In my role as a coach and therapist, I tell people that all the time, so I found the book extremely validating.
I pull from a lot of different types of resources...this one is at the top of my list. So is Eckhart Tolle, who I think is very similar to this author in one respect...he cuts through the "fat" and speaks clearly to the Truth.
The difference between them is that Eckhart does it from the spiritual side (which is why so many of us have no idea what he is talking about because we are totally disconnected in that respect), where as Jed speaks more from the human point of view.
If you like Tolle, but see yourself as more "human/normal," you will really enjoy this book. If you don't get what Tolle is saying at all, this book will be your bible, you will LOVE IT, at least until you figure out that YOU DON'T NEED IT either.
As much I like this book, the second is a must read. It helps clarify and point to the reality of what most people actually want...which is not actually enlightnement.
Here's what I saw about myself on the mirror:
- Nice to find someone who honestly recognizes that many of the so called spiritual practices don't help you wake up or free yourself but rather make you change seats in the Titanic.With this we might be freeing ourselves from all the unnecessary paraphernalia of the plastic and unreal spirituality.
-Nice to see that someone clever enough to hide an arrogant ego, doesn't even bother to do so, because he doesn't find it necessary, its just a chosen suit.With this we might be freeing our personalities from the rigid prison of a spiritual-ego, the must-do, should-do etc.
-Nice to see someone who claims to be enlightened and yet shows still signs of humanity.With this we might bring the realizations into our bodies allowing them to simply be as they are?
-Nice to read a book where, in spite of my judgments and preconceived ideas, I am still learning out of it.With this I might be freeing myself from the need to prove to myself or others where am I on my path and what is my level of realization and specially what is the level of resistance of my nonexistent ego...
-Above all, I enjoy reading someone who is not afraid of making his audience run away upon touching subjects such as death, suicide, so called negative states or emotions that seem to cause some of the so called new agies, to run away in search of the Ocean of bliss.
Jed Mckenna might or might not be what he claims to be, but his books will for sure help you clarify your own views in order to lift the unnecessary weight you carry and set you onto your most direct path to your "final destination".
I found his books refreshing and helping people return to "themselves" with an invitation to wake up.
At last, these books cannot wake us up, nor do they claim so, but within their pages, we can hear loud enough the Alarm Clock.

I like this author even though there is nothing written about him to know him. I just trust his writing
