Overview

In the tradition of The Alchemist, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, and The Celestine Prophecy, this enchanting semiautobiographical parable follows the inquisitive Scott as he finds himself in a parking lot where he meets a cardboard-sign-toting homeless man named Robert with a penchant for changing lives. With Robert and the sleepy black lab Puppy Don at his side, Scott embarks on a spiritual awakening and attempts to heal his past while confronting the spirit of his dead fiancée, learning the power of nature, exploring the spirit plane, and discovering the true nature of the universe. On this unique journey of self-discovery, various healing and spiritual modalities are revealed, including shamanic soul retrieval, ancestral healing, harnessing of lunar energy, conscious cooking, kirtan, manifesting, and lightworking. This easy-to-read book is a charming and affecting story of one humble soul's profound awakening on the path to facing an extraordinary dilemma between his spiritual calling and earthly life purpose.

This book was a very easy and fast read. Over before I was ready to end the book. I received an email from my best friend to download the first 3 chapters FREE. It took me a couple to days to do just that....but let me tell you... I was hooked on the first page. I made tracks to B&N, to get my copy. They only had 3 on the shelf. I purchased one and in a matter of days, I returned and purchased the other two. If I could afford more, I would do just that. Gifts for family and friends (less my daughter and best friend). I am on my spiritual journey and joined Scott on his, if only by reading his account. Robert, I recognized on Scott's first encounter. I know I will be re-reading this over and over. I am anxious to get his other book Summer's Path, to be released in April 2010. I am very blessed, have been all my life. I would like to have a personal encounter with "Robert" of my own, but until then, Waiting for Autumn, will have to do. If you have not read this book, do yourself a favor and read it....do your family and friends a favor and give them a copy.

This book was the October book club selection for our library. I think that it was a bunch of new age type crap. I didn't go to the club meeting because I didn't even want to discuss it.

Finally a fresh approach to this topic in an entertaining format. Even if you don't believe in the premise, it will give you pause to reflect. You must read the first in the set to understand this second one. "I want an orange. What do you want?"

I couldn't put this book down. It had me from word one. I can't wait for Scott's next book. This book will have a profound effect in your life.

I loved it! I encourage anyone who has interest in the "journey of life" to read this. Well written and engaging story. I also recommend "Daily Om" written by his wife Madisyn Taylor.
