There are several characteristics that separate Claudia from other business and personal consultants . . . she has an uncanny ability to get to the heart of the problem---quickly. She is painfully honest in her appraisal of your situation but always remains genuinely concerned. --Dr. Victor B. Cline, Psychologist

Your work has inspired many, especially me! You are a heck of a sleuth. Claudia Nelson is the best gumshoe vigilante I have ever met . . . that rare investor who fought back with the same cunning and guile as the con men who victimized her. Others would have walked away---not Nelson. Her 8-year odyssey to bring a master con artist to justice is inspiring and ultimately satisfying. Along the way she corrals fellow fraud victims, the FBI, the Justice Department, and the IRS to see the case through. Nelson weaves religion, psychology, human potential and even quantum mechanics into a narrative that ultimately reveals the art of the con---and why we continue to let ourselves be deceived. --Dirk Smillie, Forbes magazine

Rising from Ashes is Claudia's personal journey that deals with enormous loss (personally and financially) and life changing circumstances. She opens with her experience as a Ponzi scheme victim. She generously shares the details then proves that all is not lost if you use the inner power you are endowed with to muscle through the hardships that can change your life.
She had to discover that power for herself in order to take advantage of every opportunity to right the wrongs done to her. How? She talks about accepting responsibility, courage, coping, determination, patience, and forgiveness. Yes, forgiveness.
For example, responsibility, in its wildest form can be extremely powerful and constructive. It means that you, and no other person, have dominion in your life. In Claudia's case, she took every situation and literally wrestled with them until she was fully satisfied with answers and outcomes.
While many of us can think of one or more scarring life episodes that grew to epic proportions, forgiveness may never enter your minds. This is where Claudia raises the bar and goes to great lengths to help us understand forgiveness and why it is critical for resolution.
The book is based on experience, research and covers a wide range of topics related to power, social change, crime, inequality, and more. Claudia uses reliable evidence to prove her points and has created a comprehensive resource of insight and hope.
Rising from Ashes is highly believable; a book that you will read from cover to cover; and, you will want to read it again.
It shows the rewards for persistence, determination and patience, and how to overcome adversity. We all have hidden powers, this book shows how to bring them out. Once started, I found the book hard to put down. Although I have not known the adversities that Claudia has, it brought many truths to light for me. I highly recommend this book. I give it 5 stars.
