Reviewed by Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite

CITY of NEW$ by Robert Harrison Woolston is a profound book which looks at the morals of today's city dwellers and their unending pursuit of material gain above their own morality. We follow Zeph on his four-day vacation to New York City. Zeph has a few strange, unexplained encounters, including a homeless man and a ghostly visit to his hotel by the philosopher Nietzsche. Each of them teaches Zeph an important life lesson, although he is unaware of this until the end of his trip. He ends his vacation with a clearer understanding of human nature and how the teachings of Nietzsche's pyramidal dominance hierarchy could be related to the 21st century way of life. The ethics of courage, self-control and humility are far more valuable than the trappings of money and status. By applying these values to your own life, you can maintain a true spiritual connection to God.

CITY of NEW$by Robert Harrison Woolston is not only thought-provoking but brutally honest about how people pursue wealth and money above everything else. I live a very simple life in the Bulgarian countryside and when I return to the UK I find the race for materialistic nonsense quite vulgar, so I agree with the sentiment and message of this book completely. It was extremely well written and I love the description of the city folk looking upwards not to see the beautiful sky, but the billboard advertisements. The greed and corruption of corporations was spot on, as was the statement that power and status are the ultimate prize, not health and happiness. A perfect book for those who tirelessly chase acceptance from their peers by spending the money they don’t have on people who don’t care.
