Review

"The Hidden Truth" is a collection of thought and philosophy as Wade Wilson ponders the meeting of the scientific, philosophical, and religious and how we piece together our world and try to understand it all.  Highly recommended.  -Midwest Book Review

Note: Mr. Wilson asked me to review his book, and forwarded me a free review copy. This is an unbiased, honest review.

Wilson concisely explains the major tenets, similarities and differences between a number of different metaphysical perspectives, including near death experience, out of body experience, Jane Roberts's Seth books, a Course in Miracles, reincarnation and past life regression therapy, Michael Newton's Life Between Lives therapy, quantum physics, and more.

He also discusses their implications, and a host of other related, intriguing issues. Although I might quibble a bit with his description of himself as a skeptic (he started out as one, when he first set out on his exhaustive research programme, but with a decidedly open mind), he does adopt a refreshingly objective tone and approach throughout, and his sincerity and earnestness shine through. His goal is to educate, and he does an admirable job of distilling a large amount of information into one, highly readable volume. Thoughtful, entertaining, simply and yet well-written, this book will save you a LOT of time and money if you've not yet read the many works covered, provide a good overview.

If you have read the works, you'll enjoy his analysis and discussion of their various implications and areas of agreement and divergence. I particularly appreciated the many case histories and specific examples provided. In any case, you get a lot of bang for your buck- recommended!

It took me a while to get to this book because I had so much editing to do elsewhere. I am sorry now that I hadn't read this sooner!
I was writing on some of these same topics and would have included this insightful book..I have learned a few things from Mr. Wilson. I am always grateful for authors who expand my knowledge in such meaningful ways. Mr. Wilson, like all of us, asks the hard questions about what is life, what is a soul what are Near Death experiences..what does science support in the way of life after life, reincarnation, and God (the Source)? He uses science and physics for answers. I believe the Bible was giving us important clues to the nature of God when stating "God is light." Mr. Wilson breaks down that statement based on modern science, and concludes that God is indeed the supreme light, the source ..as one mystic said...we are not a drop in the ocean, we are the ocean in a drop. Mr. Wilson explains this very well. I highly recommend this book. It will bring much needed answers, peace and understanding to many. Highly recommended. Well done. Kudos to Mr. Wilson!

I really liked this book. Wade has done a very astute job of covering just about everything that could possibly be covered that has to do with the many levels of consciousness. He has definitely done his homework, understands what he is writing about, and makes it more understandable than anything else I have read to date. On top of all this, he is a very fine writer. The subject he is writing about is very difficult to describe in words. Many of the concepts he is covering are beyond the 3rd dimension in which we reside. I feel that is one of the reasons why he leaves it up to each reader to determine which "reality" to follow and how to follow it.

One suggestion I would make would be to mention in the opening notes that it might be best for general audiences to skip to the conclusions at the end of each chapter, and then on to the overall conclusion or summary at the end of the book. I found myself doing this. The overall content of the book was much too scholarly for me. Beyond, this suggestion, I would also mention that most of us are looking for applications; principals that we can apply NOW in these strange times that we are trying to understand and survive in.

This is one of the very best books written on the subject. Seldom does one find an author so dedicated to the study and unbiased analysis of metaphysical and spiritual matters. He is extremely thorough, diligent and intelligent. Though I may not always arrive at the same conclusions as the author, I highly respect the depth and breadth of his analysis and find myself willing to at least entertain his conclusions. He is an author with whom one would love to continue an ongoing dialog long past the last chapter is read.

I applaud Wilson's endeavor to tackle this expansive but highly interesting subject. In fact, this work has saved me a lot of time in my own quest, which has been motivated by a dissatisfaction with mainstream religious doctrine, an interest in near-death experiences (which were originally relayed to me anecdotally by my father, an anesthesiologist), an introduction to past-life regression therapy through a personal friend, and a struggle with the implications of quantum physics and inflationary cosmology in the wake of the recent discovery of the "Higg's particle". In short, these individual pieces of evidence suggested that the nature of the physical universe hides numerous tantalizing "secrets" that may ultimately belie a deeper reality that is founded on hard-boiled rationalism (as opposed to mysticism).

While I cannot, at this stage, accept all of Wilson's arguements without skepticism, I do believe that this text nicely summarizes work from various fields that suggest that a refined understanding of consciousness, advanced physics, anf the nature of the soul may one day be realized. At the very least, the book provides an intuitively satisfying argument for what the true nature of existence might be.

To be sure, this is not intended to be a complete argument, and the author invites the reader to consider the primary literature (which itself is in need of many decades of refinement) as well as numerous counter-arguements (which is routine in philosophical and scientific discourse). Beyond the rhetoric is a tantalizing glimpse of a hidden, but nevertheless genuine reality. Ultimately, this book's importance may not lie in providing answers so much as revealing a thought process that is worthy of continued exploration.
