I received Waiting For Autumn as a gift a couple of weeks ago. Something drew me to read it ahead of many other books and projects. I was not disappointed. Scott Blum has painted a wonderful picture of his journey and events that led to his accelerated connection to Spirit. His story is well worth reading, as there are several twists to it that will come as a surprise.
Seldom have we had anyone write a diary of sorts to explain what they went through. Scott's thoughts and experiences may be hard for some people to understand, but he is bold and clear in words. For me, it was a great way to have a further understanding of the link that we have between the physical world and the beauty and availability of the world of God and Spirit. If you truly understand what he went through, then you will also not be able to look at some of the nuances in life the same way.

Scott Blum has done it again! After reading Summer Path, which just happened to have been a free download to my computer, I had to purchase his next book Waiting for Autumn. This was the first book that I pre-ordered before it even hit the bookstore shelves. I waited for more than a month for it's release and must say that when it arrived I wasn't disappointed!

The book is one that is a page turner and can easily be read in an afternoon. The chapters are short but filled with action and emotion and the ending of the book comes with a bit of a surprise. I'd love to elaborate on the story but for fear of revealing too much to the reader, I won't. I will say that it definitely is NOT a disappointment and look forward to Scott's next book!

Waiting for Autumn by DailyOM co-founder Scott Blum, is an uplifting story about the power of healing that is interwoven with Scott's personal experiences. This is a story that comes from the heart. This book tells of a seeker who meets a mysterious cardboard-sign-toting homeless man named Robert who has a sleepy puppy at his side and a skill for changing lives. Sparked by Robert's unconventional wisdom, Scott is thrust into a spiritual adventure where he attempts to heal his past while confronting the spirit of his fiancee. Lovely and inspiring.

Not sure what to say, because I applaud anyone who has the courage and tenacity to go out there and write a book that gets published so I don't want to hurt any feelings or squash Scott Blum's creative confidence. However, this being a forum for reviews, I have to give my honest reaction. This book was a huge let down. I was so excited by the promotion for this that I instantly bought two: one for me, one for my mother. We set out to read simulatneously and discuss later. Well, we've both read it...but literally have had nothing to discuss. It is written so simplistically as to be almost juvenile in nature. I kept waiting for the meat of it to begin - for the real heart of it to open up and make sense. It dabbled in a bunch of catch-phrasey spiritual healing modalities, most of which came across sounding like a kid in a candy store naming some of the cool stuff he's tried. So much of it seemed not-quite-believable or not-quite-real, as there is a lot of back and forth between present-moment and far-out spacey perceptive shifts that he either experienced or maybe thought would be neat to write about for entertainment purposes? Not sure, but for me it lacked depth and meaning. The only thing that kept me reading was the wish that it would get better. It didn't, and then the trite ending only added to my frustration. The best thing about this book is that it made me realize that really anyone can write a book and get it published if they want to, and so it has inspired me to dream up the book I'll be writing... (Then Scott will have a chance to review it here!)

I have to admit that I have ambivalent feelings towards this book. I started reading it all excited and got really into it, but all of a sudden I just couldn't go on. I lost interest. And it actually took me a couple of months to pick the book again.

What I like of the book is the different stages of the author's personal spiritual quest. Which started involuntarely and ended with full consciousness of what he was doing and going through. I don't have a hard time believing that he saw all those things in the spiritual world, and not because it isn't true, but because many people make it seem so easy to do, and it's actually quite hard to get into that world. You really have to have worked in your spiritual growth to get a grasp of all that there is to see and experience there. But still, I do understand all the processes he went through and I think that they are always different for everyone. And some people do come into your life exactly to motivate this kind of quest.

What I didn't like about the book is that although he explains his process he really doesn't go much into the emotional consequences of it. He talks about the physical experiences but how it really impacted his emotional life is much of a mistery. If someone is really able to go beyond and enter the spirit world and see all that he saw there has to be some change in the emotional and spiritual body, not just the mental and physical ones.

Overall it's an ok book. I'm not sure if I would read something else written by him. Although I did have have high hopes for this book when I got it, maybe it's just me, or maybe I was expecting much more or something else entirely. I guess it all comes to each readers taste.
