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.

    "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....

    "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

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.
