"Intriguing topic discussed with eloquence ….Stimulating and mind-stretching…Subjects of elemental and universal interest: belief, pleasure, freedom, fear, death, time, analysis and the unconscious, images, love, sexuality, meditation, evolution."
—Los Angeles Times
"Joel Kramer, in his own unique way, shares through his own life adventures, direct ways of helping you to experience you being both the Known and the Knower."
"Thank you for The Passionate Mind. It held my interest throughout, which for me is unusual. You present basic verities in a way that anyone could assimilate, with beauty and simplicity."
"Perhaps Joel Kramer’s singular merit lies in his content which is so unusual, so startling, as to grip the mind and shake its foundations. . .He deals with simple, even commonplace subjects which have been abused again and again. Only, he brings fresh impact to their understanding."
—Gordon Sherman, Chairman of the Board, California School of Professional Psychology
