Coined “Spine-tingling,” i.e., a five star review of my book by L.G…

“I review and edit books for a living (so please know that I do not say these things casually), but with this wonderful little book, I am posting this informal review because I am in love with it. What initially struck me about the book, is that it is certainly not written in a spirit which is consistent with what has evolved in the publishing industry as the common and highly choreographed `nonfiction publishing-speak.’ The publisher’s book description explains that it is written in a way which “is lovingly passive in its tone (voice and pretense),” and that it “is not self-promoting, self-aggrandizing, or evangelistic. It is a beautiful, superbly benevolent, and exceedingly well-thought-out health and wellness way-of-life (which is humbly devoid of legalistic or religious tendencies or bias). Its voice is untarnished – it never competes or sells.” They said this QUITE WELL: it is truly no joke. The book sincerely sets forth many exceptionally deep and important principles, so much so that one might have to read it at least a few times to begin to acutely appreciate its deeper insights and revelations. Some may pass it off as esoteric, incautiously passing-off their lack of understanding by insinuating that its philosophy requires that readers need some sort of obscure or mysterious knowledge to be able to value it. Nothing could be further from the truth: This is NOT easy stuff. It is demanding and highly challenging to the reader (in a loving humble way) – which is one of the primary points of this philosophy, i.e., “life is difficult.” All said, what most impresses me about this book is its no-joke sense of deep humility. It is one of the beautiful aspects of its tone. My last two points about the book: (1) In setting forth the concept of “True Health through True Responsibility,” the originality of its deeper meaning can easily be missed, i.e., as set forth in a statement by the publisher: “Most especially, this health and wellness philosophy is distinguished by its remarkable, thought-provoking, and ingenious notion of coalescing ethics and morality and deeply-rooted insight/objectivity skills with conceptions of health and wellness, i.e., True Health and/or True Health through True Responsibility. It sets forth that one cannot realize True Health without the necessary and truly skilled attributes of deep insight, morality, clear objectivity – learning the True Skill of being able to look within and without (into one’s internal and external environments), without fear, without preset patterns of thinking. It sets forth the importance of True Honesty – gathering a level of objective insight that introduces one to the notion of not needing anything to hide behind.” (2) This might sound a bit silly and strange, but I don’t care: In reading the book, quite a few times I did experience those “loving, spine-tingling feelings” that the author speaks of. Consequently, but not limited to, this book realized one of its most important goals as I see it, i.e., it did “make the (my) world a better place” on a number of fronts.”

A five star review of my book, coined “Great Book!”

“A big resounding bravo! This is an extremely important work. It is surprising that such a serious book is categorized in the Self-Help genre, not where I would expect to find such writing. Even while attempting to draw from decades of experience as a philosophy professor, I find it difficult to gauge the importance of this book; though, no matter, it should be viewed as with great respect and appreciation. It is extremely well written, and it concisely connects an AMAZING number of significantly profound and deeply meaningful dots in a way that is mind boggling. It punches hard, yet does so in a loving, empathetic, and unpretentious way. I am very thankful to have had the great fortune of reading it. I plan to spread the word!”

A review of my book by Susan Mahoney – “Once again patient with MS…”

“I was feeling depressed and hopeless when I saw this beautiful cover, and the shining sun call to me. I opened it and there was a warm friendly documentary about how health can be reversed by methods of beliefs and will power. It is deep and intense, yet written in layperson’s terms that it gives a reader a glimpse of Heaven, which is hope that illness can be reversed if we believe and work on our thoughts, diet and such. In the author’s description, readers can see what this reader saw in this book, too. In ‘A Glimpse of Heaven,’ the author’s words modestly depict a beautiful, altruistic, benevolent, and well-rounded health and wellness philosophical way-of-life – while conveying a powerful message whose purpose is to assist in making the world a better place.” I still read it, like my health bible and follow his updates on Facebook.”

A review of my book by Anna P…

“A beautifully written, soulful document encouraging us to treat ourselves and each other with kindness, grace and dignity. For those who find a jarring harshness in the every day world, this book is a tonic for your spirit. I resonated with every word, yet it made me even more aware of the discrepancy between what Dr. Hepker teaches and the way our culture really is. The challenge is to maintain a beautiful spirit and a healthy body in a culture where vampires and werewolves are the norm in media, dog eat dog is the expected behavior in business, and even so-called “nice” people, spurred on by the anonymity of the internet or by their own self-righteousness, do harm to others and call it ‘good.'”

A review of my book by Sarah-Pink…

I was gifted this book soon after it was published. I do read quickly, but I read and literally stored every precious word in it four times the day I received it. I have two terminal diseases and Dr. Hepker, through his book is saving my life everyday. I have learned the True Health philosophy and it is amazing.Thank you so very much for writing this book. It helps me every single day of my life. I recommend this book to everyone. It is a must have, must read.

Jackie Starr’s review of my book, A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health #kkst #ASMSG

“I first began reading this incredibly well written book when it was excerpted on FB; then decided to order the book so I could read it in its entirety.

Dr. Glen Hepker writes in a very mystical format…it is based on a little known philosophy, (Ming Chia) which “supports the theory that the quality of our lives would be greatly enhanced if we took True Responsibility for our own health and wellbeing…” It stressed that this belief does NOT go against other religions or spiritual beliefs. Part of our healing can come thru doing the right thing for the right reasons; (not because we want to be acknowledged for doing so), as well as being a true witness; presenting only the facts, and being honest with ourselves, as well as others. I know others will enjoy it; to me it is was a ‘must have.’ When you purchase it, you will feel the same.”
