Editorial Reviews

Review

"A peaceful voice for change in a corrupt world."
-- Larry Flynt / Hustler Magazine


"...a brave and compelling call for greater individual consciousness and compassion...an iconoclastic tome of contempt for unjust authoritarianism, with an inspirational silver-lining that gives it all wings."
-- Philip G. Zimbardo, Ph.D., Stanford Professor / NYT Bestselling Author
            Former Pres., American Psychological Assoc.


"For a world consumed by a Culture of Violence, a Voice of Reason comes as a breath of fresh, positive air. The only hope of transforming the world from the tsunami of violence is for each of us to Become the Change We Wish To See in the World. Bryant McGill shows us the way."
-- Dr. Arun M. Gandhi, Grandson of Mahatma Gandhi


"McGill has written a humanist manifesto through the roseate glasses of agape Christianity, Vishnu Sahasranama and Theravada Buddhism. Critical theorists will be challenged by the proposed consonance between Plato, poststructuralism and Lao-Tsu. Purists be damned!"
-- Constance Stadler, Ph.D., Assoc Prof., Political Science, NYU


"...conscious guidance to a positive way out of our global crisis. ...Beyond nationalism, beyond warmongering, beyond cynical elders who use our young people as fodder in wars...and into a real power that comes from truth, awareness, love and compassion."
-- John Breeding, Ph.D., Psychologist, Adjunct Professor of Psychology

This book is for YOU. NO! Not for anyone else, just you. Most of us according to Thoreau 'lead lives of quiet desperation.' We hide our despair with `normal' behavior. The first 65% of this book, if you can take it in, will convict you. However, there is hope.

The lesson to be learned here is to listen to yourself. Where do you get your messages from, your own inner-guide and voice of reason, or Madison Avenue? Is your original voice even yours, or was it branded into your soul through commercials between cartoons? Who are you, really? - Bryant McGill

This is not a book to read for enjoyment. Sorry. If you are even a bit aware, you can see where we are headed and the bad news is no one but you will get YOU through.

You cannot change another person's mind or educate them; this they must do themselves. - Bryant McGill

This book is for YOU. Start now while you can.

Once in a lifetime something comes along that changes the paradigm for a generation. This book is the catalyst for that shift in reality. We desperately need a fresh perspective that can provide us with the tools to recreate and rehabilitate our future. Bryant McGill is a visionary with all the makings of a prophet. This book is a must read for anyone who wants elevate their mind to a higher plane.

There is the old saying not to judge a book by its cover. This is certainly true for myself when it comes to this book.

When I saw this book I was put off by the cover. It just looked like one of those cheesy self help covers that litter bookstores. Yet something compelled me to buy this book despite my aversion to it. I'm glad that I did.

Reading McGill's book, I was reminded of the talks of J. Krishnamurti on the need for the revolution of mind and the state of the world. All too often we get caught up in our little ideas, beliefs, and attitudes of the world which much of the time are not even really our own. They are often accepted and adopted through our environment, culture, nationalism, etc. and often through some authoritative figure or figures without really much question.

McGill delves into how our collective consciousness is playing out in the world in many ways. One doesn't even have to take McGill's word at face value. They only need to really look honestly at what is happening within the world and more importantly, honestly look within themselves to see what McGill is saying it true.

Many of us have become a society of endless consumerism where more is not enough. Materialism is reigned as god and it doesn't matter what this voracious consumerism and predatory capitalism is doing to others in the world or the world itself, as long as we get the newest "this" or the best "that". Just keep the consequences out of sight, out of mind.

But somewhere within us there is what Thoreau called living a life of quiet desperation. I believe we know deep down inside that material wealth won't save us. We know that what we're doing to the world is killing it.

Since I am almost 75 and have entered into those last few years in this world, I can truly say that Bryant McGill has called attention to the many institutions that most of us have ascribed to over our lifetimes. I have always considered myself to be one of the fortunate individuals and considered that life has been good for me. However, I had not thought how these institutions had affected humanity in general. Bryant is right, we all live by the standards that are expected for us in each community, whether it is government, religion, military or business & industry. The difficulty in each of those societies is how that society looks upon each individual within the specific community. If one is considered subordinate in some way, that community will deem those individuals not as worthy and will classify that person, or the same type of individuals, into a lesser category. As much as we do not want to admit it, the class society continues.

The history of humanity has been long and hard. There have been centuries of all forms of abuse, such as war, slavery and tyranny. Although those forms of life are terrible for each human being at the time, there have been periodic efforts by those seeking freedom and their cause eventually rewarded. No doubt, the "Civil Rights Movement" was one of those steps forward for humanity. But it will continue to take centuries for the world to be at peace.

Bryant outlines the festering sores in the world's communities. He has called attention to these issues with the hope that each of us will help make the changes through personal action and help to accomplish a better society in the years ahead.
