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.

    "Such a powerful book"

    This book has a profound impact on my life. I reread it every few years. Dr. Hawkins' other books are also great.

    "Mind Blowing!"

    Though the author/speaker reads in a monotone, you get used to it quickly because the content that is delivered far supersedes your awareness of the speakers voice.
    I Highly recommend this book, though I don't recommend reading it to get through it. This is a book you want to absorb the content.

    "Higher Levels of Consciousness"

    Higher levels of consciousness have always intrigued me. Power versus fours gives the Self access to what is possible. Muscle testing has become my new way off identifying truth in the universe. This book provides clear answers to many of Life's difficult questions! Thank you Dr. Hawkins.

    "Foundational to his work"
    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this one on audible because I wanted to hear David Hawkin's voice. The book is one of foundations for his other works, and I found it very valuable and thought provoking. Although I like his last book "Letting Go" slightly better, I am very glad I spent the time to hear this one and reflect once again about the levels of consciousness.

    Story
    "good book, truly painful to listen to!"
    Would you listen to Power vs. Force again? Why?

    Absolutely not. I can't stand the narration.


    What was most disappointing about Dr. David R. Hawkins’s story?

    It seems like his research and work are very important, but when I hear it read by him, I feel like I'm listening to someone reading the dictionary. I find my mind wandering.


    What didn’t you like about Dr. David R. Hawkins’s performance?

    I haven't even finished the book yet, but I honestly don't know if I can due to the painful monotony of his reading. I would love to experience a different reader and see if I feel differently. Fairly dense material should not be read like a textbook...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Extreme reaction to the reading...


    Any additional comments?

    I hope he re-releases this important work with someone else narrating - and perhaps also to make the language slightly more accessible. The combination of the two make it so dry.

    "Information is Amazing! Narration is Horrible!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I love the information so much that I have actually put myself through the horror of listening to the stinking AWFUL narration. Want to poke yourself in the eye boring reading by the author. Think of the absolute worst lecturer you ever lived through and you will understand. Truly a regrettable mistake that this life changing information is being audibly conveyed so poorly.


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

    the emotional scale


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dr. David R. Hawkins’s performances?

    never


    Did Power vs. Force inspire you to do anything?

    buy and read the hard copy of the book myself


    Any additional comments?

    The information is remarkable and this audio book should be re-recorded by a professional!

    "Great Book - Awful Narration"
    What did you like best about Power vs. Force? What did you like least?

    The whole time I was listening I was so annoyed by his voice. Dr. Hawkins is monotone and sounds like he smoked 2 packs a day for the last 30 years. He also sounded like he had a few martinies while he read.

    Come on Hawkins get a narrator, that's what there good at. You are brilliant at what you do but please have a professional narrator read your book. I couldn't get past chapter 3.


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

    The most memorable part is his monotone voice


    What does Dr. David R. Hawkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Annoyance


    Could you see Power vs. Force being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Sure, Lurch from the Adams Family


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, bad narration. Hire a professional narrator.

    "Great Info -Horrible Narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure-it is a fascinating topic and really deserves to be part of a person's library. I cannot believe that the narration cannot be improved.


    What was most disappointing about Dr. David R. Hawkins’s story?

    The Narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator sounded like he was under a pool of scotch.


    Any additional comments?

    This is truly the only book with this information and it would be great to listen to it with another narrator.

    "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.
