Reviews

"Piercing. Peter Kingsley is a master of adamantine prose and peerless scholarship. His work is truly worthy of that overworked term wisdom. And he is a master stylist: he turns you upside down and inside out without your knowing it is happening. This book will inspire, delight and enlighten many but will also challenge others because it is a mirror that reflects our most stubborn prejudices about the origins of our most sacrosanct cultural beliefs. And for that, Peter Kingsley deserves the highest praise." --Larry Dossey, M.D., author, "Reinventing Medicine" and "The Power of Premonitions"
"Let this book wake you up into new sunlight. It is not just a book, and so to be read with the mind. Peter Kingsley's voice is a friend, and also a way of seeing, of remembering essence, of walking in a great circle around an island you have always loved, but only rarely visited." --Coleman Barks, translator of Rumi
"The rich and dense scholarship in this book is admirable, nay incredible, with worldwide scope. Scholarly discussion depends on evidence--of which "A Story Waiting to Pierce You" offers the most surprising riches combined with overwhelming expertise." --Walter Burkert, author, "Greek Religion" and "Babylon, Memphis, Persepolis"
"By challenging some of our most fundamental perceptions of early European history, Peter Kingsley pushes out the horizon of the modern world and opens a new chapter in our appreciation of European-Asian relations. His innovative research into the spiritual and intellectual debt of ancient Greece to Inner Asia not only broadens our understanding of the past, but also helps us to understand better who we are today." --Jack Weatherford, author, "Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World"
"This is a small book. You can read it in an hour. I suggest that you read it several times and really get the golden idea at its core. Then bring that idea to everything you do--every decision, every choice, every plan, every interpretation. Live by an entirely different guidance. Walk like you've never walked before." --Thomas Moore, author, "Care of the Soul" and "The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life"
"A blazingly alive work of scholarship and spiritual insight" --Jacob Needleman, author, "What is God?" and "The Heart of Philosophy"
"In this profoundly erudite and eloquent book is a startling ancient secret that will forever alter the way we think about the origins of western civilization." --Pir Zia Inayat Khan
"The book's controversial claims are based on impeccable scholarship and thus should be taken seriously. Highly recommended." "Choice "(April 2011)"
