"Despite the New Age-sounding language, Ruiz is refreshingly clear in the presentation of his ideas. Reading aloud, actor Coyote sounds every bit the enthusiastic old hippie, genuinely excited by the concepts he is spinning." (Publishers Weekly)
Ugh. This was completely adolescent. Essentially the author argues that we a socially contructed creatures. Socrates covered this in "The Cave" and existenialist discuss this on a much deeper and better level. Dont waste your time (or money).
Don't waste your time. This was recommended to me by a colleague. As early as the first chapter proved that this was nothing more than a regurgitation of philosophies taught by many, many better known, and higher regarded teachers.
I was disappointed to say the least.
It was a short listen, it provided an interesting view on how powerful our words as human beings can be. Forgettable though, thats about the only thing I remember about it a month or so later after listening to it.
This book read like it was made just for hippies. It was too "out there"
I found it poorly written, and not very well explained. But it had a few insightful philosophies.
A bit "holier than thou" for my tastes.
The kind of book that makes you feel like the author was super high on many drugs while writing it.
I listened for around 45 minutes. Hoping each minute it would become something I could learn from. I couldn't take it anymore and had to shut it off. One of the worst books I've ever listened to, and I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks.
The author basically makes the assertion that every part of us is part of the greater universe, blaugh blaugh blaugh. And then goes on to make it clear he is against all rules, influences, social mores, governmental laws, other people's opinions etc. Basically that we were somehow perfect when we were born and that our parents and society have ruined us.
Basically a bunch of complete crap.
I can' t for the life of me understand how this book has so many good reviews. Its about as profound as a fortune cookie message, or today's horoscope.
It sounds like Danny Trejo speaking. I think you are better off listening to the Power. I was hoping for a lot more but was very disappointed.
