Editorial Reviews

Review

“Eldon’s provocative voice of wisdom and compassion places his readers right on the dot about the meaning of their individual existence. What Does That Mean? reveals how the paradoxes we face in everyday life form the rich material that invites us to confidently enter the mystery and relish it. Read, practice, and celebrate!”

Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation—Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential


What Does That Mean? guides you to ask deeply probing questions that often go ignored but must be examined if you are ever to live your best life possible. Highly recommended."

Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Happy for No Reason and Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul


“I love this book! There is something about the energetics of Eldon’s languaging that breaks open my heart. It’s very vulnerable, but if one possesses the courage to fully let it in and respond to it, there is great power involved.”
Anita Rehker



What Does That Mean? goes far beyond ‘exploring mind, meaning, and mysteries’! It’s a deeply satisfying and divinely inspired book that will not only explain so many uncertainties; it will also heal many a tattered soul. Both scientific and spiritual, strong and soft, spellbinding and soothing . . . this is a must-read!

Crystal Andrus, author of Simply . . . Woman! and Transcendent Beauty



“I’ve found all of Eldon Taylor’s books fascinating, but What Does That Mean? is his magnum opus, offering a rare look at how inner guidance plays out in real life.”

Caroline Sutherland, author of The Body Knows . . . How to Stay Young



What Does That Mean? is engaging, thought provoking, and quite simply a great read!”

Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of The Secret Pleasures of Menopause and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom



“Eldon Taylor weaves together spiritual inquiry, self-disclosure, and masterful storytelling to make this insightful book an easy read that’s accessible for everyone. Highly recommended.”

Chuck Hillig, author of Enlightenment for Beginners and Looking for God



“Eldon Taylor is one of the world’s most brilliant modern-day philosophers. What Does That Mean? is a thought-provoking, engaging read that will capture your attention and have you contemplating every aspect of life itself.”

Peggy McColl, the New York Times best-selling author of Your Destiny Switch

More About the Author

Eldon Taylor is an award winning, New York Times best selling author of over 300 books, and audio and video programs. He is the inventor of the patented InnerTalk technology and the founder and President of Progressive Awareness Research. He has been called a "master of the mind" and has appeared as an expert witness on both hypnosis and subliminal communication.

Eldon's Father was in law enforcement for most of his life and for many years Eldon himself was a practicing criminalist conducting investigations and lie detection examinations. His hobby for over 30 years has been horses and at one time he owned a large all-breed stallion station and racing stable. His down to earth common-sense pragmatism combined with his intellectual interests have led some to identify him as the "blue-collar progressive traditionalist." Now if that isn't ever an oxymoronic description--but then perhaps it is not after all.

Eldon is listed in more than a dozen Who's Who publications including Who's Who In Intellectuals and Who's Who In Science and Engineering. He is a Fellow in the American Psychotherapy Association and an internationally sought after speaker. His books and audio/video materials have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have sold millions worldwide.

Eldon is the host of the popular radio show, Provocative Enlightenment. He has interviewed some of the most interesting people on the planet including the likes of JZ Knight (Ramtha), George Noory, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Lorna Byrne, Neale Donald Walsch, Dr. Jose Arguelles, William Paul Young, Lynne McTaggart, Don Miguel Ruiz, Debbie Ford, Nick Begich, Harv Eker, Gregg Braden, David Hawkins, James Twyman, Hossca Harrison, and Glynis McCants just to name a few. His shows are both provocative and always fresh by way of both the perspective and the exchange.

Format: Hardcover
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? - A must read for any thinking person, questions if reality is only relative. According to Dr. Eldon Taylor's most thought provoking work to date, our perception of reality is ever in flux and is always relative to our conditioning, experiences, belief systems, our willingness to open our hearts and minds to new paradigms, and whether or not we live in fear or love. This autobiographical tale reveals how one of the most brilliant minds in America came to question reality and the value and purpose of our multilevel perceptions. Each new reality initiates a journey into a new trajectory of soul expansion, and more importantly brings one to the comprehension that we create our own realities.

I was disappointed in this book. It's all over the place. Wise and insightful one moment, missing the point the next moment. (Example: Arguing that Gandhi's approach doesn't apply to today's terrorists because they don't possess the same sensibilities as the British did misses the larger point about Gandhi's genius. Gandhi was so successful because he read his opposition so well and continually adapted his approach to their mindset and tactics. He wouldn't have approached today's terrorist the same way he approached the British. His approach to the British was taylor-made for who there were and what they valued.)

The author has had some extraordinary experiences, and I give him credit for trying to figure out what they mean, but perhaps the meaning would be more easily found by looking at the bigger patterns instead of trying to examine each event separately, in its own detail. And I would advise him to remember to keep things in context. Just because you have a hammer doesn't make everything a nail; just because you have a wonderous and wonderful experience doesn't mean that the same thing will be as helpful in another circumstance.

This author's frustration at searching for meaning is evident, but not really helpful for readers. I would advise readers to steer clear of this book unless they are simply seeking a companion as they slog through their own confusion.

I've been a marriage and family therapist for thirty plus years, and this book has dramatically changed the way I work with clients.

When I read the statement that "The greatest guru can only ask the questions that will lead us inward to search for meaning", I realized that I needed to begin with the questions about what it might mean that they are where they are, and why they are doing what they are doing. It moves us to a much higher logical level immediately. Heart-felt solutions and new meanings and understandings of life experiences emerge quickly for all of us.

Clients take the question with them and stay at the higher level of open-ended questioning and delighted observation. It's like the "spiritual" scientific method.

Dr. Taylor allows us to walk with him through his own fascinating life of intelligent searching, observation and testing of beliefs and hypotheses. His own life experiences sound amazing, until you begin thinking of all of your own that are just as amazing and unexplainable.

The book has led me to ask people I meet (like the "complainer" in the next seat on the airplane), if they have ever had an experience that doesn't seem possible in the light of current scientific knowledge. It's fun, try it! Almost everyone has, and it leads to deeper and more interesting conversations about meaning.

Even my "digital native" nephews and nieces look me up for non-digital conversations at family gatherings!
What does that mean?!

The Complete Dream Book, 2nd edition: Discover What Your Dreams Reveal about You and Your Life

This enjoyable book from master storyteller Eldon Taylor is thought provoking and fun at the same time. It takes a truly wise person to have such a light, engaging touch while inviting you into questioning the limits of reality. Taylor recalls mysterious incidents in his life, including once when his life was saved inexplicably, as if he were somehow lifted out of the scene of an accident. His memories are so fascinating and well told, that they stand alone as fabulous stories, yet each one begs the question of taking another look at what we define as "real" and possible.

The chapters and essays are short and pithy, with such titles as: Airy Fairies, Whiny Wimps and Scandalous Shamans. His humor makes everything easy to take, and his style allows you to make up your own mind about miracles, coincidences, mysteries and most important of all: meaning. His message seems to be to trust yourself and to keep asking intelligent, open minded questions. Perhaps that is one of the most important things any of us can do.

While reading this book, I realized how much religious guilt I had been carrying around since childhood. Although I had been denying it for most of my life, I suddenly understood that I had literally and finally gotten rid of it! It was like taking a deep breath after being suffocated for years.

Thank you, Mr. Taylor, for writing this book and for your remarkable insight. I normally share my books with others but instead, I'll buy my friends their own copy. This is something I will be reading over and over again!
