I would listen to this book every morning on the train into work, I found that it put me in a positive state of mind. I listened to the book twice and found I took away different things both times
I recommend this book
I really liked this and I really like the way Dr Dyer speaks.
it is a very positive lecture and this being my first encounter with Dyer, am impressed enough to now buy his "10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace..." book.
i dont have his "extra mile..." one, so will not be risking purchasing the same material twice, as another reviewer has said. im really looking forward to it. : )
It is definitely a great book but in order to really understand the concepts expressed by the author you should approach it the right way. I mean that if you experienced some of the things described by the author, like intuition, etc. in that case you can better grasp the profound concepts conveyed by Dr. Wayne otherwise if you have a big ego you cannot gather anything.
I bought this book because of the high ratings and recommendations from other readers. I was sadly disappointed. If you're used to Amazon and the serendipity of finding a good book based on others opinions, you'll be surprised to find out that this is an unscripted mass of psycho-babble. Think 'intention' EQUALS 'the secret power & energy of the universe' EQUALS God and you have all you need to know.
I find it very disturbing that so many people rated this book so highly. Either there is a small cult at work here, or general standards of value and merit are seriously warped when it comes to self-help books. You've been warned - save the book credit.
I totally agree with the reviewer who said she was surprised at the high rating! If you want to know the *truths* behind Dyer's books, read Deepak Chopra - that's where he got everything anyway. And Chopra isn't such a stuck on himself namedropper. I spent money to hear how spiritual Wayne Dyer is and all the celebrities he's friends with... No more!
"Don't take prescription drugs he says." Then later "So I was at the store picking up a prescription for my son...". UG. On the good side he has some interesting stories about life which were thought provoking. Here and there I was able to pick up something that was interesting. But most of the book seemed like the author was someone that was unable to grasp that he even existed. He sounds amazed that he is even alive. "Just spread love and joy and everything is ok". Thats the type of book this is. "how would I solve the problems of the middle east? Well I would encircle the place with as many people as possible sending out loving thoughts to everyone. Now how could anyone be mad with such overflowing love?". Ok if you think that is a logical solution to a 3000 year old religious conflit then this is the book for you.
Wayne Dyer is my new best friend. Not only is his written word inspiring, but I love listening to him. He has such passion for what he speaks of. This book is truly inspirational.
When an author tells itself in his book that if you do not believe what is written in the book, than it is due to your ego... Well this is a sentence that sounds everything but scientific!
According to me this is more manipulation than information!
"If you are truly connected to your source, then the power of intention is infinite and whatever you will want this will happen". This sentence contains itself its own limitation and this is impossible to prove! Just take the contra-positive of this sentence: "If you do not get what you want this means that you were not truly connected to your source." And Wayne is going further by saying that the problem is then due to the ego.
1° False: ego is not something that we should fight. Ego is the power of every human being.
2° Dangerous: what has to think all the people having a deadly disease? That they deserve it? This is stupid. And what about a child being smashed in public? Do you think this child wanted this? Do you think all the people seeing the scene wanted this? And what about all these forces joined together that didn't prevent this? It is dangerous to think that you can change the weather just by wanting it! This is just not serious!
I really do not understand how such a guy has been teacher in an university... or was it truly an university?
"Feeling good" = "feeling god"! Damned! I think that Wayne is confusing preaching with teaching! By the way how do you explain this in other languages? This is stupid.
Now beside all these "mambo jambo" thoughts the overall message of Wayne is a message of peace and love. And this is great. He is such charismatic with such a voice… Great!
But do not take all he says for reality! This is a nice fairy tale for adult. Who do not wish to think that the intention comprise all the needed power to get everything you need and want? But this is not true! To be awaken is not to be taken as to be naive! Personal development needs to be attentive and to be proven, not to believe!
Do not take me wrong: this production is great! It is a great… fairy tale!
