5.0 étoiles sur 5 Major Accomplishments 24 juillet 2014
The Man Who Tapped The Secrets Of the Universe by Glen Clark tells the story of Walter Russell, a man of many accomplishments. Among some of the interesting details in this book:
Page 16: Despite not formally studying architecture,he was credited to have designed and build twenty million dollars worth of buildings in New York City such as: the Hotel des Artistes on West 67th street, the first Hotel Pierre occupying a whole Park Avenue between 48th and 49th Streets, Alwyn Court at 58th and Seventh Avenue, and the Gothic Studio opposite the Museum of Natural History on 79th street. Russell is also credited with the duplex studio apartment idea.
Page 17: He had been elected President of the Society of Arts and Sciences around the time that a medal was to be given out to Thomas Edison. He did a portrait sculpture for Thomas Edison and eventually portrait busts for other people stemming from the success of the Edison sculpture (page 18).
Walter Russell is also listed towards the end of the book as having been a guest at the White House, first as an official painter and then as an official sculptor.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An Important Man to Know About! 19 février 2002
Par Steve McCardell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I am always thrilled to come across small volumes that pack a great punch, because they are the kinds of treasures you can give as gifts without feeling that you've overwhelmed the recipient - after all, it seems very few of us have the time to read all the books our friends and family recommend. Golden Rule in mind, I like giving something that will take little of someone's time, but that will truly inspire or enlighten.
The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe is one of these short and sweet titles. It is a bibliographical account of a brilliant man of this century - one Walter Russell - who appears to have been sadly overlooked as someone we all should know. I'm not against us keeping stats on and remembering always the world's greatest athletes - sports seem an important part of our lives for what they represent. But when we remember every great athlete without remembering the greatest spiritual pioneers, I wonder about priorities.
So much can be learned from the life of Walter Russell, and I believe he is one man we could teach about in schools in order to exemplify spiritual principles without preaching and persuading. A life is a much more powerful example than any words, and as we look at Mr. Russell's life, we can perceive how a different approach can bestow such a very different result! Probably my favorite example from within the book is when it tells of Russell taking a summer job as a bellboy, and startling himself by refusing his first tip. Tips were the primary income for bellboys, and the only real reason to take the job ... one would think. When he came to grips with his action, he decided he would refuse all tips from that point on, yet would work harder and offer more service to the guests than anyone else. The results are astounding, as he won the hearts of all the guests, including many wealthy ones who returned their support in other ways.
This kind of living brought Mr. Russell into quite influential company, and he commanded the respect of all as he began dominating a number of fields - from the sciences to the arts - that he entered into. His early theories on the universe are today being confirmed. And how did he become so dominant? The answer is as simple as a spiritual experience, which awakened him to the simple principles of the universe. It is from these principles that all else is derived, and living from these principles meant great success for Walter Russell, as I believe it would for anyone living them.
This book is really just an introduction to Walter Russell's ideas and philosophy (as well as an excellent account of all that he accomplished). If you tackle this little and inexpensive volume (my edition is about 55 pages minus many pictures), you may well find yourself wanting to pursue what Russell himself wrote - and there is plenty to be found. This is a book to try out, and to give away to others!

This very small, short book is written in a sensational style that usually turns me off, but the subject -- Walter Russell -- is so exceptional that I could not help but overlook it. This is a man who was an architect of a building still standing in New York city, yet he never went to school past the 8th grade. He sculpted the Mark Twain Memorial, though he never studied art. He even created the Co-op system for housing in New York (but later denounced it as politicians and real estate developers caused the system to degenerate into the state it's in now). I love to pass this book around to friends -- they always appreciate it. I highly recommend this introduction to his highly unusual experiences, philosophy, and unique relationship with the Universe.

