WHAT THE READERS ARE SAYING!
NOTE: I printed 100 "Galley" copies of the book free last fall and gave them away to people I had met along the way and asked them to circulate copies of the book to people they thought would be interested. These are just a few of the comments that I received back.

The Assumptions is so well written and entertaining. I love how you tie everyday life and circumstances into the assumptions. I related to almost every story but you made me see things in ways I never considered before. It is an entertaining eye opener. I couldn’t put it down and read it in one day. Wow! Your views and insights are so enlightening. I am recommending it to everyone I meet.
Ankara, Turkey -Jamal Ganim
I am a devout Muslim, 35 years old. I received a copy of your book from Aiza in NY. I have never studied any other religions since I know Islam is the one true religion of Allah. I had to read some of the pages two or three times to make sure of how wrong I was about some serious beliefs I had. I will never see things the same again. I now realize how arrogant I have been about my beliefs and should offer many people an apology. This should be read by every Muslim on the earth. Thanks for writing such enlightening work.
Oslo, Norway -Egil Thweatt
Thank you for writing such a marvelous book. I have read many books in my long lifetime and this one has changed my views on many subjects. I found myself rediscovering who I am. I never realize how powerful I am. I have now given it to my grandson to read. I hope you will write another book to follow this one. I am now a big fan.
Baltimore, MD, USA -Thomas C.
What an interesting book. At first I was astounded with the understanding of how powerful human beings actually are. I then got offended at the chapters challenging my religion, but I kept reading. In the end I was overwhelmed. This changed my life. I was an angry and unhappy person. I will never be that again. I never knew science could open my eyes so wide to me and what I believe.
Toronto, Canada -Liza Bentfield
My friend Anna gave me your book as a gift. Frankly, I didn’t know why she was giving it to me since I am neither spiritual nor religious. She just told me I had to read it. Now I know why! I am 41 years old and I had an abortion when I was 19. I have suffered all my life with great remorse for what I did. I had nightmares about it and not even medication has relieved the pain. Now I see it with open eyes and the pain is gone. I am a peace about it for the first time in my life. I can’t thank you enough. I just never thought about it in the way you explained. I am eternally grateful!
San Francisco, Ca, USA -Erin T.
Your friend Emily gave me her "Galley" copy to read a few days ago. I don't have much time for reading but sure glad I took the time. Your views are right on the money! I have always wanted to help change the world but never knew how I could do anything since I am just one small person. Now I realize how powerful I really am and even more so, how judgmental I have been toward others faiths. I have been a Buddhist since I was 21 (now 45) and I have been so harsh in my judgment of people. Thanks for opening my eyes. I now understand.

My daughter's best friend loaned me her galley copy of your book to read. I am retired from politics now but still very active in many projects. I have lived a clean Christian life and for the past 10 years have been passionate about converting people to Christianity –or as you say “to see things from my side of the chair.” Your book is astounding and the impact is far-reaching. I should have been using my energies more wisely. Honestly, I was embarrassed at myself for how arrogant and judgmental I have been. Your thoughts in the last chapter regarding the United States “autopsy” were perfect!! I couldn’t agree more. We must make a change. Thanks for your inspiring insights!!

I am a 23 year old gay man and have been gay all my life. I have been ridiculed and ostracized by people every since I was a kid. I never knew what to say to people when they were so mean to me. I hope every heterosexual on earth reads your book. I have told your stories to many of my enemies and family and every one of them had to stop dead in their tracts! The looks on their faces were priceless. Finally, they understood. It is almost like having a new life. Thank you for giving the world a new view of human beings regardless of their orientation.
Columbia, SC, USA -Sally K.
I have never believed in God and have been against all religions since I was a child. I am 21 years old. But I always felt there was more to life than just this once existence. After I read your book I had to reconsider things. Nobody has ever described things the way you did. I am soooo powerful and I am starting to use my power every day and now my entire attitude and my life has changed. I just never knew. Thank you sooo very much!
