      Thank you Michael. I strongly recommend it. The review really just skims the surface of what is a very deep, thoughtful and comprehensive book. It is a challenging but very satisfying read.

      I highly recommend that you do, Michael. At present it is not easy to obtain a copy but there is hope that a wider distribution will become available in due course. In the meantime you can get a taster here at https://anarchicsanctuary.com/home/e...ings-in-haiku/.
      There is also much else to enjoy on the site.

    It was really a privilege to work on editing this book and seeing it take shape, Richard’s thoughts are expansive and challenging and it is a rare experience to bear witness to genius at work. I can say it has had an impact on my life and thought and that is rare enough in terms of the number of books that have had such a transformative effect.

    expect to be challenged, expect to grow proportionally to the effort you put into it. I will say, it is intellectually challenging, but also mind and soul expanding.

      I echo your comments, Clayton. For a number of months during its gestation, I felt as if I was living and breathing Richard's process.
