Haunted Universe is a manual. A precise manual to the most important thing we can ever know - that we do not exist nor have we ever existed. There is no one writing this review. No one wrote Haunted Universe. It was spoken from the lips of the Dragon, utterances from the black Void that is the Universe. The Void that we constantly deceive ourselves from everyday of our nightmarish lives.
These utterances will rip your ego to shreds; the Dragon will awaken and burn it all to fiery ash. Leaving a charred husk remaining. An empty undead shell - a zombie, a vampire. But Ultimate Truth will be known. Follow this manual to the letter, read and re-read and all questions will indeed be answered.
The style is quick, confrontational, and brutal. Just like the Dragon. But it is efficient at what it does and always gets its way. Awaken the Dragon at your peril.

I disagree with the one other review here, so am writing this to try and balance things up for potential readers. This book is not pretentious at all; and although I don't agree with everything he says, as an awake person in my own right (yes, there is a person here) I do have to agree with a lot of what Norquist says. And he is obviously awake in his own way (yes, there are different kinds of awakening, some more embodied than others) so it is ridiculous for Ms Avenger above to say he's not. Presumably she doesn't know what it is to be awake. What most people won't like are the negative passages - but they are more than accurate. I found it quite a beautiful book and - at last - someone else warning you that Englightenment is NOT a fun ride at all...

This is one of those glossy awkward shaped books on spirituality which sets out at most TEN GIANT WORDS per page, and could no way ever be envisaged to travel with you in a back-pack let alone back-pocket. Also available as an audio CD - so all is well for the plastics and oil junta. Norquist is apparently nowhere near awake enough to have heard that we live on a planet of limited and precious resource. Too much time spinning poetry on some ether bound surf board. Can he really be so sure that merely because he has found a form of enlightenment all material concerns may hang in communicating such. It is one thing that he may feel that his message is currently important - but please, where is the modesty? To Norquist I say this; reprint the thing as the 8 page black and white unbound pamphlet it is supposed to be, and hand it out to people direct and for free on street corners. At present you are only reaching an extremely small fraction of the english speaking world in any case - and most of the population of the planet is (fortunately) illiterate.

a couple of pages of writing expanded into an expensive book by the simple ruse of printing one or two vacuous sentences on each page in large type. Substance is minimal - terms like "the Abyss", "Emptiness" and "the Void" are bandied about all over the place, but if this guy is enlightened, so are Simon Cowell and the boss of Goldman Sachs.
