Review

<p align="left">"If ever there was an aptly named book, this is it. In a highly readable and sincere manner, Nothing in This Book Is True, But It's Exactly How Things Are proceeds to thread together every New Age belief and conspiracy theory into a grand unified field theory of kookiness. They're all here: gray aliens, ascended masters, free energy, cattle mutilations, crop circles, rebirthing, earth changes, the Great Pyramid, and secret colonies on Mars. And yet, despite the sheer unbelievability of half the book, the author's goodwill and spiritual intentions are so infectious that the books ends up being a heartwarming experience. Nothing has the potential to become the Cosmic Trigger (Robert Anton Wilson's 1977 psychedelic mind-bender) of the '90s."<p align="left">—Jay Kinney, Wired<p align="left"> <p align="left">"What is really taking place as we head toward the end of this millennium? If conventional explanations don't make sense to you anymore and you want to explore other options, read this book. An insightful, radical view of our planet's history and its future."<p align="left">—Perceptions<p align="left"> <p align="left">"This is an accessible guidebook to consciousness expansion and evolutionary progress which, in effect, restates age-old knowledge, and in so doing reminds us of our heritage as spiritual beings. Frissell tells his account primarily through the experience of one Drunvalo Melchizedek, a 'walk-in' being who claims to be from the thirteenth dimension by way of several vibration-stepping-down incarnations along the way—on this occasion, via a mutual spiritual pact with a male human in 1972. Part of Drunvalo's mission is to remind us that we can assemble within ourselves the universal pattern of creation—our own merkabah vehicles—which will facilitate the evolution of our consciousness as well as that of planet Earth."<p align="left">—Nexus<p align="left"> <p align="left">“I appreciated reading [Nothing in This Book Is True, But It’s Exactly How Things Are] and having the opportunity to adventure outside of my usual range of thinking and envisioning of the human story.”

The only thing wrong with this book is that it takes itself seriously.

I felt really compelled to write a review for this book, being that it has helped me so much and will continue to help anyone willing to read it. It changed me so much in fact that I find it hard to begin this review. One of the major things that stands out about it is it's factual approach to Christ. At the time that I read it, I did not even believe in God, but I believe that the staightforward manner in which this book was written had a lot to do with changing that. It is not written from a religious perspective. That in itself was VERY refreshing. Yet to the author it is common knowledge that God exists as well as His Son Jesus. Though these topics aren't addressed in the typical way, (i.e. preaching and sermonizing) I really began to understand how a God could very well exist and yet be tied into everything I've ever believed (aliens, reincarnation, immortality). What's sad is that the Church today see's many of these things as "New Age", the very reason I hail this book. Anyone interested in finding out the truth about the universe in which we live or the true nature of our souls will not be dissappointed with it. I especially recommend this book to any Christian who holds beliefs that are labeled New Age or are just plain seeking. Like I said, it is not written from a religious perspective, is a very easy read. Thank you to the powers that be for letting me write this review.

I'd like to thank Bob for being the first person to get me motivated to attempt to understand the mysteries of the universe. This book is riddled with paradox, truths and untruths. I cannot tell you which bits are what, simply because your interpretation is different to mine. I believe this is what Bob was trying to do with this book.

If you are to take this book and analyze it, you will more than likely find it a travesty to literature. Bobs ideas and views have no backing what-so-ever. He references things that a few other people are accredited to; the book doesn't really flow. Or even have an easily visible purpose.

Open your mind. Take this book as it feels. "Nothing in this book is true". Can you imagine yourself living in a multiple dimensional reality? Alien existence? Just because we can't prove these facts as `truth', doesn't mean that they are impossible. I urge you to disprove alien life.

The topics that Bob raises, for me, sparked something inside of me. I feel more alive now than ever. I'm reading so much about everything. I want more. Before reading this book I read pretty much nothing. Read it to be inspired, get yourself contemplating possibilities, if nothing else.

I liked the book, I like all his books. My question is to all those who wrote such hate filled angry reviews. Why did you react so strongly to his ideas? I am a person of science and I liked some of his ideas. I did not notice any response to his ideas other than they hated them. I find that a very knee jerk response without actural data of why they found his ideas so harsh. Maybe some of the ideas stated were very uncomfortable for how they have been living their own lives.. I enjoy his ideas and find they add a new way of my looking at the problems in science with a new eye and open view.. I think this book is helpful to all for many different reasons. If it makes you angry it is obvioulsy the message of its content and the condition of your own spirit and life...

Nothing in This Book is True, but it sure does seem like everything in this book is true. Prior to reading this book, I felt like I had a good grasp on what was happening in this world, what was here in this world, and who all lived in this world. Little did I know, there were hundred of possibilities that in fact be here and happening that I never even imagined.

Nothing is True tells you things how they are. It tells you how, and why we've been deceived by those in charge, what awaits us in the future, how to travel in time, and how to be a better person. It is a surprisingly spiritual book that aims at enlightening as well as awakening all of its readers. From the flower of life to the fourth and ninth dimensions, this book covers anything any wondering mind could want to know.

After the first page, I was hooked and read this book in just 4 hours, burning through the pages. After you read a little, you want to know everything this book has to say. The information here can seem a bit far out at times, but you must realize, the things being discussed are things that are unimaginable in our current state of mind. The people who have discovered these things are enlightened beings who have had profound life changing events that gave them insights into these things.

Before you open the book, be sure you open your mind because you are about to read things that you never thought you would be thinking could be true. And be prepared to have your life changed, for the better.

The only thing wrong with this book is that it takes itself seriously. It could be a hilarious fantasy extravaganza on the order of "The Illuminatus Trilogy" if only it weren't trying to convince us that it's real. It reminds me of the shrink in "The Terminator," who comments that Kyle Reese's psychotic delusion is brilliant because it doesn't require a shred of proof. Same here: The reason our archaeologists can't find evidence of the 500 million years of advanced civilizations on Earth is because they all occurred on a higher dimension. Dolphins and whales are much smarter than we are, but it doesn't seem so because "advanced beings create everything they need internally." Drunvalo Melchizedek, the book's putative hero, is ten billion years old and came from the center of the galaxy to help us, but he doesn't look it because he's "borrowing" the body of an ordinary human. What's more he doesn't even remember any of that because to retain memories of the thirteenth dimension while in the third "would be just too painful." Our sun is currently undergoing a period of intense solar flares that are engulfing the Earth, but we're not aware of it because a group of benevolent aliens from Sirius B constructed a holographic grid around the entire planet so we would think life was going on as normal, until "we could get to where we could handle a wall of flame."
Like I said, this is great stuff. I'm surprised no one's made a movie about this; it would be a blockbuster. The closest I've seen is the movie "Stargate," in which we learn that the ancient Egyptian gods were actually aliens who created humans as a genetically-engineered slave race to work their mines. (That one's in this book too.
