"The world of E.J. Gold transcends the wisdom of Buddha, the literary genius of Shakespeare, the artistic talent of Picasso, the humor of Will Rogers, and thoroughly homogenizes this transcendency with the mystical rays of the ethereal cosmos." -- Dr JR
"No comment." -- J. Edgar Hoover.
"E.J. Gold is a true voyager in the heroic tradition, always keeping the highest aims and the purest ethics close to his heart throughout his explorations." -- Iven Lourie
"E.J. Gold offers a rich feast. With finger poking us to wake up and pointing the way, he is a timeless translator for a lasting tradition in a clear and potent format." -- Dan Millman
"There is nobody that I know that I associate so much with the 'devious guide' (kash mir) . . . I have come to appreciate E.J.
