"Your books are incredibly helpful - among the best out there." Frank Metz, personal correspondence, Mar 2018

"I think Supersoul and The Power of You are by far the most cutting edge research I've read in a long time. It's a shame other writers aren't joining the dots like you've done, then perhaps your work will gain more validation." Marc Fletcher, personal correspondence, Jul 2017

"I have read lots of books dealing with spiritual topics. Your latest books belong to the best in this field. They are highly interesting and provide a lot of food for thought. I totally resonate with you supersoul model. I think you are doing a great job and I am very grateful to you for having written your books which are really inspiring." Ingolf Erben, personal correspondence, Jul 2017

"An excellent book, at the forefront of research into these areas. Fascinating subjects covered, for anyone interested in leading-edge information into the nature of the self, consciousness and spirit." Review on, Jun 2015

"The book is excellent in every way… a thought-provoking summary of research and a compilation of metaphysics, of spirituality and of the science of everything. A 'must read' for everyone who is interested in what life is all about." Review on, Jun 2014

"Lawton noticed that a number of unrelated sources, some channelled, some not, imply that our true nature is not existence as isolated souls, but participants in a larger group soul, to which we are something like the pseudopod of an amoeba. His book puts together information from many sources into an intelligent and thoughtful synthesis of his own, which concludes that we are, indeed, parts of what he calls a supersoul. His research is both excellent and well-documented – a rare virtue in books of this kind – and his writing, though rapid and unpretentious, is clear and easy-to-read… I have read a very large number of books on the general topic of the paranormal and the afterlife, and consider this a real addition to the field."

"As in The Big Book of the Soul, Ian Lawton continues his exploration of the structure of the spiritual world. In Supersoul, Ian researches the accounts of various people who have had out-of-body experiences and tries to pull them together into three possible models of soul activity. Basically he asks, 'What is an oversoul, and what is it doing'? I think this a great book for anyone who is interested in exploring the mysteries of existence. Ian is quite sincere in his efforts and does a fantastic job of organizing and laying out the material. He's definitely a person I would like to spend time with asking questions. This and The Big Book of the Soul have made a permanent mark on how I see the world I live in. The material may sound a bit fantastic or perplexing, but it is certainly worth considering." Review on, Feb 2014

"I received my copy last week and can't put it down. For anyone sincerely interested in unlocking the mysteries of consciousness and creation I highly recommend reading this book. What Ian has done has put together the experiences and explorations of the many people who have been able to project their consciousness outside of their physical body and collate their experiences into an objective view of reality and creation… As far as I have read, Ian is the only author who has now objectively collated and discerned such a wide range of material and attempted to put the jigsaw together in terms of how we can understand consciousness that lies beyond our conscious self… I believe ultimately this book has greatly enhanced my knowing that we are also nonphysical beings with a nonphysical self that we have forgotten and for the most part do not have conscious access to. I am excited at the possibilities of awakening and accessing our greater self and this book has shown anyone can do so if they have the intention… I would say this is an awesome attempt in putting the jigsaw together whilst also honouring the experiences and testimonies of all those who have accessed the mysteries of nonphysical reality and life beyond our finite physical self."

The Power of You

"Brilliant content and well researched. Empowering guidance from various spiritual sources, presented in a logical sequence. Highly recommended." Review on, Mar 2018

"Yhought provoking and as usual well researched and mind blowing." Review on, May 2016

"An excellent book on the subject of our innate potential and on living our lives to the fullest. Well worth a read." Review on, Jun 2015

"Your new material feels as close to 'truth' as I've encountered during my extensive and lengthy spiritual journey, and as an illustration of its impact on me I'm immediately embarking on a second reading of POY in order to fully absorb the multitude of powerful messages. Most breathtaking of all is the 'we are all God-Creators' image - the potential that holds for the transformation of mankind is stunning in its scope and vision. I'm now planning on engaging fully with the suggestions put forward in your book - I've always believed in putting theories into action and I'm rather keen on becoming a god incarnate and living my life in joy and luxury. Thanks again for getting hold of this material and for getting it out there - I believe that in years to come you will be seen as one of the most significant and important Spiritual messengers of the modern age, so please continue your exploration of our potential." Duncan Bain Smith, personal correspondence, Dec 2014


What Jesus Was Really Saying

"Yet another very interesting and readable book from the author. The life of Jesus is analysed from a rational point of view, pointing out that miracles can be done by mere mortals. As usual, the author has researched the subject thoroughly and ideas are well supported by quotes and evidence. We are shown that Jesus was actually teaching people to empower themselves to make differences in their lives rather than placing their faith in religious leaders. The book has got me thinking of Jesus being human like the rest of us rather than a son of a god, and his life and teachings actually become even more significant when seen in that light." Review on, Sep 2016

"I am reading all of Ian Lawton's books as they become published. He is highly readable although highly challenging. This book can be read in a couple of hours but will provoke much thought and reflection afterwards. It does, however, involve a rethink of traditional Christian thought and certainly the institutions it created. It was a book I needed to read for a greater understanding of Jesus's ministry distilled down to its basic message. I would recommend this book and indeed all of his work actually. It can be mind blowing at times! As a consultant clinical psychologist I wish I had had this work years ago to help understand life in general and suffering in particular." Review on, Mar 2016

Sh*t Doesn't Just Happen!!

The God Who Sometimes Screwed Up

"This well written and interesting book is a memoir on two levels. The first level is where he recaps his physical life, his parents, family, his early years as a motorcycle and auto racer, his loves, his career, his moves etc. I learned a lot about racing from reading this (I had no previous knowledge). He makes you feel the thrills and chills of a race - and the dangers… But the second level is by far the most interesting. Here we see the evolution of his thinking. He goes from pure 3D materialist to a lofty spiritual consciousness. It is well worth reading the book just to read the final chapter… He is not just 'talking the talk, he is walking the walk'." Joe Poloansky, Diamond Fire Magazine

"This is what spirituality is about. The journey, not the arrival. The thinking you have the absolutely definite answer to the meaning of life, then watching it all crumble before your eyes so you have to go back to square one. Giving space for the heart to expand, not the head to dictate. How we cope with getting up and dusting ourselves off defines how far we progress along the spiritual path, and Ian demonstrates his skill in this respect in all kinds of scenarios: coming off bikes at high speed, crashing cars at high speed, being hit by a car in a car park and thrown up in the air (you need to read the book to find out what happens here) but also falling madly, deeply in love, only to see that come crashing down too. Is there a theme here? Yes. It’s the real life story of a red-blooded male who despite wanting big, fast boy toys and nice women, also craves a sense of belonging and completion in his emotional and spiritual life. Read it. This guy can write." Review on, Dec 2018

"I've read most of Ian's books and this is the best one by far the simple reason he writes it from his heart. It covers his spiritual life journey – from an atheist working in corporate to become one of the leading international writers of spiritual books. When I got a copy I couldn't put it down until I'd read it all. Highly recommended." Review on, Dec 2018
