I have tried to review this product three times now, all of them have been removed. So I thought I would try and put them here instead. Whether the fourth review makes it is uncertain - it is basically just a reworked version of number 1. Enjoy!
1. "So I tried to put some order into it.
Until I bought this book I thought that cosmic ordering was like an interstellar amazon service. I was really looking forward to ordering literature from Uranus. But now I know the truth.
First of all I wanted the planets in order of size. I know it is nearly there but I felt that the big gas giants should be nearer the sun - they are pretty cold and have been out there for millions of years, it would be nice if they got some rays. I then pushed the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter behind the sofa, put a nice Ikea table lamp by galactic central point and I am currently travelling the 100,000 light years across the galaxy to drape a bit of festive tinsel around the outer reaches. However, my life has not improved. Anyone who has followed my plight knows that I have tried the old angel cards and had a few problems. So this seemed great. I just write a list of what I want and then post it. I wasn't sure where the best place to send it was, so I sent it to Robert Mugabe, if he says something is true it must be. Nothing happened for months. I asked for world peace, an end to hunger and starvation, an end to poverty and disease and an end to discrimination and hatred. I wrote all this in the most positive language. What did Bob send? A cholera ridden bottle of water and a small piece of Edam. After that I tried again and just asked for a packet of refreshers. That still hasn't arrived.
I was interested to read that the author went to school before the advent of Human Rights - this would put him at school before 1948 but he doesn't look that old. I also noticed that the author is unashamed to be called wealthy. Which is probably fair enough considering he is getting plenty of gullible people to part with their cash.
As for the bits on betting, brilliant. However can you place a bet and win! It is not like statistics or probability play a part. He has written other books on how to win the lottery, which is a completely unbiased and random process. Don't go for numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 though. If these come up you will have to share your winnings with a lot of people!
If you fancy a laugh read the free bit available on amazon. I was wheezing on a regular basis. The fight with 300 school kids is priceless. The line "because I was a stinking Nazi" may be even better. And you will be on the floor by the time you reach "The bitter icing on my woeful cake of life...". This ain't Henry James.
I will give cosmic ordering one more try.
I want all con artists, charlatans and people who exploit the vulnerable to disappear.
Have they gone? Is this book still here?"
2. This book is brilliant, it is by far the best book I have ever read. It will change your life and I cannot recommend it enough. I have never seen anything which can compare with this. It has changed my life forever. The idea of cosmic ordering is just so wonderful and based in such fact and honesty that one cannot doubt how brilliant it is. I just feel sorry for those individuals who do not believe in this wonderful philosophy of life. It is such an open and transparent set of beliefs based in truth and rigorous foundations. I do not think that this author is a charlatan in any way, in fact I think he must be the most honest and perfect person ever. It is especially good that he shares with us his great knowledge and secrets and all he asks off us is money. He could in no way be construed as taking money off the vulnerable, he is helping all people and showing them a truth and factual path which cannot be doubted by any skeptic. If you want a taster of this book I really recommend that you read the free text available on Amazon. I was crying real tears by the time I read about his tragic fight with 300 school kids. I was also saddened to read that he was forced to describe himself as "a stinking Nazi". And I feel the line "The bitter icing on my woeful cake of life..." shows how bad things had become for this poor, honest, trustworthy, not at all a con-artist, man. But he sorted it all out with his knowledge of the true path and you can share in that too, you only need to give him some money. This is just a taster of this excellent and truly wonderful book. Read it, read it please. This man is proud of how wealthy he is. Provide him with more money, it is what he asked for. You can ask for it too and this world view based on fact and truth and science just cannot be doubted by any man. Cassius was an honourable man.
Just to add that this was written as a response to my review which was removed. You mustn't say anything bad here!
3. This book is impossible to review. I have done two and both have been removed. Why I am not allowed to express opinions when others are is beyond me. I believe that this book is rubbish, it is badly written it is also untrue. The book contains the line "The bitter icing on my woeful cake of life...", as you can see it is not exactly Henry James. I have tried cosmic ordering and it does not work. I would recommend that other people find other ways to solve their problems. I do not believe that this book will help you achieve anything. This is my view, my opinion, it is as valid as all the others inlcuding all those supporting this poor quality book. On the author's website it says that he has no shame in being wealthy. He has made money from promoting this idea. I do not believe that this works and I do not think that the book is any good. It is jumbled and confused and proves nothing. I can safely say that reading this and following its recommendations will not "turn dreams into reality". That is a fact! I would therefore recommend that you do not buy it.
Too right, it is very difficult to get anything on. The only way I have managed to get the current review on was through a negotiation with Amazon via email. I will keep trying. Good luck to yourself. There are several people like you trying to even up the balance.
I too have bought several of the products in this range. I noticed that some of the one and two star reviews kept dissappearing, I couldn't help but check each time I logged on and, sure enough reviews that I had previously read were no longer there, including your own. I was actually feeling some benefit from reading the book, I was thinking in a more positive manner which can only be a good thing. I feel daft now to think that I was swayed by all the 5 star reviews that possibly are'nt all that they seem. If you look there are a lot of new and used books being sold on by independant sellers.
Sooze, That is exactly the problem. It is not good if the reviews end up distorted. It does encourage people to buy things. It is not surprising that if you find something has loads of 5 start reviews that you believe it must be good and buy it. It is simply that as you scratch the surface and read the reviews and see what else these people have been reviewing that you become suspicious. Also my negative reviews attracted a large number of unhelpful votes even though they were only up for a few hours. I wouldn't feel daft if I were you - you have no need to do that. If this stuff works for you then that is great.
Good point S. Jameson. If you want an objective, independent evaluation of this authors work than log on to the authors personal web site. Wow it's intelligent, rational thinking like that which really sells this whole concept to me. It clearly works!
What a marvellously spiritual wish. And look how many people supported this helpful outpouring. Almost every syllable you write, Mr S Cartier, causes people to click their mouses (mice) with approbation: it must be the spirit of tolerance and rationality you exude. Bravo!
Caroline, I am happy to take responsibility for creating my own good or bad karma. The only motivation I have is to warn people about parting with good money for shoddy, rambling products. Mr Richards has written many books with criminals such as Charles Bronson. Good luck to him. I don't think I've really mentioned his 'good work' with victims of crime. Perhaps you could remind me what terrible things I'm supposed to have said. Don't you think your comments on me, that I am creating bad karma, that my heart is closed, that I've got some sort of grudge, that I'm reeking? havoc, that Mr Richards has more spirituality in his little finger than me are a little judgemental. You know nothing about me. His books are poor and I'm going to say it: end of. Nothing personal.
Caroline. Remind me how he has helped victims of crime? He has printed their stories. He has said, I think, that he doesn't care if he never sells another true crime book. If it's such a big deal, why not withdraw them all from sale, (he owns the publishing company doesn't he?), pulp them and give any profits to charity. Instead, 'I don't care if they never sell another copy' is rather limp, when you actually think about it. It's a win, win statement, isn't it, Caroline? But I don't care whether he keeps writing True Crime or not. My point is consistent. He can't write New Age, Self Help books; not at all, no way, no how. My opinion. OH, you've forgotten to tell me what I've said that causes you so much difficulty? Apart from my dislike of his writing style and the lax content of his books.
