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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "essential read for any spiritual aspirant"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Dr Hawkins, his use of kinesiology, interpretation of the non linear vs the linear, duality vs non duality and the map of consciousness over which he calibrates almost anything offers a paradigm shift and lays out groundwork in how to do the inner spiritual work and is a true Guru in all that he selflessly explains and outlines in this foundational book for all the rest of his work which dawns a new level of consciousness for an unbiased seeker of truth.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I'm going to study all his work, or at least as much as I can.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The author has a great sense of humor and points out all that is relevant outlining the many facets of knowledge, causality, ego consciousness and how to transcend it, and an awareness of God through the lens of his work


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Thank you Dr Hawkins, and may God bless you, I wish I could have met Dr Hawkins, though he outlines that the work is more important and did not give much relevance to his own self or importance any more than that which would allow him to do his work.

    "Very interesting and insightful"

    The author's voice didn't bother me that much as it did other reviewers. I thought the material was well presented, not to overly complicated or new-agey. There is a lot of good insight contained within this book that can serve as a guide post towards elevating ones consciousness. I will likely listen to this book every so often, as I'm sure that I'll absorb more and different lessons each time around.

    Story
    "An opportunity to understand more of those why's."
    Would you listen to Power vs. Force again? Why?

    Yes, I am, most every day. The why is there is a lot to get and I get something every time.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Understanding!


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

    His want for you to understand life better. That power is available and God wants me to be aware and make choices with that awareness.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Power vs. Force?

    While for one that I have a brain and I can watch it and alter choices to be happy and walking in the Power that God has for us all.

    Story
    "Must be your topic of interest"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Power vs. Force to be better than the print version?

    For me it is much easier to listen to this type of information as though at a lecture than trying to read it.


    Have you listened to any of Dr. David R. Hawkins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This has to be a topic you are interested in for it to be enjoyable and keep your attention. For me - it was quite fascinating and the tone of the author's voice and reading pace was not relevant.

    Story
    "Paradigm shift required"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, most definitely. While reading the other reviews, there was decidedly negative sense as to the author performing the read. While his voice is a little difficult to become accustomed to, the material is so valuable and the lessons it teaches easily allows one to rise above and appreciate what others seem to have missed.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Learning about the global calibration and the general rise in planetary consciousness.


    Did Dr. David R. Hawkins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not too many actual characters


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Not yet finished, so I'm digging it all thus far.

    "I was so hopefull"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would, if you were to read it, not listen to it. Great content and a lot of information


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Complete distraction. The first persons voice that started the book would have been fantastic. Very engaging. Not Dr Hawkins. He completely ruined the audio. It was hard to not drift. Sometimes authors shouldnt read their own books.


    Did Power vs. Force inspire you to do anything?

    Write a review. 1st ever

    "monotone"
    What did you like best about Power vs. Force? What did you like least?

    this book has SO much valuable information but the author sounds like, well, it is so monotone I fall asleep,


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?


    the information is so valuable in our lives


    How could the performance have been better?


    a little expression


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

    the information needs to be known. maybe a recap with enthusiasm for the message

    Story
    "Fantastic Topic, narration is a bit hard to digest"
    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The research and the implications of this work are Earth-shattering! I had heard about this work via a Wayne Dyer audio, am I very glad I listened to it. I may read the book when I want to review it, as David Hawkins audio recording left me struggling to understand and follow many times.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The words used were very large and scientific, and having someone like David Hawkins read his own work took much of the feeling behind these big words, leaving much room for improvement. I would love to hear another narrator read this work.
