Laing wrote: "Mastery over form and catholic technique are staples in this poet's work, which is very accessible". Belizean writer Emory King contributed: "Your poems indicate a depth of thought and a way with words that is rare in this age of sound-bytes and digest opinions". The Reporter Press stated: "Every now and then, a Belizean writer produces a cerebral work that is so intellectually stimulating that it leaves one staring beyond the book and into space". Minister of Education, C. B. Hyde wrote on Ode to the One-Eyed Lady: "I have come to the conclusion that this is a great book, not because it is enjoyable and easy to read, although it is, but it is, perhaps, the best book ever written on the subject with which it deals". Dr. Anderson was the first medical student to be awarded the 'Use of English Prize' at the University of the West Indies. Dr. Anderson is married to Stephanie, née Gegg-Grange. They have four children, fourteen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Presently, they reside in Minnesota, U.S.A.
