love.
