This review is from: The Book of Undoing (Kindle Edition)
First of all, wonderful pointing in The Book of Undoing!!! Love it; going through it again. Reading it again is providing more clarity. I appreciate where you say "For the first time in your life, you have a choice." This is more practical than many of the pointers from some that say otherwise when it comes to choice. Making the clear distinction between Big Me/little me in your writing helped me see where much of the oscillation was occuring that I couldn't see before. I like the fact that "Brook" runs into many of the seeming roadblocks that I was experiencing myself and you addressed the issues with such simplicity. I no longer feel that there is something unobtainable "out there" that I need to acquire "in here." I also notice that what you've said here makes oscillation more obvious. I'm almost at a loss for words here, yet I'm not. Less is more and I feel you've hit the mark in this definitive book. This is the simplicity on the subject of Non-duality that I've been anticipating for quite some time now and here it is. Thank you once again, Fred. Bravo!

I'll admit it, I bought this book as an "add-on" to my purchase of two other nonduality books in order to get the free shipping. And when it arrived today with my other books it was the first one I opened because of its short length.

Although it is a relatively short book, it is both practical and precise. Following a dialogue between Fred and an apparent seeker, the reader is encouraged to look for themselves at what is being pointed to. This includes various exercises used as a tool to help you on your way.

Priceless! 9 May 2013
By K. A. Popko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'll admit it, I bought this book as an "add-on" to my purchase of two other nonduality books in order to get the free shipping. And when it arrived today with my other books it was the first one I opened because of its short length. I thought, well, why not start with this one and be done with it since it's so short, and so I did. Not only did I start it but I finished it as well (not that that was so hard because it's only 107 pages, but oh my, what a power-packed 107 pages), and I have yet to open either of the other two books, and really don't feel I have any need to.

So, what did I find within the pages of this little gem? Simple writing and, more importantly, effective pointing to that which we are. One cannot help but discover the real nature of what we are through this imagined dialogue between Fred and "Brook" as he guides her gently and unmistakably to Being-ness itself. I think this is a rare thing in these days of growing interest in awakening as evidenced by the many books emerging for those who thirst for something more. So many of these books leave the reader lost in the words, but this one actually takes you beyond the words and shows you how to "find it", what the experience of "it" is, and what happens to "it" when imagination starts to dance again.

These are the same goals of many similar books, but this one actually succeeds in taking the reader there. It goes further than that as Fred elucidates how this already awakened and ever present awareness cannot be separate from anything else, that in fact, you are not only that awareness but "that which is". Why struggle with "what is" when you ARE that, and there is nothing other than that? Every manifestation is the mirror that reflects the reality of what you are. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE! This isn't just an idea that one takes on board, but a realization that is born of a direct visceral experience in the here and now. That's the value of this book, it is a practical handbook on waking up and nonduality.

When reading this book, read it as though you ARE Brook, and go through the process with her that Fred guides her through, because in a very real sense Brook IS you in your unexamined or confused state. And in the end you will discover that not only isn't Brook who she imagined herself to be neither are you. You will discover, as Brook did, that that which is pointed to can be easily seen/realized, and that "this" isn't some kind of confusing idea for the mind to latch onto in order to be awake, but is the very ordinary experience of every day awareness that is always here. The realization of this simple awareness/Being-ness brings with it implications that are far from ordinary.

Will I read those other two books? Of course; I love this stuff too much not to. There are some things out there to be savored because of how they are written and they become true friends, and those other books may prove themselves to be just that (and who doesn't enjoy the company of friends?). But this book is one that I have already developed a sort of reverence for because of its simplicity and effectiveness. Well done, Fred, and thank you for bringing this gift to us!

Another gem from Fred. 22 Aug. 2013
By Fish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I immediately saw myself in Fred's "client". I thought that I was unique in my path...yep, just like everyone else is.

Like most books of this nature, there is nothing Fred can GIVE or DO for you. If you're like me and have gone through countless books on Zen, Advaita, Non-Duality, etc, hoping that maybe something would "click" without any sort of effort on my part (yes, I know the non-duality police will jump on that with psuedo-awake phrases they are only repeating with no understanding), this might be the one for you. Instead of plowing through it (like I do most books like this) and saying "yea, yea, tell me something I don't already know", I got serious and took the writing like it was important. Not important so I can act wise and aloof because I can say "there is no one to suffer" (in the meantime I'm miserable about a myriad of things in my life), but because I was really tired of being miserable.

The phony facade of spiritual "I'm-more-awake-than-you", paths, tools, beads, and prayer helmets designed to "guarantee enlightenment" is rampant these days and hearing someone drone on about how there is "no one to do anything" is more than frustrating. I had the chance to speak with Fred and he is self-deprecating, funny, and honest with the things he's done in his life and proof that the answer doesn't lie in learning more phrases, adopting a far-eyed-stare, wearing patchouli (you know, so blind people can hate you too) or coming up with some foreign name that you hope will lend street-cred to what you say. All of those things are just more crap you have to wade through. As I was reading this book, I found myself laughing at all of the games I've played along the way that have just led me around in circles.

Your answer lies in seeing what you already are, have been, and always will be. Read this book as if you are literally speaking to Fred. If there is a question, ponder it and see if it really is true for you.

I'll avoid ending this with a cryptic question like "what do you have to lose", but then I'd have to slap myself in the face.

Instead, I wish you good luck.

Direct Pointing Sessions 3 May 2013
By Will Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For the exhausted spiritual seeker this book is dynamite. It literally blows your mind. Fred Davis takes you on an intense and exciting journey of discovery into the true nature of experience and Self. Using "direct pointers" he leads you from the "unit's" (the body-mind) limited view to the limitless view of experience. If you have any knots, kinks, or walls, any resistance to what is, this book, if you are open, intent, and sincere, will undo, unravel, any remaining doubts you may have as to who you are. I say: GO FOR IT!

This book undid me 14 May 2013
By Laurk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book on line, in the middle of the night when I woke up and could not get back to sleep. I found it completely by chance. By the next morning my consciousness had made a definite shift. I don't expect the world will ever look quite the same again. Don't think about a it...don't let yourself be distracted from this opportunity, just read this book now!
