Tom Cladis’ fist great literary undertaking, How To Lift Cars Off Your Face And Other Tips For Living Forever, is more a guide to the soul than a simple compilation of the writer word. It takes the reader far beyond the “standard” thought process of literary analysis and forces one of the definitive questions of existence: How do I live my life? Do I allow myself to sit with sedentary gloom, never looking into my heart to see of what I am truly capable? Or, lie Cladis suggests, do I step beyond the lines of mental conformity, of human-generated boundaries, rules and regulations, to see where my life may go? Cladis’ contribution to his generation, and to the world, is this life-altering book. Through reading it, I was able to break through the shackles of confining fear, and learn that through God, I can choose to do ANYTHING…even lift cars off my face or live forever. Choice, as Tom Cladis explains, is God’s greatest gift, but it also has become one of our most restrictive entities. We choose to allow ourselves to strive for greater things, or we choose to accept limitations. Either way, the choice is up to us.

In my own life, Tom Cladis’s writing helped me to overcome the constant and unyielding pain of infertility. While my husband and I longed to conceive, we were unable to. However, after reading How To Lift Cars Off Your Face And Other Tips For Living Forever, I was able to let go of my fear of never having a child. I stopped the negative thought-processes that had already begun to run rampant, and I opened myself to the possibilities of the future. I did not accept failure, did not allow it to enter into my psyche, and., as a result, I was able to conceive…not only one baby, but two – at the same time!! My twins are now one-and-a-half, and I am fully aware of the fact that without reading Tom’s book, they may not be here at all. To him, I am forever indebted.

I have read The Purpose-Driven Life, and it is a wonderful book, but it is just kindergarten compared to your book. I'm reading your book for the second time, and it is like peeling an onion: I am discovering more and more incredible layers! You have to get the word out!


Hi Tom,

I'm in chapter 7 the Garden, and am being blessed by each page. You can't go fast because there is so much rich food, and it has to eaten slowly so you get all the nutrients. Thank you again for this wonderful gift.



My folks bought a copy of your book at your signing and sent it to me. I really cannot express what a godsend it was. I got the book just after my girlfriend of one year broke up with me, so, needless to say, I was an emotional wreck. She told me that it "wasn't me, it was her," and that she still wants to be friends. I have felt like my heart was ripped out and put through the shredder, twice.

While reading your book, I realized that I was not being as positive as I could be about my life. Yeah, the relationship aspect of my life wasn't going too well, but everything else is rockin'! I couldn't figure out exactly why I felt soo lost and alone. But as I read the final chapter, I realized that as you had said, I was focused on the wrong thing. I was tying soo much of my feeling of self-worth to my girlfriend (as you know, there is a major imbalance in the ratio of males to females in mountain towns), that when she left, I felt like so much of the last year was a waste.

Well, I have started praying again (I mean actually doing my cross and talking with God, in addition to continuing my old form of prayer, playing on the mountains). I am still having a hard time with the whole breakup thing, but I feel a new presence in my life - God telling me that "Hey, Chris, it'll be ok. You are the master of your world and can do whatever you decide to. I love you!"

My "mustard seed" of faith is planted, and daily I feel the presence of God more strongly in my life. Thank-you for sharing your thoughts through your book. I feel blessed to have God and people like you (and my friends and family) in my life. Take care and God bless.


Hi Tom!

Every time I read your book, I am left with more clarity, deeper understanding and a sense of gratitude. I am thoroughly enjoying every word.


The first twenty pages were the most intriguing of any book I've ever read!



Your book is life-altering!
