Editorial Reviews


A dark, disturbing, thought-provoking tale well told, as we would expect from the author of DMT: The Spirit Molecule. The reader is drawn through the story by a compelling need to understand the eponymous Joseph Levy's very peculiar mind! Highly recommended.

---Graham Hancock. Author of Fingerprints of the Gods

Strassman delivers a sardonic and sometimes belly-laugh provoking treatise on God, Life, Love, and Death, in shades of Joseph Heller and John Irving. One could wallow in additional literary allusions, but bottom line, this is a very funny, insightful, and, at times, painful exploration of how humans, at least Joseph Levy, wrestle with all that stuff to find cheating death's not the problem, it's what happens when one tries to cheat life.

As an added bonus, for hypochondriacs and sundry pseudo-hypochondriacs, there's a generous smattering of etiological references, that just might help you find out what-the- hell's wrong with you, along the way. A thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable ride. Climb aboard and hold onto your hat.

---Lewis John Carlino. Screenwriter and director: Resurrecton, The Great Santini, The Fox, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, The Mechanic, Seconds, The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea.

This book has it all. Humor, insight, a poignant glimpse at patient care and the fragility of life, and one man's shattering odyssey through the circus of existence. Buy this book and sail on swirling wisps and eddies of perseverance, hope, causality, and wonderment.

---Dr. Cliff Pickover. Author of The Math Book, The Physics Book, and The Medical Book trilogy

Rick Strassman invites us on a harrowing journey through the ordinary dangers we all face. Our hero, Joseph Levy, retains a clarity, humor and perspective through it all. This is a story that will leave us laughing at the absurdity of life's twists and turns, while giving us a window into the faith that endures through challenge.

---Rabbi Shefa Gold. Author of Are We There Yet? Travel as a Spiritual Practice

A good story told with much interior monologue, rich in issues such as
health, relationships, and anti-semitism. Replete with medical and psychoanalytical overtones, and full of brilliant insights.

---Ralph Abraham, Professor of Mathematics, UC Santa Cruz

A post-modern tale of Job, initiated by a toothache that spirals out of control to psychedelic depths of pain and fear, love and transformation on a pilgrimage to greater insight. Rick Strassman heroically offers this autobiographical novel for all of us who suffer and will die one day. Bravo!

---Alex Grey & Allyson Grey. Artists, co-founders of CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors.

I've never read anything like it.

---Merrilee Challiss. Artist, co-owner of BottleTree Café
