Reviews for Confessions of an Ethical Drug Dealer.

This book has rather blown me away. It’s the best thing I’ve read in quite a while. Confessions is full of wonderful anecdotes and some truly eye-opening philosophy. I know that many people will love reading it.”

Our editorial board can confidently state that your manuscript was found to be both powerful and entertaining. Your assured writing style is incredibly emotive and is sure to evoke a strong sense of empathy with readers.

– Board of Editors at Austin Macauley Publishers, New York.

“This book is Jimi’s homage to the psychedelic experience, a love letter to psychoactive drugs, and an entertaining account of how drugs fuelled his life long quest for rationality and a proper cup of tea. I thoroughly enjoyed the read, as a memoir and a manual for better living.”

– Greg Cummings, Author of ‘Gorillaland’ and ‘Pirates.

“Confessions,” is one of my favourite books. I compare it to Henry Miller’s Paris and George Orwell’s Down and Out. One day it will be studied like a Rosetta Stone to our times.

– Howie Siegel, Producer and Actor.

– Trina Woods, Writer and Therapist.

Reviews for The End of Everything

“The End of Everything is thought provoking and original in tone, concept and content. When writing forces you to stop and think, the writer has done their job.”

– Taylor Damron, Office of Sloan Harris, CAA, Creative Artists Agency.

“This book, The End of Everything, and Jimi Fritz deserves to be listed with the legends of literature. So much more than a story about a trapped soul in a broken system, it touches into the very essence of what it means to be human, with a palette of language rarely seen.”

– Amazon.ca review

“A refreshing literary experience.”

A great read discussing an important topic with comedy and wit.

“Would definitely recommend The End of Everything. I read this book twice and got more out of it the second time around. Jimi’s insights about an important topic that is not discussed enough is fabulous – and he does it with comedy, style and wit. I’ve bought this book and his previous works for others in my life as I think they are important reads that question status quo and provide a different perspective that can challenge ones thinking and understanding.”

– Amazon review

The End of Everything is superb. I am beyond impressed with Jimi Fritz’s writing. It’s so encouraging to encounter excellence when now the default setting in so many fields is mediocrity. 

– Dakota Hamilton and Lucky the dog.

“If you are weary of reading time-wasting genre story books about romance and history, check out The End of Everything by Jimi Fritz.”

– Fyodor Dostoyevsky
