Editorial Reviews

Amy Lignor
***** 5 Star, Highly Recommended

This is a book that really gets to the heart of the values and beliefs taught since, the beginning of time...deeply intellectual

There are many different theories discussed in this novel that readers
will be able to relate to in one way or another. Zor is an interesting character and the author offers up some extremely good lines that really strike a chord, such as, when you stop chasing your dreams all that’s left are nightmares.
Gary Sorkin
Behind the gilded hue cover photo displaying a drink tumbler along with the humble initials of the author J.B. printed in the corner, Zor: Philosophy, Spirituality, and Science is an enigma for the reader as to its content. For those of you which at times in your past became less than sober one way or another, and contemplated the meaning of life, God, the energy of the universe, or the complexity of relationships, Zor is the answer you've been seeking...someone I guarantee, you'll never forget.
Julie Anne Dawson
Its problems are its strengths!
On the surface, Zor does everything wrong. The plot is relatively thin. Character development is sparse. Descriptive text is lacking. Much of the story is passive. And yet the very issues that casual readers would consider "problems" on the surface level are what make the book such a fascinating read. The fact is that Zor is less a novel than it is an opportunity to eavesdrop in on a debate as old as humanity. He challenges our world view!
June Maffin
This story powerfully addresses the synergistic connection between spirituality, science and philosophy (entanglement) in a compelling and easy-to-understand way.It's seldom that I find a book that resonates so deeply with every fibre of my being in so many ways, but this is such a book. I didn't want it to end. I read it slowly, savouring each page, enjoying the plot and the character of Zor who challenges the reader to think - really think about love, wholeness, peace - life.
Citizen John
To me this book serves as Volume II of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Discoveries in quantum physics call for this book. Zor is a font of knowledge...in relatively few pages, Zor provides major paradigm shifts by incorporating recent scientific development into spectacular world views and purposes for life. Zor is the kind of book that leads one to read other books. This makes Zor an important book.

Meet the Author

I was fortunate to attend the cultural melting pot of Boston University in the early 70's. As senior class president I graduated with both a major in Business Administration and a concentration in Philosophy/Religious Studies.

Since graduation I have spent 30 years trying to balance compassion and morality with corporate success and capitalism; finally succeeding with the publication of my new book, "Zor".

"Zor" explores the relationship between philosophy, spirituality, and science by asking one simple question; where do you turn when life's core beliefs become suspect?

That is the dilemma confronting Jonathan Brewster, a middle aged money manager from Boston, whose "chance" meeting with a Haitian dwarf named Zor, spirals out of control. Forced to defend his life in a series of intense debates concerning negative ch'i, emotional addictions, neuron networks, placebos, vipassana meditation, the collective unconscious, laws of attraction, sub-atomic entanglement, Nietzche, metta, God, and happiness; John is reluctantly drawn to a new reality.

Rising above his crisis of conscience he restructures his life for the greater good, only to be challenged by the ultimate betrayal.

Currently living seaside, in a picturesque New England community with my wife and son, I am convinced the movement that captured a nation in the late 60's is still very much alive. "What's so wrong with peace, love, and understanding?"
