"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"Jim Murdoch wrote a story that is interesting and inspiring, and uses the imagery of dragons in quite a fascinating way." Kim Anisi for ReadersFavorite.com
About the Author
From Belfast, Northern Ireland, Jim Murdoch faced a paradigm shift which gave him a new world view. He views everything and everyone as being connected. A path of self development studies followed where he delved into many subjects including metaphysics and, yes, dragons. With his wife, Katharina, he co-authored their self-help story Wings of Change. This got him thinking about writing fiction instead of boring self-help books. Taking inspiration from The Alchemist and The Celestine Prophecies he waited for the inspiration. The book you are holding is the result. Jim lives with his wife in Switzerland.

There are a variety of things going on within this story with four different characters that intermingle with the one main focus which is an amazing book that hold the secrets to finding hidden treasure along with its protector whom is an amazing and magical dragon. Each individual is on pursuit to gain which they seek must solve mysteries, riddles and take a grand adventure to accomplish it all.
I really enjoy how descriptive Jim Murdoch is. Being a HUGE dragon lover myself. I was able to go on an adventurous ride on a magical dragon back and land home safely and with some great memories.
I love how the three stories bound by an ancient mysterious book merge together and support each other. All the stories are equally entertaining and lead to the same crucial conclusion, yet each of them also manages to keep its own unique atmosphere. Sometimes, when a story has multiple protagonists, there’s the danger of one overshading the other, but I felt that this book achieved to keep them all equally likeable.
It’s a fast paced read, each chapter’s ending makes you want to go on, because you look forward to know more, uncover more mysteries and secrets.
What I also loved about the book is that its fairy-tale-like approach can be appreciated both by children and adults.
I recommend this story to anyone who is interested in mythology, particularly dragons and spirit guides, and is courageous and humble enough to confront his own shadow and find the light that resides within.
The writing was a bit slow for me, or maybe just not as detailed as I'm used to, but there was still plenty of detail and plenty of adventure throughout.
The stories of each unfolded and the book became more interesting, to the point of *having* to keep reading, to find out what was going to happen.
I would definitely recommend this book to readers who are into mythology, suspense, and of course dragons and old tales. Very good read!
Review by Kendra @ FaeBooks
From the fiery breath of ancient myth and magick, Jim Murdoch has given us a book of riddles rhymes legends and thrown in a dragon just for good measure. Read carefully as there is great wisdom embedded between the lines.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride on the back of a dragon to see the world from a higher vantage point? From the physical and spiritual plane this book takes the reader higher then we have ever flown before.
Where is the great treasure and what exactly is it that the great dragon guards? You'll have to read Pursuit to find out the secrets of the dragon and its lair. It may even lead you to find your own treasure trove hidden not so very far away from where you are sitting right now at this very moment.
I think there is a little dragon in all of us.
Wendy Mackenzie...Author of The Legend of Terragorn and The Promise
This unique and original tale takes you on a soul searching journey that just leaves you feeling good. Pursuit has great re-readability too, so if you're looking for a different kind of read that will last, don't miss this one!
**I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.**
Do we believe in the magical world of dragons ?
These mystical creatures are told to be the guardian or key to some secrets.
Jim used this thought not only to link the three ages throughout time,
but also to show us great lessons of our own personal journeys in life.
The treasures we seek are always found in our souls,
if we learn how to listen and connect as explained in the book
The dragon in this book guided Einarr, Gaby, and Pat to finding their real treasures.
A wonderful story of enlightening mystical energies !
I liken this into my own adventures and discoveries about my own purpose and gifts from life.
