"It is unusual to find so profound a book so lucidly written; its subject is in the air and Peter Russell has magnificently crystalized and developed it. He presents us with a startling, optimistic, and literally revolutionary view of our future. I believe he will open new doors to many peoples perceptions. I read the book almost at a sitting, in great excitement."
Brian Aldiss, U.K.
"Through fifty years in the Christian ministry, and the reading of endless books, I have not read anything so comprehensive, and so lucidly written on the basic origins and meaning of our earthly existence.
It is the sort of book that if I had the money I would pay for copies to be generally distributed . ."

Charles Nuttall, Bahamas
"Very inspiring. Already I have five more copies that I intend to give to some close friends at Christmas and will ask them, if they enjoyed it as much as I did, to do the same. It could become the first ever literary chain letter!"
