    "A very moving book dealing with a difficult and often emotional subject. However instead of feeling sad or depressed after having read it, I felt uplifted and quite hopeful. The author has a real gift for turning life's hard lessons into positive opportunities, but without denying the reality of pain or straying too much in the territory of positive thinking. A great read and wonderfully written."

    "What is Cosmic Ordering? Well, I was stuck with nothing better to do during a power outage, and my new age girlfriend had this book. She read it to me, and I still don't know. It seems to be something involving dreams, but the author's so out there I doubt even he knows either. What I can say is it took way more pages to say than I think it possibly deserved, and I'm no longer dating that woman. I might keep the copy she left though, because anyone else who sees it and says she read it is someone I want to steer clear of."
