Praise and Reviews
KIRKUS BOOK REVIEW
A holistic look at the intersection of the spiritual and scientific world, playfully cast as a primer for a final exam.
In this engaging, enormously readable debut work of nonfiction, Otero urges his readers to "delve deeper into the concept of life as a prison created by our own mind,". Its well-designed layout includes highlighted passages and eye-catching marginal illustrations. The author presents many explanations with a wry, tongue-in-cheek bemusement.

"His first book, Spirituality 101: For the Dropouts of the School of Life, Dr. Figueroa-Otero not only dares to answer timeless questions about our spiritual nature, but humbly presents a guide to self-understanding while closing the apparent gap between the religious and scientific vision with an eclectic and original delivery."

"Dr. Figueroa is an exceptionally intelligent and creative author. He has put together an intriguing and clever study guide to help the soul-weary find peace and contentment in this worldly life.   Figueroa concisely points out the impediments to human contentedness in day-to-day life, which involve a look at man's responsibility in understanding his relationship with humanity and God. I loved the author's likening of any given person placed as colors in a painting or notes in a musical score.
 
Judge, 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards.
"Spirituality 101 is a book for people that want to have a better
understanding of the world they live in. It is a book about life and how us
humans can reconcile the apparent discrepancies in trying to understand life
through either science or religion. No matter your religious beliefs, this book
teaches you how to live la balanced life within this existential paradox. The
author arrives at this reconciliation with school lessons formats to be applied
in The School Of Life."
—Samantha Rivera, Reader's Favorite

"An immediate best-seller and with great reader's reviews, the book is a
Finalist in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards. 'Your book truly
embodies the excellence that this award was created to celebrate, and we
salute you and your fine work.'"
—National Indie Review
