Publisher's Summary

The Book of Undoing encourages immediate recognition of our shared true nature. It is an experiential journey, wherein the listener follows a mock client's Direct Pointing session with the author.

These sessions have helped people around the world come to Nondual realization. It's suggested that the listener actively participate in the question and answer sessions which form the bulk of the book.

Fred extends the invitation for you to awaken right here, right now. It's here or nowhere. It's now or never.

5 stars for Fred Davis and his Book of Undoing.

Any additional comments?

Who’d a thunk it, but turns out . . . there’s nothing mystical or foreign to Awakening after all. Fred Davis simply asks a series of questions, to his stand-in client “Brook,” (she’s standing in for us, by the way) and before you know it . . . you’ll find that you suddenly get it. As in: “IT.” Now I’m not saying that I’m all the way where I want to be, but after decades of reading philosophy, religion and metaphysical books . . . I can say that I’m a whole lot closer to home than I ever have been. Get the book. You don’t even need an open mind—just open ears.

Fabulous!

Any additional comments?

Well, I love to read, so I hesitated buying this book (which I've read twice) on audio, but considering it's the Fred Davis, my new favorite author, who wrote this book and set up the audio, I went for it. I listened to about 2 minutes of the sample, turned it off and bot it with 1-click. I already like it better than the paperback version and find it much more experiential. I can't wait to listen to it all. Thanx, Fred!

Good Stuff

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Having Brook answer the questions, for me, was very distracting. In this case the print version is better.

Would you be willing to try another book from Fred Davis? Why or why not?

Maybe. After watching a few of his youtube videos I feel like his message has no potency, at least via poor quality video it doesn't.

Which scene was your favorite?

I resonated with identifying myself in the head region of the body, and then upon further contemplation, I too realized that I am nothing but a thought. That is a nice breakthrough.

Do you think The Book of Undoing: Direct Pointing to Nondual Awareness needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Well, I didn't like the format, so I'd say no.

Any additional comments?

The information is refreshing. Just because I didn't resonate with the format doesn't mean there wasn't value for me. If you're a seeker, this might help you.

Wonderful

Just a wonderful little book and very well read. I already planning on listening multiple times.
I really was able to allow myself to experience the simple exersizes and get a glimpse of no dual conscienceless. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the commentary from "Brook" the client, manly because I have thought the same things.
It's really amazing and such a radical shift from the world of form. Yet I feel as a result of listening, I was able to see thru the clouds. Baby steps, baby steps.

Surprisingly clear and articulate pointing.

So, if you know Fred Davis from his YouTube videos, you might expect this (like I did) to be a little unsophisticated and down-home for your taste. It is neither.

I've now listened twice and both times I found myself clear as a bell later that day. During the listen not so much but later Pop! There I'm not!

I was struck immediately by how articulate the prose is. It isn't pretentious or formidable it's just very concise and clear. His pointing is a little different from what I have experienced before. He sorta argues (not argumentative but intellectually) you out of your belief in Self. He shows you that it makes no sense.

If I read the above I might think "Yeah, well that's not how it works!". But, it is just a different way. It does work, though I'm sure not every time. And I'm sure some people will not have a taste for it. But I think more will write it off unduely.

I recommend it highly. It worked on me twice already and I will probably listen frequently as long as it keeps working.

I know this language is dualistic but the glimpses it induced in me were not and we're among some of the deeper experiences I have had.

Simple, but effective.

Very delicate narration of the author experience with enlightenment. Straight to the point, with dialogues.

amazing clarifying

it's amazing how easy the author puts and explains supposedly complex subjects and makes you see the truth. this is a guided and easy to do direct inquiry without leaving you wondering where/how you have to search. in the end the answer is surprisingly obvious and not expected

Excellent

A lovely, simple and kind guide to self inquiry. I watch Fred on YouTube and he is a wonderful, quirky 'unit', he always makes me smile! So after reading three million books on non-duality and finally grasping it 'intellectually, I have been spending more time in self inquiry and wanted to try Fred's pointers.

It was lovely to listen to this simple dialogue and experiment alongside, looking beyond the intellect into direct experiencing. It has been really helpful for me to spend more time in the sense of being, with the help of these pointers. As a result, alongside other teachings and inquiries, my sense of being is gradually expanding by itself.

A short but powerful little book, if you are truly ready to stop feeding the intellect and to start experiencing what is :)

A clear message

I liked the overall format and topics described here. The conversational tone was practical and easily understood. Although some of the student teacher interaction was a little predictable, nonetheless it was useful. I felt the author was speaking from experience and did a good job at pointing out things in a good way, especially for those starting on the Nondual teachings. The last chapter or so was excellent.
