Praise for Transcend:
"A thought provoking portrayal of our capacities as individuals in ending the unfortunate inhumanity prevelant in the world today."
Clea Mcdougall - Ascent Magazine.
"Full of insight, uncanny in its timeliness, this poignant work is extraordinary."
Maria Rodriguez - The New York Open Center
"Richard Joseph is the working man's Herman Hesse."
Ray Sikorski - Author of Driftwood Dan
"The book was written before September 11th, yet his shock at the reality of what he sees is prescient of our shock at the reality we see around us now."
"This is real philosophy, written by a real person, someone who truly and earnestly believes in what he is saying. Joseph ponders and explores the underpinnings of society. Transcend will make you think."
Beth Hendry - Top 500 Reviewer, Amazon.com
"We need more books that not only tell us, but show us that personally lives versions of the Hero's Journey are needed to get to the truths tht really work for us. The author calls for informal groups to discuss the problems of our nation, and its place in the world. Amen!"
Craig Chalquist - Top 500 Reviewer, Amazon.com
"Anyone reading Transcend with even a half-open mind will be challenged to consider many previously unasked questions within themselves. (...) The questions remind us that reality (the world) is much larger than the area covered in our puny daily commute to and from... anywhere. Read this book! Rattle the cage!"
Dave Cymbalisty - Top 1000 Reviewer, Amazon.com
"You Will have to read it yourself. I will only try to inspire and titilate you. By any means, get ahold of this book and get into what he is saying."
GS Yeargans - Top 500 Reviewer, Amazon.com
