Interesting but uninspiring Nov. 5 2012
By zen cowboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you are a student of Dr David Hawkins, this book will add little to his own books. If you are also a fan, then there are plenty of details in this book that I have not seen anywhere else. At the same time, the important events in the Doc's life have already been spoken of in the many lectures and interviews.
Overall this biography is very impersonal and spends about half the time talking about general backround data that anyone connected with Dr Hawkins would already know.
The doubt that the author exhibits in the later chapters becomes tiring after a while. Unfortunately the author does not believe that Dr Hawkins is a teacher of enlightenement, only a teacher of "his form of enlightenment". This pretty much limits the focus of this biography to a listing of facts and figures. I would have been interested in finding out how Dr Hawkins changed the lives of so many people, as he changed mine. To me this is the bottom line of a spiritual teacher. I am sure if the author had a better connection with Dr Hawkins *and* his teaching, he would have been able to produce a truly inspiring work.
If you like dates and facts and general backround, read this book. Otherwise, any single random page from a Dr Hawkins book is much more inspiring and useful. Thank you.

Makes the Doc Human! Jan. 6 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Some reviewers don't like this book because they don't think it inspires like Dr. Hawkins' books. How could it? I don't believe that was the purpose. I am avid student of Dr. Hawkins' work. This book underscored that the highest spiritual states are achievable by all of us, which Dr. Hawkins always taught. For those of us who only met Dr. Hawkins after he was in the enlightened state it is an eye opener. It made me have more compassion for people who struggle with addictions. It also reminded me that Dr. Hawkins was a HUMAN BEING, a wonderful human being with his own quirks. Dr. Hawkins always told us that all a student owes a spiritual teacher is respect and to be careful not to deify the teacher. I don't find any of the materials disrespectful to Dr. Hawkins. I don't agree with everything in the book, but I don't feel that is necessary to find it of value.

Content 4, Structure 2 Nov. 7 2012
By Koko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I discovered Dr. Hawkins via a dream that led me to attend one of his 2003 lectures. I was so impressed, I purchased the entire video lecture series. I was not disappointed and have since purchased and read several of Doc's books. I enjoyed this biography because it put a human face on the man who seemed larger than life to me. I'm delighted to find we had some of the same phobias and he overcame them--it gives me hope. I was also amazed at the wide range of his life's work. Doc was truly a modern day Da Vinci with a multitude of talents. He was indeed a genius!

I would have liked more insight into his personal life (marriages & children) which is merely skimmed over. I also found the lack of a straight timeline confusing. The author skipped back & forth in time making it hard to put events in context. It seems Doc picked up and moved to Sedona leaving his wife and daughters in New York. Had he divorced then? None of that is clear.

The fact this is not an "authorized" biography doesn't bother me a bit. Most biographies aren't authorized and the ones that are tend to sugar-coat the person's life. Even so, there was nothing in this biography that diminished my admiration for Dr. Hawkins. I now see his Enlightenment didn't come in a sudden flash, but was attained from decades of hard work & searching.

An enlightening read Sept. 30 2012
By Steve Waite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Those who are interested in the life of Dr. David R. Hawkins, (June 3, 1927 - September 19, 2012) and his journey to an enlightened state of being will undoubtedly enjoy Scott Jeffrey's book, "Doctor of Truth." The publication of the book is timely with Hawkins' recent passing. It is clear the author did his homework. His friendship and familiarity with Dr. Hawkins and his work, not to mention his involvement over the years with the ConsciousnessProject.org, provided a solid foundation for the biography. Having recently edited two books with Dr. Hawkins ("Along the Path to Enlightenment" and "Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self") and featured his work in a previously published book ("Creativity Revealed"), one can easily appreciate the blessing the author received from Dr. Hawkins upon undertaking the project in January 2005.

"Doctor of Truth" is engaging on many levels and cruises along at a brisk pace in an easy-to-read manner. To the author's credit, even longtime followers and students of Dr. Hawkins will gain new insights from the book. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of Hawkins' distinguished medical career, the time he spent at Woodstock assisting those who experienced bad LSD trips (God bless you, Doc!), and the dancing lessons he received from his daughter. The book lacks an Index section, which would come in handy for reference purposes. All in all, I found "Doctor of Truth" to be a delightful read and highly recommend it.

I would encourage all those interested in the life and teachings of Dr. David R. Hawkins to read all of his published materials and check out the many CDs and DVDs that are available online. There is easily a lifetime's worth of material to read and contemplate, and being exposed to the material is a blessing in and of itself.

One last note: for those who have heard about the controversy surrounding "Doctor of Truth," we suggest reading the author's reply at this link: [...]

The Journey March 28 2014
By Antoinette Atanasoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Insights into Dr. Hawkins life show he had the same things to deal with in life as we all do. His spiritual journey is fascinating, he talks about his transformation from despair to enlightenment. His experiences shaped his understanding of the world and how and why he dedicated his life to Truth. Highly recommend
