My name is Peter Bishop. This is my favorite book. Fauxlivia asked me what my favorite book was, soIi was going to give this to her, but then she left to the parallel universe and she didn't get a chance to see it. Instead, Olivia got it and she might read it. Now, Olivia is mad because I fell in love with her alternate self , not her. My life is a joke. Please don't put me on suicide watch.
This book has given me not only a firm sense of spiritual and personal grounding, but it has really directed me. It kept me from losing faith in myself and others at a time when i could have been the most destructive to my future and that of others. This book gets in your head and cleans things up a bit. Thank you so much Mr. Kopp, you're my angel! :)
I must say I don't see how this wonderful piece of art can be so easily overlooked. Taking cues from greats such as Dante, Kafka, Chaucer, Conrad, de Cervantes, and Hesse, Mr. Kopp sheds his own light on existance in a truly unique and woderful manner. His voice is refreshing and speaks like the guru/piligrim/ genius psychiatrist he is. A stroke of genius (especially the very last very breath-taking stylish paragraph).
This is a book that can be used as an owners manual for living as a member of the universe. It is timeless,provocative, thoughtful and concise.It should be required reading for every person on this and any other planet who consider themselves to be 'human'. One can learn a great deal from this book, however one must be ready to learn what there is to be learned.
Although there were several morsels of knowledge within this book, they were hard to find among the cultural bias. I was disappointed with the way the authors view of the world seemed to slant away from personal accountability and faith.
