A Must Read Handbook for Life
Rob's book is deeply inspiring for anyone who is brave enough to read it. Your old lens that you perceived the world through will no longer be relevant. This is not a self help book but it is one of the best self help books that I have come across. This was also not written as a religious book & yet God speaks to the readers in an undeniable way. Rob is a gifted storyteller with relatable characters making the book easy to read and hard to put down. M. Cramer
"While particle physicists investigate the mysteries of the dark matter that gives the universe its shape and four dimensions, in Is it God or Coincidence?, Ekno unravels the mysteries of bright matter that give human life in that universe it's meaning and purpose in a dimension beyond the knowable. From the abyss of despair to the mountaintop of euphoria, the tiny miracles that turn the pages of Ekno's life hold him spellbound and, in their telling, open our eyes a little wider to the ineffable grace all around us and lands this little book on a shelf with noteable precursors, such as Dan Wakefield's Returning, and Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations with God.

Well-Written Page-Turner of a Book!
I absolutely loved this book. So many of us live the way he does, listening for, looking for and finding signs from God that we try to follow. It is so refreshing that Mr. Ekno wrote down his experiences in this regard for us to enjoy. I often find it difficult to tell people about these experiences, because they sometimes scoff. So I admire his courage and willingness to share. And this book will help me be more courageous in sharing. The stories he tells are super interesting and enjoyable., even the ones that were difficult for him. I want a sequel! There is clearly more to come in the life of this talented person. Paige Bridges
A Must Read For Those Who Don't and Do Believe
It's often hard to look at something without a biased set of optics. That being said, I felt I was going to be able to relate to Rob's story before I read a single page. Even with my own Christian faith, gift of sobriety and some knowledge of the Alaska frontier, I was not prepared for the amazing journey Rob rook me on during various chapters of this book. The journey he narrates is not only indicative of his commitment to excellent story telling, but what is truly the greatest gift anyone can share. The love of Jesus Christ. VP
Life is What Happens When You Are Busy Making Other Plans
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book...breezed through it. It was an easy, pleasurable read. We join Rob, the author, a regular American guy, on a philosophical and spiritual quest for the meaning of life. His often painful story takes place against the backdrop of 20th and 21st century America through the splendor of the breathtaking Alaskan landscape, and back again. My heart was touched , tears flowed, and I was comforted as I identified with the feelings of our often confounding human experience, the twists, turns, the joys, unknowns, and the mystical wonders that will appear before us when we are open and willing to see them. Rob reminds us to go within, slow down, look for the light and smell the roses so to speak...so that we might just experience something wonderful, a cool thing called a "God-shot." CHARMED
OMG! (no pun intended)
I bought this book to support the author, who is a friend. Thought it would be sweet and worth reading, which it is, but never expected to LOVE it! Full of happy tear moments and Joy! Once I began, I could not stop reading until I finished! Just what I needed, without realizing that I even needed anything! Thank you Rob!"
WOW! Inspiring & Gripping!
I don't normally write reviews for anything/anywhere, however, after reading this book I was so VERY touched and totally inspired with Rob's story AND writing style. I am one of those VERY picky readers and really need the content to hold my attention, and this book did exactly THAT! The content and writing style in this book is so very relatable. i couldn't put the book down! I laughed 'out loud' and frequently had a tear in my eye, as well. This book is a must read for Believers AND Nonbelievers alike. Thanks,Rob!
