I enjoyed every bit of this book. It gave me a great insight in to will power both physiologically and psychologically. I found myself regularly staying... "I do that". It also came with helpful tips on how to develop your will power. I'll be dipping in to this book regularly to develop my own willpower. I definitely recommend this book.
I bought this book because of the great reviews but unfortunately I didn't get much out of it. If you have not read any other books of this genre then it may appeal to you but much of the material has been addressed already in a more substantial, mature way by other authors (Tolle, Chopra). I found this book to be very, very repetitive and at times felt like yeling out "I get the point'. I also found it to be quite immature in it's examples and logic for example: "Do you think God likes to be around people who are happy or people that are miserable" Imagine you are God and you pop down to earth and ask the first person you see, do you like it here?
So overall I would not recommend this book.
I enjoyed the story and in particular the narrator, Caroline Lee however I have listened to two other Kate Morton books and found this one to be very similar, so much so I could predict a lot of the story. If you are a big Kate Morton fan then you will probably love it. For me however the formula of a big secret a long time ago that a current day child has to investigate and unravel is a little warn.
Hmmm didn't really like this book. It contained information I have read in other books and didn't offer anything new. They offered explanations for a number of different things such as the Kennedy & Lincoln coincidences and then write them off completely by saying look at all the things that aren't the same. Whilst this is true, it still doesn't alter the fact that there in many cases (not necessarily this one) there are unusual coincidences. On top of that I found it to be patronising and I really couldn't stand hearing the smug... "but you are not so smart"
I like to think of myself as a rational person and consumer who makes informed decisions. This book highlighted to me how easily I am swayed by factors I was not even aware of. I've found ways to incorporate the information in this book into both my life and my business. I enjoyed the book and recommend it.
I really enjoyed this book and got alot out of it. It would have to be the first self help type book I have read where the author shares her stories thereby clearing making her point about us all being imperfect. I liked how the book contained her thoughts but also research that has been conducted. I would recommend everyone read this book.
I found the content in this book interesting, but confess I didn't finish it. The downside to me was that the mediations are including in the general narration so it made it pretty much impossible to find them again after the fact. It would have liked them to be perhaps a separate chapter on their own.
I really enjoyed this book and got a lot out of it both on a personal level and on a professional level. All the things in the book seem to make sense to me and I know look at ways I can adopt their suggestions to help manage change. I nearly didn't buy the book because of all the comments about the poor narration but although he wasn't the best narrator I didn't find it detracted at all from the book. I would definitely recommend reading this book.
I didn't find alot of useful information in this book. I only finished it two days ago but already I've forgotten most of it. I would have liked some clear steps to follow, maybe at the end of each chapter (yes I know she does outline them in one go). The blurb about the book says "If you suffer about your relationship with food - you eat too much or too little, think about what you will eat constantly or try not to think about it at all - you can be free. Just look down at your plate. The answers are there" If you are expecting the book to tell you how to look at your plate and work out how you are feeling by what's on it, you won't find that here.
Honest, inspiring, funny
I loved the way he captured exactly what it is like in Nepal and how he appeared to be completely honest about his feelings and motivation.
No but I always like the author reading their own work and I thought his performance was excellent.
I laughed out loud in parts and shed a tear as well. It was a moving story but light hearted at the same time.
This was a great story and I enjoyed every minute of it.
