I would recommend this to friends because it summarizes the roots of the occult in America.
I saw the roots of what is now the occult. I also learned details that I had not know before.
I was curious to hear about the darker side of the occult as I know its out there and most likely related to what was discuss. I know there is a whole practice related to Aliester Crowley, which is only mentioned in passing in this book several times. There are other occult practices that have large followings as well that were not discussed and, again, most likely come out of what was discussed.
It ranks among the most unique to present a controversial topic in an authentic manner backing it up with science and experiential information.
The Secret and other type of books that endeavor to help people connect, but lead pretty much to "wishful thinking." "Dying to be Me" is different...I think it really comes closer than these other books to the key to this connection and releasing ourselves from disease and turmoil.
I believe this is her first. : )
There were many in terms how she said things and feeling within myself my own healing.
I found the information enjoyable and interesting. It help me further complement knowledge for my comprehensive exams in clinical psychology doctorate.
I get more out of listening to books then reading them. This book, however, needs more complete online reference as to which great psychology greats were discussed. Audible is weak on providing necessary material that should accompany a book.
I listened to this book two years ago. It is for both adults and children. Other reviews say that the book is written for children. I disagree because I don't believe children will know the historical facts and figures in the story. It is actually for adults who once believed in Santa Claus. I believe the book gives the illusion that Santa is alive and well in a veil of truth and magic.
