Editorial Reviews

Review

"We can overhaul the global financial system, bridge the gulf between science and religion and overcome the divisions that lead to wars. There is a better way, and it's up to us to be the best we can be, says Olsen in his grand-vision book." —Nexus


"The introduction of Modern Esoteric alone is the most thought-provoking piece I've read in years. This book is for two kinds of people: Those who already know or suspect that the world is not as we have been led to believe and for those are just beginning to figure that out." —Michael Braunstein, Omaha Reader

You have to read with an open mind.

It offers deep aspects of truth that we are all entitled to, and which will help us evolve in the direction of thriving (last section of the book).
Cori Gunnells
He has done extensive research and what I like the most is that he presents information not his opinion and makes you think and reason.

Format: Kindle Edition
I've never posted a review on a book before but this edition awed me. The Introduction alone is the most thought-provoking piece I've read in years. Who is this book for? Two kinds of people: Those who already suspect we've been "sold a bill of goods" by the world as we are led to believe it; and secondly, for those who never imagined things were anything other than mainstream media and pols tell us. If you already know a lot about the esoteric, the hidden realities that exist, then this book does two things: It confirms, supports and validates that which you may suspect and secondly, for those who think they know how all the webs weave, you'll find out more than you suspected. For those who are just beginning to wonder if the world may have a hidden reality, then this book will have something new for you on every page. I have never read an author who has a deeper knowledge and greater grasp on all the connected dots that will amaze and astonish. Olsen doesn't appear to have any particular axe to grind or position that he demands of the reader. He simply asks, "What if there's a different way to look at the world?" and then exposes evidence why that is a valid question. From chemtrails, ancient cults that still exist today, to conspiracy theories that have been shown to be truth, to exposing the cartels that control civilization and much much more, Olsen will keep the reader spellbound and bouncing from one google search to another. You'll go, "Wow, is that really true?" then do a google search and find out: "Yes, Olsen knows what he's talking about." And finally, it's gratifying that Olsen takes a positive and optimistic stance on what could be a very depressing and hopeless topic. Five stars.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great read with a thorough exploration of all the esoteric subjects!!!! Author Brad Olsen believes the dawn of our new society is faced on the one hand with global tyranny, or we may be able to overcome the oppression and advance towards universal abundance and enlightenment. Without government and media manipulation this can all be possible, and the Golden Age may be attained with the rapid advancement of human consciousness. He gets into every chapter with great detail.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to open pandoras box and see what may be there !~~~
Many maybe subjects that are revealed to digest and decipher on our own but they are all laid out here for us to ponder!~~

Pick it up !!!
It's uber interesting!~~~~

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Steve M on August 7, 2014
Format: Paperback
This engrossing read in some ways builds upon Brad’s predecessor tome Future Esoteric, but it truly stands tall on its own! This interesting volume takes more of an approach to directly illuminate many ways to apply what is presented to improve your life, others’ lives, and the world around us.

It delves quite deeply into a good balance of pivotal topics that are laid out in a very digestible, thoughtful manner, while other areas are introduced clearly in good context, yet are left for you to research further if desired. Most people will feel compelled to dig even further into cited sources on the fascinating subjects.

Virtually every featured topic area is of such high existential importance that re-reading sections on a regular basis will remind us of how we should be spending our precious time, or about what is crucially important to focus on every single day while we all attend ‘earth school’!

Format: Paperback
Brad Olsen has once again written another exceptional, well researched and documented book in his esoteric series. Anyone truly interested in a deeper review of our history on Earth, information pertaining to how the masses have been manipulated to see only the most basic and propagandized version of truth, and the potential we all have to awaken, should read this book. It offers deep aspects of truth that we are all entitled to, and which will help us evolve in the direction of thriving (last section of the book). There are darker elements at play that most are unaware of, but that affect each and every one of us - such as Agenda 21, and eugenics. These are programs and plans of the most evil, and forces that we need to be aware of so that we can rise to defeat them. Brad introduces these elements in a way that helps the reader understand how insidious they are, how we have been manipulated and lied to, as well as how we can wake up and change the course of our future and restore empowerment in our lives.
You won't be sorry your read this book. Keep a pencil handy. It reads easily, yet also serves as a resource you'll want to return to again and again. It is very comprehensive and skillfully presented and organized.

Even though I was familiar with most of the information in this book the way the author summarizes it all is better than any of the many books I've read. I wish he wrote this years ago it's about 25 books in one.

He has done extensive research and what I like the most is that he presents information not his opinion and makes you think and reason.

Excellent book - it will have you researching even further. Can't wait to read Future Esoteric.

More About the Author

BRAD OLSEN's passion for writing goes far beyond his book publishing business or the online content he produces.

He has appeared on dozens of television and nationally syndicated radio shows over the course of two decades.

Between writing online and print publication articles, new book chapters, and posting on social media, he also manages various websites, does marketing work, special sales fulfillment, administrative tasks, manages various projects with outsourced collaborators, and produces one of the largest festivals in The City. Wearing his publisher's hat, he makes the stated goal of only releasing only the kinds of books he would value owning himself, which incorporates thought-provoking and critical content, and with a wide appeal to readers. His book publishing business CCC Publishing is distributed by Independent Publishers Group.

In a change of editorial direction, award-winning travel writer Brad Olsen announced the release of "The Esoteric Series" in early 2013, with the release of two books in two years.

"Sacred Places Around the World" was reissued as a second edition in February, 2004, and the final book in the series was "Sacred Places Europe: 108 Destinations," released March, 2007. Both titles were nominated as "Travel Guide of the Year" by Foreword Magazine.

A PASSION FOR PUBLISHING
Brad Olsen has been a published artist since he was 14 years old.
