As an Advance Reading Copy, NUMENON won

Adults, rejoice! We no longer have to read the kids' copy of Harry Potter because we have Sandy Nathan and Numenon!I could not put it down. Numenon is an epic of similar proportions to Jean Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear ... is superbly written, and beautifully weaves a treasure-trove of spiritual and intellectual wisdom into the story. I am totally enthralled. Where's the sequel? --Ilene Dillon, MSW
Host, Full Power Living

The collision of commerce and spirit, the world's richest man and an ancient Native American shaman, a global corporation larger than any other and the quiet strength at the core of the natural world this is thriller and metaphor and life lesson in the hands of a writer who has journey'd through both worlds. -- Gerald DiPego Screenwriter, Phenomenon

The material and spirit world clash in this well-written adventure novel. A fantastic intellectual work which makes readers question their priorities in this life. A highly-recommended title. -- USA Book News

Quotes Sandy Liked

Sandy Nathan
“If your leg is in a cast, it's really dumb to sit in front of your computer doing unnecessary stuff with it hanging down. Your leg will swell and heal slower, if at all. When you go to your doctor, he/she will give you one of those "you're really dumb and self destructive" looks. Also, "Why didn't you follow my orders and rest?" Your doctor will be right, and so will mine at my next office visit. Elevate, folk! Elevate your mind, your soul, and your leg, in the order needed!”
Sandy Nathan, Numenon

“If someone says, "You can make it!" down a vertical mountain when you don't ski very well, think about it before launching. This can be a turning point in your life. It sure was in mine when I slammed into the mountain.

I wish I'd said, "F'getabout it, sucka," and gone to the Kiddie Corral. Would have saved a lot of pain and surgery.

Think about this. What are you really up for? Is the thrill worth the cost?”

“When I came out of anesthesia, I wanted two things: my husband and my dog. They wouldn't let the dog in the recovery room.”

“I’ve always hated the “Who are you?" question. This is a philosophical inquiry. Answering that question is why we’re on earth. You can’t answer it in thirty seconds or in an elevator.”
Sandy Nathan, Numenon

“Concerning the popularity of vampire books:

I don't get it. I think people should read about bloody, heart-singing, mind-searing spirituality.

Live your heart’s song, not its drippings.

Sandy Nathan, Numenon
