â€˜It is difficult to know where to look for comparisons: Graham Greene, for its exquisite prose, or [Arthur C. Clarke], for its deftly imagined other-world politicsâ€™ Guardian Online.
As one looks at events in the world today this could be a guiding light.
The message that this book conveys is the message that needs to be acknowledged and understood by our so-called leaders. For if it is not acknowledged and acted upon, all change for the better is illusory.
This book reveals the magic of simplicity and how it can be applied in solving global problems.
This book manages to make you want to get to the end as fast as possible yet hang on to reread the ideas and stay in the peaceful atmosphere. How does the author get a story gripping as well as serene ? So wonderful to read fiction which is well written, and full of interesting and refreshing ideas. Can we put some of them into practice?

A novel with a real message for today's politicians.
Great mix of practical reality and sci-fi vision.
A stunningly original concept for all to consider, not least our politicians. A book you cannot put down!.
an excellent intelligent piece of fiction with a message at its heart.
A fantastic book - skillfully and convincingly written.
This is an original and daring story containing profound truths about natural law which, if followed in practice, would provide just solutions to many of the world's apparently insoluble economic problems.
A gripping read. I couldn't put it down!
We could learn a lot from this book especially about the cause of poverty and how this might be corrected. R
A delightful, modern, yet timeless yarn which brings the reader face to face with a great universal natural law. A law that if mankind understood and followed it, I believe would bring happiness and prosperity to all.
A really excellent read! Michael Hawes
