"I saw the word Solipsist while reading the dictionary in 1993. I was living in NYC at the time and the word defined how the city made me feel. I worked on this book in several cities all over the world until 1996. The writing is obsessive and claustrophobic.

Wow! What else is there to say? This is a good book that puts reality back into our thoughts. What he says is very real and very relatable to each of our lives. Anyone who says that they have never thought about any of the things he writes about, is lying to themselves. It's definately something that I could read many times over and get different things out of it each time.

this book helped me to obtain a higher insight to myself during a period of intense soul-searching.and it taught me the true meaning of independence and what it means to be strong, anyone with a testosterone can be a man but it takes a certain strength to be completely self-reliant a strength that comes with deep self-introspection.
