Hello.  This site has been set up in response to the feedback Eddy has been getting from readers around the world since The Buddha, Geoff and Me was published.  You'll find news about the book, a guest book to leave messages, and a forum for online discussions.

Hope you enjoy it!

Ed is having a hard time - at work, in his love life and, well, generally. Then he meets an unlikely Buddhist - who drinks and smokes and talks his kind of language. Bit by bit, things begin to change... Ed doesn't always take Geoff's advice. Or, when he does he lapses at the crucial moment. His path to understanding is not a straight one, especially as life keeps throwing more and more 'stuff' at him. Often he fails - like most of us, in fact. But sometimes he manages to get it right. And when he does, surprising things begin to happen.

An absorbing story of everyday city life, where the characters stand out with all their human strengths and weaknesses, and the ending brings Ed - and perhaps all of us? - a hope we didn't necessarily expect.

The Buddha, Geoff and Me - for anyone who's ever begun to wonder what the whole damn thing is all about...

Some reactions from readers:

  • 'WOW! A book hasn't hit me like that in years. I didn't want it to finish.' 

  • 'I was moved to laughter and tears - it's bursting with accessibility, energy, warmth and (profane!) profundity!!'   

  • 'A life-changing book.' 

  • 'Your book has changed how I live my life for the better.' 

  • 'A truly inspiring story.' 

  • 'It has left me feeling, positive, refreshed and actually quite happy! All this, and I think I might even have swine flu!'
