a college level term paper requirement, I would have failed her. It is painfully repetitive, lacking innovation or fresh perspective. The material and standard could not have been any more transparent in the great body of work by Eckart Tolle. She credits him of course, then proceeds to restate his work: Quite astonishing.
If you have no 'agenda', i.e. if you are open, repeated reading or listening will reveal deeper meaning, greater significance. If you think not, do it then, just to prove you are right.
The very long human history of retarding and destroying discoveries is objectively documented by many. Evidence in fascinating detail: "The Mind and the Brain" provides an insiders experience of a scientific revolution and the human causalities perpetrated by scholar denialism. One isn't required to have formulated a 'better' model before revealing the intellectual corruption of the existing one. Humans suffer and die when the various but small 'information mafia' succeed. This work points to objective data/findings from which rational and I would add, obvious arguments are made.
Arthur Morey's delivery is most agreeable for me. In fact, the best I've experienced so far.
The Scholars Holocaust
Do not permit any reviewer to pursuade you that this work has anything whatever to do with religion or your constructs of it. I would say, one who suggests so has (a) not read the book or (b) has made 'enemy' with what is, and conjured supporting attributes upon it.
I have and I will.

With self respect, remarkable candor, and clarity, Woz shares an historical recount that is unassailable on grounds of his contributions, and his character. The path of least resistance for a person like him is to answer the passion born from his outlying engineering IQ. As this unfolds, other important skills go underdeveloped. He does not attempt to hide or distort this fact. He also does not claim he can't do it, rather he makes it very clear it's just not his thing.
I learned about the integrity and character of the story teller by his unpacking of his story vs first and second hand promotion which, obviously is effective right? He got sacrificed pretty bad on more than one occasion because well, he's got some really significant blind spots that probably would not exist if it were not for heavy duty compensation from his strengths. Amazingly, amazingly it's all good though, learning moments, keep it light, and keep moving forward, "still I had a lot of fun and I would do it again because I love this stuff" , referring to programming, concerts, and so on.
I love this guys attitude. I relate to how he thinks, deeply.
a. If described as a contrast of consciousness and claimed consciousness; can you perceive the dissonance? I would have been much better informed PRIOR to purchase.
Absolutely yes to Tolle. Absolutely NO to Dyer.
There's no point. This was a gift of no value. Ayn Rand might say, "My work is me, the closest you'll get short of a mind meld."
Ayn Rand's work must be read directly if one wishes to know Ayn Rand. Even if an authors intention is good and true, then at best the product is the unintended consequence of second mind interpretations.
