Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

The Creativity Book: A Year's Worth of Inspiration and Guidance

Burning Spirit spans through years of author Banzai Vitale’s life as well as his spiritual walks. From stuntman, to the works of Neal Donald Walsh, to The Burning Man celebration, Banzai takes in what he can from each experience.

I picked this book to read because I do like reading about other people’s spiritual experience and I saw he was a stuntman for the tv series Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I found the writing to be casual, as if I was hearing him speak. I was surprised to learn that he had read Conversations With God by Neal D. Walsh. We have different opinions about that book but knowing that he read Walsh’s book I felt an understanding.

I did not like that most of time he mentions have a spiritual experience is when he high on ecstasy or Lsd. I believe there is a way to experience God, nature and yourself without drugs. In fact I know for a fact as I have never done drugs or felt the need to use them to feel at one with universe. He also never explains exactly what kind of closeness he feels with the universe just that was high and his vision and touch was heightened.

I was very disappointed in Burning Spirit because Mr. Virtue did not seem to put much interest in spiritual findings without drugs and if he did he did not think much of it.
