I love learning about new things, theories and history by way of audible. I like reading actual books for fiction :)
I originally bought this book some time ago but didn't get that far into it before the author lost credibility with me. The challenge I faced with it, was that the intro is Esther Hicks explanation as to how she came up with all of this: She's channeling a being called "Abraham" ...
For me personally.... I like theories, and that is what the law of attraction is, a theory... that are based on research, studies, naturalistic observation.. life experience (which ok, it does mention in the book), or whatever... but I just need more down to earth stuff to back this up - which is available in other books and dvd's. Whereas this really is just, Abraham says this... so this is so...
Take away that hocus pocus and it does make sense. For example.... I don't believe in god/ jesus (and the story behind it) But when you look at the ten commandments, they are all very good principals to live by for a variety of reasons, not just because God said so.
The narration in this book by Jerry is quick, it's as though he doesn't stop for punctuation.
If you can get past that, and just take in what they say about the law of attraction, I think everyone would benefit... If you're still rattled by the whole channeling of Abraham thing, look for other books on the Law of Attraction to compliment this one.
A while back I read "The Secret" and found it very interesting. Since then, I have been looking into the concept of the law of attraction more and more. I find it to be true. I think this book has a lot of interesting suggestions.

If you are interested in these kind of books I would recommend something else instead. The Hicks info is nothing new. If you want a better book which is more facinating, provocative and helful and one that will really alter your perspective on life and what life is I would recommend two authors - Jane Roberts "The Seth Books" and Kenneth George Mills. Jerry Hicks claims passion about what his wife is channeling but I have never heard such a boring narrator and a voice lacking in passion. They also talk about the special use of their language. Theiir language is nothing special. If you want High info then listen or read Kenneth G. Mills - he is the only "channeler" that uses very high language and in so doing is able to communicate very high truths. The Hicks are regular, nothing special and I had to stop listening it was so bad.
This book is pseudo science. Don't get it if you expect anything real. Too bad, from the good reviews I was hoping for an interesting helpful book. However, the author ignores the scientific method and repeats his statements over and over again, appearently in the hope that something becomes true if you just say it often enough.
