Publisher's Summary

The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders.

Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas: how to instantly determine the truth or falsehood of any statement or supposed fact.

All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: morality, philosophy, psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from (philosophy, political theory, theology) all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness.

To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.

    "Fascinating and extremely educational"

    I only gave a 4 star, because of the narration. Of course it was awesome that the book was read by the author, however it was very hard to concentrate. Apart from that, it was briillant.

    Power VS Force is mostly about Kinesiology ( Muscle testing ), and it contains human consciousness and energy levels, power patterns and etc.
    For me, I was fascinated by his work and this book kind of educated me to see the world differently. From now on I am going to watch my emotions, actions, thoughts and decisions - as I will have to be responsible for every one of them eventually - and I will try not to drop my energy level to below 200. ( level 200 is Courage, according to the book.)
    I will also try to see the world, things,events, circumstances and people with the hightest possible consciousness level.

    "My first wasted credit"

    This audiobook taught me to read the reviews before I buy. The narration is difficult, but I kept an open mind and focused on the material instead of the voice. I made it to the three hour point and could go no further. I considered the book because it was referenced in Wayne Dyer's lecture on the "Power of Intention". It makes me doubt Dr. Dyer's choices of reference material.
    To use an old expression, it's a bunch of "hogwash".

    "Awesome"

    Carl G. Jung stated that "modern man needs a modern language to express religion and or spirituality." Dr. David R. Hawkins books, ( I have read all of them and would like to have them available on Audible )have come the closest to facilitating an understanding of Jung's statement.

    "Life Changing..."

    Okay... the author should not have done the audio for his own book. His reading is awful BUT this book is amazing! If audio is your only option for this book then bare with him and get it. I bought the hard copy too so I could read over chapters that were hard to listen to. This book is a MUST! Practice patience with the reader.

    "couldn't get past the first 10minutes"
    Would you try another book from Dr. David R. Hawkins and/or Dr. David R. Hawkins?

    Yes. I like his lectures, but I found this book incredibly dry and unlistenable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I couldn't make it to the end


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I suspect this may have been Dr. Hawkins first attempt at narrating? It sounded like a first grade reader being forced to read in front of his class. Halting and stiff.

    "Possibly the worst book I have listened to."
    What disappointed you about Power vs. Force?

    This book is mysticism portrayed as science. It is garbage.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dr. David R. Hawkins again?

    Never.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that I had wasted the time listening to this garbage.


    Any additional comments?

    If someone is considering listening to this book, I highly recommend anything else.

    "Good Message, Poorly delivered"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    David is a good author, but a lousey narrator. Unless its pitch black and there are no visual distractions, David is very, very hard to listen to! Having bought his audio cassett many years ago, if I had looked and seen he was the narrator, I would have never bought the book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    David provides many fine details about his core subject


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dr. David R. Hawkins?

    The same guy that Bryce Courtney uses. David has the same monotone, no infliction and toneality differences in his voice and a poor narrator


    Do you think Power vs. Force needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It does have a follow up book, An Eye for an Eye, I havent read it as yet


    Any additional comments?

    David, if you want ot sell more audio books, get someone else to Narrate!

    "Pseudoscience at its finest"

    This book begins by talking about how you can find the ultimate truth through a very special 'scientific' method: You have someone hold his arms up and try to push down on his arm. If you say something positive to him while you do this, he is stronger. If you say something negative, he is weaker. Now you can test out other things in the same way. From this the author extrapolates that the secrets of the universe are unfolded, all of us connected by a hidden consciousness, mystics, gurus, blah blah blah. Of course, all the scientific 'studies' he provides are vague and non-descript.

    This pseudoscience is reminiscent of the Scientologists who give an electromagnetic stress test and tell you all kinds of deep truths about your psyche. When someone tries to bring such deep and all-encompassing 'truths' through unverified simple biological tests, you know you should be skeptical.

    "Slurred speech - bad bad bad!"
    What would have made Power vs. Force better?

    Someone else reading it. It is boring - I kept listening but it is a waste of time.


    Has Power vs. Force turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Perhaps.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dr. David R. Hawkins?

    The lady who does the intro.


    Any additional comments?

    So hard to follow - so tired of buying these books that are no good but have good ratings!! Sigh....