Despite its short length this little book is packed with useful and interesting information. You need to read it twice just to begin to take in the new concepts it presents. Walter Russell did a great deal for American Art & Science. He is one of the most understated men of history. May the knowledge of his accomplishments continue to grow and inspire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Spiritualy advanced human being 23 septembre 2010
Par John G. Alvarado - Publié sur Amazon.com
Seems that many have misunderstood this man.This was the quest (Glen Clark).
"All my life I have been looking for a man who has discovered the Universal Law which lies back of the sermon on the mount, and who conciously uses that law with full awarenes of its meaning, and full obedience to its principles."
"If I could find such a man,I though to myself, He would be so cosmiclly aware of the Light of God that he would know the Spiritual Cause of all Effect."
Clark was looking for a man who had achieved Cosmic Consciousness. This man would know God the Cause of all Effect. When Russell talks about the Light he is talking about God. In Hebrew Kabbalah it would be Ain Soph Aur or the Limitless Light! This man would understand how the Universe worked and would be able to do anything he desired to achieve. This is why he was able to excell in many different areas of knowledge. This is why it is important for you to know about this man!
Read his book "Atomic Suicide" to get the overall picture of his ideas. There are many other books for those on the Path of enlightment by Walter Russell. Do not listen to the fools that have belittled him for they are ignorant of the Truth! Frater J.A.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspirational 'Renaissance Man' speaks in vague terms 25 août 2006
Par Sid Wagner - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Until one learns to lose one's self he cannot find himself...The personal ego must be suppressed and replaced with the 'universal ego.' One must not be the part, one must be the whole." This is a quote from Russell, explaining his first law of success: humility.

"The Man Who Tapped The Secrets Of The Universe" houses many inspirational, but paradoxical, zen-like statements as above.

The writer, Glenn Clark asks Russell: "Tell me how you acquired your scientific knowledge." Russell replies: "It is because I always looked for the CAUSE behind things and didn't fritter away my time analyzing EFFECTS...ALL KNOWLEDGE EXISTS as CAUSE. And it is simple. It is limited to LIGHT of MIND and the electric wave of motion which records God's thinking in matter."

You follow this? See, according to Russell, the universe consists of nothing but light. There are a total of nine oscillations (wavelengths) of light which create all known matter. To be a genius, all you need to do is become one with Nature (i.e. realize you are nothing but light), and she will then whisper all her secrets in your ear.

Walter Russell is the first author to use the term "New Age" and a lot of his thinking seems to anticipate many modern-day 'New Age' philosophies. His overwhelmingly positive outlook reminds me very much of Dr. Wayne Dyer.

The brief length of this book does not even remotely do Russell justice - or, should I say, it doesn't even remotely answer the questions I have about this man. Here's a guy, who started out when he was ten years old with his first job as a church organist. He worked as a musician to pay his way through art school. And then became an architect! How did he do this?!

Russell says he never works at anything for longer than two hours. This keeps his mind fresh. As soon as the two hours is over - he moves on to another project. If you follow this habit, you can accomplish the work of five lifetimes, and never experience fatigue.

"The Man Who Tapped The Secrets Of The Universe" is not a standard biography. No concrete timeline of Russell's life is ever given. Author Glenn Clark merely impresses us with a list of all the famous people who've crossed paths with Russell. (Thomas Edison, Rudyard Kipling, George Bernard Shaw, Charles Kettering, Franklin Delano Roosevelt - just to name a few.) How did he meet all these people? Through shrewd networking of course. But you have to read between the lines to figure that one out. Befriending rich customers when he served as a bellboy, helped. Hanging out at the riding club in Oyster Bay resulted in his meeting local resident, Theodore Roosevelt.

The book, centers on Russell's philosophy instead of his life story (it includes instructive chapters, such as 'The Five Laws of Success') - and ends with a 'deferred' preface, in which Clark writes "the only adequate preparation for the reading of this book is the reading of this book."

Confused? So am I. But, despite the confusion, Clark's brief visit to Russell's Carnegie Hall art studio sure is a blast. It's like meeting a rich, lovable, eccentric uncle who has all the knowledge of the universe at his fingertips. He kindly shows you his notebooks, but it's in a language you can't understand.
