    A Course in Miracles, also known as "the Course" or ACIM, was scribed by Dr. Helen Schucman. It is a self-study course that aims to assist listeners, readers, and students in achieving spiritual transformation. Book 1: Text is largely theoretical, and sets forth the concepts on which the Course's thought system is based. Its ideas contain the foundation for the lessons in Book 2, the Workbook for Students.

    Lea says: "Course Students will adore."

    Story

    For the Biblically-oriented, the course is the clearest explanation that I have come across of how to actually live and obtain the promises of the Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew5:1-12; Luke6:20-49) - Jesus' greatest sermon about our human spiritual needs for self-actualization. For example, becoming “clean of heart” so that we will see God can be understood by studying the course as "forgiving all the errors in our beliefs and others', so that we will perceive the world rightly without judgement'. The course clearly aims to go well beyond activating aspects of our higher self in order to live an enlightened life, to becoming fully-aware children of God living in conscious union with Him; from living at 0.01%.of our abilities to 100% - incapable of fear or lack.

    I couldn't fit the course into any single religion - Orthodox Christianity, New Age (Gnostic, Christian Science, etc.) or Eastern (Buddhism, Hinduism). While there were elements of similarity, the need of any one religion to differentiate itself from another introduces traditions and cultures which then distracts from the message. The course content is what some of the nondualistic religions would probably communicate without their exoteric variations. Unfortunately, religious traditions make it difficult for a 'believer of a religion' who has committed faith into it to be open-minded - at least until a circumstance in their lives force them to open their minds to truth.

    For any seeker of truth and self-actualization, the truth in the course is self-evident and outlines the path to a very high level of transcendent enlightenment which unlike many paths, is undiluted by any tradition keepers egos.

    This is without a doubt, the second most important book I have ever read (alongside the Bible inclusive, despite all its re-written history and missing gaps). I predict that it will be influential in ushering in an age of long-lasting peace and abundance.

    I hope this helps any careful Truth-seeker (Christians inclusive).

    Spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer explores the question of human identity and shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and achieve happiness and self-realization.

    I recommend this book for anyone on the spiritual path.

    Having gone through many authors in my quest, I am pleased to find that Michael Singer communicates spiritual truth in such an easy-to-follow manner that anyone can relate to regardless of their faith.

    This is definitely a book that I will read again and again.

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    This book resolved my confusion about choosing between whole and processed wheat products - they're not much different! Once I took its advice and left out wheat from the menu altogether, I saw my weight gain stop and reverse soon afterwards. It's incredible!! Don't just read the book, try it for a couple of months and see for yourself.

    Innovation may be the hottest discipline around today - in business circles and beyond. And for good reason. Innovation transforms companies and markets. It’s the key to solving vexing social problems. And it makes or breaks professional careers. For all the enthusiasm the topic inspires, however, the practice of innovation remains stubbornly impenetrable. No longer. In The Little Black Book of Innovation, long-time innovation expert Scott D.

    Full of clear, implementable steps. I found the book to be extermely practical, different from the theoretical approach of most books on innovation. And I believe this was the exact intention of the author.
