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.

    "Must read!"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book did in fact make me cry. It was the collection of information within this book that solidified what I've been growing to understand about our ultimate purpose and how our most essential thoughts contribute to the collective consciousness. It rang so true to me, and it was written. From a metaphysical scientific perspective. I'm so happy this information was all contained within a book and made available to us. Religious or no, energy interacts as energy does, per universal law. This book explains what that means on an inter-personal level.

    "Great Book - but don't let him read his own work"
    Would you listen to Power vs. Force again? Why?

    OK here's the thing...I LOVE the book. But I can't listen to more than a few minutes. Please DO yes yes record his other books...but hire a narrator. His voice has a soporific effect on me even though I am VERY interestd.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Power vs. Force?

    The ways to verify truth so objectively and accurately are priceless!


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

    I don't know the readers well enough to say, but definitely NOT the author. Sorry! I have HUGE respect for the author!


    Any additional comments?

    I really want his other books to be available on Audible so I can read them. I'm mostly blind and print isn't an easy option for me.

    "A seed Planted of Understanding"

    Brilliant, complicated, scientific yet somehow the true self while listening has an understanding even if the mind fully cant seem to comprehend it. I learned so much and am so thankful for being given the ears and eyes to hear and see the unseen in understanding. I need to listen again, This is one of those books you have to listen to a couple of times, and I usually never listen to a book a second time. Wonderful, I am thankful

    "Horrible narration"

    Dr. Hawkins has done himself and his book a disservice by also narrating. His droning voice would not let me continue listening to the material. This book was recommended in books and tapes by Dr. Wayne Dyer. I read the reviews that complained of the narration, but I thought with the interesting material, I could get through it. Sadly, I could not make it through. I wish I could contact the author or his people and suggest that the book be professionally read. He would reach a greater audience as I'm sure the material is very worthwhile.

    "Interesting topic marred by awful presentation."

    Dr Hawkins presents a very reasoned and structured set of beliefs based on the premise that applied kinesiology can be used to determine the truth or falsehood of any statement.

    While the topic is interesting, the presentation is very dry and the author/narrator is essentially unskilled at enunciation or diction. The material is presented in near monotone, with words running together and sentences interrupted for audible gasps for air.

    My perception is that this book would be better experienced in book format so that the content would not be obscured by the faulty presentation.

    "Power vs Force"

    Beautifully written and important book. What a shame that the author felt compelled to do the narration. Brilliant man but absolutely horrible book reader. At times it sounded like he was putting himself to sleep! Put your money...and your time in the book, not the narration

    "It is a MUST"

    It is just a MUST read book. Perfect marriage of science and spirituality.
    Still, no words would have enough power to describe its worth. When you listen it, you understand why.

    "Same old stuff"

    When I read the description, the book seemed exciting and new. It’s basically regurgitated spiritual stuff with scoring system to measure belief systems, documents and personalities. Churchill gets a pretty high score… I guess the author is unaware of colonial atrocities but the bad part is the sprinkle of opinionated segments containing ignorance and hate that have no reference or basis. I really wasted my money.

    "Eye Opener for Ideomotor Response"

    This book is very enlightening as it discusses two main themes. The first being that the description or breakdown of frequencies of humans from slow and say evil to high and godlike is a great learning experience. The second being that we have the power to get yes-no answers through our own physiology to any question is both unbelievable and noteworthy. I have tried with pendulum to great success, I tried as the author states with another party and did not have the success he had experienced in labs and in conventions. Don't let my one or two experiments speak for your results. Read it for the value it offers in self enlightening purposes alone. It offers the self "consumer reports authority" with you being the reporter. According to the author, with a friend you can evaluate the honesty, durability and goodness of anything. Including this book.
