Always an avid reader, I discovered Stan Law through friends on Smashwords. I've been reading his works ever since. I love his approach which researches the Human Potential. I am about to enter the realm of the books Stanislaw Kapuscinski. I strongly suspect I'll like his non-fiction just as much.

Smashwords book reviews by Barbara Woolfe
- Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism
on Feb. 20, 2012
I have been afraid that this would turn out yet another attempt at conversion into one of the established religions. Not so. Mr. Kapuscinski provides us with dispassionate, calmly objective information necessary for us, all of us, to draw our own conclusions, to make our own decisions. The Dictionary is a truly mature document with fascinating consequences.
I’ve spent innumerable hours picking passages from the Bible, at random, and applying the principles of the Dictionary to the text. The results were often stunning. Secrets of the ancients unfolded before my eyes.
Thank you Mr. Kapuscinski.
- DELUSIONS — Pragmatic Realism
on March 08, 2012
It has been a while since anyone dared to scold the sacred altars of science. Yet, it seems, the scientists have taken liberties with our credulity without being called to account for the nonsense they so often propagate. It seems that the scientists, and only they, have to right to propose ‘theoretical theories’, which within years are turned on their heads without so much as an apology. Most of the stuff I’ve been taught in school is now ‘scientifically passé’.
That, on the other hand, cannot be said of religions. In fact, the farther back we go, the closer we seem to get to the truth.
A fascinating book!
- Wall — Love, Sex and Immortality [Aquarius Trilogy Book One]
on March 16, 2012
When I first read Stan Law, some of the stuff he writes about sounded to me a bit like mumbo-jumbo. Now, that I read more of his books, his ideas take on a reality of their own, they sweep me along onto their magic carpet, and I accept Law’s world as my own. I don’t quite know how he does it, but either he’s a brilliant writer, or his reality really is real.
I read some passages again. He is a brilliant writer!
- Yeshua - Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus
on April 18, 2012
The solution to the enigma of the Missing Years has been attempted by a number of authors. This particular novel is by far the most interesting, in as much as it not only fills in the great unknown, but gives a logical and convincing reasons for the choices which Yeshûa made in his life, and even the consequences which ensued from them. It is evident that Stan Law did extensive research before embarking on solving the mystery of the ages. And yet, in spite of the deep metaphysical insights offered, the novel reads like an adventure story. Quite extraordinary.
My congratulations to Mr. Law.
- One Just Man [Winston Trilogy Book I]
on June 11, 2012
I couldn’t put the book down. The story swept me along, without letting up. Mystery, emotions, suspense, and most of all Stan Law’s forte: his passion for visionary metaphysics; not to the exclusion of physical life, but expanding it to a fascinating reality.
But what really got me going was that the moment I finished One Just Man, Elohim—Masters and Minions, and Winston’s Kingdom of the Winston Trilogy were already waiting for me. I didn’t miss a single day, but continued reading. You just can’t beat that!
- Now - Being and Becoming
on Nov. 02, 2012
It would be difficult to read NOW and not be reassured about one’s own immortality. At the same time, I don’t believe many people would imagine it being quite as Stan Law proposes. A man enters a coma. Within this enigmatic state he gains access to the total history of the world. Not just his own but all of it. And the strange thing is that he experiences all the fragments of history as though they took place just now.
An amazing book!
- Peter and Paul
on Nov. 27, 2012
I am still amazed how Stan Law managed to unfold history before my eyes. Love, hate, murder, mystery, tension, philosophy and metaphysics are all mixed in a cauldron of a fast paced novel that kept me reading into the early hours. The characters are as real: strong yet with human weaknesses; very human, yet rising head and shoulders above the others. Well, above most of us.
PS. The novel is worthy successor to Law’s Yeshûa—Personal Memoir. If you liked one, you’ll love the other. I did!
- Marvin Clark — In Search of Freedom
on Dec. 06, 2012
There are romances that make my stomach turn, those which specialize in explicit sex and vulgarity, normally called “erotica”, and then there are wonderful stories wherein a man and a woman find love that joins them together at so much more than just at physical level. Marvin and Jocelyn are just such a couple, who discover a unity which take them to an altogether different level of happiness. I you want to laugh and cry and feel their feeling, read this book. You won’t regret it.
- Alexander [Alexander Trilogy Book Two]
on May 11, 2013
Mystery takes on a different meaning when confronted by past realities, past civilizations, which most of us deny ever existed. Kingdom of Mu, Atlantis, Lemuria all come alive in Alec’s mind. And then there are the echoes of his youth, whence the Princess demands her dues.
An extraordinary novel wherein the past the present and the future seem mixed in a reality that exists only in Alec’s head, yet comes alive on the pages we read.
Can’t wait for the final part of the Trilogy!
- Alec [Alexander Trilogy Book One]
on Oct. 30, 2013
What a delightful story! A young man coming of age, while his mother and father fulfill their dreams, and youthful fantasies. Shouldn’t we all be that lucky? And all this sprinkled with the unique Stan Law humor.
This is a must read for all parents and grandparents, in fact all adults who want to know what mysteries unfold in the coming of age teens’ heads. They’ll all be amazed! I know I was.
- Pluto Effect [Aquarius Trilogy Book Two]
on Dec. 04, 2013
If you read WALL - Love, Sex, and Immortality, then Pluto Effect is a must read. If you haven’t, read both! Ambrosia and Simon continue on their chosen paths, reaching ever higher results in their specialized fields. Simon seems to unravel the secrets of the Pluto Effect, while Ambrosia with her genius in particle physics enables them to escape its wrath.
Quite a twist from the relatively quiet Book One of the Trilogy, but a twist will not want to miss.
- The Gate - Things my Mother told me.
on Dec. 06, 2013
The book is a jewel among books dealing with old age. It offers food for thought, wisdom, love, tears, and laughter. If you feel you’ll ever reach an old age, or will look after a loved one who does, this book is a must read. It will help you along, and offer you hope.
Don’t miss this literary jewel
- OLYMPUS — Of Gods and Men [Aquarius Trilogy Book 3]
on Sep. 27, 2014
Anyone who read Wall—Love, Sex, and Immortality, followed by the Pluto Effect, was biting his or her nails while waiting for the conclusion of this out-worldly epic. The first two books raised my appetite so high that I doubted if the author, Stan I.S. Law, could rise to my expectations.
I needn’t have worried. He not only did, but managed to surpass them. OLYMPUS—of Gods and Men restructures the philosophy of life, restructures both morals and ethics, and in addition is highly entertaining. The author manages to mix life, love, religion, philosophy and ends up with Immortality, making the full circle to Book I of this astounding trilogy.
Bravo Mr. Law!
