“Mark Gober’s first book, An End to Upside Down Thinking, provided clear presentation of the emerging scientific revolution surrounding the mind-brain connection and its world-changing implications for more fully understanding reality. In this absolutely essential sequel, he offers extraordinarily rich insights and practical applications stemming from these advanced ideas supported by deep conceptual background. This remarkable series energizes a profound revolution in how we can live more authentic and purposeful lives, enriching our individual and collective experience beyond imagination. Highly recommended!” —Eben Alexander MD, neurosurgeon and author of Living in a Mindful Universe, Proof of Heaven, and The Map of Heaven
“In An End to Upside Down Living, a follow-up to his important An End to Upside Down Thinking, author Mark Gober turns his attention from thinking to actual living. How does one put these vital ideas into practice? What difference do they make in one's life? How did he, himself, accomplish this—and why are these steps necessary for our survival as a species? This is no clever iconoclastic outburst, but a deeply sane, honest, and vital handbook for survival. We ignore Gober's voice at our own risk.” —Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: Why Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
“[Gober] takes the upside down world of business and of modern life in general, and puts them back on sound and sane feet. Worth reading — and taking to heart!” —Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and systems theorist
“Knowledge based on faulty or incomplete paradigms is necessarily flawed (geocentric astronomy, medicine before germ theory, physics before Newton, Einstein, and Schrödinger). If they consider consciousness at all, modern sciences assume that it is an epiphenomenon of brain functioning. If, as Mark Gober convincingly argues, consciousness is the foundation of the universe, then it is the foundation of all fields of knowledge, as well as their applications. Yet, aside from a few outliers, no modern discipline recognizes this. Consequently, our foundationless quest for understanding has brought us great benefits but also great harm and possible extinction. If consciousness is fundamental, then understanding it and harnessing its full potential will be humanity’s greatest breakthrough. This, therefore, may be one of the most important books you’ll ever read.”

“For spiritual travelers, Mark Gober’s newest book is like getting a ticket for an evolutionary soul journey to the infinite field of unified awareness! Readers become true seekers, as they soon discover what they thought they know, may not be their own truth anymore. They learn about “unknowns” and then realize that there are even more “unknown unknowns” on this trip through life. I found this an enlightening and intelligent presentation that fully supports my own “One Consciousness” experiences.” —William “Rev. Bill” McDonald Jr., author of Warrior: A Spiritual Odyssey & Alchemy of a Warrior’s Heart, award-winning poet, and a three-time near-death experiencer
"This book is an easy and enjoyable read, which is saying something given that it addresses most of the major mysteries of human existence and the nature of reality! It's a book that is thought-provoking, inspirational, and down-to-earth all at once. Whether you digest it slowly, reflecting on the premises made in each chapter one at a time, or devour it in one sitting, it's sure to shift your perspective and help to calibrate how you choose to view the world, and in turn, how you choose to live."
