Book Review: Peace at the Edge of Uncertainty by Neil Hanson
Publication Date:May 3, 2010
In this story told in the first-person form of a letter from a middle-aged man to his deceased father, Hanson invites us to journey with him through the final days of the father’s life, finding a magical transition waiting at the end of that journey. The story weaves end-of-life reality and spiritual questioning into a sensitive and revealing tapestry of Truth and Wisdom. The tapestry is colored with true stories of mystical experiences that inform the spiritual path of the son.
Most of us will face difficult and painful end-of-life decisions with the most important people in our lives. The threads of this aspect of the story are sensitive, and Hanson reveals the struggles and destinations of the son as he wrestles deeply with the journey that he must walk in making these decisions for his dying father.
These struggles are played out within the context of the spiritual canvas that the son has built his life around. Hanson opens the Kimono to the personal experiences and traditions that have led the son to his spiritual reality, and invites the reader to rigorously reject certainty when it comes to either spiritual faith or rejection of faith, in order to open paths that could lead to greater Understanding.

Review:This book by Neil Hanson allows you a rare glimpse into personal experience. I know you're asking, "What's new about that?" We've read hundreds of books on accomplishments and what a preferred method is. This book, however, is not another one of those books. We hear about mistakes, weaknesses, bleak moments. To hear that some of what he writes about, some is what we have felt/done....it's almost refreshing. It's not good that anyone goes through certain things, but knowing you aren't alone in them, somehow makes them slightly easier to get through. Knowing someone has overcome them, all the better. I read this book in one sitting, while not very long, there is a wealth of knowledge in the pages that are there. This is a wonderful late Sunday afternoon read.
