    "I really don't know who Nassim Nicholas is, but I would wholeheartedly recommend The Opposing Shore. It's not for everyone, mind you. I have an immense interest in stories by the sea, and I also have an interest in stories about the aristocracy. This story has both of those features, so I was extremely pleased. I must have read this book 15 years ago now, but it reminds me that I should pick it up again to enjoy the experience all over again."

    "This book is Amazing! There's so much I agree with! Right away, just reading the start of the intro I was startled by the amount of information that I cannot believe that somebody else also knew. I never thought there was a book like this that confirmed so many of my own tidbits of wisdom."

    "This book is a tough one. The message included in the book is one that many people do not understand or do not want to understand. It pretty much sums up the belief of some people and actually makes a little bit of sense. "
