Say something about yourself!
If I do, I will read it. This book is a great case for a professional narrator.
As an intellectual person who appreciates solid research, logic, and critical thought, I expect every author and researcher who presents a theory or hypothesis to do his/her reader the honor of following the purposeful and thorough steps of investigation and research.
While I do appreciate Wilcock's enthusiasm on this subject (one, by the way, of which I personally don't need convincing due to experience and belief), that same enthusiasm seems to have precluded his need for proof in the old "if X then Y" formula. Too often he presents a collection of examples or instances and then makes the claim that the point he wants to make is obviously true. Obviously? Perhaps to Wilcock. And perhaps to those of us who believe. But unfortunately, even those of us who do believe can identify presumptive conclusion and weak presentation when we hear (or read) it.
I wanted more investigation and more research, and less recitation of others' findings. In this way, I wanted more Wilcock.
I wanted less exclamation of Wilcock's own amazement and shock. I want to be left to have my own feelings of amazement and shock when consuming research and hypothesis. In this way, I wanted less Wilcock.
There are very few authors who can narrate their work well and professionally. To write and to perform are two very separate talents, and the remarkable combination is rare. (Graham Hancock is one author within this genre that I consider a select exception.) Wilcock, unfortunately, is very hard to listen to. His presentation is a combination of excited and plaintive, with emphasis and inflection that, I'm sorry to say, I found myself comparing to the whine of my six-year-old daughter when she's too tired and too hungry.
I really wanted to listen. And I did. But I could only do it in very small doses. A 19-hour audio book taken in medicine drops of 5 minutes at a time (sometimes at increased audio speed to help me get through more faster before I had to stop listening) makes for a tedious commitment. Getting through this took me a very, very long time. I found myself seeking other books on similar subjects that were better written and better narrated just to help me get through this one.
I love that Wilcock has pursued this subject. I appreciate that he has put himself out there and that he is opening the minds of many through his work. I believe he is saying something that is very worthy. He is on to something that more of us should be.
I may choose to read him again. Mind you, that's read, not listen. I will opt for print. Because skimming and silence are beautiful things.
The book starts off well. Lots of interesting examples that suggest some kind of global mind connection. Then he gets stuck in the weeds for hours talking about the significance of ancient symbols and Egyptian inches. This seems largely irrelevant to me. While he's going on and on about the pyramids he claimed that some of the stones used in the construction weighed over 70 tonnes and that this is more than can be lifted by any modern crane. This is so obviously false it completely defeated my suspension of disbelief. If he's willing to make such a dumb false statement it discredits the whole book. I struggled on for another 10 minutes and then gave up.
Read Magicians of the Gods by Graham Hancock. If you already have then this is a waste of time for you.
To illustrate how good this book was I'm going right back at the beginning to listen to it again. This is cutting edge material that ushers in a new age.
I look at things from a scientific angle - and this book is quite interesting and dives deeply into many scientific phenomenon. This book covers many topics and even though a few were not exactly super alluring, I certainly recommend this read. Those listening should certainly make up their own mind on the author leading them in any particular direction - however the facts were unlike anything I have heard before, and I really enjoyed this book.
I am single, retired and enjoy gardening. I don't have the discipline to sit and read a book. Audio books are such a blessing to me.
No. But that is because I don't have any friends that would be interested in this subject matter. The subject matter is very mind expanding.
The Seth Materials.
It made me think. I had to play each section over and over for my mind to wrap around what he was talking about.
David Wilcock is a very brilliant scientific thinker. He is doing the work of Edgar Casey, if Edgar Casey were still living today.
This is a book I will listen to over and over again. I don't think anyone can grasp the information that David is conveying in one read.
I would say that this book should be bought in Kindle form as well.
there's tons of actual science presented to back up the claims and so far I haven't found much to counter the validity of the claim from mainstream scientists with as much evidence as is presented at this point.
it's an interesting concept, thing I'm not sure about some of the theory even if only taken athalf there is lots to make you think about what we really know and what we think we know
maybe but if he repeats the subject matters title as much as he does in this no I won't.
to a point. once something catches my attention I tend to dig in until I have to do something else
Say something about yourself!
fascinating, informative, doubt
Reveling lies concealment and the death of so many brilliant people.
No, but would love to.
Yes! very extreme. left me questioning so many things.
N/A, haven't seen the print version
N/A, no 'characters' just real people referenced. Dr Michael Newton, psychiatrist
I never read the print version. But I tell you this. This is a must have when it comes to a Audible book.
When I found out that all that I have believed in was true.
He was a great reader of the book.
I would have but its a long book.
If you want to find out more about "us" then this is a great place to start. Its made me more knowledgeable about life and who we are.
