A New Book That Will Change Your Life Forever!

I am delighted to share with you details of my new book, and for anyone reading "The Cherry Tree Garden" I know it will change their life forever!

I like to also think the book is timely, as we see  so much chaos, confusion, and misery in the world.

I am confident the book will be spiritually uplifting and enlightening, for I share in the book many spiritual visitation experiences over my humble 60 years of physical life.

The Book Features: The Four Cycles of the Human Condition, Celestial Visitation Experiences, Spiritual Sensory Awareness and the Different Vibration Levels, Visitation Predictions and Warnings, The Real True Story of the Garden of Eden and Location, Divine Structure including Celestial Ascendancy Deities often deemed as Mythical Gods, Divine Celestial Elders and Divine Family Elders and Guides. Divine Creation and the Covenants of Natural Law for Greater Knowledge, Wisdom, and Enlightenment. Alien Life and other Worlds and Dimensions, Learning to see far more Reality around you, The Rising of the Chinese Dragon with a Heart, Evolution and Human Primate Responsibility as Good Shepherds, Equality and Reverence to Sacred Vessels of Motherhood and All Life!

All of our journeys start with a beginning and end, yet sometimes we can pause, or stop, to see, admire, or digest an event, or moment in our lives. So often these subtle signs and events have far greater meaning and relevance. So the reading of “The Cherry Tree Garden” is such a moment, and event in your life, and meant to be, as you continue on your journey in search of finding the answers.

“Just as a wind and breeze can change direction and be invisible to your naked eye, one knows of such a presence and existence from such an entity.” ~ Alastair R Agutter

The Cherry Tree Garden Book is available in traditional print and on digital, including kindle and nook from all these good book stores:-

Review: The Compleat Angler

The Compleat Angler The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In 1981 representatives of the British Library presented an early leather bound edition of "The Compleat Angler" Book. At that time, back in 1981, it was claimed that The Compleat Angler was the third biggest selling book in history, after Pilgrims Progress, and the Holy Bible.

I was commissioned by the Izaak Walton Foundation to make and design a collection of limited edition split bamboo cane rods to commemorate the "Tercentenary" 1683. To do my very best, I wanted to get the real feel for the time and moment. I therefore read from cover to cover this work, that I found inspiring. I cannot say Charles Cotton, or Izaak Walton, were great anglers. But their journeys as friends and companions to various Rivers, and Venues in Blighty, made the book fascinating to read.

The Compleat Angler for me is a book worth investing in for those long winter months, as you warm up by a log fire, hearing the crackle of the chestnut logs, with a warm glow to your face from the fire and dream about the fish you plan to catch, the following season.

Review: Lessons in Tennis A Text Book of the Game

Lessons in Tennis A Text Book of the Game Lessons in Tennis A Text Book of the Game by George Agutter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With the recent new book by Johnnie Mac (John McEnroe), about Tennis and his life and love for the game, we have come a long way in the Sport since my Great Uncle's day. When he greatly contributed to Tennis in the United States leading, to becoming President (Dean) of the American Lawn Tennis Players Association.

Today, many folk say "not to dwell on the past, or look back" but very often by looking onto history can we find treasures to enlighten, and remind us of our roots, and the standards we need to maintain or aspire too set down by our kin and ancestors.

Any young sports person taking up the sport of tennis today, can do well to study the history of the game, for such a book as this, will help a player to begin a journey of dedication, finite precision and skill development.

Review: Everyday Super Food

Everyday Super Food Everyday Super Food by Jamie Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As a more seasoned member of society these days, getting old, and experienced life's journey to the end degree. I have to admire and take my hat off to this remarkable young man. If at anytime our Millennials seek to be inspired by a persons drive, passion, dedication and hard work, it is Jamie!

This book as like many others he has written and produced, selling over 20 million of his books, is beautifully designed and crafted, laid out to only inspire us all to cook far more healthy foods, rather than processed products (ready meals) that consist of many chemicals and toxins, that do poison the body over time, hence more cancers and allergies today!

The book is full colour throughout, and brilliant value for money. I know I am not alone in saying it is a cookery book with recipes that will always be treasured in the cooks library.

This book was the inspiration for me to write "Super Foods Tropical Fish and Discus", thanks Jamie!

Review: Competitive Fly Fishing

Competitive Fly Fishing Competitive Fly Fishing by Tony Pawson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An excellent book to read for any ardent followers of sport and fishing. Tony Pawson in his life, represented England for cricket, and also Oxford for football. His sporting success was carried into his latter years, and with a little help from someone not mentioning any names for fishing tackle, became the World Individual Fly Fishing Champion in 1982.

Throughout Tony Pawson's life time he was a highly respected and a very much loved person, his quality of journalism was second to none, and this is reflected in this book. He is very sadly missed by the very many who had the privilege to known him.
