The Soul of an Eagle by Edmond E. Frank is an inspirational book inspired by the author’s own life, a story with strong psychological and spiritual underpinnings. The author shares an experience of “near-death” or his metaphorical death. At the ICU and convinced that he was going to die, Jeff met Big D. It was when life appeared to be over for him that he met the Angel of Death. Big D had counseled him in the last few years, after he had begged for time. When this book begins, he has just had another accident and the first person he meets is Big D. Follow Jeff on a spiritual odyssey that will reveal the deep truths about life, love, and death.

This book reflects the fascinating story of the author’s experience with Death and it is also a book filled with powerful truths — the liberating truths about life. One of these truths is that death is not the end. It is the transformation of consciousness. It is an awakening into the deeper truth of who we are. Edmond E. Frank offers insights about love and shares Jeff’s experience with his wife; at the point of death, he discovers that his wife really doesn’t love him; she only uses him for security. The curious thing is that even though the protagonist feels unloved by the wife, he does not reciprocate the feeling.

The Soul of an Eagle entertains in many ways, filled with lessons that will teach readers the unconventional way of loving, the freedom to embrace their truth, and the courage to grow. I found myself pondering on the words in this book, following the characters as they uncover, layer after layer, our existential truth. Edmond E. Frank is a great storyteller who knows how to craft scenes and dialogues that are loaded with lessons for readers while keeping them fully engrossed.

The Soul of an Eagle is a work of non-fiction in the self-help genre. It is suitable for older readers and was penned by author Edmond E. Frank. The book is an autobiographical exercise from the author who tells the story of how a medical crisis in their youth led them to re-evaluate their relationships and their perception of those relationships. Through the exploration of their journey since a near-death experience, the author shares the wisdom learned throughout life. The joy that can be taken from pain, and the surprising places one can see the truth in the world.

Author Edmond E. Frank has delivered a highly engaging read that shares the author’s deeply personal experience of a transformational journey that they embarked upon. One of the things that I enjoyed the most about this book is Frank’s ability to use his own experiences to teach the reader about reflecting on their own experiences. The Soul of an Eagle is a raw and honest book that will lift your spirits and inspire you to make changes in your own life and the way you view it. Frank does a masterful job of delivering a thought-provoking memoir that demonstrates the emotional variance and unpredictability of going on a journey of self-discovery. This book is easy to connect with thanks to the narrative prowess and emotive writing used. I would not hesitate to recommend The Soul of an Eagle to fans of books that will uplift the soul and guide you to a happier place, and those looking to read a powerful and emotional story.

The Soul of an Eagle by Edmond E. Frank, the second part of a two-part memoir (the first one being Courage of a Butterfly) takes readers on a journey with the author as he gives glimpses of his life and his perception of life. The author, who lives by the laws of truth, shares a little of that truth with readers through this book. Though it is the author's story, the book is written partly as fiction with insights, experiences, and stories that will give readers details about his decision to live his life based on Spiritual Laws. The book will take readers on a journey of self-discovery and encourage them to look into themselves, and get to know themselves better and in a deeper way.

The Soul of an Eagle is honest and thought-provoking and will make readers ponder on the truths of life. They will be encouraged to fix their lives if they are broken, and it will make them look at life from a viewpoint they have never considered before. The book begins with Edmond E. Frank having a massive clot blocking the blood circulation in his lungs after injuring his right calf during a ski-tubing accident at Lake Powell. The author is very vocal when it comes to sharing his life story and thoughts, and his tools and techniques will work well for readers. The lesson given by the soul will motivate readers to find the truths of life, and discover their inner beauty. The memoir is interspersed with poems, which makes the book interesting to read. The quotes by Redneck Spirituality at the beginning of each chapter are indeed insightful, positive, and profound.
