Lucidity in Sin City: A Mystical Journey to Clarity and Serenity

edited by FirstEditing.com

Author’s review

I am very pleased with your company and especially my editor, Toni. Based on Toni's suggestions in connection with her review of my sample, I went ahead and purchased your Level 2 Technical Editing service. Toni then reviewed my entire 72,000-word manuscript, including the footnotes and bibliography. She was very thorough, and she completed her review in only 10 days.

A short introduction

Prepare for a mystical and metaphysical journey. This book ponders the meaning of life and the nature of reality, as Jay Troska describes his experiences—the good, the bad, and the ugly—during his residency in Las Vegas over a twenty-six-year period, including a surreal and mystical moment of clarity so powerful that it led him to drastically reduce his work hours and smell the roses of life.

Troska also ponders consciousness, the phenomenon of déjà vu, dreams, the concept of eternal recurrence, and those meaningful coincidences in life that Dr. Carl Jung referred to as synchronicities.
