Bob Frissell is merely repeating what's all ready been said in Drunvalo Melchizedek's fascinating Flower of Life books. Why even bother writing this one unless it is to capitalize on the original? The diagrams and examples in "Nothing in This Book is True, But it's Exactly How Things Are," are even taken from Melchizedek's. How disappointing this was to me. This is like the condensed, extremely condensed, version of a superior work (confounding as it is!). In any case, there's lots of talk about secret societies, crop circles, aliens, ascended masters, the pyramids, Mars, etc., etc., etc. You can find information on this stuff in many, many other books as well. I find it intriguing that every book I read about these matters offers a different explanation. It appears that there are many different versions of "how things are" out there and I certainly cannot buy what the title of this book indicates; that the information given here is, in fact, "HOW THINGS ARE." Read this, certainly, for a bit of mind expansion or read it for a bit of fun (however, the sacred geometry does go a bit over the edge, as in The Flower of Life books). But don't take it too seriously. There are lots of other explanations as to who we are, why we're here, where we came from, where we are going, and who is walking among us. Who's right? Who's not right? Who is close to being right? It's all so complicated, isn't it? Yep.

By Gideon
This book change my life ....for about three months. Who knows, perhaps I am still feeling the reprecussions. I read it when I was desperately seeking some understanding, when I needed something to believe in, something positive, something pure. It completely blew my mind and I tried to get everyone I knew to read it. few did, and of those only a couple really gained anything from it. It has a very positive message that can be summed up with one word "LOVE' which is all and everything.

now that the smoke has cleared I don't know what to think. it is a very good book, it serves as an excellent introduction to sacred geometry, consipiracy theory etc. But.... upon researching it in some detail by consulting certain sources cited in the book, a lot of facts are inconsistent and erroneous. But like Frissel says, nothing in this book is true.

Oh, one last word of warning. New Agers think they have open minds and reject all criticism lobbed at them as "the prodcut of closed minds subjected to brainwashing" etc. What they fail to realize is that for the most part, a lot of their beliefs are founded on the same blind faith as the islamic fundamentalist, the christian zealot etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars not mush January 18, 2000
i agree with a reader from minnesota ("new age mush") when he points out the 2 main faults of this book. the author doesn't back up what he says... where does he get his information? and he uses terminology without explaining it, so it's easy to become lost if you're not already well- schooled in new age ideas. however, i am a new age freak. some might call me gullible, but i can't believe all these stories can be out there, without there being something to them. the author does a great job of explaining (to my satisfaction) how pole shifts, consciousness,electromagnetics, alien abductions, crop circles, area 51, roswell, etc. are all tied together. maybe his explanations are inadequate from a reference standpoint, but it's possible that he did some investigation and just figured this stuff out in the only way that makes sense, which makes the title of the book all the more appropriate. read it and listen to your instincts. there's more to life than what is right in front of us.
