Praise for #Loneliness: The Virus of the Modern Age
Throughout history, when the world experiences a great crisis, some unknown with the formula for dissolving that crisis has always arisen. The hand of destiny selects people of troubled and ordinary status and gives them great jobs to do in life as an inspiration and an object lesson to others.
We are facing the biggest problems in human existence in meeting the challenges over the next two decades that hardly any human can escape.
Tony’s story of survival through the most difficult childhood and testing times on the streets of London and in the corporate world gave rise to the man who now shares his story and guides us with his intrinsic philosophies. This is only the beginning of what the world will know of this inspiring, selfless being.
His words are beautifully and intelligently crafted into every line and are able to pierce the cocooned world that blocks us from the truth as we permit the noise of our daily reality to control and direct our lives, reprogram our conditioned consciousness, and open our hearts and minds to awaken our genius.
There is no single review that will express the feeling you get when you turn the pages of an essential life manual. I hope my contribution helps you gain an understanding of the magnitude of importance in this message.
Tony has life’s gift of transmuting what we all know within us into words that everyone can relate to. This is a most powerful talent.
#Loneliness: The Virus of the Modern Age answers our true calling to reach the next level and starts a revolution in thinking and education and start the journey as the collective oneness we know we are. This is a journey we must all engage in to create heaven on earth and save us from oblivion.
Thank you, Tony, for being the light that others can walk toward, for being the bridge from the shadows to the sunlight, from not knowing to knowing, and thank you for your commitment to the most important contribution to the progression of humanity and the planet.
—Joel Alexander Van der Molen, managing director, Vandercom
Tony explains beautifully the meaning and consequence of loneliness, a universally experienced, major fact of modern life. This book effortlessly points out that we have missed the point and value of connectedness and how without connectedness and love, loneliness can be a killer.
This is a must-read book for everyone to better understand times when we have all been lonely, currently may be lonely, or may experience loneliness in the future. This book breaks the myths about what loneliness is, and if we read it, we will transmute the sea of loneliness into an ocean of oneness.
—Vicki Wusche, author of Property for the Next Generation
Thousands upon thousands of books adorn endless bookshelves in bookshops all over the world, and so do millions of pages on the Internet. How on earth is one to know which one will be worth reading?
#Loneliness: The Virus of The Modern Age is a rare book that has something for everyone. No matter how much a hardened critic, how skeptical, how vulnerable, how soft-centered, or how hard-core scientific you may be, rest assured there is something for you in this book.
When the words written are born of hard-earned, sometimes excruciating experiences, crafted in response to the raw imperative to communicate, and driven relentlessly by the unstoppable impulse to nourish, enliven, and heal those in pain who are searching, yearning, even dying for connection and meaning, there is a vitality and energy that transcends the words and touches the soul.
There may be only one line, or it may be the whole book; whatever the case, it will be as if it had been written for you. The fundamental truth about all human experience is that separation and loneliness exist so we might find our way to that place of connection and meaning that resides eternally within.
Tony knows this. He learned it the only way it can be learned—he lived the journey of awakening and surrendering to the experience of isolation and dying to be reborn, heal, and bring that healing to others.
It is a privilege to share his work with you. If you are serious about transformation and change, the exercises are tried and tested and will serve you for a lifetime. Do yourself a favor and read at least the beginning; this man’s life and journey are awe-inspiring.
—Dr. Kim A. Jobst, MA, DM, MRCP, MFHom
“Don’t be ashamed of your story; it will inspire others” (unknown author). It does indeed. In this emotional yet healing book, Tony relates the most gripping stories that led him home and offered the gifts that he shares with us—the gift of healing wounds and the courage to allow ourselves to embrace our “whol-i-ness.” Give yourself this priceless gift that this book is, read it with childlike curiosity, and learn to speak your truth, honor your soul, and center your being. Keep shining and sharing your gifts.
My realization has been that it’s the person who writes the book to whom I pay my respects and send salutations. If a wealthy stranger gives you a trunk of gold, whom do you thank? The gold? No! The person who gave you the gold.
I wholeheartedly thank Tony for bringing these astounding insights and knowledge to the world; they bleed out of every chapter; these are jewels of wisdom and information that we would need a lifetime to discover on our own; he reveals with every word a new beginning.
In every chapter, he remarkably unveils the amazing secrets and methods of how to live life in joy and purpose without fear of loneliness and certainly with the absence of loneliness.
As you read each line, you will feel the presence of someone who is truly in sync with your pain, past, future, and dreams; in such a magical way you will experience him holding your hand and bringing a welcome change to your life with subtlety and care.
Tony, through his descriptive and true-life experiences, suspends you in the very room you are reading his book and gives you a three-dimensional view of what pain and loneliness mean.
I have always called Tony the See-Through Coach. By reading this book, he has allowed me to access the deepest part in me; his depth of experience sees through my next step in life. This is refreshing and enlightening, and it’s beautifully written.
Thank you, Tony, for seeing through me, for helping my son and my family, and for allowing me to echo your profound message to this world through my work.
Now is the time to wake up! This book will do just that for you.
